re: No-Go Zones in France

What’s not said in this article is that the problem in France has (1) Nothing to do with US foreign policy, and (2) nothing to do with Israeli occupation.  The common denominator instead seems to be Islamist ideology.  Unfortunately, Western response is still handicapped by political correctness, taboo, and stigma.  Two oldies but goodies about Islam in France, here and here.
