France's Islam problem is proof that karma exists. It was France that helped unleash Khomeini's thugs on the Iranian people in 1979. France sheltered the cleric, allowing him to propagate his message. And France also supports terrorist groups like ISIS in Syria.
France's record of support for radical Islam is long, extensive, and well-documented. So why are we supposed to feel sorry for this trouble-making nation? Fuck em. Let them lose their damn minds over some piece of fabric.

It put him within reach of the international news media and sympathetic (at least in their opposition to the shah) intellectuals, but perhaps more importantly, the phone infrastructure in Europe was far more reliable, enabling him to stay in close touch with contacts in Iran and participate in the groundwork for the post-imperial regime. If he had stayed in southern Iraq, who knows whether he would have had such a profound influence on subsequent events."
