This is a cool documentary about a French paper that was sued by numerous mosques and muslim groups for reprinting a group of Danish cartoons of Muhammed.

Below is one of the ones they felt went too far. I thought it was hilarious.

And once again, we have "certain" Muslims threatening to sue because someone took a shot at humorizing their religion.  Why is it that they can't accept that religion runs the risk of someone else humorizing or denigrating it?  They always act like noone's supposed to say anything about it.   

And so far, France was threatened with Jihad over headscarf bans,  Denmark was threatened for it's cartoon satires, and filmmaker Theo Van Gogh was murdered in the streets of Amsterdam for is film exposing the mistreatment of women in extreme Islam.

It's no wonder the religion gets the bad press it gets sometimes..

It was Van Gogh's murder that prompted the Denmark cartoons. The French reprinting of the cartoons made the Muslim groups sue the French paper (they never sued the original Denmark paper). Needless to say the Muslim groups lost.

If you see this film, it's incredible how the French react just like Americans. Yet the French hate America, and Americans hate the French.

We're just a f**ked up world. I love France, especially Paris. It's the most beautiful city in the world. But, I mention it to people here and they pssh pssh.

I have no doubt it's a lovely city. The Eiffel tower in itself is a marvel of construction.

But it seems that the French have a problem with outsiders, but apparently no problem when tourists' money is on the table.   My in-laws were in France during the 1970's (my father-in law is Dutch and my mother-in law is German) and they said the same thing about the French.

Also, now-deceased Toronto Times  editorialist Gordon Sinclair gave a radio broadcast called America, The Good Neighbor in the early 70's, and in it he described the mistreatment of Americans in the streets of Paris in the mid 1950's. Of course, this was  after we saved their economy with billions of dollars in 1956.

Maybe they should have upturned the nose on Lady Liberty before they gave it to us..

Truth is, I've found the French people---outside of Paris---to be extremely friendly.  I think rude snobbishness is definitely a Parisian thing.  It would kind of be like people judging all Americans by New Yorkers. 

I don't think there's any justification for the French headscarf ban, either.  Muslims have a legitimate beef there.  It's not jihad-worthy, of course, but I think the French are being unreasonable and xenophobic there.

Even though I was just bustin' on them, to be serious I have heard the same thing, that outside Paris to be very nice.   Also, the WW2-era French also are very appreciative of Americans and Allied folk.  That's cool.

As to the headscarf ban, who knows what goes on there?

And to score one for common sense, you are indeed right that it's not Jihad-worthy.  Muslims need to grow up and realize that fighting at the drop of a hat isn't doing their cause any good. 

There again, no matter how much "progress" the EU makes in holding Europe together, there will always be closet feelings and unsaid prejudices that will see a united Europe as the goal of many an evil person.
