    OK, enough is enough. It's clear France is no longer in control of its population. It's clear millions within its borders are struggling for freedom and independence. It's clear that these people are not rioting for the sake of rioting, they are responding to oppression from French authorities. It's clear that their uprising cannot be met with state violence, because that would only lead to a cycle of violence. It's clear that these freedom-fighters whom I have dubbed "Paristinians" want a state of their own. It's clear that the international community must force France to the negotiating table with these freedom fighters to begin the peace process that will inevitably lead to the creation of an autonomous, independent state of "Paristine." If it's good enough for Israel, it's good enough for the French surrender monkeys who have been leaders of the global movement to force the Jewish state into appeasement of terrorists. We've got to stop referring to this "intifada" in France as "riots." This is a movement for self-determination. This is a movement for independence. This is a movement for freedom from imperialism. The analogy is apt. That's not "Frre Jacques" they're singing in France. It's "Fire Jacques." The president of France can see the cinder in the eye of others, but is missing the beam in his own. What's good for the goose liver is good for the gander liver. The chicken cordon bleu has come home to roost. It's time for France to stop the hypocrisy. It's time for the French to take a dose of the medicine they have been handing out to the Jews of Israel. It's time to end the apartheid within its population. It's time for France to stop treating those poor, Muslim immigrants as second-class citizens. It's time to accept the only permanent solution that can address the root problem in French society. the recognition of the Paristinians as a legitimate negotiating partner. Enough rubber bullets! Enough police repression! Enough calls for restraint! Enough with the threats! Before this cycle of violence spreads throughout all of Europe, France needs to do the right thing. The French have been speaking out of both sides of their mouths for too long. They've been speaking out of both of their nostrils for too long, If appeasement was the solution in Iraq, it's the solution for the "Paristinian" revolt. If appeasement was the solution for Hitler, it's the solution for the "Paristinian" revolt. If appeasement was the solution for Israel in dealing with its "Palestinian" problem, it's the solution for France's "Paristinian" uprising. If France has these kinds of systemic problems with its Muslim population, then it is time to partition France. It's time for an independent Muslim state to be created. After all, isn't that what France and other European nations have determined is the proper solution for Israel? These are not just riots. This is an intifada . just like the one begun in 2000 within and around Israel. France and other countries, including the United States, have demanded that Israel meet those attacks with land concessions to the rioters and suicide bombers. That is the only viable, long-term solution, they say. They claim this violence will never cease until those oppressed by Israel are granted an independent, autonomous state of their own. Why should the solution be any different in France? Stop the violence! Now. not at a snail's pace. The time has come to begin talks with the "Paristinians" about their own future homeland of Paristine
