    France’s New Burqa-Friendly Government

    May 21st, 2012 by Daniel Greenfield

    Francois Hollande may be the first Muslim-elected president of France. With an estimated 93 percent of Muslim voters casting their ballots for Hollande, in a close election, their numbers may have made the difference between victory and defeat. The makeup of France’s new government reflects the debt that Hollande owes to his Muslim voters.

    Hollande had said during the campaign that he would uphold the law on the burqa ban, with the caveat that he would apply it in the best ways possible—a statement which leaves plenty of wriggle room for minimizing enforcement. And his appointment of Christiane Taubira as Justice Minister suggests that soon enough Mademoiselle Liberty will don the burqa.

    Taubira, a Guyanese radical leftist, who despite being appointed Justice Minister has no law degree, voted against the law banning hijabs in schools– one of only a handful of members of the National Assembly to do so. She did not cast a vote at all on the 2010 Burqa ban, but this year she signed on to an MTE petition on behalf of “veiled mothers” which denounced the “endless series of offenses” against Muslims, a list which included the “anti-headscarf law” and “anti-niqab legislation”.

    Francois Hollande: the first Muslim president of France

    Thursday, May 17, 2012
    By Martin Barillas

    According to the French website, La Vie, the final tally for the poll showed that Hollande won by only 1.13 million votes. Since an estimated 2 million Muslims voted, the Socialist obviously owes that community a great favor. Photographs found at the French website ‘Observatoire de l’Islamisation’ shows Muslims waving the flags of their native countries and jubilant over the defeat of Sarkozy.


    Hollande’s victory can be attributed to the growing good relations between elements of the Socialist Party and other leftist groupings with the Muslim community, even with those segments associated with the notorious Muslim brotherhood. That warming trend has come at a cost to French taxpayers: in 2009, Jean-Marc Ayrault – who represents the Socialist Party in the National Assembly for the city of Nantes – voted in favor of subsidizing a cultural center and mosque in the city in the amount of 200,000 euros. Other cities subsidizing Muslim cultural centers and mosques include Clichy, Créteil, Poitiers, Nantes, Lille, Les Ulis, Roissy-en-Brie, Saint-Etienne in Metz, Rochefort, Angouleme, and La Rochelle. In some cases, land was donated by local government for the purpose of building these cultural centres and mosques.

    The Islamic Association of Western France financed the construction of the mosque and cultural center at Nantes in the amount of 4.4 million euros, while the city government kicked in 200,000 euros. So far, the Muslim community has raised 1.5 million euros to pay for the main structure but more donations are expected to flow. Featured at the laying of the cornerstone were Tariq Ramadan, a controversial academic and defender of Iran, as well as the mayor of Nantes, Pascal Bolo.

    I'm wondering why someone who has never been to France, does not speak French and knows very few French people who think they know enough to post on this topic?

    Anti-Jewish attacks in France reach epidemic proportions

    June 4, 2012 By Leo Rennert

    Last Saturday, 10 men wielding iron rods and hammers attacked three young Jews wearing skullcaps in a town near Lyon, sending two of the victims to the hospital, one with head injuries and the other with neck wounds. The attackers are said to be a gang of North African Muslims, who punctuated their vicious assaults with cries of "dirty Jews."

    Last March 19, a Muslim radical, Mohammed Merah, killed three children and a rabbi at a Jewish school in Toulouse.

    Bad as these brutal attacks against Jews are, they are but the tip of what has become an all-too evident pattern of ever more frequent attacks against Jews in France. And not too put too fine a point on them, many of these attacks are perpetrated by Muslim hoodlums.

    According to a report issued Monday by the French Jewish community protection service, the March massacre in Toulouse "triggered an explosion" of anti-Semitic attacks. In the 10 days following the deadly massacre, there were no fewer than 90 anti-Semitic incidents.

    Data compiled by the French Interior Ministry show that there were 148 anti-Semitic incidents in March and April, including 43 classified as violent -- a huge jump over the 14 violent attacks recorded in the same period last year.

    Why does any of this matter? All of that can be true, and you can still closely follow French politics and news.

    Can you really?

    And how many experts on US politiics do you know who have never been to America?

    What AJ is posting here is just gossip and hearsay - which is why I see little point in addressing them.

    Now I'm certainly not an expert, but I've got a pretty decent knowledge of UK politics despite never having been there and follow it pretty closely.
