Wake up, Europe, you've a war on your hands
Mark Steyn makes some great points about the situation in France, although his history lesson on past Muslim invasions in Europe isn't really necessary. He points out what many Americans don't seem to comprehend: these angry North African Muslim youth are a major problem in many European cities, and have been for a long time. In my opinion, there is little parallel between the European situation and discrimination against minorities in this country, but much of the media keeps trying to find common threads. It's hard to understand if you haven't been there. My bet is that Steyn has. I have been there, and it's still hard for me to explain.
