Aux Champs Elysées...

... then:

... and now: 

At least four  French laws were broken there, on the Champs Elysées in front of the American Embassy with impunity and in front of the police:

1. At the moment, any religious protest marches are forbidden in France.

2. Several  women defied the law forbidding the full face veil.

3. Muslims Prayers in the Street have been illegal for over a year. Consequently here, on the Champs-Elysees, facing an immobilised police force this was yet  another law-breaking provocation.

4. Threatening the “Jews” with genocide, although quite fashionable these days among islamists, is not exactly legal in France. And the slogan “Khaybar! Khaybar! Ya Yahoud” literally translated means: “(remember) Khaybar! (remember) Khaybar! Oh Jews!”. Khaybar was the place where the Jews were massacred, and their women and children enslaved..

Incidentally, the Champs Elysees have become rather tacky over  the last few years.
