There are those on the left like the Green Party in Austria who view taking any precautionary measures in protecting the homeland against a terrorist attack as being discriminatory until there is a terrorist attack, then the conversation turns (as it did in Manchester), why didn’t the authorities do more?
The “catch-22” scenario, which can best be described as a “self-defeating course of action” is the predicament Europe finds itself in today, and what Austria is hoping to avoid with a new law banning Muslim woman from wearing the traditional “burqas”, the Islamic dress which in most cases conceals an individual from head to toe.
The black Islamic garb which has produced death and destruction in the Middle East can easily conceal weapons and suicide vests, will be outlawed as of October.
The new law states unequivocally: “Those who are not prepared to accept Enlightenment values will have to leave our country and society.”
The penalty for any woman who disregards the law will be fined €150, which is the equivalent of $168. The law specifically bans the “burqa” and the “niqab” from being worn in public places.
Obviously, the law has been met with resistance from leftist fruitcakes, namely the Green Party, which proclaims Muslim refugees are being discriminated against and also from the Nationalist Freedom Party calling the law “window dressing” claiming the law is simply a guise designed to stop the rise in the polls for the party.
Moreover, the decree mandates new arrivals must now enroll in a 12-month “integration course,” which will include learning how to converse in basic German and forbid any individual from handing out “radical materials” and they must also do some volunteer work, in order to receive government benefits, before any work permits are given
Alois Stoger of the Social Democratic Party said: “Work is one of the most important factors for successful integration, which is why we are not only breaking down language barriers with this policy – we are also creating a continuous integration concept for the first time.”
