France's Intifada?

France's Intifida is the title of a column by Ralph Peters, a military / political writer in the NY Post, a paper that has better columnists than you'd think by looking at the front page headlines.

He actually has sympathy for the rioters, stating that they live in a " concentration camp without walls ". The French, who " cherish their image of America as racist " themselves have " no Colin Powell or Condi Rice ", etc.

You simply cannot underestimate the anger at France here, much stronger than " schadenfreude ". I have not heard of a single person who sympathizes with France, a country that has lived in illusion since at least the end of WWII and now finds itself in a horrid trap of its own making.
