Marine Le Pen and the Front National have among other things Germany's defamation of France to thank for their success, the left-liberal daily To Ethnos comments: "Everything points to Berlin seeing France as a country of the South that is just as much of a problem case as Italy or Spain. Never before has Paris suffered such a humiliation. ... Le Pen's message is therefore clear: we're not talking about European integration but about a German Europe that for the French equates to national humiliation, social pressure and open borders that facilitate illegal immigration. Le Pen's recent success in the polls is a result of Merkel's policies. The only answer to this problematic trend is for the ruling Socialists and the moderate right-wing opposition to isolate Le Pen. However at present this seems impossible."
