Schools to allow hijab

THE hijab is in -- but the burqa is out under new policy rules for uniforms in schools. They were drawn up following controversy over the wearing of the hijab, a square of fabric, folded into a triangle, placed over the head and fastened under the chin.

Education Minister Batt O'Keeffe and Integration Minister Conor Lenihan jointly issued agreement recommendations which were drawn up following consultations and a review of the legal position in Ireland.

For fear of a major uprising from the Irish majority, our lapdog leaders of multiculturalism SLOWLY cave in to the demands of the foreign minority.

You and I know this is just the beginning of a complete transformation of the demographic makeup of Ireland.

I'll be goddamned if I'm going to sit back and let this bastard religion proliferate in Ireland.

What happened in France, Germany and England when Muslims were allowed to enter their countries en mass? The same will happen to Ireland. And remember, Ireland has only a fraction of the populace of said countries.

God help Ireland?

God helps those who help themselves!

we are simply heading for a muslim european state, little by little these dam muslims complain and yet time and time again are allowed to have their way and all because governments are afraid of alquida or whatever they are called . we need a government with backbone . This is a chrisian state and people who enter should follow the christian ways.
