Hugh drew our attention, earlier, to the singing of the La Marseillaise in the Assemblee Nationale. That is the France we all know, modern France, the France of revolution and laicite.

Nonetheless, others in the ruling party, and in the UMP too, have not mentioned a war being waged even by "radical Islam." And even better was ...Read More...

From the speech of Manuel Valls at the Assemblee Natinale, January 13, 2015:   Le premier sujet qu'il faut aborder clairement, c'est la lutte contre l'antisémitisme. L'histoire nous l'a montré, le réveil de l'antisémitisme, c'est le symptôme d'une crise de la démocratie, d'une crise de la République. ...Read More...

Here. The French do not sing La Marseillaise. But they were singing. They do not wave the French flag -- it's deemed too "nationalistic." But there were flags being waved at the March, at other marches too. They do not treat the police with respect, but the theme of gratitude toward the police was ...Read More...
