Enlightened French Attitudes

Will soon see their nation made the newest member of the Dar al-Islam (lands of Islam):
I spent Friday morning interviewing two 18-year-old French Muslim girls in the Paris immigrant district of St.-Ouen. (It is about a mile from the school where in March 2003 a French Muslim girl, who had refused the veil and rebuffed the advances of a Muslim boy, was thrown into a garbage can by three Muslim teenagers, who then tossed lighted cigarette butts into the can and closed the lid.)
Both girls I interviewed wore veils and one also wore a full Afghan-like head-to-toe covering; one was of Egyptian parents, the other of Tunisian parents, but both were born and raised in France.

What did I learn from them? That they got all their news from Al Jazeera TV, because they did not believe French TV, that the person they admired most in the world was Osama bin Laden, because he was defending Islam, that suicide "martyrdom" was justified because there was no greater glory than dying in defense of Islam, that they saw themselves as Muslims first and French citizens last, and that all their friends felt pretty much the same.

We were not in Kabul. We were standing outside their French public high school - a short ride from the Eiffel Tower.
When one takes into account the abyssmal fertility rates in western Europe, and combines it with the enviable rates among the Muslim minority groups, as well as the never-ending influx of economic refugees swarming into southern France (either from across the Pyrenees or the Mediterranean), one must conclude that the days of Eurabia really aren't that far off.

And the Europeans will have no-one to blame but themselves.
