Chirac and De Villepin miscalculated. They believed that if they stridently opposed America at the UN, that if they enacted generous social welfare program, that if they spoke up against Israel and on behalf of Palestinians (it is afterall, where Arafat died), they would -- shall we say it -- appease their immigrant population.
Hmmm. They were dreadfully wrong. These folks have clearly not been appeased. In fact, when the French insisted on the headscarf ban (consistent with their national secularism), they set the stage for a social collision which may escape their ability to manage in post WWII European tradition. the have enacted a State of Emergency which rolls the clock back to 1955. But it may soon be the case that they need to go back in time. Way back. According to Mark Steyn, all the way back to 732 AD, when Charles Martel beat back the invading Muslims 200 miles from Paris.
This is the most significant development at the moment in the War on Terror. England was well engaged prior to July 7th. Spain was as well. Now they've rolled over. But France was sitting it out. Now it's broken loose there. Can Germany be far behind?
Will the media ever come to understand that there is a war on -- and it is a war against them and their values?
There is growing evidence (i.e. confessons) that the French media has been censoring its coverage for fear of causing more violence...
To quote a Guardian story...
"One of France's leading TV news executives has admitted censoring his coverage of the riots in the country for fear of encouraging support for far-right politicians."
But somehow those thoughts never entered the breathless French coverage of every other type of violence....say storms in the US or Iraq or whatever might hurt the evil Bush....
Read sites such as No Pasaran and even at CQ and Gateway Pundit - you will find that "blowback" is taking place.
If the media in the EU and the LSM here aren't impressed with the "car-b-que" then how about the furniture warehouse, the businesses and the subway
that were fired last night.
Will that get your attention? No. Well we have lots more up our sleves.
We can't scare your country into submission if the people don't know our real power. We need the PR and we sure didn't appreciate the guys stealing our thunder in Jordan.
By censoring and apologizing
they are challenging them to
get do something that cannot be ignored.
By arresting 8 police for "roughing up" a youth who had been arrest the previous night for throwing rocks. The night after release he was throwing bottles. They prove they
are powerless. They continue to "feed the alligator hoping to eaten
Britt Hume played a skit from the Daily Show last night. The correspondent in
fake Paris said the French would surrender. Jon Stewart said "How can they surrender? Aren't the rioters French too? The
"My money's on the French!"
Wish it were funny. It is just sad and amazing that the Lefties in this country want us to follow those marvelous "French Family Values"
