In the increasingly tense stand off between sharia demanding Muslims alongside far leftist fellow travelers, and Europeans who wish to retain their own cultures, the Muslim swimsuit called the "burkini" is the newest hot-button issue. In this interview, an aggressively leftist French TV host challenges former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who explains that Islamic dress is a provocation and not a right.
In the interview, the riots in Corsica are mentioned where Muslims actually claimed an area of beach with "Musllm only" signage and threw off a tourist couple as the woman was topless. Violence followed.
That event was likely the inspiration for multiple bannings of burkinis on public beaches since across much of Western Europe.
