No, not on Lampedusa. From Mayotte. But Mayotte may soon turn into a French Lampedusa. Mayotte is an island in the Indian Ocean, off the eastern coast of Africa, which today officially became part of France. It has a population of 200,000 Muslims, and its legal system and culture incorporates a kind of soft sharia that tolerates such things as polygamy and girls getting married at 15.

The inhabitants, only around half of whom can speak French, voted overwhelmingly in a referendum to incorporate with France. Sarkozy promised tomake it happen. The French people themselves were not consulted. Mayotte has several other countries within boat range with large numbers of dirt-poor Muslims. You can be sure many will be heading there soon. Indeed, there are already around 60,000 illegal immigrants there, compared with an indigenous population of 200,000. In addition, the fact that there is no proper register of births, deaths or property transfers will make it very easy for illegal immigrants to advance false claims to citizenship. Pregnant Muslim women from the nearby Comoros islands already come to Mayotte to give birth, meaning their children are considered French and therefore cannot be expelled.

Although the video is from two years ago when the referendum on integrating with France was held, it still gives a flavour of the place. Unsurprisingly, 95% of these third worlders voted to integrate with France. And the French and EU taxpayers will now be picking up the tab.

Hat-tips to François Desouche and Valeurs Actuelles.
