Is Islamic extremism the real threat?

More on the rapidly spreading cultural/religious trend

This might have dropped below the radar, but Al Qaida and its allies are literally battling the Crusaders every day in Europe. And so far, Europe isn't doing so well.

"We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists," said Michel Thoomis, secretary general of the Action Police trade union. "This is not a question of urban violence any more. It is an intifada, with stones and firebombs."

The French Interior Ministry has acknowledged the Muslim uprising. The ministry said more than 2,500 police officers have been injured in 2006. This amounts to at least 14 officers each day.

The battles have been under-reported but alarming to French authorities. Muslim street commanders, who run lucrative drug networks, have organized youngsters in housing projects to ambush police and confront security forces. The response time allows hundreds of Muslims to storm police cars and patrols within minutes.

"You no longer see two or three youths confronting police," Thoomis said. "You see whole tower blocks emptying into the streets to set their comrades free when they are arrested."

France's huge Muslim minority community has come under the influence of agents often influenced and financed by Al Qaida. These agents have recruited Muslim youngsters for urban warfare in which police and government representatives are injured daily.

Not surprisingly, Muslim neighborhoods are becoming autonomous zones, with police and government workers too scared to enter. The police union is demanding the Interior Ministry supply officers with armored cars.

European law enforcement sources say France could be a model for other countries. The most worried are Britain and the Netherlands.
 
Well just before you all get and cosy, I've just read in today's Scotland on Sunday that two conservative Muslims are, rather paradoxically, standing as candidates for the Christian Peoples' Alliance Scotland in the forthcoming elections to the Scottish Parliament and one, an Imam, has promised to bring 30,000 Muslim votes from Glasgow with him. Ermmm.

Oh yes, and I disagree with your assertion Lingy that only weak people are religious. Religion has always offered a route for the strong to obtain power by other means. In the days before universal suffrage it was the only route to political influence for many, and today senior clergy have a more powerful voice than most elected MPs. The government's appeasement over faith schools illustrates this point.
