Nidra Poller tries to make sense of the inscrutability of French politics:
Something more profound is at work, a slow process of
dhimmitude that is setting up its own laws and prohibitions. It does not mean
that the young man (will we ever know his name?) who pushed the policeman to his
death is a Muslim. What it does mean is that French society has internalized an
attitude of self-indictment.
