Male Robber Wore Burqa

Police are hunting a man who robbed a post office in Sheffield - dressed in a burqa:
A ROBBER dressed in a woman's Islamic headdress and open-toed sandals stole cash from a post office in Sheffield.

The weapon-wielding raider threatened the sub-postmaster at Tinsley Post Office and forced him to hand over money before running off on Sheffield Road.

Post Office Ltd are offering up to £5,000 for information leading to a successful prosecution.

Police said the male suspect, who was Asian, burst into the shop at 5.30pm on Tuesday.

He was slim, 5ft 9ins tall and wore dark glasses, a knee-length, dark hijab and a dress with a light pattern. He carried a Burberry-style rucksack.

Call DC Russ Batteson on 0114 296 3449 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

It just shows how correct French President Sarkozy is in wanting to have the burqa banned. It has everything wrong with the concept and nothing correct - it is only a historic excuse and not Qur'anic.

Mind you, we have to give this crim a point for cleverness - but now you will get copy-cats - from all walks of society.

No one should be allowed to go about in public with their face covered as a matter of course. This is the way of bandits. This is why we have banned such in the West for hundreds of years.

At least the police have provided numbers where they can be contacted. I suggest that if you see someone in a Burqka then call the police so that they can brought in for questioning.

Muslims and their culture belong in Muslim countries. There would then be no conflict - either with Western values, or with Muslim ones.

Each to his own or her own. The biggest mistake the West has made in its history, is to have allowed in millions of Muslims to settle here. They have, as is quite normal, brought their own religious, cultural, and tribal values, that are now in conflict with the West, to the detriment of all. This is a no-win situation for everone.
