UK's Blair Says Veils Keep Muslims from Fully Integrating

Hosted by

France has outlawed Islamic head scarves and other forms of religious dress on the grounds that they divide people against one another. To weeks ago, former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said Muslim women should remove their veils when they enter his office in the House of Commons. Yesterday, Britain's Tony Blair joined the heated controversy calling veils a "mark of separation" that make people from other backgrounds feel uncomfortable.
