(Used to be you had to bring in a foreign Army for all-out war literally capture the land of another country. Then again... we're talking about France, here.)
In the recent and ongoing riots in France, one of the things that keeps getting reported is how unemployment is so high in those areas and how lack of jobs is such an issue--assumed to be the government's fault in this case--and behind the rage of the rioters. I just saw something that made me wonder if there aren't other factors regarding that lack of a job issue. Over on lfg quoting df they posted:
...a booklet distributed by the Saudi Embassy in Washington offers instructions on how to “build a wall of resentment” between Muslims and infidels, said Nina Shea, director of the Center for Religious Freedom.
Among the book’s directives: “Never greet the Christian or Jew first. Never congratulate the infidel on his holiday. Never befriend an infidel unless it is to convert him. Never imitate the infidel. Never work for an infidel,” Shea quoted during a committee hearing.
So it's actually a common tenet or encouragement to "not work for an infidel"?!
No wonder these people have such a high rate of unemployment compared to the rest of France. Maybe a good number of them are not willing to work for anyone in "the rest of" France.
