THE NORTHERNMOST AFRICAN COLONY (via Mike Daley):

France 'forming ethnic ghettoes' (Caroline Wyatt, 7/06/04, BBC)

Many French city suburbs are becoming ethnic ghettoes, a report has warned.

The study by the French domestic intelligence services found many areas were populated by poor, young French of north African immigrant backgrounds.

The report, leaked to Le Monde newspaper, found at least half of the 630 suburbs it looked at had already become separate ethnic communities.

The report warned the ghettoes, cut off from mainstream French society, could encourage radical Islam to take root.


The French are no help in the war on terror for the same reason Democrats are no help in improving education--they're captives.
