First of all ,

The stated legislation does not mean that any concept such as "Eurabia" because there are plenty of legal loopholes through which the immigration of the families of Muslims from Maghreb can be stopped in France. Here are these legal loopholes ;;;

1 ° The foreigner does not justify a year's residence in France in good standing;

2 ° The alien does not have steady resources sufficient to support his family;

3 Housing conditions that the alien intends to ensure his family are inadequate;

4 ° The presence of or family members on French territory constitutes a threat to public order;

5 ° The results of the medical examination which must undergo in their country of origin, or family members show that they are suffering from disease or infirmity that may endanger public health, order public or public security;
Now it is very easy for any officer who is looking after these issues , to expel anyone from France on the pretext of law 1 & 4 since the terms "not in good standing" in law 1 & "a theat to the public order" in law 4 are simply vague terms and can be used arbitrarily to prevent the incoming of any person in France.
Even after satisfying most of these conditions , the spouses and children do not get automatic citizenship in France , in fact what they get is just another residence permit. So , in my view your citation of this law does not justify the fictional "Eurabia". Period.

"Before 1976 Moslems were a marginal element in France, mainly represented by the loyal harkis who survived the massacres by the FLN."

My Answer --- > I would like to take this opportunity to ask you about your view on the French policy and colonization in Algeria. I would like to remind you that for a long time in Algerian assembly under French rule no one but Pied Noirs only had the electoral rights . The indigenous Muslims in Algeria for long had to renounce their traditional identities to become French citizens. There was no limits or regulations by the French authorities for allowing the French colonists to come and live in Algeria during the French rule. I would like to know your views about all these historical issues and in particular do you think it was right for the Algerian Muslims to seek independence from French rule or not ???

Also I would love to know from where you say that number of the Muslims in France is around 10% considering that France does not count her citizens based upon religion.

Also I would like to take this opportunity to remind you about the economic conditions that were responsible for the Muslim immigration into France. Let us see the facts . France lot plenty of young men to the course of the two wars and that is why she needed the Muslims in the first place.

See the colonialization and immigration are both undercurrents of the society which are the results of capitalism. If you reject the first two , then you happen to reject capitalism. I would like to know whether you accept immigration as an inevitable resultant of capitalism or not ?

Regarding football hooliganism , well in Europe the hooliganism of British and other football fans are legendary. Does that mean that those races (of non-Muslim stock) also do not or have not contributed to the enrichment of the European culture ?
