without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

"What touched off the recent riots, for example, was not a heavy-handed presence of the police and French authorities in Muslim neighborhoods. It was the fact that the police had, until recently, treated these areas as "no-go zones," left to be run by the Muslims themselves. It was the re-assertion of some degree of French control after years of Multiculturalist tolerance that set off the riots.

It is not just that French Muslims need to assimilate into French culture. It is that there has to be a self-confident culture for them to assimilate to. One cannot assimilate with self-annihilation.

In a nation like America, the acceptance of Multiculturalism leads to a kind of slow rot, as the distinctive ideas at the root our culture — the Enlightenment ideals of our Founding Fathers — slowly die from neglect. But such a nation can ride on its previous cultural momentum for generations, taking many years to collapses from within — and that gives us a long time to fight Multiculturalism before it is too late. A nation like France, which finds itself host to a large minority of religiously strident Muslim immigrants thoroughly untouched by Enlightenment intellectual and political traditions, will not be allowed the luxury of a death by slow rot. It must act much more quickly to save itself.

It is in the streets of the Parisian suburbs that one can now see the ultimate effects of Multiculturalism — and sense a premonition of the dark and murderous future that lays ahead for Europe."
