Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I learn things, I think about them, I listen to other people.

This site is a major part of this for me. But I've come to realise that I'm in a minority in that respect.

About the comic : Most of the contributors to this thread (none of whom have read it, as far as I know) seemed pretty sure that it will worsen things for Muslims in France. Many appear to think that it is a deliberate attempt to denigrate Muslims. At least one (not naming names) is quite convinced that the authors are racist.

I have expressed my opinion that the intentions of the authors are progressive, and that previous publications by that paper on the same theme have had an overall positive effect.

The only thing I expressed on the content of the book, which I wrote before I had got past the first few pages :

I have to say that Charb is being ironic when he claims that the intent is not to ridicule Mohammed.

I have in fact changed my mind on.
