We are constantly being told that there are 1.5 billion peace-loving Muslims in the world, and save for a few fringe elements, that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.
But of course, the facts refute that. Aside from the 15,500 Islamic attacks since 911, it cannot escape notice that anywhere Muslims live with non-Muslims there is conflict. The larger the Muslim population in the (non-Muslim) host country, the larger the conflict.
Of course they are generally not fighting anyone in Muslim countries ...... those countries are Muslim, there is no one to fight.
In France, a terrible decision was made by the local prefecture to ban the sausage and wine party from taking place in the Goutte d'Or district, a largely Muslim area. Atlas reader Durotrigan wrote, "This demonstrates not only that there has ceased to be a single society in France, but a single jurisdiction too. As in the UK, it is dangerous to venture into Islamised areas."
A FRENCH minister of Algerian descent on Tuesday condemned plans for a ‘pork sausage and wine’ party in a multi-ethnic Paris district, calling them ‘hateful, racist and xenophobic.’ The event scheduled for Friday in a northern Paris area has been organised by a local resident who said she wanted to make a statement against the ‘Islamisation’ of her neighbourhood…
The junior minister for urban affairs, Fadela Amara, told reporters that that while she ‘enjoys a party,’ she found this one ’scandalous.’ ‘I firmly condemn this type of initiative that is not joyful, but hateful, racist and xenophobic,’ she told reporters in the town of Mantes-La-Jolie outside Paris.
Ms Amara, a former activist in the immigrant-heavy Paris suburbs before she joined President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government in 2007, said the drinks party was supported ‘by groups linked to the far right.’ Paris police were to meet with the event’s organisers on Tuesday to consider their official request for permission to hold the event, which has been announced on the social networking site Facebook.
Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe voiced concern that the drinks party, timed to coincide with the beginning of Friday prayers at the local mosque and just before the England-Algeria World Cub match, could turn violent. ‘Everything has been planned in such a way that there could be some excesses, things could get out of control and there could even be violence,’ said Mr Delanoe.

The event was banned and yet hundreds attended the Paris sausage and wine fest despite the ban:
PARIS -- Several hundred people have attended party serving sausage and wine on a Paris street after the event was banned from a different location.
Organizers had planned on holding the event in a heavily Muslim neighborhood of the French capital. The so-called "Sausage and Booze" gathering was seen as offensive to Muslims, and police banned the event earlier this week.
That didn't stop some 300-400 people from turning out for the party Friday. Some carried French flags.
Instead of the neighborhood originally chosen, it took place on the famed Champs-Elysees avenue near the Arc de Triomphe.
Police officers looked on as revelers tucked in to sausages and drank wine from plastic cups. The event apparently took place without incident.
Alcohol and pork are forbidden by Islam.

It was hoped that some 7,000 people would attend this evening’s anti-Islamisation pork and wine party in Paris which was relocated to the Champs-Elysees Avenue following a ban on it taking place in the Islamised Goutte d’Or district where Muslims have been flouting the law for sometime by blocking the streets with their Friday prayers. The Christian Science Monitor reveals that:The idea to gather at the Arc de Triomphe is described by Identity Block as symbolic, since it was where 2,000 schoolboys defied a Nazi ban on protest and marched against the occupying forces some 70 years ago.Furthermore, today also marked the 70th anniversary of General de Gaulle's appeal to the French people to resist the Nazi occupation following his exile to the United Kingdom. In the end, the Washington Post reports that some 300-400 protesters turned up this evening.A Gaul enjoying a Sausage
Although the numbers are considerably less than what was hoped for, perhaps some of those patriotic French who would have turned up may have put historical animosities aside for the evening in the hope of seeing Algeria trounced by England in the World Cup. Alas, this was not to be, with England managing a dull and lacklustre 0-0 draw.
This apero geant saucisson et pinard event passed off peacefully. Although Sylvie François was the woman who originated the idea and generated a significant following on Facebook, it was also supported by a considerable range of French patriotic and secular groups and bloggers listed below (information taken from Bloc Identitaire website):
