A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

The French make a "threat": Two French journalists have been kidnapped by terrorists in Iraq. The French had believed that their opposition to the war in Iraq would act to inoculate their citizens against Islamic terrorism. They were wrong.

Instead, the terrorists are demanding that France "reconsider" its law banning overtly religious symbols in schools -- specifically the muslim headscarve or hijab.


In a televised statement, Chirac demanded that the militants free the journalists, who have been missing for more than a week, and announced he had dispatched his foreign minister to the Middle East to seek their release.


Yeah, that's gonna do it.

The French still don't get it. In the war against Islamofascism, there can be no non-aligned nations. For the French to believe that they are somehow immune would be laughable if it weren't so tragic for the two journalists who will likely die for their nation's hubris.

The French can also thank their neighbors the Spanish and other countries like the Philippines who have demonstrated that some civilized nations can be intimidated by the brutal murder of a couple of its citizens.
