The comments made by Manuel Valls on March 3 during a visit to the grand mosque of Strasbourg (above) are worth noting…
They come under the same category as those made by Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, who recently announced a new “dialogue” with Muslim leaders and the relaunching of an Islamic “foundation” to fund various cultural activities.
Both men are working diligently to implant Islam firmly in France. With every new mosque, every new concession to halal food, every new welcome to imams, they eradicate a bit more of French tradition, and bring the country a step closer to overt conflict.

Manuel Valls wants to meet the challenge of “anything that slows down the Islam of France,” in particular with regard to the training of imams.
But he wants also to stem the “reflex” of soliciting foreign countries to finance mosques. “I hope to act, we hope to act… and we hope that everybody, you first among them, see the depth of the problems we have to deal with today,” he declared during a meeting with Muslim leaders at the grand mosque of Strasbourg.
“Anything that delays an Islam of France, even if this is already a reality, that’s the great challenge we must face.”
