The terrible news that two French journalists have been kidnapped in Iraq despite that country’s decision not to participate in the war is a reminder that no country in the West is ever going to be immune from the demands of militant Islam.
The new legislation banning the hijab from French public schools.
Now, whatever you might think of that law, it was passed with the overwhelming approval of both chambers of the French legislature, according to the rules of France’s democracy and, quite clearly, the wishes of its people. To the extreme Islamists, none of this counts. All that matters are the demands of their insistent, raging, terrible god, a god with whom no negotiation is possible.
