Paris Leads the Way in Saying NO to Muslims, but nicely. Is the tide turning to reasonableness?

This is an interesting story about saying 'no' to a religious group.  The Americans and Canadians say it to Christians all the time, but seldom are they able to say 'no' to those of the Islamic faith.  There must be a reason for that, but that's another story.

Anyway, the city of Paris has banned "prayers on the street" and the new law was clearly aimed at Muslims.  Two mosques are involved and the city has offered to rent them some additional space.  Everyone seems to be cooperating.

I believe most would cooperate once they realize that a 'no' is a 'no' and that we need to help find alternatives.   This is also a good story.  Take a look.
