Kan Ya Ma Kan...

Mostly ma kan.

France is going to the polls today, and I hope Le Pen and the Front National will not do well, although I hear they are above 10% (as D. says any % is bad). Le Pen and ses potes tend to dine out in the spector of Islamofaciscm and Islamoterrorism and have as long as I have been aware of them.

And so I find the following of great interest:
How about the Islamic terrorists then? Considering the perpetual warnings in our daily papers, the findings in the Europol report is, to say the least, surprising. The truth is that Islamists only carried out one out of the 498 terrorist attacks in the European Union in 2006. Don't believe me? The entire report is available on Europol's website. Had Islamic fundamentalists been behind a higher number of attacks-say 136-it would have been front page news at every big daily. One attack is simply too few--it won't do if the image of an "Islamic threat" is to live on.
(emphasis mine)

You can read the rest here .

As they say kan ya ma kan, there was not was- but mostly its la makensh. Not here.
