1. i've seen pictures of muslims praying in the street
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (09.12.13)
and so blocking all the trafic . I think it was in Paris .
2. In Europe streets closed by muslims praying on the streets
Anna M Sedda ,   Rome-Italy   (09.12.13)
Muslims have nothing to say about the closure of a street in France; In Paris,Milan,Rome and all major and minor cities in Europe the muslims " occupy our streets" every friday and nobody can walk free until they mouve their bloddy bollock from the roads...
3. Security, not double standards
Sane   (09.12.13)
Although I can see how that would hamper some of the more extremist Muslims from fulfilling their religious duty to kill Jees.
4. #1,2 I have seen this in New York city too.
Google the million muslim march yesterday in Washington!
5. Look up the million muslim march yesterday in Washington!

6. Security issues
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (09.12.13)
Closing any street to vehicular traffic is normally a security issue, not a religious issue, and has nothing to do with separation of church and state. The issue of synagogue security is caused by Muslim attacks on Jews, so it's a bit strange for the Muslims to complain.
7. Some muslims are racist and intolerant
Zyx ,   USA   (09.12.13)

Dear Muslims: you have no recourse for complaint. Do Jews use their tiny babies as incendiary devices? Do Jew threaten to annihilate the West? Did Jews bomb the Boston Marathon? Did Jews obliterate the lives of 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001? Fermez tes bouches.
9. the entire country gets closed on Yom Kippur ...
Michael ,   California, USA   (09.12.13)
and many people are bitching in Israel. But I like the clean air over the cities in the morning of Yom Kippur. And I like to ride my bicycle on the freeway. That's the reason I am not bitching this time. Hey you there in Metz, take a bicycle and ride on the closed off street. You'll feel happy like I do.
10. #7 some muslims are racist and intolerant?
arthurf ,   amsterdam   (09.14.13)
Why don't you replace "some" by "the majority of"... I may be unaware but can you maybe tell me any other religion that is more intolerant?
11. To #9.
Steven ,   Rockville MD USA   (09.14.13)
If you bitch nobody cares at all. As for your "advise" to take bike-ride on the closed street due to Jewish New Year/Yom Kipur, it shows what a nobody you are.
12. Righteous nations
God'sway   (09.13.13)
France might be joining righteous nations such as Russia, America, UK, South Africa, and Ghana etc. to prevent turning into Moslem rubbish straw that can’t stand test of refining fire.
13. Michael #9
Lou ,   Rishon   (09.14.13)
Nobody in Israel "bitches" on Yom Kippur when everything closes down. Don't be such an Israeli hater. Are you Jewish?
14. The jewish settlement in Metz
Raphael ,   Netanya   (09.15.13)
Dates back to the 9th century, and Jews were present in Lorraine as early as the 2nd century. They suffered pogroms by the crusaders in 1096, in 1322 because of a well poisoning libel, and lately in 1670 further to the last blood libel in France before BDS.
