The mediaÂ over the weekend were trying hard to cast the riots in France as the product of youth, not Islamic,Â angst; IÂ caughtÂ a few strained parallels to theÂ youth protests of the 1960s from one of CNN’s PC correspondents.Â The mediaÂ are loath to acknowledgeÂ a creeping Eurabia, though that’s getting harder to overlook when the rioters themselves areÂ saying, “This is jihad.”Â According to the muddled post-mortems from panicky liberals,Â the unrest isÂ somehow the result of French repression. This illustratesÂ once again that the West’s greatest enemyÂ isÂ itself.Â Haven’t the liberals of EuropeÂ noticed that Islamic attacks from Scandinavia to Spain to Britain toÂ France are occurring in the countries most accomodating of Islam? And why is this? Because the Islamic groups know thatÂ more, not less, accomodation of IslamÂ will follow theÂ attacks.Â Sarkozy in FranceÂ has already learned this; heÂ has been rapped on the knuckles for saying thatÂ rioters torching cars are “scum.”Â Â

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
