It remains to be seen whether France's pussified police will actually enforce it however:

Police admitted they were enforcing the ban "extremely cautiously" because of fears of provoking violence.

They fear Muslim extremists will use the law to provoke fights with officers, while rich visitors from countries such as Saudi Arabia will also cause trouble.

"The law will be very difficult to apply on certain estates," said Patrice Ribeiro, of the Synergie police union.

Referring to two Paris suburbs where riots regularly break out because of alleged discrimination against Muslims, Mr Ribeiro said: "I can't see police going to book dozens of veiled women doing their shopping in Venissieux or in Trappes.

"It will be the same when a police officer is about to arrest a veiled Saudi who is about to go into Louis Vuitton on the Champs Elysees. In all cases, the forces of order will have to be measured and cautious in their behaviour."

Mohamed Douhane, another Paris police officer, said he and his colleagues also "expected provocation by a minority". He added: "Fundamentalist movements are eager to raise the stakes. The police know they will be held responsible for any public order disturbances."
Police have already been warned not to arrest women in or around mosques, and "citizen's de-veilings" are also banned.

The strict instructions, from Interior Minister Claude Guent, are contained in a nine page circular issued to officers.


Isn't it odd how eager Europe's police forces are to go after anyone who insults, criticises or in any way offends Muslims but when it comes to applying the law against Muslims, suddenly they need to apply "sensitivity" or "flexibility"?
