It is hypocritical, and in that sense western countries are so much better simply because they are much more inclusive.

I would only change "Arab" with "Conservative people of all faith"

Liberals by definition are open to all kinds of people. Thats why they even let in burqa loving conservatives into their free societies...thinking that the love and respect will be reciprocated by these conservatives in return. This is a recipe for disaster because conservatives by definition are not open to new ideas and once they grow in number and power they will either force you to conform to their ways or force you to flee the country.

In one sentence:

I don't have any problem if a woman wants to wear a Burqa/Niqab for whatever reason unless she is oppressed to do so by someone else.

Interesting Hansen said the same about liberal governments and 2nd that when the Muslim conservatives get in its my way or the highway.
BUT i don't think it will happen in Australia,more Chinese and Indian immigrants than Islamic 1's.
The Islamic groups have now showed their hand on the same sex debate.
But as usual the christians are the 1's being called bigots for supporting the No case.
Its interesting that Muslims align themselves with left wing groups,feminists are silent in this debate.
Interestingly a poll recently had Australians majority banning the burqua.
