    LOL. I was wondering the same thing. When exactly did the right's love affair with the French happen?
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    European 'No-Go' Zones: Fact or Fiction?

    Apparently someone still believes in the no-go zones and wrote a paper on it. I'm not sure exactly.

    Gatestone is a well known anti Muslim site, hardly surprising they would have such an article on their site.

    Repeating nonsense from the same sources which have already been discredited doesn't make them correct.

    Gatestone Institute - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Institute for Policy Studies has noted that "[t]he institute was founded in 2011 by Nina Rosenwald, an heiress of the Sears Roebuck empire who has been a key philanthropic backer of anti-Muslim groups and individuals in the United States".[23] Sheila Musaji's The American Muslim includes it and Nina Rosenwald in a Who’s Who of the Anti-Muslim/Anti-Arab/Islamophobia Industry,[24] Ali Gharib, of the blog Open Zion, describes it as "a spin-off of the Hudson Institute where right-wingers (along with Alan Dershowitz) champion hawkish, often "pro-Israel" policies and, not infrequently, rattle off Islamophobic blogposts."[25]

    Isn't the institute run by an Iranian?

    Okay I didn't know that. It appeared an Iranian was running, so I didn't suspect it.

    Lmao, no the institute is not run by an Iranian. However, an Iranian on its board of advisors has written this:

    Amir Taheri - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Shaul Bakhash, a "a specialist in mideast history at George Mason University,"[3] wrote in a review of Taheri's 1989 book Nest of Spies in The New Republic that Taheri concocts conspiracies in his writings, and noted that he "repeatedly refers us to books where the information he cites simply does not exist. Often the documents cannot be found in the volumes to which he attributes them.... [He] repeatedly reads things into the documents that are simply not there."[5] Bakhash stated that Taheri's 1988 Nest of Spies is "the sort of book that gives contemporary history a bad name."[5][6]
    Taheri's byline was attached to an op-ed in the The New York Times of July 11, 2002 under the title "The Death of bin Ladenism". His clip claimed "Osama bin Laden is dead. The news first came from sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan almost six months ago" [7]
    In 2007, Rudy Giuliani campaign adviser Norman Podhoretz wrote an article in Commentary magazine called "The Case for Bombing Iran," which included the following quotation (allegedly from Ayatollah Khomeini): "We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world."[3] The quotation, which was later repeated by Podhoretz on the PBS NewsHour, and by Michael Ledeen in National Review, surprised Bakhash, who had never heard it before and found it out of character for Khomeni.[3] Bakhash traced the quotation back to a book by Taheri, and reported that "no one can find the book Taheri claimed as his source in the Library of Congress or a search of Persian works in libraries worldwide. The statement itself can't be found in databases and published collections of Khomeini statements and speeches."[3]
    ... Interesting... a guy who has been found making up ****... writing for a group making an accusation already discredited.... there is a pattern here somewhere.

    I'd only watch it (if I could) if they had Hannity, Coulter and O'Really look alikes.
