On Saturday I made a rare trek to see a first-run movie, because of my curiosity about Hollywood’s treatment of an instance of defending western civilization. The new movie Monuments Men modifies the true story of the World War II officers who rescued works of art from Hitler’s theft. A project of George Clooney, the [...]
One step forward, two steps back. Maybe. France is thinking that the project of requiring Muslim immigrants to integrate into French society is just too hard and perhaps the authorities can just redefine the problem away. However, the surrender to insistent Muslim demands to remake France into a sharia-compliant country would be a fundamental change [...]
Over in France, Muslim immigrants have been a disastrous addition to society, and have caused disturbances from weeks-long periods of “civil unrest” to burqa riots. But perpetually cranky Islamists are not the only diversity problem facing the French, who were recently polled as disapproving of the gypsies, er Roma who reside there.
Majority of French believe [...]
Maintaining law and order in increasingly diverse France is requiring more extreme measures, now including an early curfew in some immigrant neighborhoods “where law does not exist.”
Many in the West still don’t understand that the criminal violence of Muslim immigrants is not the sociological maladjustment of unhappy newbies, but is a central strategy in the [...]
To hear the New York Times tell it, mass Muslim immigration does not have to be a problem. It has found a French town (that many Americans have never heard of) Roubaix where the multicultural experiment appears to be going great. As long as French residents there violate the nation’s principle of state secularism (laïcité) [...]
In March 2012, the National Geographic magazine published a glowing story titled “Marseille Melting Pot” about the French port city which asked, “As more European countries become nations of immigrants, is the multicultural city of Marseille a vision of the future?” with pretty pictures of diversity like the one below.
But just a few months later the [...]
In 2010, France enacted a ban on the wearing of burqas in public places, which seemed at the time to be a fine statement of western openness and associated freedom against misogynous Islam. However, the actual enforcement of the law was not always robust, since the resulting violence, as happened last summer in Marseille, made [...]
The excellent blog IslamVersusEurope translates articles from the non-English press about the spread of hostile Islam across the continent. A recent post noted the demonstration — in Paris — supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt’s recently deposed Mohammed Morsi.
Shocking stuff to be happening in the capital of France, is it not? We are fortunate that [...]
In Sweden, five days (so far) of Muslim rioting has caused some in the socialist country to wonder about the wisdom of welcoming so many unfriendly immigrants from violent societies.
Political correctness causes harm to the thought process, but there is some progress here. For years, we have read about unspecified “youths” burning down the town. [...]
It’s interesting to see another video reporting on the rapid Islamicization of France. (See the recent Hungarian piece and a December item from Russia’s RT network.)
Russia has serious problems with its unfriendly Muslims and its media may be checking out France to see how things might develop. As an example of concern, a couple weeks [...]
France used to be a nice country. Then the leaders admitted large numbers of Muslim immigrants and now the society is crumbling from crime and dysfunction.
Hungarian journalists visited the “City of Light,” as Paris was once called, and reported on the deteriorating state of society.
Muslim immigration has been an unmitigated disaster. In Marseilles (touted as [...]
Free speech is increasingly under attack in the West, due to Muslim immigration, but there has been little media attention given to alarms like the attempted assassination of Danish journalist Lars Hedegaard (pictured) in Copenhagen earlier this month.
A Muslim came to his front door pretending to deliver a package, but instead drew a gun and [...]
