The French Muslim Council urged the government to ban an upcoming and popular patriot group, ‘Generation Identitaire,’ that occupied a mosque on Saturday and issued a ‘declaration of war’ on the Islamization of France. Not to be outdone, pro-Muslim leftists called on French authorities to take action against such groups that promote hatred and seek to divide the country.
(If that’s what they want, they should be taking action against the Muslim invaders)
WEBSITE (French): Generation Identitaire
REUTERS Some 73 protesters from a movement called Identity Group seized a mosque in the western city of Poitiers on Saturday and unfurled a banner referring to Charles Martel’s historic defeat of advancing Muslim troops there in 732. They stayed for more than six hours before police ejected them.
In a video posted on its website, the movement issued what it called a “declaration of war” on multiculturalism. It also called for a referendum to block further immigration from outside Europe and further construction of mosques in France.
“We demand the dissolution of this group,” Moussaoui said. The public prosecutor’s office in Poitiers has placed four of the protesters under judicial investigation for spreading racial hate and discrimination. Moussaoui said the protest, the first time a mosque in France had been occupied like that, represented “a new escalation in violence against Muslims”.
Anti-racism organisations in France are demanding the government launch a swift crackdown against right wing patriot groups, following the storming of a mosque in the west of the country.
France24 In strongly worded statements released on Sunday, two of France’s most high-profile racism (What race is Islam?) watchdogs and a Muslim organization asked the government to ban
extremist anti-Islamization groups, close their websites and prosecute individuals for inciting racial hatred. (What race is Islam again?)
The dawn raid was intended as a protest against what the resistance group regards as Islam’s growing influence in France.
“What they did was scandalous. They basically declared war against Muslims in France,” (HALLELUJAH!) Bernadette Hetier, co-president of MRAP, told FRANCE 24. “These groups are dangerous because they promote hatred. We have asked the government to prevent them publishing their intolerable propaganda.” They are a real threat to cohesion because they want to divide France and Europe.
The protesters stormed the mosque at around 6am, climbed onto the roof and unfurled a banner daubed with the symbolic phrase “732 Generation Identity” – a reference to the year 732, when Charles Martel halted the advance of the invading Muslim army to the north of Poitiers. The group have also made their views clear on their website, which bears the statement: “We do not want more immigration from outside Europe or new mosque construction on French soil”.
French media and politicians keep talking about a supposed “provocation” by Génération Identitaire.
Islam vs Europe At this stage, it seems useful to us to make clear that for us:
- The true provocation is to let more than 300,000 immigrants into France every year.
- The true provocation is the daily anti-white racism in our country.
- The true provocation is the Saudi money that is financing the construction of the mosque in Poitiers.
- The true provocation is the islamist imam of Poitiers and the tolerance of the state towards the UOIF [Muslim Brotherhood-linked umbrella organisation for Muslim associations in France].
- The true provocation is to accuse three young people of causing damage because three prayer carpets got damp.
- The true provocation is to support Pussy Riot in Russia and to curse Génération Identitaire in France.
- The true provocation is to call yourself a democrat and to want to dissolve a group of young people calling for a debate and a referendum.
- The true provocation is the forced-march islamisation of a country that saved Europe from the Arab-Muslim invasion 1280 years ago.
- The true provocation, ultimately, is to build a mosque in Poitiers, which ought to be a place of historical memory.
All of that – and many other things too – seem to us to be much more provocative and damaging to the sacrosanct vivre-ensemble than a hundred young people on the roof of a building that is still under construction.
