Those Cosmopolitan and Tolerant French

From Dec. 2, 2015 New York Times:
PARIS — The French government has shut down three mosques and four informal Muslim prayer rooms out of concern that they were contributing to Islamic radicalization, the French interior minister announced Wednesday.

The minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, told the National Assembly that the action was necessary after the deadly terror attacks in and around Paris on Nov. 13, which left 130 people dead and hundreds wounded.

Mr. Cazeneuve said it was the first time that the French government had taken such a step.
