Question about French communists

Reader comment on item: When Conservatives Argue about Islam

Submitted by Harrak (Canada), Jul 7, 2007 at 19:03

Dr Pipes,

You said: "I compare non-violent Islamists to French Communists, who worked through the democratic system to achieve Stalin's totalitarian goals." Do you mean that unionization, social values and effective bureaucracy are totalitarian goals that were acheived by the communists in France! or you mean the independent top secret French nuclear program! can you give us one example of a Franco-communist manifestation!

Thanks for enlightening us.
