Huh. Is Le Pen going soft? http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/08/world/europe/08france.html?_r=1&oref=slogin Mr. Le Pen, who is running in his fifth presidential race, this time has tried to shed his image as an anti-immigrant, anti-Europe racist in an effort to lure right-wing voters from the Sarkozy camp. To that end, he is portraying himself as a conciliatory figure and the true protector of all French citizens, regardless of their race or ethnic origin. So, the black and Arab 'youths' burning Paris to the ground just need a good dose of French values, eh?
