Aux Barricades, Mes Amis? Ou Non?

I guess we'll soon get to see whether France is going to the barricades or is going to submit, legally speaking:

French papers in cartoon lawsuit

France's top Muslim organisation has decided to take legal action against French newspapers that printed cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad.

The French Council of Muslim Faith (CFCM) said it was acting after receiving lawyers' advice.

CFCM lawyer Maitre Hafiz said details of the case were still being worked out, without specifying charges...

The CFCM decided to launch legal action against the newspapers that published the caricatures, the council said in a statement after a closed-door meeting between its member groups and lawyers.
