BBC News – France boosts security at Jewish sites
This is very interesting for several reasons. One thing you really have to understand about France is just how secular it is. America has nothing on France’s insistence on secular government. This is really an interesting conflict. Obviously not good, but for the French governmental philosophy, it’s very interesting to face a very religious problem. I’m not sure the French government has always been able to do that very well (there were major immigrant riots here a few years ago and at least part of the riots were religiously based if I have my facts right).
Of course. I could just be interested in this ’cause I’m living here. And for no other reason haha.
