Islam's Not So Teenie Weenie Bikini.

A London district council has rescinded rules that forced all women, regardless of religion, to wear the so-called burkini (or burquini) — an outfit consisting of head scarf, tunic and trousers.

The rules were put in place for weekend swimming sessions geared to Muslims in which swimmers had to meet the dress code required by Islamic custom.

Across the English Channel, France has taken the opposite approach to the burkini. A 35-year-old woman was recently evicted from a pool outside Paris for wearing the head-to-toe swimwear because it is considered unhygienic. The woman has vowed to take legal action.

The trouble in France follows President Nicolas Sarkozy's recent call to ban burkas.

Why do the British and the rest of the Europeans stand by and allow their culture to be destroyed piece by piece.
