Oh That Hollande! What A Kidder! France Invokes EU “Mutual Assistance Clause” In Fight Against ISIS

In Brussels, Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian invoked the EU’s mutual assistance clause for the first time since the 2009 Lisbon Treaty introduced the possibility, saying he expected help with French operations in Syria, Iraq and Africa.


“France would like to ask its European partners for their bilateral support in the fight against Daesh in Iraq and Syria as well as increased military participation from member states in operational theatres where France is deployed,” an EU aide has told AFP.

Despite intense speculation, France has not so far invoked the Nato article 5, which guarantees military support to an ally under attack.

That part of the treaty gives all signatories the right to wage war as an act of self-defence, under the UN charter.


OMG! The EU? He can’t be serious!

What will they do? Invoke more sanctions against Israel?

Criminalize their own citizens as Islamophobes?

Eurozone elites won’t defend themselves against Islam, they’re too sophisticated for that.

  • Oh, he’s done it now. The EU will never forgive him for that.

    Is it my American cowboy arrogance that prevents me from taking this seriously?

    BTW, Americans secretly chuckle whenever Europeans call us “Cowboys”.
    What the hell make you guys think that was anything approaching an insult?
    Did you hear that from the BBC?

    Godspeed E.U..
    Oh, that’s right, you are a bunch of atheists.
    Oh well.
    Speed then.

    • They will march themselves to Allah’s chopping block.

    Maybe the police and courts should yet again charge this French patriot. Yeah, that’ll help France a lot. She has courage to continually tell the truth!

    Anyone able to read french will find this article a real eye-opener. Some of the Paris jihadists are being traced back to Molenbeek, an independent neighborhood in Brussels. It was run like a socialist mafia fiefdom by Philippe Moureaux, a rancid leftist who whored for the Muslim vote and who maintained himself in power as mayor for 20 years. He divorced his wife and at the age of 72 married an Arab Muslim women of only 36. He should be behind bars.

      Frankly, we see a lot of this in the UK and soon coming to Canada. I predict this will be a trend in Montreal and elsewhere in Canada, i.e. vote whoring by marrying a young “Arab” women and openly associating with that community.

      • Wynne’s riding is heavily Muslim, rest assured deals are made.

    • Thanks I will check that out.
