France Submits to Islam (Poll: 70% of the French... expect that France will submit to Islam)
Gatestone Institute ^ | May 12, 2014 | Guy MilliŤre

Posted on 05/12/2014 8:21:32 PM PDT by NYer

Polls show that more than 70% of the French... expect that France will become a country under submission to Islam.

Last month, between April 18-21, the Union of Islamic Organizations of France [UOIF], the French branch of the European Council for Fatwa and Research (presided over by Yusuf al Qaradawi) held its thirty-first annual conference in Le Bourget, north of Paris. As usual, jihadist and anti-Semitic books, which are banned in French bookstores but tolerated there, were offered in several booths.

As usual also, speakers were invited to deliver fiery speeches. In 2012, the keynote speaker was supposed to be Qaradawi himself, but faced with protests from the Jewish community, France denied Qaradawi a visa to enter French territory, and he was replaced by Tariq Ramadan, a Muslim Brotherhood operative who works with Qaradawi in Doha, Qatar, at the Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics.

Tariq Ramadan was again the keynote speaker in 2013. This year, Tariq gave way to his brother, Hani, Director of the Islamic Center of Geneva, founded in 1961 by their father, Said Ramadan, son-in-law and senior disciple of Hassan al Banna, who founded the Muslim Brotherhood.

If Tariq Ramadan knows how to hide his extremism, his brother is more explicit and direct. His speech was devoted to "global threats" facing Islam; he described them as having a single source: "the Jews and Zionist barbarism," an octopus "hiding in the shadows," a "power that holds the global finance and the media." He called on young French Muslims to "fight for Islam" and to go to Syria, where several hundred French youths have already joined jihadist groups.

Hani Ramadan, Director of the Islamic Center of Geneva, identified "the Jews and Zionist barbarism" as the source of threats facing Islam, during his keynote speech at this year's conference of the Union of Islamic Organizations of France. (Image source: Screenshot of video by Mosquée Al Imane de Lille)

If UOIF had only a marginal influence, such statements would be already worrying. But UOIF is the leading French Muslim organization, and Hani Ramadan's speech, like Tariq Ramadan's speeches in 2012 and 2013, was listened to by an audience of 150,000 enthusiastic people, and viewed by hundred of thousands of others on UOIF-TV, the digital television channel established by the UOIF.

More than 8,000,000 Muslims live in France, most of whom are French citizens, and the Muslim population in France continues to grow. France is now the main Muslim country in Europe. Successive French governments can decide to expel a Muslim preacher or a recruiter of jihadist fighters; they can deny visas, but they seem unable to do more.

Although the French government denies it, it seems clear that substantial ransoms were paid to Islamist groups for the release of French hostages: $28,000,000 to al Qaeda in Niger in October 2013 and $18,000,000 to Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant in Syria, on April 19.

The creation, on April 25, by French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, of a counseling center, website and telephone hotline to "advise" parents whose children are in the process of radicalization seems almost ridiculous. Entire neighborhoods are controlled by Islamist preachers and Bernard Cazeneuve knows it: officially, administrative authorities call these neighborhoods "Sensitive Urban Zones," presumably because at any time they can explode. Unofficially, the police call them "Sharia Zones", and have been ordered by the Department of the Interior to keep out.

Political leaders of all parties know that most elections cannot be won if the Muslim vote is neglected, and the leaders of the National Front are no exception: Marine Le Pen has long ceased to incriminate Islam and now attacks "crime" and "immigration" without providing details. Sometimes she may denounce "calls to jihad" and "fundamentalism", but takes care not to go beyond that. Although she criticizes Qatar or Saudi Arabia, she says that France should become an "ally" of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and asks her "fellow Muslims" to join her fight against "American globalism and its Islamist allies".

A "Collective Against Islamophobia in France" is gaining ground: it handles complaints against any critical remarks about Islam, and it can rely on the courts to punish offenders. A "League of Judicial Defense of Muslims" was also created in 2013 by Karim Achoui, a lawyer disbarred because of his links with organized crime. No anti-racist organization dares denounce Muslim anti-Semitism, and none of them criticizes speeches such as the one given by Hani Ramadan in Le Bourget.

Jewish institutions do not denounce Muslim anti-Semitism, either: they speak of an "unhealthy climate". When, on April 28, during a tribute ceremony to the Jews deported from France to Auschwitz, Arno Klarsfeld, a member of the Council of State and son of Nazi hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld, said that "some of the suburban youth are anti-Semitic," he was immediately summoned to appear before a judge.

NGOs fighting the Islamization of France are now marginalized. Their leaders are persecuted by the justice system and severely punished. The mainstream media demonize them. The main one, Riposte Laique, organized a demonstration on March 9. About four hundred people came. Three or four years ago, Riposte Laique could gather several thousand people.

The anti-Semitic and pro-Islamic standup comedian Dieudonné continues to give performances to packed theaters. On June 21, he will host a ceremony to honor people who posed with the best "quenelles" -- the inverted Nazi salute he invented. More than ten thousand tickets have already been sold. On his website, Dieudosphere.com, pictures of "quenelles" are still present. Dieudosphere.com sells a comic book called Yacht People. The cover shows a fat rich man with a hooked nose rubbing his hands together and flashing a greedy smile. The resemblance to the caricatures of Jews published during the Nazi era is evident. Manuel Valls fought Dieudonné when he was Interior minister. Since he became Prime Minister, fighting Dieudonné is no longer one of his priorities.

During an interview with Alexandre Arcady, the director of Twenty Four Days, a film about the assassination seven years ago of Ilan Halimi, a young French Jew who was taken hostage and killed by young Muslims from Paris suburbs, TV journalist Aymeric Caron tried to explain that the growth of anti-Jewish hatred in France was logical because "Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian children." These remarks did not offend anyone except a few Jewish journalists, so they were cut from the edited version of the show. Aymeric Caron explained that he was not an anti-Semite, but only "anti-Zionist." He has recently published a book called, Incorrect: in which almost all his targets have one thing in common: They are Jews. He is invited onto many talk shows to speak about his book. Whoever looks for books about Israel will easily find books called Israel, the New Apartheid or The Invention of the Land of Israel, by Shlomo Sand. Books offering less-biased viewpoints are unavailable. Dozens of books by Tariq Ramadan are on the shelves of all main bookstores.

The number of Jews leaving France is steadily increasing. French people who have the financial means also leave the country. Most others expect the worst. Polls show that the French are now the most pessimistic people in Europe. They also show that more than 70% of the French are afraid of the rise of Islam in France: they expect that France will become a country under submission to Islam.

The same Europe that institutes anti-burka laws? Take note of the countries that are doing that, while going after people like Geert Wilders at the same time. All a “beneficial crisis”, as the Euro-elites like to call it.

Why don't the French organize and fight this Jihadi infiltration? They stopped the Muslim hordes before.

We're going to have to do the same. . The sooner the better.

As if that article isn't grim enough, consider that France possesses a relatively modern military infrastructure and a nuclear arsenal. Possibly including neutron bombs.

If events continue on the current trajectory, we'll soon be playing out the back-story of Planet of the Apes.

Numerous web sites are reporting that a justice of the peace in Messina, Italy has ordered three girls to pay a criminal fine amounting to more than $3,500 each for having worn a bikini to a private beach. The offensive behavior occurred in the well-known tourist resort of Taormina, frequented by Saudi Muslim families on holiday.

If you have contempt for these defenseless girls, think what you would have done if you had been confronted with their situation.

And what is happening in Europe could happen here too.

Notice how many of our politicians and the MSM are slobbering all over these bearded barbarians.

Most politicians don’t like to recognize it, but sooner or later there will be a war between Muslims and non-Muslims. (I hesitate to use the word “Christian”, but I guess that is what I mean)

My thoughts exactly. The only Martel left will be Mohammed Martel. Jihad of the womb. Demographics and an uncompromising, borderless totalitarian mind-charter trump just about every collective/country/iunion/ideology. So sad for France.

“Polls show that the French are now the most pessimistic people in Europe. They also show that more than 70% of the French . . . expect that France will become a country under submission to Islam.”

On one hand this is thoroughly depressing. The idea that the Cathedrale de la Sainte-Trinite de Paris will be fitted with minarets just sucks.

On the other hand it foreshadows a likelihood where Rachael Maddow, Melissa Harris-Perry and Chris Hayes are forced to wear burkas and wash the stinky feet of hairy imams every Friday before evening prayers.

The French are nonchalant. "If the moslems want to take over, why should we not let them? They are not real Frenchmen after all, and we will just go on as we always have, until they go away." "Let them have their silly prayers, we will have our wine and Gauloises and watch them from our sidewalk cafes."

This is SO SICK! I have great difficulty coming to terms with this. Such a wonderfully great nation, that has contributed so much to western civilization, and especially the USA when it was so critically important in our earliest years, does not deserve to be stricken by the cancer that is islam, the predominant proponent of chaos and the destroyer of civilization and progress.

You are absolutely right- France WAS one of the most Catholic of any nation through at least the early twentieth century. As well as one of the most advanced nations. The early French settlers in the US were among the most literate and educated.

Crusades?

Yes. France is getting overrun. They're inside the wire and are going to kill us all unless we fight back. And soon.

Our Muslim Brotherhood President want the same thing to happen here.

I say we need to start fighting this Islamic infiltration in a serious way and stop this PC crap about Islam being a "religion of peace." It is not a religion. It is socio-political cult whose sole purpose is total control of the individual. How many Muslims are wishing they could "get out" of their 'religion'? I bet it's in the millions. They are all brainwashed and scared to death.

Meanwhile, we have more years of this:

Obama installed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and thank God the Egyptians rebelled and overthrew them.

I hope we survive. I think it's time for the Christians and Jews of the world to Prepare for War with Islam. Enough of the torture, slaughter, kidnappings, rape and murder. What will it take? Three hundred Christian high school girls kidnapped in Paris? In New York? It's time to fight back! Geert Wilders is right!

Pray for America and Prepare!

If you think this is not a serious matter, then you are delusional.

None of this happens without the consent of the Powers That Be. The questions are:
How does the spread of islam benefit those who are financing Agenda 21 and the global feudalist order?
What qualities of Christianity are inimical to this new feudalist order?
What liberties, checks and balances, etc., are inimical to this nwo?
If islam, homosexuality, promiscuity, abortion, poverty for all, and bloodshed are useful to those promoting Agenda 21, then who do they ultimately serve?
'Cause it's not God.
