From Le Figaro :
Hostage Crisis In Algeria: A Frenchman
Amongst Those Dead
Le Figaro is the official mouthpiece of France's "conservative" core. Yet even in the land of surrender cheese, the right's so-called newspaper of record is not above playing the globalist "we're a nation of immigrants" game.
At first glance, the news flash above comes across as inherently contradictory. A Frenchman a hostage? A Frenchman an "activist?" The cognitive dissonance that leaps almost cynically from the page is no accident; Le Figaro is intentionally forcing readers to question the very definition of French identity.
The current showdown in Mali is merely proxy-war elevator music playing in the lobby. Meanwhile the full orchestra that represents the clash of civilization between West and Everbody Else shakes the rafters while roaring forth to a violent crescendo.
Of course the "Frenchman" activist killed in Mali is no Jaques-Arthur; his name, of course, is Mohammed Merah* .
