France rejects veiled Muslim wife

hmmm, not exactly sure what to think of this. The French accuse this woman of "insufficient assimilation" but is that really any reason to deny her citizenship?! On the other hand, she's living a life (according to this small article) in seclusion and as a servant to her in laws, not a life of dawah in a non-Muslim country, I mean how much dawah can you do with your face covered?

France rejects veiled Muslim wife

Faiza M was described to be living "virtually as a recluse"
A French court has denied citizenship to a Muslim woman from Morocco, ruling that her practice of "radical" Islam is not compatible with French values.
The 32-year-old woman, known as Faiza M, has lived in France since 2000 with her husband - a French national - and their three French-born children.
Social services reports said the burqa-wearing Faiza M lived in "total submission to her male relatives".
Faiza M said she has never challenged the fundamental values of France.
Her initial application for French citizenship was rejected in 2005 on the grounds of "insufficient assimilation" into France.
She appealed, and late last month the Conseil d'Etat, France's highest administrative body which also acts as a high court, upheld the decision to deny her citizenship.

I agree with you. I don't like the face cover itself, but the French law seems to be symbolic of wiping out Islam, little by little.
