Now France is jailing people for holding out for common sense. How could this tobacconist have known for sure that he was delivering the order to the right customer? France is racing to submit to sharia, like much of the rest of the Western world. Many Americans, too, have already internalized the idea that resisting jihad terror is “islamophobia,” and that wearing the hijab or niqab is a “choice,” despite the massive number of women who have been brutalized or even killed for not wearing it. And now this — jailing those who still hold to some semblance of French culture.
“3 months in jail required for the tobacconist who demanded that her client remove her veil,” translated from “3 mois de prison requis pour la buraliste qui exigeait que sa cliente retire son voile,” Le Figaro, May 24, 2018 (thanks to Alexandre):
A tobacconist who had refused to deliver a parcel to a veiled Muslim woman on the grounds that she could not confirm her identity appeared today in the Albi Criminal Court. The plaintiff explained that her face remained visible when she presented her identity card to pick up her package last April. The prosecutor required a three-months suspended sentence and a fine of 3,000 euros. The court will render its judgment on June 28.
