The French suffer from an acute sense of inferiority complex. Unable to cope with this daunting reality, they are scapegoating Muslims by accusing them of "separatism". Perhaps, Muslims should opt for it.
Israel’s campaign of ethnic cleansing in East Jerusalem continues in high gear. Palestinians are being evicted from their homes that illegal Zionist settlers promptly occupy. Like the illegal regime, its court system is also completely biased against the Palestinians.
