Dick Morris: France Needs to Assimilate Muslim Population

By    |   Wednesday, 07 January 2015 04:04 PM

The attack in Paris on Wednesday should serve as a lesson for the French that they need to assimilate the Muslim population living in their communities instead of letting them live separately, says veteran political analyst Dick Morris.

"It's very important that we understand that the French Muslims are very different from the American Muslims," Morris told J.D. Hayworth and John Bachman on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

"In the United States, they're largely assimilated, they largely live among us. There may be concentration around a particular mosque, but largely they're constantly intermingling with us, and with 'us' meaning non-Muslims," he explained.

By contrast, "in Paris, for example, you have a ring around the city of Islamic suburbs where the French police dare not go," he said.

"There really are no municipal services there. The courts don't work there, the Islamic courts patrol. Shariah law really governs," he added.

Morris explained that the reason for this is that "there's been no real effort to assimilate them."

"The hallmark [in France] has been diversity of having all different groups living side-by-side, but not a melting pot, and increasingly, the Europeans are realizing they need to have a melting pot," he said.

"What the French need to do is to end these no-go areas around Paris and really integrate them into society," he said.

The veteran political analyst said such attacks could lead to European countries' defecting from the European Union because they aren't able to protect their own borders, as well as increase opposition to moving Turkey beyond its associate-member status in the EU.

"This will strengthen the increasing restiveness within the European public against unlimited immigration from Turkey, because Turkey is a member of NATO and it's easy to get in from Turkey and it's easy to get into Turkey from Iran and other countries," he  said.

Turkey provides a "constant flow of immigrants, and once they're in the European Union they can go anywhere in the European Union without even passing any frontiers," he added.

This problem, Morris said, is the "impetus among the British to withdraw from the European Union by the United Kingdom Independent Party, UKIP, that won 17 percent of the vote in the last election."

"It's a very strong one, and it will find an echo in France, particularly as a result of this incident," he added.
