Nicolas Sarkozy’s internal meeting on ‘Islam in France’ kicks off storm

Nicolas Sarkozy’s right-wing opposition party held an internal meeting on Thursday on the “question of Islam” in France, boycotted by Muslim groups who warned of “stigmatising” the religion

The former French president’s right-wing party, recently rebranded “The Republicans”, will debate “the place of religion” in secular France and more specifically “Islam in France.”

One month after the January’s attacks in Paris that killed 17, Sarkozy said: “The question is not to know what the Republic can do for Islam, but what Islam can do to become the Islam of France”…

    What Islam can do, is be exterminated. Anything less is criminally reckless endangerment of public safety

    Sarkozy wants to be president so he can claim immunity for receiving illegal donations – he will do nothing about Islam, just like last time.

  • Islam needs to be stigmatized. Indeed, it needs to be legally banned and forcefully abolished from civilized (i.e. Western) countries.

  • Get ready, the French Islamic civil war has begun. It will only get worse.
