UPDATE IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE COLUMN
This lady is beyond magnificent.
I question a few details in her assessment of who France’s allies are in resisting the worldwide jihad movement. Nonetheless she does seem to have a fundamental understanding of bare naked Islam, which is much more than I can say about America’s current crop of feckless political leaders. She also clearly understands the existential danger in Europe’s foolish open-borders policy.
Lastly, and most importantly, Ms. Le Pen is not afraid to actually name the enemy which threatens Western Civilization. She is a heroine of the Western counter-jihad movement.
I alluded in a general way to a problem I have with Ms. Le Pen’s idea of who Europe’s allies are and should be. Following some advice and counsel with a learned friend, I decided it would be appropriate to spell out my concern in some detail.
Ms. Le Pen suggested that Europe should change alliances, even to include Muslim states which, as she phrased it, are fighting against the terrorism of fundamental Islam. She named Egypt, Iran, Russia and the United Arab Emirates as potential allies. I don’t understand how Ms. Le Pen comes to the conclusion that Iran, Egypt, the UAE, or any Muslim state could possibly be a trustworthy ally with Western Civilization in this World War.
Time will tell us if she reconsiders her position with regard to those nations.
