2020, Is France at war with its Muslims? I DONT BELIEVE IT
A mosque has been ordered shut and a pro-Hamas group disolved.
It follows dozens of raids on muslims and organisations suspected of inciting hatred.
The campaign comes after the stabbing and decapitation of a teacher by a Moscow-born Chechen refugee, who was later shot dead by police.
Samuel Paty had discussed cartoons of Prophet Mohammed in a class on free speech.
President Emamnuel Macron has promised to step up crackdowns on what he calls 'radical Muslims'.
He says he's protecting the French people from 'evil'.
But will this iron-fist policy work?
And how much is politics at play?
