Hyperbolic Blathering

"We have to reinforce our borders while remaining true to our values."
"Terrorists steal the lives of innocent people and they also want to suspend ours. France will remain a country of freedom of movement, of culture, an active, brave dynamic country that doesn't surrender to fear."
"We must be implacable against all forms of violence. No xenophobic, anti-Semite, anti-Muslim act must be tolerated."
French President Francois Hollande

"It is obvious now. Among the migrants, there are some terrorists."
Bernard Squarcini, former chief, French intelligence

Ahmad Al Mohammad, is not really Ahmad Al Mohammad, but no one other than his mother who may see his photograph in some publication is able to identify him. And she may not want to. At least to the general public, let alone the French investigators who would like to know who is the man who in Paris on 13th of November 2015, wearing a suicide vest blew himself up in a more generalized melee taking place in no fewer than seven locations, costing the lives of 128 Parisians.

The speculation is, however, that many "fake" refugees are filtering in to Europe; according to German officials a third of asylum seekers claiming to be Syrian were in possession of fake passports, easily obtained, benefiting Moroccans, Tunisians, Algerians and Egyptians all posing as Syrians. How would Europeans know? The assumption is that all those young men flooding Europe are Syrians escaping the bloody tyranny of Bashar al-Assad; actually no: although Assad has butchered more Syrians than Islamic State, the assumption is they're desperately escaping Daesh.

There has been a predictable backlash to the established fact that among the Islamist attackers in Paris on 13th November, a 'Syrian refugee' was present and prepared to martyr himself along with innocent bystanders. In the United States lawmakers are revisiting their president's welcome mat for Syrian refugees. Europe, aside from Sweden, Germany and Austria, has always had its doubts. And in Canada, a majority of the public urges caution, while their newly-elected prime minister blithely ignores caution.

This msut be a typically French thing; to be faced directly with consequences of deliberate oblivion to dangerous situations, but to forge ahead with full resolve nonetheless. French President Francois Hollande is in mourning along with the French people, at the catastrophic loss of life caused by a jihadist scheme to bring France to its metaphorical knees, but Mr Hollande refuses to bow. And nor will he think overlong about his obligation to caution on behalf of his country.

He has announced that his country will not shirk its responsibility to Syrian refugees, and French mayors gave him a standing ovation when he announced that "30,000 refugees will be welcomed over the next two years. Our country has the duty to respect this commitment"; and a 50-million euro investment fund would be established in support of housing for those refugees. Unbowed and compassionate to a fault.

The fault just happens to be, under the circumstances, foolhardy in the extreme. France cannot, at the present time, manage its huge number of Muslims, a great number of whom detest all the freedoms and liberties and equalities that living in France and holding French citizenship guarantees them. They could live anywhere in the Muslm world in squalid poverty, resentment and hostility against authorities; they just happen to be living in a free democratic country under those conditions.

Add to that boiling cauldron of resentful humanity whose religion endorses violence as a way of coping with the recalcitrance of non-Muslims to surrender to Islam? France, after all, is considered to be the House of War, which requires faithful Muslims to undertake jihad in order to turn it into the House of Islam. After all that has happened, is happening and will continue to happen with the Muslims living in France, those Muslims who present a clear and present danger to the Republic, their president remains oblivious.

He will take in and give sustenance to Syrian refugees. And he will continue to send his war planes over Syria to clobber the living hell out of Syrian Islamists. Not quite understanding, evidently, that at the present time and perhaps for the foreseeable future it is not the foreign Islamists who pose a direct threat to France so much as their influence on the Islamists who live in France and enjoy the fruits of democracy and liberty -- to do as they see fit, as impressionable Muslims who detest the West.
