In February, EIFRF with several co-signatories have sent an open letter to French politicians, which you can find here: http://www.eifrf-articles.org/Open-letter-to-French-politicians_a160.html.

We received yesterday an answer from the Director of the French President cabinet.

The French Presidency letter acknowledges our message and says:

"Touched by your approach, the Head of the State entrusted me with the task of thanking you and assuring you that he is more than ever aware of the concerns you express.

Be certain of his determination to fight against amalgams, anti-Muslim words and deeds, which are contrary to the very foundations of our republican pact and should, as such, be denounced and fought.

President François Hollande reminded forcefully that no one should live in France in fear because of his origins or beliefs. Also, the dialogue with religions is for him is a duty. It strengthens social cohesion of our republic."
