Will the French constitution die on the streets of Paris today? will we see more devolution of the law in france?
A few years back I was criticized for a throwaway observation to the effect that ''I find it easier to be optimistic about the futures of Iraq and Pakistan than, say, Holland or Denmark." But this is why. In defiance of traditional immigration patterns, these young men are less assimilated than their grandparents. French cynics like the prime minister, Dominique de Villepin, have spent the last two years scoffing at the Bush Doctrine: Why, everyone knows Islam and democracy are incompatible. If so, that's less a problem for Iraq or Afghanistan than for France and Belgium.
as I read reports of european police authorities allowing these immigrant ghetto's become islands of lawlessness and we see things like the australian government saying that wife-beating is important to the muslim culture will we see a france that will have dejur or even stronger defacto canton's of sharia?
I watch europe and I see europe as the new face of Islamic extremism and it looks more, not less, likely we will see another World War in Europe.
