A Muslim-run France? Novel sparks Islamophobia row
by Tony Todd
France's most notorious and internationally best-known novelist Michel Houellebecq insisted Saturday that his new book "Submission", which envisions a future France ruled by a Muslim government, is not a far-right racist scare story.
"Submission", which is released in French on Wednesday, has been the subject of intense debate in recent weeks, particularly for its portrayal of Islam.
In 2001 Houellebeck described Islam as "the stupidest of all religions", a position he has since vocally distanced himself from.
