    You're right, couldn't find a thing about the ban or protest in France. Did find this on Germany though. France is playing the appeasement game, it would be ironic if the eye opening were to occur in Germany at some point in time:

    The Iranian youth movements are getting it done, slowly but surely. France's postition is understandable; if they want to protest for democracy, do it in their own country. The youth movement there are listening and are ready to fight, which is more than what I can say about Iraq. Iraq wasn't ready for anything!

    For once, let's allow the winds of change do its job, instead of immediate military action.

    BS, a peaceful gathering promoting democracy (in a democratic nation) should be perfectly acceptable.

    It figures you would support a ban on a freedom rally. The French ban is pure appeasement to the Mullahs.

    See hylandr there's this little thing about anyone speaking their mind Iran getting THROWN IN PRISON. Jesus you are obtuse.

    Every era in human history has had people like you. The fighting we-can't-do spirit. You are akin to the Torys in Revolutionary America and the pre-WWII isolationists. Why don't you realize for once that saying "freedom is for us, not you" is the biggest insult one country can give to another?
