A man walks past campaign posters of the National Front far-right party in Mantes la Ville, north west of Paris, Friday, May 16, 2014. A new mosque for Muslims approved last year and paid with a heavy deposit is suddenly in limbo in a town outside Paris, and new shops in a southern town that reflect Muslims' traditions will be banned. Newly-installed far-right mayors in Mantes-la-Ville, west of the French capital, and in Beaucaire, in southwest France, are rolling out their programs and the large Muslim populations in their towns risk getting crushed. Poster left reads,"May 25 vote for France", poster right, with the pictures of the candidate of National Front far-right party for the European parliament election Aymeric Chauprade and their leader Marine Le Pen which reads"Brussels No, France Yes".

A supporter of Greece's extreme right party Golden Dawn raises his hand in a Nazi-style salute during a rally in Athens on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. About 3,000 people took part in the rally to commemorate a 1996 incident which cost the lives of three navy officers and brought Greece and Turkey to the brink of war. Six lawmakers of the party, including the Golden Dawn's leader Nikolaos Michaloliakos, are in jail on charges of being members of a "criminal organization."
