Mexico Celebrates Día de la Revolución 2013
November 20 marks the date in 1910 when the movement to overthrow Mexican dictator Porfirio Díaz began. The Mexican Revolution brought the end of 34 years of military rule, but came at the expense of a 10-year civil war in which various parties struggled to gain power and define social organization for the country. Finally, representatives emerged with the Mexican Constitution of 1917 and Álvaro Obregón ascended as the new president in 1920.
Now, the day is known as Día de la Revolución (Day of the Revolution) and stands as a national holiday in Mexico. Many schoolchildren dress in the historical outfits of revolutionary heroes, while parades and civic ceremonies mark the holiday throughout the country. The largest of these take place at the Plaza de la Constitución (Zócalo) in Mexico City.
Swiss region bans full-face veils
Voters in Switerzland’s Italian-speaking region of Ticino have backed a proposal to ban full-face veils, marking the first time any of the country’s 26 cantons have imposed such a ban, Agence France-Presse reports.
Echoing bans in France and Belgium, the measure does not single out Muslims directly.
It states that “no-one may mask or hide their face on the public highway, nor in places open to the public, except places of worship, nor those offering a public service”.
But in a clear nod to the Islamic tradition of veils for women, it adds that “no-one may require another person to cover their face for reasons of gender.”
Refusing to be critical about femininity because you like being feminine means not considering all the women that are hurt when they can’t or don’t preform the femininity expected of them, and that is some pretty intense “I’ve got mine” behavior.

The biggest issue I have with Muslims trying to present the Prophet’s cultural habits as “Emulating his example” is it makes Arab Culture inherently appear as this Heavenly lifestyle. Apparently, if you chose to be any other type of culture, you aren’t emulating the…
