Letter: France is a country of hypocrites

I read in the paper the other day that French President Nicolas Sarkozy is working on outlawing the burqa that is worn by Muslim women. It is something that is a part of the Muslim faith, and the fact that the French are insisting that all immigrants to their country change their customs to meet the French ideal is interesting, considering the French are always accusing the United States of destroying the cultures of many other nations.

The French also love to accuse the United States of being intolerant of the Muslim faith in particular due to Gitmo. This has got to be the biggest case of hypocrisy that I have ever heard of in my life, and I deal with young kids on a daily basis.
