Long live Laicite: Chirac has come out in favor of the Stasi report. A law will be drafted to ban all conspicuous religious manifestations from public schools and buildings in France. He also came out against the idea of a Jewish and a Muslim holiday for France. I am with Chirac on this. I am no fan of his (he was really close to Saddam especially in the 1970s, and Saddam was once his guest in Paris), but on the defense of secularism, I am with him.
