Wow, I didn't know Bardot had two brain cells to rub together, but she sure got that one right. Had the nerve to make noise about it, too.

Good on her.

Onward Muslim Soldiers is jam-packed with some of the most politically incorrect statements about Islam (e.g., "Jihad and killing is the head of Islam."), though it is instructive to note that many of these statements, like the example above, are direct quotes from Muslim religious leaders themselves.  Such is Spencer's tack in providing his critical analysis of Islamic writings, history, and current practice.
His previous book "Islam Unveiled..." was a really good eye-opener (thanks VOA for the recommendation a while back).  I hope this one is just as good.

The evidence of her latest offense: Bardot denounces the "Islamicization" of France and blames the degeneration of French society on her country’s liberal immigration laws. "For twenty years we have submitted to a dangerous and uncontrolled underground infiltration," she writes in her new book that became an instant bestseller in France this summer. "Not only does [Islam] fail to give way to our laws and customs. Quite the contrary, as time goes by it tries to impose its own law on us."

I, too, am certainly grateful that Bardot is outspoken and concerned. Are there more like her? We can look to France and learn but will we? And, no flames, I mean looking to those foreignly funded and operated mosques on our own soil who may not be so keen on upholding or abiding by our laws, not those who wish to embrace our laws and live peacefully and productively among us. As most of our ancestors did when they came to America.

So how do the French respond? Just like with WWII, many sit back and apathetically watch the progress of this 'movement' and prosecute Bardot for speaking the truth. Prosecuting her under the guise of racism, which is not accurate as Islam spans many races.

At least the French are reading her book (bestseller), hopefully the regular citizens can work to save their rich and diverse culture, and the Catholicism that used to be taken for granted.

Bardot had been concerned that beautiful churches were closing and mosques were springing up in their place.

Will the Muslims in charge tolerate the Notre Dame or Mont St. Michel? I think not. Perhaps the French will start to rethink the whole thing when proposals are made to outlaw alcohol. The French without wine (or should that be whine - wink)? Sacre Bleu!!

The book's author was on CSPAN's Washington Journal this morning. Came across as very intelligent on the issue. Too bad he had to deal with some very dumb callers.
