    A cautionary tale of immigration run amok

    The French-Muslim Connection
    By Thomas D. Segel
    May 4, 2004

    There are more than one billion Muslims in the world. The largest Muslim
    population, totaling 180 million, is in Indonesia. It is followed by 125
    million in Pakistan, Bangladesh with 109 million and India with 84
    million. The remainder is spread through 100 countries, including an
    estimated 5 million Muslims in France.

    Though the figure 5 million may not seem large when viewed next to the
    populations of countries such as Indonesia, it still represents almost
    twenty percent of the people in France. What it has done to this western
    nation is negatively impact it so severely that it may soon lose its
    European identity. In fact, if the birth rate continues as projected,
    France will have a Muslim majority in less than 25 years.

    According to the international Limits To Growth Organization writer
    Brenda Walker, \"France should be seen as a cautionary tale of immigration
    run amok, and how quickly things can get out of control. Muslim
    immigration to France is a post-war phenomenon for the most part. Just a
    few decades of high immigration of a group with high fertility has put
    France in the unenviable position of being the European nation thought
    most likely to be the first to introduce sharia (Islamic) law.

    The constant appeasement attitude of officials has also been seen to
    embolden the Muslim population into making strong demands on the country.
    As they grow in numbers most French Muslims feel they can impose the will
    of Islam on the entire country. There is also the threat of violence,
    which is always a concern by French leaders. They have already seen an
    increase in crime and violence against women among the Arab immigrants.

    Starting in the year 2000, following the Intifada uprising, France
    started to experience an escalation of crimes against its Jewish citizens.
    Six synagogues were burned down in less than three weeks. The perpetrators
    were Muslims. By 2002 France was experiencing 12 anti-Semitic incidents
    daily. The Muslim population had grown 10 times larger than the country\'s
    Jewish community and by sheer numbers had placed themselves in a position
    where anti-Semitism seemed to no longer be a concern of those in
    government. Today French Muslims outnumber all non-Catholic ethnic and
    religious factions in the country combined, including Protestants and Jews.

    Also frightening to the French government is the lack of assimilation
    into national identity by these immigrants. Decades of immigration have
    produced a large class of young men who claim Islam, not France, as their
    identity and consider crime as an acceptable life style.

    As France became more and more concerned about the attitudes of its
    Muslims, more forms of appeasement were offered. The Muslim Brotherhood,
    which is an outlaw organization in Egypt was given official status and
    allowed to preach its message of hate. One of the Botherhood\'s basic
    themes is \"It is a duty to kill in the name of Allah.\" France also decided
    to make Muslims more mainstream by giving them a national council. What
    was thought would be a voice of Muslim moderation became instead the voice
    of radical Islam.

    By the time the United States was seeking United Nations resolutions on
    Iraq the French-Muslim connection was so strong that as a country they
    preferred an Iraqi victory and strongly rejected the United States
    position. There are many who feel that France lives in such fear of a
    violent uprising by its Muslim population that it can never take a strong
    western position on anything. There are writers such as Guy Milierre who
    have remarked, \"France behaves more and more as if she does not belong to
    the West any more and as though she is the leader of the Third World.\"

    If this fear of its own population does not seem possible to the reader,
    consider this:

    Ten Arab men were convicted of raping a teenage girl. The Arab families
    left the court shouting revenge. Eight days later the court was burned to
    the ground and the girl along with her family had to flee for their lives.

    More than 23,000 French prison inmates are Muslim, this is more than six
    times the proportion of Muslims to the overall French population.

    From Marseille to Paris synagogues have been destroyed, Jewish men,
    women and children have been attacked, and schools and school buses of
    Jews have been stoned. Even with the strong anti-Semitic violence so
    openly displayed, few officials speak out and fewer members of the media
    report the incidents.

    With all of this as a background Al Qaeda is rapidly recruiting new
    members. In France the terrorist organization, according to best
    estimates, has created military style units of between 35 and 45 thousand
    men.
