.- In an interview with the Alba weekly in Spain, international terrorism expert Maria Angeles MuÃ±oz said âthe fiercely secular state model, the disintegration of the family, and the moral bankruptcy of the Westâ are the causes of the recent violence among Muslims in France, which does not constitute an isolated incident but rather is part of a âholy warâ against the West.
MuÃ±oz called it Europeâs greatest identity crisis. âSimultaneous acts of vandalism in seven French provinces and in various European countries is not just coincidence,â she explained,0 in response to those who claim the incidents were isolated.
She also warned that âcalls for a new jihad are spreading across the internet, and this is no joke. On Muslim forums like tajdeed.net or alsaha.com, radical Muslims denounce âpolice harassmentâ and call for a struggle against âFrance, the land of infidelsâ and âenemy of Muslimsâ.â
According to MuÃ±oz, âfive million non-integrated Muslim immigrants consider the West an enemy. That is a risk and it appears we did not realize it.â
She said the $58 million set aside by the European Commission to address the problem is not enough. âThe solution is not a blank check, and France must reconsider its model of integration. âMulticulturalismâ has become very costly,â she said.
âThe French crisis is at heart Europeâs crisis; the European projectâthe guiding light of civilization, as Schumann said--needs to be recovered. I think that in addition to patching up holes, we need to rethink the societal model and the educational system that we want. And (in Spain) we still have time,â Munoz said.
