I must note that your view of the incident is vastly different then the one retold by media or the witnesses. I dont know if that bothers you or not.
You appear hellbent on rejecting the notion that those good migrants might have done something to provoke this. It's those retarded Corsicans...you almost said it...only nicer.
as for Muslim women and men being "all over their naked bodies"...I think you got the regions confused.
Here in the west most of us are pretty used to seeing naked bodies...female and male alike. We dont walk around beaches with huge erections just because there are women sunbathing.
If we want to address rape stats...I think you would do your self good and ask why this culture is endorsing women wearing "full body armor"...it's because back home where she came from...she would get stoned or raped for not wearing it.

What i took from this story?... People shouldn't take # from radicals who want to push their views on everyone else, and that includes gun grabbers.

Exactly. The way events happen is directly related to context. We make mistakes in interpretation if we don't take time to learn the particular context of the event.

On Sunday August 14, 2016, Bernard Cazeneuve, French Interior Minister, issued the following statement after a violent clash between locals and Muslim immigrants on the island of Corsica: "A violent confrontation, the circumstances and motives of which will be determined by a police investigation, erupted on Saturday evening in Sisco, Upper Corsica, between local residents and a group of around ten out-of-towners. The four people injured, including a pregnant woman, were evacuated to the hospital in Bastia. Their injuries are not life-threatening. Three vehicles were set on fire causing major disruption of traffic and a brush fire was rapidly brought under control." According to eyewitness accounts reported in the French media, on the evening of Saturday, August 13, a group of young Corsicans waged a battle with a group of Muslims at a beach next to Sisco. The fight broke out after women wearing burkinis were photographed by a tourist, provoking the Muslims to retaliate with insults and cries of " Allah Akbar." They then began throwing stones at the tourists and a group of Corsican teenagers further along the beach. The Muslim men, aged around 40, then began to hit the teenagers, one of whom was wounded by a blow from a machete.
A village on the French island of Corsica became the third place in France to ban burqinis after the female Muslim swimwear reportedly caused a violent brawl between locals and migrants of North African origin there.
The spat began when tourists took a picture of a group of 10 North Africans, including a pregnant woman and children, who were sitting on a beach.
The women were reportedly wearing burqinis. According to BFMTV, the people were Moroccan nationals living in Corsica.
The North Africans made it clear that they didn’t want to be photographed, but a group of some 40 Corsicans arrived later and also started a discussion that escalated into a confrontation.
Stones and bottles were reportedly thrown at the North Africans and three of their vehicles were burned.
The French Interior Ministry later said that at least four people, including a pregnant woman, had been injured in the brawl. France 3 Corsica put the number injured at five, two of whom were Corsicans and three of North African origin.

I'm not saying it didn't happen. Just how accurate your article is.

Deal with the fact it's illegal. If it offends you, go swimming somewhere that it's not frowned upon to swim in your natural form.
Arguing yourself into a hole here. I posed a question, and you're having a hissy fit. And you still didn't answer me. Should they go the extra mile & ban fashion scarves & wetsuits in France so the modest-inclined can't improvise? Dry suits, too? What does banning any of it accomplish?
I did not use that phrase, and frankly, have no idea what you mean by that.
I know some muslim women. They don't like having strange creepy men slobbering while staring at their nude body.
They prefer to cover it up and be able to play with their kids, hang out, or go to the beach without that creepy attention.
I don't feel it it fair to tell a woman she MUST expose her nude body to all strangers who wish to see it.
I bring american visitors to the beach often. ALL the women so far have been uncomfortable revealing their breasts there and refused to do so.
Do not tell the women they have no right to protect themselves from it.
