A Moroccan woman who was denied French citizenship because of “insufficient assimilation.” Among other things, Faiza Silmi wears a niqab. A report indicates that “she lives in total submission to the men of her family, and the notion of questioning this submission does not even occur to her.”
So who do people think of when they think of submission? Why, the Japanese!
One cannot help but wonder if Faiza Mabchour had been named Haruko Tanaka and appeared before the commissaire in a silk kimono walking five paces behind her French husband, whether the French court would have reached the same result.
