“Sensitivity” trumps common sense in Dhimmi Britain. From the Committee to Defend Women’s Rights in the Middle East (scroll down), with thanks to cgiddensjr:
On Monday, April 26, British Home Secretary, David Blunkett unveiled plans for a national pilot of biometric testing, the technology used in ID cards, as part of a draft Bill to crack down on identity fraud….
As Blunkett came under severe attacks for not allowing enough debate over the ID cards introduction, British officials made it clear that if Muslim women do not want to reveal their faces in public, that would be respected, reported the Observer Sunday. “Instead of a photograph, there would be an exemption for certain people, who would only have to give fingerprint and iris-recognition data.
A source close to Blunkett was quoted by the Observer as saying, “We have had constructive discussions with the Muslim community and want to assure them we are sensitive to their points of view”.
