Ian Hunter: What if the Islamists took France?

Michel Houellebecq’s novel Submission paints a dreary picture of life on a Western university campus that, as someone who has spent most of his professional life in universities, actually rings quite true. The most chilling part of this tale, however, involves an Islamist party winning a democratic national election — a fictional scenario that may end up being closer to the truth than many of us would like to believe.


My prediction stands… We will witness France cede territory.

    For the third time in a century France would require western armies to rid their country of an invader.

      Send our young men to die for European Socialism? Meanwhile back home the Islamists are running amuck while our own socialists do everything to appease them. I have no desire to fight for Europe and I’m sure I’m not the only Canadian who feels that way.

    Good news for taxpayers. The National Post is reporting that it will only cost eighty million dollars by March to house refugees in hotel rooms. I wonder if that covers room service and wifi.

      I sure hope so. If we’re getting reamed we need full value.

  • It is way too late for Western Europe. The Balkans is a blueprint for what will happen to Western Europe.

    Western Europeans either find a way to break the Islamic cult or get ready for a slow long decent into civil war and full Islamization.

    Anyway the action plays out, expect lots of blood. And you can thank the brain dead leftist progressives for all of the diversity.

      The descent into civil wars and Islamization will not be decent, most definitely. Lots of blood, though, for sure!

    There is only one road to peace according to France’s own playbook

      Hear, hear!

      And please never forget that this shared capital must have a permanent Organization of Islamic Cooperation (57 nations) United Nations presence.

    A cynical person might think they already have.

    All the hostiles have to do is consolidate and expand their no-go zones through violence and intimidation until there is no France left.
