How a nation can be its own worst enemy sometimes

Interesting article at MSN.com on moderate Islam in France.  Most interesting is the “Key dates for France’s history with Islam,” a timeline, which includes this important fact.

1950s and 1960sFrance brings in many new immigrants in an attempt to ease a labor shortage after World War II. Many of the imported workers come from France's heavily Muslim former colonies.

Gosh.  Maybe we really should have a guest worker program here in the U. S.  It’s worked so well in France.
