Radicalism Prompts Warnings in France
New York Times ^ | Oct. 8, 2012 | By MAĻA de la BAUME

PARIS — Jewish and Muslim leaders here warned on Monday of rising anti-Semitism among young Muslims, two days after the police arrested 11 men and fatally shot one in raids in a handful of cities aimed at young radical French Muslims.

President François Hollande met with Jewish and Muslim leaders on Sunday and promised tighter security at Jewish religious sites. He said that a new law would soon make it a crime to travel to militant training camps. “Nothing will be tolerated; nothing should happen,” Mr. Hollande said in a statement. “Any act, any remark will be prosecuted with the greatest firmness.”

News of the raids added to the anxieties of France’s Jewish and Muslim populations, which were already unnerved by the killings in March of three French service members, a rabbi and three Jewish children in the Toulouse region by a French Muslim who had trained with Islamic militants in Pakistan. Muslim and Jewish spokesmen say they worry about the domestic expansion of radical Islam.

“We must take the measure of this type of ideology,” Richard Prasquier, the head of Crif, a major Jewish organization in France, told France Inter radio on Monday. “I say that radical Islamism is Nazi ideology.”

Maybe it is time to give the muzzies a one-way ticket to the Middle East or Africa.

That may happen but probably after a shooting cultural war across Europe. This crisis could bring about fascism.

There has been a network of jihadists uncovered in Cannes! Yes Cannes, home of the famous film festival. They’re like cockroaches- where there’s one, there’s more.
“Douce France” exists only in our memories and fantasies.

Hollande’s approval ratings continue to drop. He is viewed as weak an ineffectual. And yet, 80+ % of the French would vote for 0, and are frantic over the shift to Romney in the polls.

Cannes? I’m shaking my head. I feel very sorry for the French people. They must be freaking out.

The thing you have to remember about France is that the country has a national religion that they guard with pathological zeal. Their religion is radical secularism, which is why they think of themselves as the most tolerant people on the planet yet have no problem outlawing head scarves and burkhas in schools. Even traditionalist Catholic churches operate illegally over there.

This is why they can't stand people like Romney but absolutely love someone like Barack Obama who can pass himself off as absolutely anything on any given day of the week.

At least the French call them “Muslims”, unlike the cowardly English who refer to them as “Asians” when reporting gang rapes and arson by Muslims.

The French have always believed they have a special touch with the Arabs.

That poll where 80+ percent of French citizens are pro-Obama is interesting.

When I lived in Spain thirty years ago, Reagan was not popular in Europe, either. But more than one Spaniard would tell me surreptishisly that they had huge admiration for Ronald Reagan “because he is a ‘real man’ - he has cojones”. LOL!

I suspect in France what you’re seeing in that poll is Muslim support for an American president they perceive as Muslim, and not the communist BHO2 acually is deep down.
