I am quoted in this WND article, “Radical Islam blamed for French rioting: Muslims ‘scorn’ Europe’s ways, ‘conspire to take it over,’” saying a lot of things I have never said; I think they have mixed up my article on the French riots with someone else’s. But anyway, the statements of Tancredo and Pipes are noteworthy.
U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., in an interview with WND, said he believes the chickens are coming home to roost in France because, for years, the country with the largest Islamic population in Europe has ignored rising Muslim tensions within its own borders. The real issue the French “are now dealing with,” he said, “is [that] you cannot integrate some people into your society.”
Daniel Pipes, an expert on Islam and the director of the Middle East Forum, a think tank promoting American ideals in that region, thinks the riots in France are a microcosm of the larger radical Islamic goal of gaining a solid foothold in Europe.
“The great majority of Muslims in Europe see themselves as bearers of a superior civilization and see themselves growing prodigiously,” he told WND. “Through a cultural, religious and demographic confidence they feel scorn towards European ways and conspire to take it over.”
