Der Spiegel: Integration Case: Court to Rule on Swim Lessons for Muslim Girls

“…seven percent of Muslim girls don’t attend co-ed swimming lessons, and roughly half of their families give religious reasons for this absenteeism.”

The seven percent should be forced to attend co-ed swimming lessons, or get a failing grade. Little “Aisha” said she is offended by the sight of bare chested boys in swimming shorts, and thinks the full-body burquini is ugly. Her family is worried that wearing the burquini will lead to ridicule and isolation, making integration more difficult.

The family is wrong. Refusing to participate in normal German activities makes integration difficult. If the family is so sensitive and offended by German practices, they should return to Morocco.
