Wake up and smell the jihad

Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Revolution in France*

Submitted by Johnny Carpati (United States), Nov 10, 2005 at 19:03

I don't think it serves any good purpose to deny what this is. The French leftist government has ignored the elephant in the room, the one with the turban. Let's not hesitate to call this a terrorist riot. Unemployment doesn't make people do this, neither does being "disaffected French youth." These people are as much French as George W. Bush. The problem is, the government there is so weak that you have to wonder if they even remember how to handle things correctly over there. It's a scary situation, especially for France's Jewish population, when the only French politician who is and always has been right on this issue also happens to be a rabid racist and anti-semite.
