No freedom please, we're French

Well, so much for the "French" part of yesterday's post.
France Soir originally said it had published the images in full to show "religious dogma" had no place in a secular society.

But late on Wednesday its owner, Raymond Lakah, said he had removed managing editor Jacques Lefranc "as a powerful sign of respect for the intimate beliefs and convictions of every individual".
Ah ha. There is a little tid-bit here. Note the last name of the sacked editor. Yep, that is French. Note the last name of the owner. Yep that is Arabic. Egyptian to be exact. Looks like some are French, some just have a French passport. Where are the barricades?

Hat tip Capt Ed.
