So, the Saudi King’s vacationing at his beach house near Cannes……and many French are furious, as you’ll see in that linked article….. the public beach has to be closed and boats can’t get close to shore and a French policewoman was told to step away from his villa’s security perimeter so that she would not be close to (Muslim) men when they went swimming. Many French (140,000 already have signed a petition) are upset, but not all;
“…..The villa, which King Fahd bought in 1979 is located only three miles from Cannes’ city center. The king and the 1000 people accompanying him spend lavishly.
The economic boon to the area prompted another resident to start a second petition in support of the Saudi king’s vacation, saying that the benefits for local businesses as well as the prestige associated with hosting the royal family warranted having to go to the beach somewhere else for a month.”
You see what this is about, right? It’s like ONE SMALL MICROCOSMIC METAPHOR for Arabs pushing their money around. If he wants a private beach, he should have bought a villa with a private beach, right? But, no….everybody has to go…women without cover, boats, tourists and Cannes’ citizens who use that beach for recreation…..GO!
And MONEY TALKS…and that is how we could lose Western culture to Arab Muslims. MONEY TALKS (and it seems to speak Arabic). And can you really blame the store owners in Cannes? These Arabs spend gazillions of dollars! Of course, they would spend money in Cannes also if they owned a private beach that didn’t infringe on the French and other tourists.
I’m not printing this here to rag on the Arab King…..I’m printing this here to show how one small story echoes a far bigger problem….Macrocosmically (I just invented that word!), THEY WIN! They push their weight around$$$, they make demands$$$, but THEY BUY$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ THEY WIN!
Do you think we can ever fight the BIG BUCKS? Or will they buy themselves a caliphate in this century?
