In France, Arabic is the Language of Love

No hard data, just correlations, but check out these two tables from Mark Steyn concerning the rising fertility rate in France and why it does not disprove his book America Alone.

Take France and its neighbors and rank them in order of healthiest fertility rates (2005 official Eurostat figures):

1) France
2) Netherlands
3) Belgium
4) Switzerland
5) Austria
6) Germany
7) Italy
8 ) Spain

Now rank them in order of highest proportion of Muslims (no central source, but compiled from national data, European Muslim groups, UN and State Dept figures):

1) France
2) Netherlands
3) Belgium
4) Switzerland
5) Austria
6) Germany
7) Italy
8 ) Spain

Hmm. (source)

Not a ringing endorsement of French fertility, or of the French libido for that matter.

Maybe they need to look at American inspiration.
