The cancer of radical Islam fuels continuing riots in France

Clear thinking Americans saw the danger of festering, radical Islam in France long before the current terrorist hostile takeover of France. The signs have been there, for those who cared to look. The cancer that has been metastasizing in much of Europe has now reached critical mass in France.

In France, the agenda of radical Islam has been aided, abetted, and enabled by the multiculturalist, socialist cabal that pretends to run the country. French society, through Liberte, Equalite, Fraternite, has effectively ceded power to the underclass. The Muslim population of France, as noted in previous posts, is nearly 10% of the population. The Muslim underclass has been allowed to live in France without assimilating, has been allowed to lead unproductive lives on the dole, and has been allowed to foment hatred for the West without repercussion. The result is what we see in the news today. France is on fire, and this may only be the beginning.

The French leaders are in the process of capitulating to the terrorists. They promise that the depair and hopelessness of the Muslim underclass will be addressed. Well, is not past behavior the best indicator of future behavior? We hold no hope that French leadership will rise to the occasion.

[Rambix has previously written about French hypocrisy, in "The benefits of socialism, French style".]

When French leadership is inconsistent in their application of stated policy, when they kowtow to Muslim fundamentalists, and when they hesitate (as they now have) in the face of great danger, then they have lost their country.

[Britain's Telegraph newspaper must have read Rambix' 11/6/05 post, titled ""Youths" riot in Paris, Chirac fiddles". Their version on 11/7/05 is "Leaders fiddle as France burns".]

Socialism, appeasement, and weak leadership has failed the French citizenry, many of whom are probably decent people. They will suffer dearly for the naivete of French society in these perilous times.
