    The Q'oran only requires modest loose dress for both sexes, and a head covering.  Women are supposed to wear a head veil that they can draw across to cover their jewelry. The face veil originated in Persia and in Byzantium, neither of which were Muslim. The only women required to wear it were the Prophet's wives.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
