23. Thanks so much for the information.

This is something I have been generally uneducated on.

The nun's garb is a great example. That's just fine, but add a veil over the face and all hell breaks loose.

One of the theories about the Charlie Hebdo incident was that extremists had the intent of further marginalizing muslims in a country in which they did not feel particularly welcome to begin with. This would result in an increase pool to recruit from. The Front National appears to have been more than willing to play right along.

While I don't think the Hebdo cartoonists were intentionally racist, I think they were used by racists to further their own cause.
