France honors Muslim war dead

A sign of the times from our friends at Ummah News Links. French President Chirac:

marked 90 years since the Battle of Verdun by unveiling a monument to Muslims who fell in the key WWI battle.
 
The memorial is the first to Muslims who died in 300 days of clashes over the strategically located French town and in other World War I battles.

Mr Chirac hailed the French army in Verdun as "France in its diversity".
