Christmas together

The Yellow Jackets make a racket? :lol: They are already discussing "Act 5", presumably for next Saturday. This is going to be long ... This at one of their blocking points somewhere in the country: " My apologies to riot police and law enforcement We're going to spend Christmas together " :lol: ht...

Sertorio, I seem to remember you stated before that you were an Atheist, and even if you were a believer, I would have trouble imagine you being brought to the warlike version of Islam.

What gives :shock: :? ???

Alexis, what has Macron done to invite such widespread public unpopularity?
Neverfail, I can't leave you without this analysis, much more informed than what a mere Frenchman like me can manage.

Why Macron is disliked, sometimes even hated

A bit of context first - Macron is the 3rd president here whose popularity took a s...

A quiet sleepy provincial town welcomes Macron

What the French protesters really want: Funny, but this Trump impersonation - which happened only once because of some joker, no other example has been reported - was at the same time chanted and, more strongly, booed.

From the 1980s onwards, it was clear there was a price to be paid for weste...

Almohads were the ISIS of their time

I tend to think of Berbers as our cousins (at least as far as the Iberian Peninsula is concerned). I would gladly accept them in "my" Europe... All human beings are cousins to some degree :D Regarding the Almohads, I'm not sure they are a very good example of international and pan-human brotherhood...
