Is Paris Burning?

I'm thinkin' we're gonna see more than a few Korans go up in smoke very shortly...

The vast majority behind the measure say it will preserve the nation's singular values, including its secular foundation and a notion of fraternity that is contrary to those who hide their faces.

UPDATE: In three, two, one...
-- PARIS -- Paris' Eiffel Tower and its immediate surroundings were evacuated Tuesday evening after an anonymous caller phoned in a bomb threat.

French media also said parts of a second tourist hub — the Saint-Michel subway station near Notre Dame Cathedral — were briefly evacuated following a similar threat.

The station was the target of a terrorist attack in 1995 that killed eight and injured scores of people.

Discrimination against Muslim women? What about honour killings???
