Bardot has written what the prescient and indomitable scholar Bat Ye’or has written in her 2005 book Eurabia. The Euro-Arab Axis and in her 2011 book Europe, Globalization, And the Coming Universal Caliphate.
Islam is not a race. Muslims exist in all colors of the rainbow. Islam is a religion—one that has historically refused to separate religion or Sharia law from the state. In the name of Islam, and following Mohammed’s example, Muslims have engaged in imperialism, colonialism, conversion via the sword, gender and religious apartheid, genocide, and slavery. Today, groups such as ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, Hezbollah—and countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan—are practicing Islam as a form of totalitarian barbarism.
Not all Muslims are terrorists—many are anti-Islamists—but many terrorists today are Muslims who claim to be acting in the name of Islam. What is tricky is that non-Caucasian Muslims have experienced racism at the hands of European Caucasians, thus complicating the tragic tangle of racism per se versus the West’s belated response to the problem of radical Islamic supremacism, misogyny, infidel-hatred, and righteously hostile, parallel societies within the West.
Just as an increasing number of Muslims in France want to keep their traditions– including child marriage, FGM, face-veiling, polygamy, stoning for adultery and for homosexuality—so too does Bardot wish to keep European Enlightenment traditions (the separation of religion and state, individual rights, the right to speak freely).
