New Andalusia?

By

A Chirac adviser and Arabist calls for "new Andalusia" in which Muslims and Chrsitians would create a new culture

Of course, he leaves out other groups — like French Jews (France has the largest Jewish popualtion in the world, after Israel and America). Aside from this fact, Andalusia was ruled by Muslims;Christians lived in second—class status as dhimmis. Not a great way to deal with a supremacist ideology, but very, very French.
