Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., in an interview with WND, said he believes the chickens are coming home to roost in France because, for years, the country with the largest Islamic population in Europe has ignored rising Muslim tensions within its own borders. The real issue the French "are now dealing with," he said, "is [that] you cannot integrate some people into your society."Daniel Pipes, an expert on Islam and the director of the Middle East Forum, a think tank promoting American ideals in that region, thinks the riots in France are a microcosm of the larger radical Islamic goal of gaining a solid foothold in Europe.

Greg, in face of the current unrest on this globe, with the Moslems seemingly at the center of most of them, do you think they are the major players in the endtimes as spoken of in Revelation? ginnyrose

This topic was started on another thread, where Comptom submitted a link to a very good article. It gives some insight into the historical background, and helps you understand why it is not appropriate to blame the Muslims:[url=http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1515278/posts]Barbarians at the Gates of Paris[/url]
