The French Foreign Legion are second to none in fighting the Arabs.

BTW, I am looking for a dealer/salesman in Mali with interest in heavy duty plastic body bags.

In terms of savagery and cruaulty, you mean?

I don't think they would get away now with what they did in Algeria more than 50 years ago...

They were the masters in torture and summary executions then.

Algeria became a civilised country thanks to France. It was a nation of savages before the French came, well was it even a nation? Ever since the French left, Algeria's economy and infrastructure have be in ruins. Algerians committed atrocities, they massacred innocent women and children and the French response was swift.

Algeria not civilised before the French? Don't make me laugh...

It's the Moors from North Africa who invaded Spain and occupied it for 6 centuries, building towns, castles, palaces, creating trade routes, roads, etc...
Many cities in Spain were created by the Moors. The first illuminated town at night was built by the Moors.
Later, the Moors dominated navigation of the Mediteranea.

The French left Algeria's economy in ruins when they left. Since WWII, they stopped investing and extracted more wealth from Algeria (oil) without leaving anything to the country.

Atrocities were committed by BOTH sides. To obtain the independence of their country, Algerians patriots had to fight not only a superiorly armed colonial army, but also some collaborators who were punished for their deeds.

muzzies are such nice people. They made such a wonderful place of Iberia. muzzies are builders. Name one thing muzzies ever damaged or destroyed. buildings, buses, Daniel Pearl, airplanes, athletes, Leon Klingerhoff, schools, airports, people, USS Cole, muzzies are such humanitarians. Look at the number of muzzie ships and relief efforts when the tsunami hit Bandar Aceh. Watch someone write about my lies. most do not know sarcasm from the truth. as far as that goes, some wouldn't know the truth if the truth flew over their head and crapped on 'em. Ahmadinejad, Izbetgovic, Assad, ibn Saud, Jinnah, such humanitarians. yuck, yuck.

The truth is, you western Christians stick your white dicks too often into Musilim's (and non-Muslims) affairs.
Leave them to sort out their own mess, it really is none of your damn business!

You pang are a teetotal idiot to believe we will let your muslim trash do whatever they want. roll over rover, let the muzzie trash split you open. When you trash attack us, you will get attacked. If it was left to me, i would destroy every muslim country including your trash malaysia. i would destroy every trash muslim country beginning with morocco and spread east ending in trash indonesia. you sneaking lowdown cowardly cobras in the grass, you deserve death, you trash who cuts off heads of your own women, you child molestors, deserve to have the layers of skin melt off you demons.

Seems that you listen to your wife without too much questionning here... Moorish Spain was a golden era but Algeria's recent past is nothing so glorious. Murderous feuds were rife between Algerians during the independance war, and still afterwards. The 90s civil also served to settle score from that period. To this day Algerians have not solved their identity problem, and it seems to run deep. Other nort Africans are who they are without fuss, while most Algerians embark on lengthy discourses on the subject at the earliest available opoprtunity

while the moors were raping and pillaging Iberia, Celtic monks were building and teaching not only in Bretania but also on the mainland, teaching and spreading knowledge throughout northern Europe. if one actually studies iberia during the time of moorish subjugation, you will find most of the learned ones of that period were Jews. Rambam, for one. Celts in northern Europe, Jews in Iberia. Really, how much does one have to know to lay the head of a female on a chop block? that's all muzzies are good at. Oh, they are also good at blowing up school buildings with children in them. That don't take a whole lot of larning. beslan.

Sir: In the grand scheme of things, and over the centuries, actually more people have died at the hands of so-called Christians and Westerners rather than "muzzies". It is merely the sensationalism generated by Western media in this day and age that one gets instant breaking-news on the wrongdoings of muzzies...but that does not whitewash a veritable catalog of crimes against humanity committed by Westerners over the centuries.

I see, like all muslims, that you live in the past. Yes christians were brutal in the past, centuries ago, but thats just it, that was the past. This is today, you know, the here and now. And as today goes, islam is an evil on the earth, a cancer, set on destruction and sorrow. It is a relegion that is to take all hope and dreams from the people of earth. It is a relegion dead sit on takeing earth back to the dark ages. It is evil, no good, and like a cancer it should be cut from the face of the planet, until then, we will continue to see more and more of their twisted idealology.

The Algerian war was conducted by several factions fighting each other. That's a common phenomenon in independence wars, since various sides see their goal approaching and the chance to seize power getting nearer.
Algeria was no different. Beside, Algerians were also divided between those accepting French rule and those rejecting it.

I don't think Algerians have an identity problem; it's just that outsiders have often a critical opinion of the country (mostly the French), and that reflects on the individuals.
