France Acts On Islamic Immigration

France is taking the lead in toughening immigration laws! After the Islamic uprising through out France, in November, the French government seeks to limit immigrants who refuse to assimilate. In the past, France welcomed immigration from its former French colonies such as Algeria and French-Indochina. One of these groups despises French culture, demands separate rule, and shows it contempt by engaging in violence and rioting. Guess which one?

Bat Ye’or and now Tony Blankley have warned of the growing problem with Islamic supremacists in Europe. Given the demographics, the threat of Islam is greatest in Europe. The Islamic attack on 9/11 brought the jihadist threat to everyone’s attention but left some believing that it was America’s problem. The Left tried to capitalize on this ignorance and blame America for “blowback.” Most didn’t know that Islamists had previously tried to fly planes into the Eiffel Tower (which still remains a target) but unable get the pilots to co-operate, they realized they had to learn to fly the planes themselves. In the meantime, France toughened its anti-terror laws (unlike the Clinton administration after the ’93 WTC attack) and jihadists found a softer target elsewhere.

Recently, President Bush has addressed the issue of illegal immigration and border control. While it is a welcomed step forward, we need much more. Many of us might remember that the State Department allowed Saudi entry into our country under the Visa Express program and continued that program 10 months after 9/11. Even today, students from Saudi Arabia are allowed – indeed, welcomed – to study at American universities.

We have a long way to go before our government can identify and talk about the problem. Fortunately, we will not be alone. France has long been on the frontline of the clash with Islamic barbarians. While we may be distracted by its virulent Anti-Americanism, it will slowly wake-up and fight the real threat in the world today: Islam. Europe, having the greatest challenge, will take the toughest measures and face the critics – long before some of our fellow citizen’s wake-up. While we may have valid reservations about Europe, they need to fight our common enemy. Let’s cheer them on and let’s exploit their forceful response as an argument for similar action here at home.

and remember when the USA was just starting the 9/11 cleanup, on the 21/9/01 Jihadis drove a bomb laden truck into a fertiliser plant in toulouse, injuring 2000 and killing more than two dozen people.

the issue with france is that it has accumulated such an enourmously hostile islamic 5th column, what choices do they have left that won't lead to civil war. I still think they prefer the head in the sand option.

Two to one odds: civil war. But you have a ring-side seat. I could be wrong.

Oriana Fallaci has been almost alone in [e]urope trying to convince people that Islam is the greatest enemy of our civilization.

She is old now and sick with cancer, her six decades of fighting Islam are almost over.

If her pleas and warnings had not gone unheeded, things would be much different in [e]urope now.

Fallaci: Warrior in the Cause of Human Freedom
Then Fallaci threw down the gauntlet to the multicultural, politically correct, and fearful. “There is not,” she asserted, “good Islam or bad Islam. There is just Islam. And Islam is the Qur’an. And the Qur’an is the Mein Kampf of this movement. The Qur’an demands the annihilation or subjugation of the other, and wants to substitute totalitarianism for democracy. Read it over, that Mein Kampf. In whatever version, you will find that all the evil that the sons of Allah commit against themselves and against others is in it.”

I read for the first time her response to 9/11 about two years ago. She titled it "The Rage and the Pride". Her Rage is very evident, her hate for Islam literally drips from the words. Her sorrow for her country Italy evident and her self indulgence pride runs through out the essay. I keep promising to read her books, I think I should hurry before she dies.
