Muslim Police

Much huffing and puffing in the media over news that a muslim police officer had been given permission not to guard the Israel Embassy. Also even more on Jack Straw's comments on finding the niqab and other veils worn by Muslim women unnerving.

We are left waiting for two other pieces of news. First that, in the light of the perceived need for total surveillance, everyone will have to go naked in public. Second the fuss that will ensue when a Muslim woman police officer seeks to wear a veil.
