The Folly of Appeasement

Sphere: Related Content

The French have stayed out of most military undertakings lately because they wish not to incite the Muslim population that resides there and around the world. To this point it seems to have worked. Maybe for not much longer:

Deputy al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has urged a militant Algerian Islamist group to punish "crusader nation" France, even though it vehemently opposed the US-led war in Iraq, a newspaper said on Thursday.

The Le Figaro daily cited a security expert who had reviewed the entire tape, released on Monday, in which Zawahiri called on the Algerian GSPC group to become "a bone in the throat of the American and French crusaders."

France has a major problem on their hands. As "youths" burned cars across the nation over the last two years, the French should have taken it as a wakeup call. Alas they did not.

Update: Pope Benedict has riled up the Muslim street. I expect this to be at least as big as the Mohammed cartoon madness.
