France, Coming Soon: Dozens of new Mosques

France, Coming Soon: Dozens of new Mosques

The Swiss recently touched the tip of the iceberg by banning minarets, which will hopefully lead to further actions. Unfortunately another European country is allowing Islam to surge forward. Will Europe ever truly wake up and confront the threat of Islam?

Sarkozy warns against religious “ostentation” after Swiss vote
Tue, Dec 08, 2009

PARIS, FRANCE – President Nicolas Sarkozy on Tuesday warned French believers against religious “ostentation and provocation” after Switzerland voted to ban Muslims from building minarets.

“Christians, Jews, Muslims, all believers regardless of their faith, must refrain from ostentation and provocation and … practice their religion in humble discretion,” wrote Sarkozy in an opinion piece in Le Monde daily.

The president was wading into an increasingly tense debate over national identity that has zeroed in on immigration fears in France, home to Europe’s largest Muslim minority.

Despite several local campaigns by the French far right, dozens of mosques are slated for construction in France, including a Grand Mosque in Marseille that will have a 25-metre (82-foot) minaret.

The government has said France will not ban minaret construction and noted that mayors have the final say on whether new mosques can be built with tall towers.

Sarkozy pledged to French Muslims to do “everything” to combat discrimination and ensure they can feel like full-fledged citizens of France.

But he cautioned that “anything that could appear as a challenge” to France’s Christian roots and republican values would lead to the “failure” in the drive to promote a form of moderate Islam in France.

France’s six million Muslims congregate in fewer than 2,500 prayer houses and mosques. There are currently 64 mosques with minarets of which seven have “tall minarets,” according to Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux.

A French parliamentary inquiry is currently holding hearings on whether to ban the full Islamic veil and the “burqa debate” has raised questions about how far France is willing to go to accommodate its Muslim minority.

    They should watch "The Third Jihad"

      Agreed, but would they then have the guts to do something about it?

    Every Western leader should be required to read "The Camp of the Saints".

    We have "leaders"?

    Camp of the Saints should be mandatory reading. The similarity is striking, the end result will be the same. The disappearnce of the French. All that is missing is the huge ships offshore with thousands of Muslims waiting to conquer.

    Hey, everyone here should take a trip to Paris and see just how racist most French are Muslims. I doubt any of you have seen someone deliberately make someone pay more than they should for a t-shirt.

      Is that as opposed to the racist arselifters? Known the world over for their arrogance and treatment of infidels and dhimmis.

      And since when are arselifters civilised enough to wear t-shirts?

    The burqa ban was just an icing on a cake. Look, if Muslims can wear any what-the-fucks in our country, why can’t we wear our own what-the-fucks in their country? Do you know that it’s stigma to wear tight jeans and short skirts for a woman in an Islamic country??

    What about pork and alcohol? We never ban any asshole in the Western world, but it seems that we had to comply to them in their world. The burqa ban is nothing compared to this.
