      In the middle of February 2006, Ilan Halimi, a young Jewish Frenchman, was lured into the hands of kidnappers by a pretty female decoy. This gang, calling themselves "The Barbarians," is a well organized, murderous, and racist band of youths who are often identified with Islam and have recently been responsible for a lot of crime in France. The ringleader, Youssef Fofana, 25, a French citizen of Ivorian origin, from Ivory Coast, has been apprehended by authorities and awaits trial. French police have said Fofana's black gang used young white women to lure potential Jewish targets to locations where they could be kidnapped. Assuming that he was rich because he was Jewish, Ilan was held for an initial ransom of over $500,000. While Ilan was held captive by these thugs he was mercilessly tortured. He was beaten, burned by cigarette butts, had fingers cut off, and was finally burned alive and left to die beside some rail tracks where he was discovered, barely alive, by police. Ilan died shortly after being discovered. French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy denounced Halimi's killing as an anti-Semitic crime.

      Over the last several years, anti-Jewish violence, property destruction, and racist language has been wildly increasing and French-Jews are worried more every month that it will spiral even higher. France is home to Europe's largest population of Muslims "” about 6 million "” as well as the continent's largest community of Jews, about 600,000.

      Last week there were three more attacks on Jews by Arab and African immigrants in suburban Paris, according to police. None of the latest victims was seriously injured, but the attacks heightened the nervousness of French Jews. Jewish leaders perceive as intensifying anti-Semitism in France, mainly among Muslims of Arab or African heritage, but also growing among Caribbean islanders from former colonies. A Jewish doctor in this picturesque town said a few days ago that many of his friends intended to vote for Le Pen. "Of course, because he is the best for the Jews of France," he said. A friend of his, an economics professor who took part in the conversation, conceded that although things had improved, most of the Jews of Aix-en-Provence would vote either for the right-wing candidate Nicolas Sarkozy or Le Pen.

      Radical Muslims in France's housing estates are waging an undeclared "intifada" against the police, with violent clashes injuring an average of 14 officers each day. As the interior ministry said that nearly 2,500 officers had been wounded this year, a police union declared that its members were "in a state of civil war" with Muslims in the most depressed "banlieue" estates which are heavily populated by unemployed youths of north and subsaharan African origin. Police representatives told the newspaper Le Figaro that the "taboo" of attacking officers on patrol has been broken. Instead, officers – especially those patrolling in pairs or small groups – faced attacks as soon as they tried to arrest locals.

      When people talk about ghettos in France, they're talking about these projects, high-rises which are being built far away from the city center to house African and Arab immigrants. Many of these young men try to dominate their own neighborhood, resulting to violence, especially against young women. They rule gangland style, combined with the male-dominated traditions of the Arab countries they came from. It's gotten so bad that today most of the young women only feel safe if they're covered up or if they stay at home. Girls who want to look just like other French girls are considered provocative, asking for trouble. There was a trial in Lille where a 13- year-old girl was gang raped by 80 men. Yes. Sometimes it's 80 or 50 or 10. 18 teenagers were convicted of raping a 15-year-old girl over a two-month period. 17-year- old French Muslim girl named Sohane Benziane was burned alive in the basement of this apartment complex by a gang leader who had told her he didn't want to see her on his turf. At least 70,000 young women have come under pressure to accept arranged marriages according to France's Commission for Integration.

      Following Poland's entry into the European Union in May 2004, Poles gained the right to work in other EU countries. While France put in place controls to curb Eastern European migration, the United Kingdom (along with the Republic of Ireland) did not impose restrictions. Workers from eastern Europe are flooding to Britain in unprecedented numbers nearly two years after the eight former Soviet bloc countries joined the European Union. Official figures published yesterday showed that a total of 579,000 people have registered to work in the UK since April 2004. They include 128,000 who arrived in the last six months alone – a higher rate than in the same period last year. Another 200,000 Poles have emigrated to Ireland as well as other Western EU nations.

      Poland's ambassador to London recently said there could be as many as 600,000 of his fellow nationals in the UK. If, however, you believe highly-respected Polish publication Polityka's estimate that 1 million have moved to the UK from Poland alone and combine this with the popular belief that between half and two thirds of the Eastern-Bloc immigrants are from Poland, the overall number of migrants from Eastern-bloc countries could be over 1.5 million. Apart from the self-employed, who are largely in the building trade, most have registered as factory workers, packers and waiters. The figures show there has been no slackening in the flow of workers from the east. Most UK industries have been able to fuel their expansion and advances with hard working Poles, Slovaks, Lithuanians and Czechs.

        Death to Allah??? Michael said??? you must be a very very unintelligent person.
        Any educated person knows,the word Allah means God just in a different language...
        You think in Japan God is called God as well???

        fact of the matter is,its the person who is insane and happens or uses the religion as an excuse...

        Remember Turkey,Malaysa...are also Muslim countries,but you do not hear nor see nor does it happen,that people kill or blow themself up or attack others...

            Fadela, Afef, Naima and Yasmine all grew up in North African families in the Mediterranean city of Marseille, and all want a policy of firmness on immigration and welfare reform from France's next president. For centuries Marseille has acted as a melting pot, absorbing waves of immigration from Italy, Armenia, eastern Europe and France's former African colonies that made it the country's most ethnically-mixed city. "Marseille is a land of welcome. People here say they are ˜Marseillais' first, and French second," said Myriam Salah-Eddine, the 35-year-old daughter of Moroccan immigrants and a deputy to the city's mayor.

            But among established North Africans, estimated at around 150,000 people out of a population of 800,000, there are signs that attitudes towards immigration are toughening. Fatima Arazi, a 51-year-old photographer who moved to France from Morocco 30 years ago, runs a tea room and women's association in an immigrant district of central Marseille. Though she belongs to a network campaigning for an amnesty for illegal immigrants already settled in France, Fatima has come to back a radical line on immigration. "North Africans are sick of seeing their countrymen living in misery. There just isn't enough work here," said Fatima, who runs co-development schemes in African villages "to persuade people not to come here in the first place." She says "one big amnesty and then we stop everything".

            For Yasmine Mendy, 21, a catering student who arrived in France from Morocco as a baby, "We need to stop immigration and sort out our own problems first." Algerian-born Fadela Garbi, also 21 and training to become a laboratory technician, agrees there should be "no more immigration at all", admitting that she doesn't "want immigrants pinching my job".
