In a book she wrote in 1999, called "Le Carré de Pluton" (Pluto's Square), in a section in entitled, Open Letter to My Lost France, Bardot writes: "...my country, France, my homeland, my land is again invaded by an overpopulation of foreigners, especially Muslims." For this comment, a French court fined her 30,000 francs in June 2000. She had previously been fined in 1997 for the original publication of this open letter in Le Figaro and again 1998 for making similar remarks.
In her 2003 book, Un cri dans le silence ("A Scream in the Silence"), she warned of an “Islamicization of France”, and said of Muslim immigration: Over the last twenty years, we have given in to a subterranean, dangerous, and uncontrolled infiltration, which not only resists adjusting to our laws and customs but which will, as the years pass, attempt to impose its own.

Just look at American English, we have words from a myriad of different European languages and even some Native American words found their way into our lexicon. I guess we should send pasta and pizza and Ice Cream back to Italy too, since that culture has so subverted our own
I mean sure we should guard against true subversion but honestly I'm more worried about bigots than those who come to America hoping to have a better life AND maintain their culture on some level that makes them feel at least a bit more comfortable.
Foreigners, just another external enemy they can convince us to be afraid of
Many of the radicals even oppose the use of modern technology, unless it's used for destructive purposes.
Think about me the next time you hear about the UK and the new wave of terror threats it faces from home-grown jihadists.
