French officials have banned a Muslim woman from swimming in a public pool while wearing a swimsuit that covers her entire body

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8197917.stm

A very interesting aspect to this story is that the woman recently converted to Islam. Her husband is not Islamic. Therefore this woman is choosing to follow the Islamic and is not being directed to do so.

The woman is claiming, as expected, discrimination on religious grounds but as we often stress, she choose to be different
