This is my major irk. They claim to be very inclusive, as long as you're not: Jewish, Muslim, American, German, etc... It comes across as: "We like all these ideals of multiculturalism, as long as they're elsewhere. France is for the French."

This isn't exclusive to France of course, but there you go.
