War In Europe Has Begun- Do They Know It?

Not only this blog predicted a brutal terror war in the streets of France. Mark Steyn admits his prediction of 2010 jihad was off by many years. He explains how the French anti-war position meant less about their view of Saddam and more about their fear of the Arab Street in Paris. He writes that when only the Jews in France were targeted, Chiraq and Company thought they were safe:

For half a decade, French Arabs have been carrying on a low-level intifada against synagogues, kosher butchers, Jewish schools, etc. The concern of the political class has been to prevent the spread of these attacks to targets of more, ah, general interest. They seem to have lost that battle. Unlike America's Europhiles, France's Arab street correctly identified Chirac's opposition to the Iraq war for what it was: a sign of weakness.

Meanwhile that British Prince recently complained about American mistreatment of the religion of Islam. As if that is the problem.

Jeff Jacoby comments:

Of course Islam should not be gratuitously insulted. But neither should it be sugar-coated or kowtowed to. Yet too many Western elites are unwilling to speak plainly about the problems within Islam itself, or to hold Muslim culture to what should be universal standards of decency and justice. Far from being "too confrontational" in their attitude toward Islam, they have been too indulgent and deferential, careful never to say anything that might be deemed insensitive.

Indulgence and deference is the strategy of Chiraq. His political opponent is Nicolas Sarkozy who branded the rioters "scum". Chiraq has chosen to pillory Sarkozy for such plain talk for its perceived political gain than face the rioting for what it is: a declaration of war by France's Muslim citizens against the country.

In the vain of Bush's political opponents here in America, Ciraq has called for "a spirit of dialogue and respect". AP reports:

Chirac said France was determined to promote "respect for all, justice and equal opportunities." Violence has been concentrated in poor suburbs with large immigrant populations.

The government is scurrying to meet with Muslim leaders:

Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin met eight key ministers and the head of the Paris mosque, Dalil Boubakeur. After the meeting, Mr Boubakeur urged a change in tone from the government.

"What I want from the authorities, from Mr Nicolas Sarkozy, the prime minister and senior officials are words of peace," he said.

What he wants from auhorities? What is the word for "surrender" in French?
