Controversy over Islam and Nazism: campaign turns nasty

Political tempers flare in France as a clash over civilizations turns into a dogfight in parliament. Also on the show: Nicolas Sarkozy has at least one vote for him, at least in theory. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has made no secret that she wants him re-elected - an unlikely bold move by the normally über-cautious leader.

On the set:

  • Jean-Marc GONIN, Senior Writer, Le Figaro Magazine.
  • Philip TURLE, Journalist, RFI.
