The Netherlands has passed a limited ban on “face-covering clothing,” including Islamic veils and robes such as burqas, but not nijabs, which do not cover the face.

The measure can is being largely credited to the work of far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who has pushed for this issue for over a decade.
Sen. Marjolein Faber-Van de Klashorst stated that it was “a historical day because this is the first step to de-Islamize the Netherlands,” and went on to state that the next step is to close all Mosques in the Netherlands.
The Dutch law is describes as “politically-neutral,” and effects very few people in the country. It is believed that only a few hundred women in the Netherlands wear burqas in the first place.
It doesn’t just ban burqas, but any garment that covers the face, including sky masks and full-face helmets. The ban is only effective in public places, and does not extend to private property.
The Netherlands are not the first country to enact a ban on Islamic clothing like burqas. There are burqa bans in at least nine European countries.
Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
