Praying for France

I think it's important even while we think about our own elections tomorrow to spend some time praying for France. There are new concerns that the riots there will spread to other nations in the region, and, more alarmingly, that they are being well directed by others. Technology is also helping the rioters, as mobs are being orchestrated by text-messaging and internet. While economic concerns have been giving rise to disturbances of this type for many years, certainly on a smaller scale, the danger now is that Islamists will take advantage, if they are not doing so already.

To see the mood, watch this video of French President Jacques Chirac. It's in French, and my French isn't so good anymore, but you should at least watch this for the body language. Many people think that President Bush is painful to watch on TV, but this performance will not inspire confidence over there.
