    That's unfortunate that you think that. Perhaps professional, unbiased language itself conveys a form of apathetic bias for you? I have no idea.
    Language isn't the only medium through which a journalist can display bias.

    Lets assume, then, that the Daily Mail and the Guardian are both professional, unbiased newspapers. Why, then, do they report the same news so differently?

    German's have a colourful history of racism in their country in the run up to certain world wars, not surprised by this.
    Wanting the burqa banned is not racist.

    Honestly those burqa's look scary, I don't mind the ones which show their eyes but those look really alarming. Sorry if this comment sounds racist - but those look over the top compared to the ones I've seen.

    If it's not socially acceptable to wear a balaclava or a motorcycle helmet in public, shopping centres and banks you shouldn't be able to wear a burka or a niqab either, imo.

    If these Holocaust survivors are so concerned about these refugees, advocating of course they all must go to Europe. Then why don't they go to Israel hmm?

    For Israel is to remain Jewish. Europe is to be destroyed. That has been their agenda, schemed up by the Jews long ago.

    Sooner or later, British people have to accept that the biggest mistake we ever made was fighting the Germans.

    Hitler was not the enemy of our people. Germans were not our enemy.

    Why should I care of the persecution of Jews, knowing what the Jews have done to others?
    what if i told you the whole jewish conspiracy is bs

    Literally the least surprising political act of recent times.

    Merkel sells the Germans mass immigration, the actual German people see their leaders cover up immigrant crime (cologne etc) and rally against what they see as the common factor of this 'protected class' who commit crimes notable by cultural difference ie a beheading or the loss of a hand for thievery is normal in hardline muslim countries whereas its hated in Europe so we notice more. Same principle, they have different consent laws and opinions of 'legal age', roles in society and cultural practices which mesh badly. I won't engage the debate about criminality as a whole, I have no idea how they think (though the crimes seem opportunistic and in rejection of the law, therefore I'd argue intent criminality), but the point is their 'crimes' are abhorrent by European standards.

    This perception of a privileged class over the indigenous population whom the people cannot legitimately politically oppose leads to partisan simplifications ie ban mosques, ban the burka. When sensible solutions or ideas are shot down as 'racist' and 'islamophobic' people stop caring and go for the lowest common denominator, x is different so end x practice. This is obvious to most people, but not politicians. People judge by their immediacy.

    You should care, because millions of lives were lost. People were treated like cattle: worked to death and sent to the slaughter house.

    Regardless of whatever conspiracy you've been duped into believing, you can surely understand that amongst the millions killed in WW2, there were innocent people. Children, babies, mothers, fathers. Tortured, murdered, raped, abused.

    Shall we kill all Muslims because of Isis? All the Irish because of the IRA? The Basque because of ETA? You know what, a ginger was rude me yesterday - should we kill all the gingers?

    If you support genocide, you are utter scum.

    Given that 39% of Muslims believe a woman should always obey their husband in the UK alone, I believe the banning of the Burqa is a progressive step in empowering the most oppressed community in this country.
    That is Islam.

    According to the Quran, if you don't obey your husband, he can beat you. Have to say, this one paragraph alone makes me wonder how on earth any woman can call herself a Muslim. 4.34
    "Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand."

    Nobody else is allowed to cover their face, so why should they have that right? I have no problem with the other things they wear, but covering your face is sinister to say the least.

    ngl im muslim myself and I think the niqab should be banned in Europe. The burqa is just a cover for the whole body except your hands and face. The niqab is the veil covering the face. For the safety of Europe, I'd be much wiser to ban the niqab in all European countries which does not affect muslim women much rather than to ban the burqa which restricts a muslim woman from following her religion. That way, it'd wont be harsh on muslim women.

    There was some petition a while back where Muslims were signing up to ban the burka because it wasn't a compulsory form of clothing in Islam or something. It needed about 2500 signatures to go onto the council but it got closed just before it reached that number.

    Most likely more than you since I have many Muslim friends who fully cover out of choice, even when their own mothers do not.

    Lol so obeying your husband is seen as a bad thing? Oh dear, no wonder this country has so many failed marriages.

    ^^That link is 5 main reasons as to why people divorce in the UK. Not "obeying" your husband doesn't come up on there sadly enough. Note how one of the reasons is "lack of equality" as well.

    So stop complaining about how bad it is here. If you want to be a submissive housewife, then run off to a Muslim country.

    It's just pitiful you'd choose to blindly follow a man and view women as something like dogs who have to obey their masters.

    Very true. Has anyone seen Lauren Booth being interviewed? She stands up for the rights of Muslim women, even though she's a rich, white, very middle class woman living in the UK. She has choices, unlike a lot of the women she claims to represent. Honestly, she's full of sh!t and hypocrisy and makes me feel sick.

    A worrying new poll has indicated that over 80% of Nazis Germans don't want to see a full body veil in public places, threatening Germany's reputation as a progressive country of 2016
    well, this means that 20% of Germany"s Nazis are amazingly tolerant and open-minded

    who would have thought that ?
