Muslim prayers banned in streets of Paris
Catholic World News - September 16, 2011
The French interior ministry has banned public prayers by Muslims in the streets of Paris. As the Muslim population has grown, mosque seating has become insufficient; the government will permit Muslims to rent a large military depot.

Don't try to make the sign of the cross in Pakistan,Iran...etc. You would be shot on the spot.

Dr. Jazz's comment demonstrates that Catholics have the best sense of humor!

As I understand it from the Daily Telegraph of London, *all* prayer is to be banned in the street in France, not just Muslim prayer.

So, this large military depot that the French government will permit Muslims to rent . . . will it still have weapons in it? I suppose if it does, it will make the Muslim takeover of France (and Europe) that much easier.
