LOL he went to a school to praise Muslims for integrating into German society and yet they won't even shake his hand. That is how we do things here, we shake hands. That's our culture. Don't like it, get out.

I don't think shaking hands is a primarily western thing...

I think it may be an unwritten rule which states that women can't shake hands with people of the opposite sex. But I don't know for definite, she may have been snubbing him because of the proposed burka ban

I can understand if it's because of her religion but refusing to shake hands is impolite. As long as she explains why she doesn't want to, it's fine.

Well they're clearly not integrating properly. A handshake between people (man or woman) is an imperative sign of respect (amongst other things) in the West.

Poor subordinate women of the Muslim faith

You've got to love how a Western woman visiting places like Dubai has to cover up and abide by Islamic law, but when Muslim women fly over here they never get the same treatment, and it's their men oppressing them...

I'm starting to sound like a Feminist harpy, but it's all true.

So neither the President nor the student is allowed to try to shake the other's hand? Is it because of the man's corrupting influence?

Her husband would probably beat her ass if she dared to touch another mans hand

May be. But not her face - it is forbidden in Islam. :cool:

Oh ffs guys... not only is it a religious thing its a cultural thing... i dont see why this is such a problem. Opposite sexes are not supposed to make physical contact according to both Islam and their culture. She put her hand on her heart and bowed in respect. That in itself is an act of respect.
So don't go round saying its disrespectful because it just isn't. Also the rule is the same for men. No need to make a big deal out of it, there are bigger issues in the world -_-

Obviously you didn't read the part that told you the president was visiting the school only to congratulate it on being such a shining example of teaching immigrants how integrate well into western culture. Clearly, if that institution is a beacon of light in the darkness the Germans are in for a very dim winter.

Again, going on about inequality when I've just told you the ruling is the same.

You couldn't be more wrong.

Women don't have to cover up.

You'll find women wearing the most explicit clothing on their beaches.

If you can't handle difference of opinion, why don't you?

His fate was sealed the moment his father's sperm met his mother's egg, just as the German Chancellor's sex was determined as a female at the equivalent moment in her life.
