Louise-Marie Suisse, possibly
The Daily Mail, clueless as ever, doesn’t know a burqa from a niqab. As is clear from the above photo, assuming that it is she, the lovely Louise-Marie Suisse is wearing a niqab, not a burqa.
She converted to Islam and ended up biting a policeman. Did she somehow overlook the Qur’an’s many exhortations to peace and tolerance? Why, it’s unheard of!
Open defiance — what will the French do now? Fold, most likely. How dare they try to preserve their own culture, anyway?
“Teenager, 18, sentenced for biting officer while being arrested for wearing a niqab appears in French appeal court”¦ in burkha,” from the Daily Mail, October 25 (thanks to Benedict):
A French teenager who was sentenced for biting a police officer while being arrested for wearing a niqab has appeared in court at her appeal hearing with the veil on.
Louise-Marie Suisse was stopped by two police officers near a mosque in the centre of Marseille in late July, for wearing a niqab – full-face veil – in breach of a ban introduced in 2011.
The court heard the 18-year-old refused to cooperate with the police when asked to produce identity papers.
Violations are punishable by a fine of up to 150 euros (Â£128) or mandatory citizenship training.
Police have four hours to consider whether an offender should be fined.
The ban includes all garments which cover the eyes, although scarves, hats, and sunglasses are excluded. As well as a mosque, Muslims are able to put on a veil in the privacy of their own homes, a hotel room, or a car as long as they are not driving.
She admitted biting one of the officers during an altercation.
