AU REVOIR: Krauthammer summarizes the French crisis:
On the one side are the protester-arsonists, many if not most of them Muslim, whom the Interior Minister called racaille (rabble)--young, restless, violent, vibrant, angry, jobless, envious and fecund. And on the other side is an aged and exhausted civilization, the hollowed-out core of European Christendom, static, aging, contented, coddled, passive and literally without faith. Who would you think will win in the end?France bet that it could use Muslims for cheap labor without assimilating them into French culture. A once estimable nation is now losing that bet. Appeasement is a strategy for cultural demise. What will it take to get the United States to pay attention to its porous southern border?
