A Snapshot Of World News
Just now, at the website of lefigaro.fr:
Seven stories here. One is about the horse-meat scandal in the EU), another about a victory on the slopes for an American skier.
Aside from the European meat, and the American feat, everything listed has to do with Islam, the World or Camp of Islam, and its violence, its aggression, its everything. .
There's Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, Tunisia, Bangladesh. It could also have been -- and will be tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow -- stories about Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq. Or about Algeria, Mali, Nigeria, Kuwait, and Morocco.
And it's just a small snapshot.
But from that snapshot you get -- ex ungue leonem -- the Big Picture.
