Physical assaults by neo-Nazi groups on Muslim women who wear hijab, headscarves or burkas are on the rise in France, Press TV reports.
In the latest incident, a young Muslim woman was attacked in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil for wearing a veil on June 13.
On June 17, her lawyer announced that the 21-year-old, who was four months pregnant, suffered a miscarriage and lost her baby.
A "full covered" niqab woman was stopped for identity purposes by cops in Argenteuil (France), when suddenly a mob of Muslims assaulted the cops. The situation went quickly out of control (cops had to leave the scene and come back with special units). Muslims mobbed the area after postings on Twitter, Facebook and other social media, urged all muslim people in the area of Argenteuil to come and protest against police. The burka has been banned.
A 23-year-old man filed a complaint on the 8th of June after having been attacked the previous evening at 9.30 pm in a city tramway by two strangers. They struck him several times on the face because he was eating a ham sandwich. The two attackers, who claimed to be Muslims, said they were offended by this consumption of pork in front of their eyes before attacking the young man. A witness, a friend of the young man who was present when the incident occurred, has been interviewed by the investigators and has confirmed the reality of the attack. The two attackers, who fled, have not yet been found. The CCTV tapes in the tramway are currently being examined.
A 22-year-old Muslim convert has reportedly confessed to the attempted murder of a French soldier in Paris at the weekend.
The subject of an intense manhunt since the Saturday stabbing, the suspect was arrested on Wednesday. Prosecutors claimed he immediately admitted the act, which he said was inspired by his religious teachers and was designed to strike at an “authority figure.”
Side Question - Your source Press TV. It's the mouthpiece of the Iranian government propaganda machine. Do you have access to any news sources or just the Iranian government? The Neo Nazis in France attack everyone who doesn't think like them. The radical muslims in France do the same. Does Press TV acknowledge that or report it? Just wondering ....
Neo-Nazi groups have also attacked those French citizens who support the rights of ethnic and religious minorities in the country.

Your post should be taken seriously. You live there and experience the culture.
Your input on the subject is invaluable. I'm glad you posted ...edit on 6/21/2013 by FlyersFan because: (no reason given)
Maybe if people respected the law over here that states that hijab and burkas not be worn in public areas, sad events like this would not happen... After all, when a non Muslim goes to a muslim country he/she has to respect the law too no?
However wearing feudal Islamic garb in an Islamic country if fine, but if you choose to take yourself into a non Islamic country to live and you flaunt your religion by wearing this garb, then you have responsibility for how you are recieved by non Islamic people.
I see no more difference between Islamic extremist and these idiots.
