History: The Sequel!...

With riots by immigrants almost a weekly occurrence in France, it might be expected that French President Nicolas Sarkozy would be taking steps to combat this pressing problem. After all, Sarkozy largely came to power on the anti-immigration ticket, his hard-line words on this topic stealing the thunder of Jean Marie Le Pen’s Front National, the party usually associated with tackling this problem in the minds of the French people.

But at a conference earlier this month, Sarkozy showed his true colours...

In a blatant attempt to court the ever increasing Arabic and Islamic voter base in France, Sarkozy called Arabic “the language of the future, of science and of modernity” and expressed the wish that “more French people share in the language that expresses great civilisational and spiritual values.” He continued:
“We must invest in the Arabic language because to teach it symbolizes a moment of exchange, of openness and of tolerance, and it brings with it one of the oldest and most prestigious civilizations of the world."

Sarkozy is not even French, but Jewish.
So his description of middle-eastern Islamic "culture" being more preferable to European civilization is not without precedent.

The Spanish Inquisition, which began in 1481, cannot be understood without recognizing the significance of this epic 771-year struggle between Christians and Muslims over the Spanish peninsula. What took the great Berber Gen. Tariq ibn Zayid only eight years to conquer on behalf of the Umayyad Caliphate required almost 100 times as long to regain, and neither King Ferdinand II of Aragon nor his wife, Queen Isabella of Castile, was inclined to risk any possibility of having to repeat the grand endeavor. Isabella, in particular, was concerned about reports of conversos, purported Christians who had pretended to convert from Judaism but were still practicing their former religion. This was troubling, as it was reasonable to assume that those who were lying about their religious conversion were also lying about their loyalty to the united crowns and it was widely feared that Jews were again encouraging Muslim leaders to attempt the recapture of al-Andalus, as they had its original capture eight centuries before. ("It remains a fact that the Jews, either directly or through their coreligionists in Africa, encouraged the Mohammedans to conquer Spain." The Jewish Encyclopedia (1906). Vol XI, 485.)

This is the reason why the Muslim destruction of Southern Europe for nearly seven centuries is, today, portrayed as a wonderful event, while the hard-fought-for struggle on behalf of the Spaniards to reclaim their lands and re-plant the Christian flag is portrayed as a hideous injustice.

Once again we see that the destruction of European Civilization and European Peoples is called "tolerance" and "diversity", while any suggestion that European Peoples have a right to live is denounced as racist and xenophobic.
