France is finally awakening from its decade long dream that tolerance of Islam can bring about harmony. Its efforts at stopping the burqa in France indicate France's resolve to prevent a Muslim takeover of its society, similar to what's happening in Britain. Kouchner's statement about Hezbollah shows that France finally realizes that Israel is faced with the same Islamic fundamentalist threat that France is trying to contain at home. "Israel is our friend, and if there was a threat to Lebanon, it will only come from a military adventure carried out by Hezbollah in the best interest of Iran," Kouchner reportedly told the Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri during a visit to Paris.
