no, can't say i remember.
did you take off your underwear?
don't forget you are talking to infidels .
You don't get it. You can't get it. Its a very private thing for most women. I mean I've seen people cry because they couldn't handle the fact that TSA groped their hair. When your government tells you, that in order to receive education you have to take off a certain part of your clothes or change the way you look, its intrusive and unnecessary.
If the government had let the establishments, or schools determine some kind of uniform code, that would have been acceptable, but the government has no right to tell people how to dress or what to wear. Its very discouraging to a nation thats trying to move forward.
Oh and I don't consider anyone an 'infidel'. There is a famous saying in Turkish: 'You never know who has these two things: money, and faith'. So its not up to me to judge.
Edit: Those Muslims in the article look like tourists to me. Egyptian ones probably.edit on 1-9-2011 by nusnus because: (no reason given)

Some people seem to believe that they can do anything they want as long as they proclaim it their religion. Guess what? If your religion interferes with some rules, it is YOUR problem, and nobody has any obligation to accomodate you. Freedom of religion is an example of a NEGATIVE liberty.
