France, lately indistinguishable from Saudi Arabia to many Americans, is considering banning the hijab from public schools. The idea gained steam when two girls were expelled from a suburban high school for wearing their veils, which the school termed “clothing of an ostentatious nature.” The Muslim girls’ father, Laurent Levy – yes, he’s Jewish – denounced the expulsion as “anti-secular.” And leading the charge for the rights of religion in French schools? The Revolutionary Communist League. Hadi Yahmed sorts it out for Islam Online.
