France’s Fatal Attraction to Islam

Two years ago, the rector of the Great Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur, suggested converting empty churches into mosques, to accommodate the growing Muslim community in abandoned Christian sites. Now, many people in France seem to have taken the idea so seriously that a report released by the foundation Terra Nova, France’s main think tank that provides ideas to the governing Socialist Party, suggests that in order to integrate Muslims better, French authorities should replace the two Catholic holidays — Easter Monday and Pentecost — with Islamic holidays. To be ecumenical, they also included a Jewish holiday.

Written by Alain Christnacht and Marc-Olivier Padis, the study, “The Emancipation of Islam of France,” states: “In order to treat all the denominations equally, it should include two important new holidays, Yom Kippur and Eid el Kebir, with the removal of two Mondays that do not correspond to particular solemnity”.

Thus, Easter and Pentecost can be sacrificed to keep the ever-elusive multicultural “peace”.

    Why not give up Bastille Day too, as it no longer corresponds to ‘particular solemnity’.

    I’m thinking very bad thoughts.

      Paris could be a fantastic cultural theme park if somebody chose to think strategically.

    It wouldn’t even change anything in the muslim population’s militant behavior. If anything, this small victory might embolden them to push for even more “accomodations”. A few new mosques and a couple of new holidays isn’t the end game here.

    What a surprise that a guy named kristallnacht would suggest such a thing.

    They just threw in Yom Kipper as a fight leaf. Guarantee they’re not serious about that one.

    Muzbos are always willing to accept a cowering surrender, as long as expensive jizya follows in spite of boot heels on infidel necks.

    Frenchies aren’t called “surrender monkeys” for no reason.

      I’m not French. But in their own defence. This is the result of a disease that is killing Europe all the West in fact.

    Where is Charles Martel when you need him?

      Put on your armour, Ms LePen and raise high the fleur-de-lis. My sword would be yours.

  • The French got rid of their roots. In that vacuum, they replaced Western thought and Catholicism with Islamism. Like most Europeans, they believed that the Muslims would do a serviceable job of paying taxes and performing menial tasks. That plan backfired.

    Repeat this process all over the West and one has a reason to build a hide-out in the woods.

    I never even heard the story from last August of priest and congregation being dragged from a Church slated for demolition. Doesn’t surprise me. Why should that be news? It’s only a small footnote in the quiet genocide of Europeans. Marine LePen nailed it when she said if it had of been a mosque imagine what would’ve happened. If it were a mosque there would’ve been incriminating of racism, burning cars mass rioting. And in the end the government would’ve bought the mosque and gave it to the Muslims. But it’s just a worthless church. The eviction in the pic likely the most drastic thing to happen and Noone cares. Europe is being done away with and we are just supposed to close our eyes and pretend nothing to see here. Charles Martel would roll over in his grave. Were Charles Martel alive today he’d March straight to the president of France and spit in his eye.

    I stopped asking my family members in France to leave. I can’t fight any harder for them than they do.
