    (ANSAmed) - PARIS - Heated debate has arisen in France due to the selling in over 1,000 supermarkets of books openly calling for jihad and ''death to heretics'', such as 'Voie du Musulman'. The books were distributed as part of 'Operation Ramadan', an initiative to promote the sale of Islamic publications in France sponsored since 2001 by the Lebanese publisher Mansour Mansour. According to Le Figaro, distributors have ignored petitions and criticism and the authorities have no legal recourse to impose a ban on them. (ANSAmed).
