French politicians protest over Muslim street prayers in Paris
BBC News ^ | November 10, 2017

About 100 French politicians have marched on a street in a Paris suburb in protest at Muslims holding Friday prayers in public.

The politicians, wearing tricolour sashes of office and singing the national anthem, disrupted about 200 worshippers on a street in Clichy.

Police kept the two groups apart but some scuffles broke out.

Critics say the prayers are an unacceptable use of public space in France's strictly secular system.

The worshippers, however, say they have nowhere else to go since the town hall took over the room they used for prayers back in March.

France has about five million Muslims - the largest Muslim minority in Western Europe.

"Public space cannot be taken over in this way," said Valérie Pécresse, president of the Paris regional council, who led Friday's protest by councillors and MPs mainly of the centre-right Republicans and UDI parties.

Rémi Muzeau, the right-wing mayor of Clichy, called on the interior ministry to ban the street prayers, adding: "I am responsible for guaranteeing the tranquillity and freedom of everyone in my town."

Mo really had a sense of humor. He made it so that when you walk into a mosk, all you see is 100 men raising their a$$es at you.

These people really don't understand the problem. Let enough Muslims into your country and it is "secular" no longer.

France is too crowded. A population reduction of about 5 million would be about right.

This is the country that took down the cross at a public memorial statue of Pope John Paul

Reminds me of the three moles digging a tunnel into a sweet shop.
First says “I smell sweets!”
Second says “I smell tarts!”
Third says “All I smell is Mole-asses”!

I bet they pray outdoors to keep the smell of Mo-asses in the air.

sorry, could not help myself.

Nothing a few speeding tractor/trailers couldn’t fix.

They showed us how it’s done.

They are mooning us. A perfect candidate for a Jerry Miculek demonstration or a Peterbilt incident.

Anyone with access to the OAN channel must watch the program “Killing Europe” at 4PM CST.
