No Burquinis in French Swimming Pools

Burquinis may be the height of Muslim fashion, but don't try wearing them to public pools in France:

French officials say a Muslim woman wearing a head-to-toe swimsuit has been denied access to a public swimming pool in a town southeast of Paris.
Emerainville Mayor Alain Kelyor said Wednesday the 35-year-old woman was not allowed to swim in the pool wearing a so-called "burquini" covering her body from head to toe.
Officials say the outfit is unhygienic and potentially harmful to other swimmers.
The woman, a convert to Islam, has complained to police that the ban is discriminatory.

After Muslims have achieved demographic dominance in France, complaining to police about discrimination when it becomes illegal not to wear a burquini won't do anyone much good.

If Islam triumphs, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue will never be the same.
