France's Muslim community seeks protection from 'anti-Islam crusades'

France's Muslim community has called on President François Hollande to make "a solemn statement" to stem what it sees as anti-Islam crusades. Libération leads on that and also has an interview with Abdelghani Merah, brother of Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah, who condemns Salafist hatred. We also look at a proposed new "exit tax" on companies that re-locate abroad. That's the focus for this look at the French press on Friday 9th November, 2012.

Libération reports France’s Muslim community feels there are anti-Islam crusades underway against them, and want protection.

Its editorial says Muslims feel exasperated. It advises President François Hollande to make the “solemn statement” on the issue Muslims are asking for.

There is also an interview with a brother of Toulouse gunman Mohammed Merah. Abdelghani Merah expresses support for his brother’s victims and condemns Salafist hatred.

The business daily Les Echos reports on the French tax system’s planned "weapon" to deter French companies from moving operations abroad: an exit tax. It says that the re-location tax will be in line with EU requirements.

Le Parisien-Aujourd’hui en France headlines: "They want to work on Sundays", reporting on a demonstration by employees at a Paris shop.

And the free paper 20 Minutes says it has spotted a new trend: American-style food trucks appearing on Paris streets.
