Trouble in Gnutopia

From “godless” France:

A backdrop to the massacre in Paris on Wednesday by self-professed al Qaeda terrorists is that city officials have increasingly ceded control of heavily Muslim neighborhoods to Islamists, block by block.

France has Europe’s largest population of Muslims, some of whom talk openly of ruling the country one day and casting aside Western legal systems for harsh, Islam-based Shariah law.

“Islam is a permanent part of France now. It is not going away,” Mr. Kern said. “I think the future looks very bleak. The problem is a lot of these younger-generation Muslims are not integrating into French society. Although they are French citizens, they don’t really have a future in French society. They feel very alienated from France. This is why radical Islam is so attractive because it gives them a sense of meaning in their life.”
Some Muslim activists gleefully predict that France will be a Muslim-majority country in the not-too-distant future. “Who has the right to say that France in 30 or 40 years will not be a Muslim country? Who has the right in this country to deprive us of it?” said Marwan Muhammed, a spokesman for Collective Against Islamophobia in France.

Gatestone reports that an intelligence document leaked to Le Figaro said Muslims are creating a separate public school society “completely cut off from non-Muslim students.”

Over 1,000 French supermarkets are selling Islamic books that call for jihad and the killing of non-Muslims. A poll commissioned by the newspaper Le Monde last year found that 74 percent of French citizens view Islam as intolerant and as incompatible with French values.

    At the same time, France does need to take a good hard look at itself. The hypocrisy in the screeches over freedom of speech in France is incredible. On one hand, there are cries that blaspheming everything religious is some kind of “duty” of liberal democracy, and everyone religious has some kind of supreme obligation to be offended in silence, if not in gratitude. On the other, this is a country of such hysterically fragile sensibilities over religion that they made it ILLEGAL to pray in the street, because it’s apparently too troubling to see the secular streets of Paris sullied with the most basic and benign of religious practices for the poor, delicate French intellectual. Freedom of speech my ass. There are towns in France where 90 percent of the students at Catholic schools are Muslims because the Catholics allow the girls to wear headscarves.

    Radicals, whether violent or in support of violence, are responsible for themselves and their actions, and may God have mercy on their souls. But this stuff doesn’t happen in a vacuum. The scale of naivite exhibited by white France in importing people from deeply religious and non-liberal cultures and expecting them to abandon public-facing religion and become disciples of Derrida (under threat of being ostracized) is astounding.
