Via the BBC: France ‘to expel radical imams’

French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy has vowed to deport any Muslim cleric preaching violence.

Speaking after meeting his Spanish counterpart in Madrid, Mr Sarkozy said he would seek the expulsion of imams in France “whose sermons are radical”.

Mr Sarkozy said France and Spain had agreed tougher joint measures against Islamic militancy.

Two days ago, France reimposed border controls with its EU neighbours following the London bombings.

One guesses that Madrid + London = the need to do something. The trick will be grafting the appropriate rule/law and then actually policing it.

Further, it depends on French legal and constitutional provisions regarding speech.

      Fantastic idea. Now let us do it here, and encourage the rest of Europe to do it also.
