Some hundreds of demonstrators in various cities worldwide are protesting what they insist on calling French ban on the veil. They insist on deceiving their constituencies by refusing to tell them that the ban includes a ban on skull-caps and large crosses. It is amazing that some Muslim groups are more outraged about this French plan than about US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and about what Israel is doing in Palestine. What disoriented priorities.
