British multi-culturalism vs French pragmatism

Reader comment on item: Weak Brits, Tough French

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Jul 12, 2005 at 09:35

The difference between Britain and France is like the difference between Canada and the United States. Britain and Canada are hopeless multi-cultural societies whereas France and the United States have made a point of integrating all immigrants, and that includes Muslim immigrants.

Therefore, the Brits have encouraged Muslim students to wear their yraditional clothes whereas the French have taken a tough line against the Islamic head-scarf.

The Brits have allowed Islamic Fundamentalism to flourish on their back-yard, whereas the French have fought against Islamic Fundamentalists and forced Franch imams to pray in French as opposed to Arabic.

British culture will soon disappear whereas French traditions will survive and prosper.

Britain will be conquered by the legions of Islamic Fundamentalism whereas French Muslims will face reality and become good French citizens, proud to be French.

British Muslim women will be forced to cover their faces by their men, whereas French Muslim women will be allowed to show their faces by their nation.

France will survive and see the next century. Britain will implode.
