Republican Bigotry

'By bluntly insisting that France’s republican values are under threat from a thousand or so women who wear full-face veils, a parliamentary commission that submitted a report opposing the practice on Tuesday merely succeeded in cheapening those values.' See the rest of this fine editorial in today's Financial Times.

Could it be that the veil is seen as representing the strict Sharia law interpretation of Islam and as such would consist as a threat to any Republic?
