Councillors of the nationalist Patriotic Front coalition in the city of Plovdiv are drafting new laws to stop women wearing the full face veil. 

It comes just days after similar restrictions were initiated in Pazardzhik, and the first to follow was the central Bulgarian city of Stara Zagora, the fifth largest in the European country. 

If the law is passed, those who continue to wear Islamic headwear could face fines ranging from £116 to £202. 

A second offence will come with a heftier fine of between £405 and £608.

Plovdiv has Bugaria’s largest ghetto, the Stolipinovo neighbourhood, which is home to more than 40,000 people, mostly of Roma origin. 

Because of this, local councillors from the nationalists VMRO party proposed the ban as a “precautionary measure”. 

Aleksander Sidi, a councillor from VMRO, said: “This way of dressing means following the policies of jihadists, which they are trying to push through in Europe and Bulgaria.”

The city’s Mayor Ivan Totev has reportedly said he would back the ban.

The plans were put forward by Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov who called for the veil to be banned in public places.

Advocates of the bill maintain that veils pose a serious security risk.

However opponents argue Muslim women would be discouraged from integrating into society.

The regulations already passed by the two Bulgarian cities does not name specific garments as being prohibited, rather they ban any garment which covers the face in a way that makes it difficult for police to identify the wearer.

These new restrictions are now in force in most public places such as schools, parks, on public transport and shops.

The spread of a ban throughout Bulgaria sets the stage for an upcoming vote in parliament on a new draft law that would ban Muslim face-covering garments nationwide, which was proposed by the Patriotic Front.

Such laws are already in place in France, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands and plans afoot to follow suit in Switzerland. 

British Prime Minister David Cameron has been repeatedly urged to outlaw the Islamic garment here in Britain, with opinion polls consistently showing around two thirds of the public would support a ban. 

UKIP deputy leader Paul Nuttall said there was “no question” veils should be banned anywhere where identity needs to be known, and Britain should join other nations in banning the burka.

But Downing Street said there was “no need” to follow suit.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
