I am so glad that you noticed that.
Too often do I see Americans disparaging the French especially when it comes to giving in to islam.
Americans had better notice that the French don’t have a muslim president and don’t have muzzies in high national security positions.

Over the past 40 years or so, the official French position has been very accomodating to Islam and the Arab world. This has had two motivations. The first was rooted in De Gaulle's desire to poke a finger in Uncle Sam's eye, and accomodating Islam was part and parcel of the same attitude that kept France out of NATO. The second was rooted in the same antisemitic spitefulness that allowed the French to collaborate so enthusiastically with the Nazis.
Since 9/11, however, the French have been faced with an increasingly assertive and belligerent Muslim minority, which, by virtue of immigration from former French North African colonies, is far larger than what we have to deal with in the US.
It looks like the French may be putting their foot down on a number of issues the progressives hold dear. Good on them.

Quite frankly, the massive anti-gay marriage protests in France have given me a 10X more favorable view of the French people than when they elected Nicholas "I despise Netanyahu" Sarkozy and we were supposed to be elated and forgive their treason because he likes to vacation in the USA.
