    France denies citizenship to a man because he allegedly forced his wife to wear a burqa

    France has denied citizenship to a man because he allegedly forced his wife to wear a full Islamic veil, the French immigration minister said in a statement Wednesday. The man was applying for citizenship in order to join his French wife in France, Immigration Minister Eric Besson said. The man was refused citizenship because he was depriving his wife of the liberty to come and go with her face uncovered, Besson said.
    The decision, made Tuesday, came exactly a week after a French parliamentary commission recommended a partial ban on any veils that cover the face -- including the burqa, the full-body covering worn by some Muslim women.
    The ban -- which has not yet come up for a vote -- would apply in public places like hospitals and schools, and on public transport, the commission announced.
    Foreigners may become French citizens if they marry French nationals and meet certain criteria, including integrating well in French society and having "good morality," Besson said. It is on the criteria of morality that the man's citizenship request was denied, Besson said.

    France does some things right, apparently.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    The Muslim population in France assimilates, or they GTFO.

    I'm no fan of France at all, but they are assertive about being French, and that I can respect.
