Muslim man asks for hugs in Paris

If you haven’t seen this video in your Facebook feed, you will.

“In the Now,” the Russia Today weekly program, says it doesn’t know who the man was who stood in the middle of Paris with a sign that asked, “Do you trust me?”

In June, the Pew Research Center found that 76 percent of French citizens said they held favorable opinions about the country’s Muslims, the Christian Science Monitor reports.

That’s a significant departure from a similar Pew survey about American attitudes toward other religions.
