France approves tough new anti-terror laws

France’s lower house of parliament has approved a new anti-terrorism law intended to bring an end to a nearly two-year-long state of emergency.

The law will incorporate several measures first authorised under the emergency arrangement.

They include easier searches of homes and confining individuals to their home towns, without judicial approval.

Most people in France approve of the move, but it has been criticised by rights groups.

It can’t be all bad…

    You can have rights, and a boring old dull mono cultural society, but if you want a vibrant diverse multicultural society you have to give up some rights to keep the mass murder down to an acceptable level.

    Enraged Muslims? Is Macaroni growing a spine?

      “enraged” but not enough to leave.

    How do you say “Closing the barn door after the horse has escaped” in French?
    The French PM has also announced France will be implementing a new strategy to combat antisemitism.

    $10 says this will have a greater negative impact on the native French than it will the Muslims…

    Laws mean nothing without the will to enforce them. This goes for our diversity problems and what ever it was that happened in Las Vegas.

    To be used of course only against non Muslims
