PARIS (Nov. 17) — French President Nicolas Sarkozy says there is no place for full face and body veils such as the burqa, or for the debasement of women, in France.
“Becoming French means adhering to a form of civilization, to values, to morals,” Sarkozy said.
Sarkozy said Thursday during a speech on national identity that “France is a country where there is no place for the burqa.”
“However,” the French President continued, “we are totally in favor of hot women wearing exciting underwear.”
“There is definitely a place for sexy lingerie in France,” Sarkozy concluded.
