Turkish Cultural Centre
Fait Réligieux reports that on Friday 8 November workers at the new Turkish cultural center under construction in Amboise, in the Indre-et-Loir department in west-central France, found a pig’s head on the site.
This is the third such incident there. Kazim Oflu and Ismail Ozdemir, secretary and president of the Association culturelle turque d’Amboise (Acta), said: “Another pig’s head was left here recently. And on 29 September 2012 we found a boar’s head, under the same circumstances: on our way to noon prayer, on a Friday.”
Previously, although they had filed complaints with the police, Acta had not alerted the press to these incidents, in order to avoid “pouring oil on the fire”, said Kazim Oflu. But they had changed their minds after this latest “provocation”. In addition to the police, Acta has also informed the Turkish embassy in Paris.

Unfortunately, I've never been there, or the restaurant next to it. It's not my side of town (I'm out west). There was a great North African place called Rose des Sables in the westside which had enchanting, tasteful decor and very good food. Unfortunately it closed down. I have a friend who lives in the 18th and knows all the best places, but don't remember the name of the place I went to last time for a scruptious couscous feast.
The lebanese places on the other hand are mostly on the west side, and I can vouch for a couple of places there.
One really cool middle eastern place in Paris is the cafe on top of the IMA (Institut du Monde Arabe) cultural center, at the eastern edge of the quartier latin
