Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good comments from both of you, I only add a few things.

Deep down, the ordinary Frenchman doesn't believe that Turks, or Eastern Europeans for that matter, cherish the values he holds most dear.

Wellthankyou. The article was full of nationalistic elements and sweeping generalisations (the latter ironically reminding me of Thomas "FlatEarther" Friedman's taxi driver stories), but this projection made my day.

I looked up who the author is. Claire Berlinski is a soft version of Ann Coulter: a conservative American who also lived in Britain, France and East Asia, and who has written to the Weekly Standard (the neocon flagship), and the National Review (until recently paleocon hard-right), plus Manager Magazine.

In short, no surprise at all...
