France: The Looming Battle over Muslim Integration
Gatestone Institute ^ | December 31, 2013 | Soeren Kern

Posted on 01/01/2014 7:40:38 PM PST by george76

Among the long list of recommendations...the panel says that public schools in France should be taught in Arabic and African languages rather than in French.

"It would no longer be up to French immigrants to adopt French culture, but for France to abandon its own culture, language, history and identity to adapt to other people's cultures." — Jean-François Copé, UMP Party.

Instead of integration, "parallel societies are forming that continuously distance themselves from each other." — Alain Finkielkraut, author of L'identité malheureuse.

A panel appointed by French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault to review France's integration policies has urged the government to implement a "new form of secularism" that would raise the profile of Islam in public life—in order to improve the integration of Muslim immigrants. Among a long list of recommendations aimed at "recognizing the richness of multiple identities," the panel says that public schools in France should begin allowing Muslim pupils to wear headscarves in class (clothing that has been outlawed since 2004), and that courses should be taught in Arabic and African languages rather than in French.

The panel also recommends a number of other multicultural changes that would provide greater recognition to the "Arab-oriental dimension" of France's national identity. These include changing street and place names, overhauling the history curriculum taught in schools and creating a special day to honor the contribution of immigrant cultures.

More notably, the panel says that authorities and the media should be prohibited from referring to people's nationality, religion or ethnicity in public, and that the government should create a new law that would make "racial harassment" a punishable offense.

If you go to a country to live you shuld learn that countries language.

In America we should immediately stop printing government form in any language other than English, and stop asking me for English press 1.

The keen desire to die.

I don’t believe that the French want to abandon their national culture — there is something else behind this destructive movement.

But then again, this trend towards islamization also seems to be widespread in the USA.

He’s talking about the seculars and Christians.

The idiocy of this statement is staggering. Let’s be more “secular” by embracing a death cult.

Last week, I watched THE BATTLE FOR ALGIERS in which islamics try to drive the French out of Algeria.

I expect to see THE BATTLE FOR FRANCE soon in which the French try to drive the islamic invader out.

But then I’m not looking to see the islamics thrown out, after all, they will be fighting FRENCH!

***should be taught in Arabic***

At least the King of Spain expelled the moslems again around 1611 and forbade the use of Arabic in language and writing.

From the article: “More notably, the panel says that authorities and the media should be prohibited from referring to people’s nationality, religion or ethnicity in public, and that the government should create a new law that would make “racial harassment” a punishable offense.”

More accommodation of the abomination that is islam.

I suspect Saudi money funding secret political accounts buys a whole lot of idiocy. The communists use to say the capitalists would sell them the rope to hang them (capitalists). Well, the politicians will succumb to Muslim proselytization through payoffs.

This promotion of balkanization is of course is an attempt to create a power vacuum, one that will allow a conqueror to come in and fill that vacuum.

The French are weird. They can surrender in an outside war at the drop of a hat, but mess with their culture and they will exterminate you.

Stop stealing from (taxing) the producers, and stop the payoffs (benefits) to the parasites. Nature could then solve the problem in one winter.

I think a significant percentage of the French public - perhaps a clear majority - would be appalled by these recommendations. In the next twenty years, I expect either massive emigration of French nationals, or civil war.

Toss em out! The day will come when France will be illuminated with burning mosques—and trains filled with muslims being sent to the camps. It has happened before to other groups The Roma? The Jews? the Albegensians? Knights Templars?

Before Mr. Muslim goads Mr. Frog once too much, he might be well advised to read up on “Massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy “.

Mr. Frog occasionally gets a bit froggy.\

Just hintin’.

All this so that the current Government can have as much ultimate power
as they can get without any consideration for the next century.

Screw you France. You're burnt toast!

I don’t think so. The French have great pride in their culture, believing they have the best wine, food, language, art etc. This is a wakeup call.

From Vlad...The Putin on Russia:

"In Russia live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia , to work and eat in Russia , should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law. Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia , and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We had better learn from the suicides of America , England , Holland and France , if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians..."

I would like to see a French politician or statesman make a similar public proclamation - Hell, I'd like to see an American politician or "statesman" make the same remark.
I think that most on here are greatly underestimating the French state security apparatus. They are very good at accomplishing their given mission. However, like most state groups, they are subject to the whims and restrictions enacted by the various political players who get involved.
Until, and unless, these political players are on the same side as them, their missions will be subject to petty interference and pc castration.

The French government seems bound and determined to dissipate, dispossess, and replace the native French people. Same thing is happening in Britain to the British people. And to the European peoples that built the United States. In fact it is happening in every Western nation.

Who hates the Christian European peoples so much and has such tremendous influence in every single one of those countries?

Ah, yes, Osama Bin Laden spoke often, with little sighs of wistfulness, about "the tragedy of al-Andalus". (The Moorish loss of Spain. They all want Spain back. The Spanish have a different idea. Stay tuned for film at eleven.)

Time for another Charles Martel to rise up.
