Compare and Contrast

Egypt bans mosque preachers. 

Meanwhile, in America...

I don't have a problem with religious headgear per se.

I do have a problem with the niqab.

And, I have a problem with how the problem is defined.

The hijab is either a religious imperative ("I have to wear this for my religion.") or not ("The hijab is a woman's free choice, completely free choice.")

It can't be both.
