French MP accosted by Muslim screaming: “You’ve got no place here. This is Arab land. This land belongs to Muslims. It’s not French soil. You are racists, Zionists. Get out!”

While doing an election campaign walkabout in Sartrouville (in the outskirts of Paris) accompanied by the area’s deputy mayor, Jacques Myard, a member of the French parliament who represents the mainstream conservative UMP, was aggressively accosted by a djellaba (Moroccan male burqa)-wearing Muslim on a scooter.

Islam vs Europe  The MP attempted to continue walking around, talking to the local people and shaking their hands. As he did, the Muslim addressed them:

“Don’t shake his hand. He votes for laws against the Arabs. If you shake his hand, I’ll come and burn you.


After attempting to establish a dialogue, but in vain, we continued to distribute our campaign newsletter, this individual continuing to insult, to vilify us and to threaten the shopkeepers who were making us welcome. He also insulted Moïse, who is of African origin, calling him a slave.

At no time did we respond to his provocations, although he would have liked nothing better than a confrontation. But clearly there can be no question of giving in when confronted by a person like this. At 12 o’ clock, after having distributed more than a hundred newsletters, we let followed by this person who was continuing to shout. 

It goes without saying that we cannot let pass these remarks forming part of the radical islamist communitarian tendencies which are unacceptable on our national territory!

As a consequence, we filed a complaint; thanks to the information supplied to the police, the person was arrested the same evening. We formally identified him the next day. 

The state prosecutor presented the case immediately before the court. The defence lawyer requested a deferral of the trial until 15 June, which was granted by the court, but he was incarcerated.
