It just goes to prove, some people don't use their brains...

If an explosive device went off at airport security, what would happen to the passengers and airport personnel around that security booth?

Especially with the tongue-in-cheek punch line about the vacated seat, it was so obviously not meant to be taken seriously. I'm surprised (and dismayed, at people's sheer stupidity) that enough people believed it that Snopes saw fit to discuss it.

Yeah, the sign was real, as are the signs here in France advertising sales for Ramadan or halal meat in Christian stores. Those shopkeepers want the Muslim trade. Money talks...

We should do this with the muslims ...

Napoleon Bonaparte’s “Grand Sanhedrin”

The “Grand Sanhedrin” was a Jewish high court convened by Napoleon I to give legal sanction to the principles expressed by the Assembly of Notables in answer to the twelve questions submitted to it by the government (see Jew. Encyc. v. 468, s.v. France).

On October 6, 1806, the Assembly of Notables issued a proclamation to all the Jewish communities of Europe, inviting them to send delegates to the Sanhedrin, to convene on October 20. This proclamation, written in Hebrew, French, German, and Italian, speaks in extravagant terms of the importance of this revived institution and of the greatness of its imperial protector. While the action of Napoleon aroused in many Jews of Germany the hope that, influenced by it, their governments also would grant them the rights of citizenship, others looked upon it as a political contrivance. When in the war against Prussia (1806–07) the emperor invaded Poland and the Jews rendered great services to his army, he remarked, laughing, “The sanhedrin is at least useful to me.” David Friedländer and his friends in Berlin described it as a spectacle that Napoleon offered to the Parisians.

Modern attempts in Israel
Since the dissolution of the Sanhedrin in 358 AD,[18] there has been no universally recognized authority within Jewish law. Maimonides (1135–1204) was one of the greatest scholars of the Middle Ages, and is arguably one of the most widely accepted scholars among the Jewish people since the closing of the Talmud in 500. Influenced by the rationalist school of thought and generally showing a preference for a natural (as opposed to miraculous) redemption for the Jewish people, Maimonides proposed a rationalist solution for achieving the goal of re-establishing the highest court in Jewish tradition and reinvesting it with the same authority it had in former years. There have been several attempts to implement Maimonides‘ recommendations, the latest being in modern times.

There have been rabbinical attempts to renew Semicha and re-establish a Sanhedrin by Rabbi Jacob Berab in 1538, Rabbi Yisroel Shklover in 1830, Rabbi Aharon Mendel haCohen in 1901, Rabbi Zvi Kovsker in 1940 and Rabbi Yehuda Leib Maimon in 1949.

In October 2004 (Tishrei 5765), a group of rabbis representing varied Orthodox communities in Israel undertook a ceremony in Tiberias,[19] where the original Sanhedrin was disbanded, in which it claimed to re-establish the body according to the proposal of Maimonides and the Jewish legal rulings of Rabbi Yosef Karo. The controversial attempt has been subject to debate within different Jewish communities.

Napoleon took but little interest in the Jews when he came to power. It was only in 1806 that, when faced with mounting hostility to the Jews in France and the problem of growing landowner debt in Alsace, Napoleon took his first decisions. And so he reformed the rules regarding credit, and business reserved for Jews since Christians were traditionally forbidden to practice usury.

In parallel with this, Napoleon passed the decree of 30 May, 1806. This enshrined the creation of an assembly of Jewish notables who would represent the Jewish community and be a consultative body with the aim of bringing Jews over to his policies.

«According to a report which I have received, certain Jews in several northern départements, whose only profession is that of money-lender, have, by the accumulation of the most immoderate interest, put many farmers in these lands in the greatest financial straits. […] On 15 July, in our fair town of Paris, an assembly of individuals professing the Jewish religion and living in France shall be formed.» «The members of this assembly shall number [111], taken from the stated départements and selected by the Prefects from amongst Rabbis, householders and other Jews distinguished by their probity and enlightenment.»
(Correspondance of Napoleon I, n°10291)

The Council met five times between July and September, 1806. As a result of these meetings, Napoleon decided to summon a Great Sanhedrin, as a modern version of the council which in ancient times met in Jerusalem. The Grand Sanhedrin met several times from 10 February to 9 March, 1807.

«Monsieur David Sintzhem, the rabbi for Strasbourg, was appointed by H. E. the Minister for the Interior as the head of this assembly. […] The assembly was constituted after the reading of the minutes for the verification of authorities […]. Monsieur Furtado, president of the first assembly, gave a very lengthy report on the first three points specific to the Sanhedrin, namely, concerning polygamy, repudiation, and marriage.»
(Journal de l'Empire of 13 February, 1807)

On 9 December, 1807, a decree was passed which laid the rules for Jews worship in the Empire.

A decree of 17 March 1808, designed to bring «social reform to Jews», annulled all debts owed to Jews. Non-French Jews were only allowed into France is they agreed to buy a country property and not to engage in commerce.

On 20 July, 1808, a decree was passed (renewing demands made in 1792) ordering Jews to take a surname. Most Jews adopted their first names or nicknames as their surname.

The decree of 1806 was an attempt to bring Jews out of their isolation, and the Great Sanhedrin of 1807, whereby Judaism became an official religion, tied Jews closely to the regime. Indeed, the resolution adopted by the Sanhedrin of 1807 formed a sort of concordat which remains, still today, the legislative base for Fernch Judaism. In many ways, this was the continuation of the Concordat of 1801 and the Code civil of 1804.

Germany might try to ban face veils, and that is *so* not okay
Rebecca Vineyard

Officials in Germany’s ruling coalition have proposed a partial ban on face veils, according to CNN. The ban would apply to public places where identification is required. In Germany, this includes schools and kindergartens, as well as government and registry offices.

European bans on the Muslim face veil, or niqab, aren’t new. In fact, a 2014 BBC roundup of European attitudes toward this form of Muslim dress, as well as burkas and hijabs, is a reminder that France and Belgium have banned the full-face veil since 2011, while some restrictions on the garb and/or local bans exist in a number of other countries.
Those in favor of the ban say that full-face veils don’t fit in with German society, and that the ban would promote security and national cohesion.

At a press conference held by the Christian Democratic Union and the Christian Social Union — which govern in a partnership — Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said, “Full-face veils, as mentioned, we reject this. Not just the burka, any full-face veils that only shows eyes of a person.”

Interior Minister of Berlin Frank Henkel showed support for the proposal, adding that the full-face veil “does not fit in with our understanding of a tolerant, free society. It does not fit in with our view of women.”

While Henkel’s words echo the many people who view the niqab as oppressive, it also seems as though the opinions of women who actually wear the niqab (or other “restrictive” religious clothing, for that matter) aren’t being considered. Those who do wear it and share their own opinion, like Sahar Al Faifi in her piece for Independent, consistently say that wearing such clothing is a matter of personal choice, and it doesn’t interfere with their ability to be powerful and vocal members of a wider community.

“It does not fit into our society for us, for our communication, for our cohesion in the society…. This is why we demand you show your face,” continued de Maiziere during the proposal’s introduction.

Despite the insistence that the intentions behind the proposal are good, there is a clear dissonance between promoting a “tolerant, free society,” as Henkel says, and de Maiziere’s demands that women show their faces. Hopefully, the ban doesn’t end up in place — but as Faifi suggests in her piece:

“Muslim women too must raise their heads, speak on behalf of themselves and platforms should be given to them.”

Germany’s Conservatives Push for Partial Burqa Ban
[Time] Kate Samuelson

Conservatives allied with Chancellor Angela Merkel are seeking a ban on Muslim women wearing full-face veils or burqas in schools and universities and while driving in Germany, Reuters reports.

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told ZDF television, “we unanimously reject the burqa, it does not fit with our liberal-minded society”. His comments come after a total ban on the full-face veil was rejected on Aug. 11.

Ministers belonging to Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) and her Christian Social Union (CSU) allies will later present a declaration on tougher security measures, including more police and greater surveillance in public areas, following the rise in terrorist activity in Europe. The proposals, which have been watered down after the chancellor intervened, must be adopted by the government before they can become law.

The partial ban on the burqa and niqab garments is the most controversial of the proposals, with the conservative allies saying they show a lack of integration, suggest women are inferior and could pose security risks. De Maiziere added that the CDU and CSU “want to make it a legal requirement to show your face in places where it is necessary”.

These proposals come days after a series of towns in France banned the wearing of burkinis on beaches. Supporters of the bans says it aligns with France’s princples of secularism, while critics have called them sexist and Islamophobic.

An imam, his wife and son have been arrested after the imam's son broadcast a video calling for killing Christians. The imam himself called for violence in his preaching and was under an expulsion decree, which he appealed, so they stayed in Belgium.

Verviers is the small town I live in. I'm now on a trip to Geneva - this does not make me want to hurry home!

I'd been working as a volunteer in a centre for refugees, helping them to settle and adapt. It is discouraging to see how some of the people we took in and helped preach hate and call their "parishioners" (I don't know the word for the Muslim equivalent) to kill us.
