That c. 10% of France's population is now Moslem has little or rather nothing to do with with the country's colonial past. If it were the explanation, then Sweden or Norway should have no Moslems on their territory at all as they have no colonial past. It does have a lot to do with the unholy Eurabia scheme now under forced implementation by the EU and , specifically in the case of France, with a decree adopted on 29.04.1976 called in original " Décret n°76-383 du 29 avril 1976 Relatif aux conditions d'entrée et de séjour en France des membres des familles des étrangers autorisé à resider en France". The law was initiated by president Valéry Giscard d'Estaign and his then Prime Minister Jacques Chirac . What this law did was wide open the gates of France to mass Moslem immigration from the Maghreb by the simple fact that the Moslem kinship is very flexible and expandable and one Maghrebian could bring any number of his kins to France if he was clever enough to use the generous provisions of the law. Before 1976 Moslems were a marginal element in France, mainly represented by the loyal harkis who survived the massacres by the FLN. Just look at old French movies to see what France's cities were like then.

The 9/11 terror attack has unjustly overshadowed many other interesting developments in the second half of 2001. One of these extremely interesting things was a football match between France and Algeria. It was planned for Saturday, October the 6,2001 on the stade de France in Paris. It was even commnced as scheduled and had it been shortened by 17 minutes it could have ended as other matches tend to do. But not so with French Moslem football fans seeing their Moslem team hopelessly lose 4-1 on behalf of the cursed kafirs! What followed was correctly described as "pitch invasion". Now can you guess who the invaders were ?

" A pitch invasion by Algerian supporters has forced the first ever football match between France and Algeria to be abandoned.

The friendly match before a large crowd at the Stade de France in Paris ended after hundreds of Algerians ran on to the pitch from behind a goal with 17 minutes remaining.

Riot police were deployed and the playing surface was eventually cleared, but debris continued to rain down on police officers as many Algeria fans danced on the athletics track surrounding the pitch.

France defender Lilian Thuram almost came to blows with an Algerian fan, while spectators in the VIP and press seats were hurt by objects thrown by the supporters.

France had been leading 4-1 when the game was called off.

The UK Press Association reported that before the game, Paris police had received a death threat aimed at Zinedine Zidane, France's Marseille-born star."

You wrote triumphantly "the French Muslims have contributed to the host culture." We could see from the above what sort of "contribution" to the host culture the Franch Moslems have made - invading the pitch, pelting French journalists and spectators with stones and other objects,sending death threats to football players from the French national team, attacking police ...All because France was going to win against Algeria which was unthinkable to "the French Muslims" ,wasn't it? In short the contribution you mean is here called jihad against the host culture. It's a great "contribution" you as a Moslem love most , don't you ?

You also wrote gleefully : "Have you forgotten French Football players in the French national team so quickly ?"

Whatever I forget is a trifle compared to the amount of things that you forget or have never heard of.What is much more unfortunate though is that when reminded of them you persevere in ignoring the hints and facts. As a Moslem you can never admit to a kafir like me you're wrong, can you? What you can is just jumping from one subject to another hoping that you'll trap me in some and calling my facts and sources "drivel". E.g. from "bad Romans" who according to you gave no citizenship to anybody ( even though they did make every free inhabitant of the empire Roman citizens), to your "good Turks" who happened to slaughter kafiri babies en masse to be sure of getting to Allah's paradise.

Do I need to tell how nasty and dishonest your tactic is? ...
