Two weeks ago Muslim apologists attacked French president Macron for saying Islam was “in crisis”. Now in Paris, another assassination:
A man has been “assassinated” in an Islamist terror attack in a Paris suburb “because he was a teacher”, France’s president has said.
The history teacher, who is said to have discussed images of the Prophet Muhammad with his pupils, was beheaded, it has been reported…
According to Le Parisien newspaper, the attacker was an 18-year-old man of Chechen origin, who was carrying a knife.
The blessings of mass Muslim immigration into France.
I’ve seen the post. Disgusting:
It is being reported that the attacker claimed responsibility on Twitter, posting a gory photo of the beheaded teacher.
The suspect also wrote the words: “In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. From Abdullah, the Servant of Allah, To Marcon, the leader of the infidels, I executed one of your hellhounds who dared to belittle Mohammed, calm his fellows before you are inflicted harsh punishment.”
This danger is not new. Last month:
The stabbing of two people in Paris’s rue Nicolas-Appert on Friday brought violence back to the street where, five years ago, Islamist militants killed 12 people in the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Two journalists were wounded in Friday’s attack in what Prime Minister Jean Castex said was a symbolic place, outside Charlie Hebdo’s former offices…
The stabbings coincide with the start of a trial this month of 14 alleged accomplices in the 2015 attack.
Charlie Hebdo marked the trial’s start by reprinting the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad which incensed the Muslim world when most of them were first published by a Danish newspaper in 2005 and then by Charlie Hebdo a year later.
A Pakistani immigrant suspected of stabbing two people outside the former offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris followed a South Asian Islamic sect that in Pakistan has become increasingly emboldened, and on occasion sparked violence, in defending the central figure in Islam from what adherents see as blasphemous insults.
In a video police say they found on the suspect’s phone and that was released on social media after the attack, a man who says he plans to stage an attack on Friday—when the stabbing occurred—appears to cry as he says he will take revenge for the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, which Islam prohibits…
In Pakistan, Arshad Mahmood, the father of the suspect in Friday’s attack, … said his son traveled to France as an immigrant two years ago along with two brothers and received his legal permission to work in the country on the same day as the attack…
“We are proud of our son. Whatever he did is in his love for Prophet Muhammad,” Mr. Mahmood told The Wall Street Journal.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday condemned the fresh publication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed by a French satirical weekly, urging UN efforts against what he called rising Islamophobia.
Addressing the UN General Assembly in a prerecorded message, Khan said that rising global nationalism has “accentuated Islamophobia” and said that Muslims “continue to be targeted with impunity in many countries.”
“Incidents in Europe including republication of blasphemous sketches by Charlie Hebdo are recent examples,” Khan said.
A teenager has sparked a national debate about blasphemy in France after an Instagram post calling Islam a “religion of hate”.
Mila, 16, posted her comments online after receiving homophobic abuse from a Muslim commenter.
She received death threats and has not attended school since…
The post has sparked a huge debate in France over freedom of speech…
Police initially opened two investigations: the first into whether Mila was guilty of hate speech, and the second into her online attackers. They have since dropped the hate speech case as Mila was expressing a personal opinion on religion and not targeting individuals.
Macron took aim at “Islamist separatism” on Friday, unveiling the substance of a long-awaited law designed to regulate the practice of Islam in France.
The law, to be formally presented in December, will primarily crack down on the foreign influences in French Muslim communities, Macron said. It will allow the state to monitor the funding that French mosques receive from abroad, create a certificate program for French imams and ban home schooling for young children to prevent the creation of Islamic schools.
“What we need to fight is Islamist separatism,” Macron said, in a speech delivered in the northwestern Paris suburb of Les Mureaux. “It’s a conscious, theorized, politico-religious project that materializes through repeated deviations from the values of the republic and which often result in the creation of a counter-society.”…
Under fire by the political right for being soft on crime, he called Islam “a religion that is in crisis all over the world” whose problems stemmed from a “very strong hardening” of positions among Muslims.
But some of Marcon’s plan – to promote Islamic culture and teach Arabic in schools – seemed more likely to promote seperatism and a culture clash than to end it:
French schools should give priority to teach the Arabic language and the state will support the promotion of Islamic culture to the tune of €10 million a year, President Emmanuel Macron said on Friday, when announcing his new plan to combat Islamic separatism in French society, daily Le Figaro reports.
“What we have to tackle is Islamist separatism,” which “often results in the constitution of a counter-society,” Macron said in an hour-long speech. “We should not let ourselves be drawn into the trap of amalgamation set by polemicists and extremes which would result in the stigmatization of all Muslims.”
At the educational level, Macron announced a ban on homeschooling starting in 2021…
He also pleaded to “teach more the Arabic language at school” … The state must also “engage and support what should in our country allow the emergence of a better understanding of Islam,” Macron said, announcing the establishment of a “scientific institute of Islam” and additional related positions in higher education…
We will support the initiatives that will be taken by the Foundation for Islam in France in the fields of culture, history and science to the tune of €10 million,” Macron announced.
But even this was too much for Muslim radicals and their sympathisers in the media Left. But the response from Britain’s Muslim Council has not lasted well:
The willingness to use Islam & minority Muslim communities to rally supporters by promoting a divisive culture war against minorities, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, shows more about those who promote such divisiveness than anyone else… https://t.co/qJxShTIleJ— Miqdaad Versi (@miqdaad) October 2, 2020
Nor did this typical response – more concern about supposed “anti-Muslim bigotry” than the very real and very frightening Muslim bigotry:
AFAIK and unless I missed something, not a single word in #Macron's speech on "separatisms" on the rise of ultranationalism and white supremacy in France.— Rim-Sarah Alouane (@RimSarah) October 2, 2020
The Financial Times may need a Brussels correspondent who is not so blind to the Islamic radicalism that has killed so many French people and made opening your mouth lethally dangerous:
French Muslims must be pretty flattered that in a middle of global pandemic and even a European Council, Emmanuel Macron has taken the time out to tell them all how they should stop becoming Islamist separatists.— mehreenkhn (@MehreenKhn) October 2, 2020
