Muslims in France 

Le Monde has the transcript of a chat co-sponsored by Le Monde and France 5's political talk show "Ripostes," with Hamida bin Sadia. She is the French-Algerian spokeswoman of the group "Une ├ęcole pour tous-tes." The discussion ranges from the proposed ban on Muslim headscarves in schools, to the integration of immigrants into French society, to racism and Islamophobia. Her comments, while measured, clearly point to her dissatisfaction with the progress of integration and secularism as it is applied in France.

The transcript is in French, but I will hopefully get around to translating some of it later. If you read French, it's worth a look.
