A look at Houellebecq’s Muslim ruled France

The Local is the first to take a closer look at a book set to cause a storm when it’s published next month

The Saudis fund the Sorbonne Islamic University in Paris, French primary and secondary teachers have to convert to Islam, and education stops at 11 for girls, who are destined for domestic chores, marriage, and child-bearing.

The state funds only the primary sector, and all education after that is private, with the Gulf monarchies pumping money into Islamic schools, while secular schools slowly wither for lack of funds.

Polygamy is legal, and the removal of women from the workplace means that the country’s stubbornly high unemployment finally plummets.

Mohammed Ben Abbes of the Muslim Fraternity party has beaten Front National leader Marine Le Pen to the presidency with the help of the Socialists, the centrists, and even Nicolas Sarkozy’s centre-right UMP.

And the most astonishing aspect of this radically new political landscape is that France – suffering from nervous exhaustion after a decade of Socialist rule under François Hollande, severe economic decline, and the terrifying rise of the far-right – rediscovers optimism and economic growth under the rule of the moderate Islamist president…

    Betcha you won’t hear about this in our media. They are too busy going after those evil Christian universities.

    Change is coming to the European continent. NAZI groups in Europe were usually represented by skinheads, politicians are now referring to individuals opposed to Muslims as pin-striped NAZI’s. These are ordinary citizens who are fed up with both the Muslim practice of refusing to integrate and demanding the host country acquiesces to their demands and socialist politicians.

    Last couple of phrases in the posted article:

    “…Renaud Camus, whose ‘great replacement’ theory holds that France is being colonised by Muslim immigrants with the help of the government and the media”.

    Don’t know who Mr. Camus is, but a rather true and pointed accusation, that could apply to any Western nation, eh?

      I have heard of him a few times, but since I don’t read French very well, I don’t know much about him. But your point is correct.

    Toss in a few road flares to clear up that traffic jam.

      Or return to emptying chamber pots out of the window?

        I like that kind of lateral thinking. Your hired!

    Two ways this will go. Either France will ban the release and toss the author in prison. Or, they’ll shrug and mutter “what’s so bad about any of this?”

    • Frau Katze

      the latter, as it does not sound that insulting to muslims.

    It will be instructive to most French peoples as to whether this is the future they want. I’m betting most will say hell no, Change is stirring in Europe the degree of lateness in that change is going to define just how bloody the backlash will be when it inevitably happens

    Here is a British view of what the civil war will look like in Europe when it starts in 2017.

      Interesting. Just glanced at this link. A mighty huge amount of “lone wolves” are going to collect in packs if this scenario comes together! Or, put another way, a lot of “mental illness” will come together.

      But remember: Islam has nothing to do with Islam has nothing to do with Muslims has nothing to do with “the religion of peace”.

      • Frau Katze

        Now, now! “Noticing patterns” is racist and xenophobic. You must be a h8tr 😉

    whether we like it or not, islam is a perfect military strategy.

    Seeing all those Bums-In-The-Air just after breakfast is enough to make you loose your pain au chocolat.
    Yuch. Should be illegal: Extreme Mooning!

    “… the rule of the moderate Islamic President …”
    … it is, after all, a work of fiction.
