Meanwhile, in France

Meanwhile, in France, the protests continue "under strict supervision."  A farce after they claimed to ban any protests.  I guess in that regard, they waived a white flag.

As for the riot- er, protesters?
The marchers, many of whom held Palestinian flags or stickers saying "Boycott Israel", shouted slogans such as "Israel killer" and "Long live Palestine, long live the resistance!"
As the Paris marchers dispersed after the protest, a few threw bottles at the police, who did not respond.

 Great. Once again, kudos to these peaceful chaps.

How did the police do? Compared to, say, their Canadian counterparts, as reported by the Star.

Shortly after the march, 16 people were arrested in the Jewish quarter of Paris's historic Marais district after attempting to break into a restaurant while yelling "anti-Semitic insults," a police source said.

A witness at the scene said that before police arrived, members of radical Jewish groups had intervened as the group tried to force their way into the closed restaurant while yelling "Death to the Jews!" and "Israel murderer."

 What is this, 1933 again?

At least the French are enforcing the laws.  Let's see if these guys get serious charges or just a slap on the wrist.

So, good and bad to be seen here.  We will have to wait and see.
