It's true, tho; if you or me went to the middle East, we would have to wear headscarves and cover up our arms. We'd be compelled to respect their culture. So just what is so wrong about them respecting OURS? Why is it so different; especially since they come here and reap the rewards of our culture, such as welfare, education and (for the UK) a free health service?
Also, there's also the fact that it's bad security wise to allow people to go around with their faces covered. That's why banks won't allow motorcyclists to wear their crash helmets. Not to mention the fact that a terrorist attack was carried out by men wearing burqas purely for the reason of disguising their faces.
