The story on the Muslim beach battle that took place on August 14 in Corsica is evolving.
On August 14, The Rebel posted this item about the skirmish on a beach in Corsica.
The original explanation involved a tourist photographing Muslims in the Islamic swim costume dubbed the "burkini". Muslims objected to that photo, and resorted to violence.
But as reported at The Rebel on August 18, Muslims actually attacked because a woman went topless on the beach in an area they had declared "Islamic."
Three Moroccan brothers are now charged with armed assault. The state prosecutor says they definitely stated the brawl:
According to Mr. Bessone, three Muslim brothers arrived on the beach on Saturday with their female companions and attempted to "privatize" it.
The Muslim women, contrary to initial press reports, were not wearing burkinis but were swimming in full Islamic dress.
The first incidents broke out early in the day when the Muslims put up a no entry sign to keep people from coming on to the beach.
A couple already on the beach were forced to leave, as were two young boys canoeing in the creek. Tourists, including a Belgian who took a photograph and local passers-by who got too close were insulted, threatened and pelted with stones.
According to Corsican blogger Arnaud Seassari, the couple was "forced off the beach" because the woman was topless.
On Wednesday evening, around 500 people, including local politicians, assembled outside the Borgo gendarme station to show their support for the two villagers being interrogated.
Governments across Europe are starting to ban the Muslim ladies "burkini" to at least appear to be doing something about the problem.
A village mayor in Corsica has banned full-body swimsuits known as "burkinis" after a beach brawl between families of North African descent and local youths.
The ban was imposed at a special council session on Sunday in Sisco amid tensions over the brawl, in which five people were hurt.
Geert Wilders also proposes a ban on burkas ad burkinis, calling it a uniform of oppression, and the moral equivalent someone walking around in a Waffen-SS uniform.
Nadia Sminate, a Flemish MP of mixed Moroccan and Flemish origin has called for an outright ban on the swimsuit known as the burkini throughout the region.
A member of the right-leaning New Flemish Alliance (N-VA) and chair of the Radicalization Committee in the Flemish Parliament, Sminate was quoted by De Standaard, a Flemish daily as saying:
“I do not think women want to walk around on the beach with such a monstrosity in the name of their faith.”
Cannes mayor bans burkini on French Riviera resort following waterpark backlash
BURKINIS have been banned on a French Riveria resort “to respect secularism” just days after a Burkini-only day in Marseille was cancelled.
A ruling in the idyllic city of Cannes has outlawed the full-body swimsuits, often worn by Muslim women.
The move, by mayor David Lisnard, comes just days after a water park in Marseille cancelled a Burkini-only day due to widespread backlash.
The French are taking more aggressive stance towards the wearing of Islamic face coverings on French streets, as this next video shows.
The person began filming after this event began, but a description claims that she was stopped and asked for ID by French police.
She may have been wearing a face cover at the start of the incident, which is illegal in France.
Previously, The Rebel has covered the issue of burka bans in many articles:
Canada faced the problem of wearing a disguise while voting or swearing an oath. Here is one of the Rebel posts on that critical issue from the last election.
