France starts to talk tough on fighting radical Islam
by Ben McPartland
The French government are keen to show they are talking a hard line against radical Islam, but Muslims and experts say it won't solve the problem of terrorism.
The French government are convinced, it seems, that the Muslim community must play a key role in the battle against jihadism and terrorism.
After a spate of recent terror attacks the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls and his Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve have been talking tough.
Under pressure from the right to be seen to be tackling radical Islam, Cazeneuve announced on Monday that French authorities had shut down since December around 20 mosques and prayer halls considered to be preaching radical Islam.
