France has moved to ban any further anti-US demonstrations sparked by the film that has caused deadly protests across the Muslim world and beyond.

As many as 150 people have been arrested in Paris after clashes broke out close to the US embassy, three police officers were hurt.

France is home to the largest Islamic community in Europe.

Manuel Valls is the French Interior Minister:

“I will not allow that fully veiled women, street prayers or hostile slogans against our allies to be heard on our streets, so I will be very firm. Also, these few people shouldn’t be confused with the vast majority of our fellow citizens they are caricaturing Islam as it is practised in our country.”

This might seem like a good thing, but it's really not. It's yet another outrageous restriction on European freedom. The motto of this site is: Where Islam spreads, freedom dies. That may suggest that the death of freedom is caused by the demands made by Muslims, like the recent calls to ban the Innocence of Muslims film and prosecute those involved in making it. But that's only one of the ways Islam kills freedom. The other is by causing its adherents to act in such outrageous ways that governments feel obliged to introduce authoritarian measures. Of course these will then be applied to everyone so as to be non-discriminatory.

As I've mentioned before, most people in the West misunderstand the link between lack of democracy and barbarism. When they look at the roiling savages of the third world, living under undemocratic regimes, they assume that the lack of freedom produces savage behaviour. But the truth is, it's the other way around. Savages require authoritarian government and, through their barbarous actions, make it almost inevitable.
