A "Festival of the Cultures of Islam" is now (September 7-17) in full swing in Paris. You're paying for it. Why?
This bit of multiculti showbiz was ginned up by the City of Paris and the U.S. Embassy—which has gone so far as to lend the Stars And Stripes (see right) to the islamopropaganda—along with (what a surprise) Harvard University.
The Institut's website says the Festival has been "organized through a partnership (réalisé en partenariat )between the City of Paris, the United States Embassy in France and Harvard University." Such réalisations always cost you money.

The cynical/ suspicious/ paranoid among us might think that Obama is using the U.S. State Department to facilitate the dominance of his ancestors' religion over Europe—achieving what Muslim invaders over the course of a millennium could not.
