‘Hard’ for France to guarantee freedom of Islam if Muslims don’t help country – Valls

If Muslims in France don’t help the country to battle extremists and those who threaten the Republic, it will be “increasingly hard” for Paris to guarantee freedom of Islam, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said.

“Through its history and its geography… and through its immigration, France maintains very strong ties with Islam,” Valls wrote in a long essay in Le Journal du Dimanche, a French weekly newspaper.

According to the PM, Islam is “second-largest religion” in France and many French Muslims don’t have to identify themselves “as an Arab-Muslim culture.”

That Djinn is out of the bottle….

    So Valls is finally giving an ultimatium in the very French way:

    Comply with law and order or it’ll be a shame to close down those mosques and deport the the Moslem clercs (whatever passes for an intellectual)

    So M. Valls is – very reluctantly – coming to grips with the reality which faces his country. Hope he’s not too late to actually do something.

    Clever strategy.
    Like a prison warden warning the white collar criminal inmates that if they don’t stand up and help stamp out the inter gang violence and murders plaguing the institution, “Well don’t be surprised if vichyssoise leaves the menu for an extended period.”

    Who wants “freedom of Islam” and what does that mean anyway?

    What Europe needs is freedom FROM Islam.
