AH, TO BE FRENCH . . .

I actually don't care what the French do anymore, but they do seem to be conflicted.

They have a large and growing Arab, Muslim population and have distinguished themselves in being two-faced when it comes to any middle east issue. Mostly, recent history has been for them to have a detectable bias in favor of this segment of their society, and an opposite bias toward their Jewish citizens.

So I'm baffled as to why they have now banned all religious "headgear" from public schools. I'm sure they say to the Muslims, "hey, the Jews can't wear yarmulkes anymore; sorry, no exceptions". But the Muslims aren't happy. And, like a lot of things these days, that is what is news.
