Ok liberal Dems, I'm waiting for you to start calling Sarcozy a Nazi and a racist:

President Nicolas Sarkozy said his government was forwarding the legislation to parliament because it had a "moral responsibility" to uphold traditional European values in the face of an increasingly visible Muslim population, estimated at more than 5 million, the largest in Western Europe.
