They Took Paris
Does any city exemplify the West more than Paris? Is there a symbol to identify Western progress better than the Eiffel Tower? How, in a city that so exemplifies Western progress, can the Muslim call to prayer bring traffic and commerce to a halt in certain areas? How can non-Muslims be afraid to go into certain parts of the City of Light? How come police and emergency services do not enter certain sectors of the city at all, unless it is in force? The French have ceded certain sections of their capital to Islamists without even putting up a fight. After the recent terror outrages, there is some push back, but I expect that to be short-lived. Parisians will soon go back to capitulating little by little to the most radical elements within Islam.
