French Muslims brace for Le Pen presidency

LE BOURGET, France — “Inshallah, it won’t be Marine Le Pen,” said Nassim with an anxious smile. “But if it is, we’ll have to accept our fate.”

Handing out fliers at last weekend’s Annual Meeting of French Muslims just north of Paris, the baby-faced 25-year-old said he’d happily vote for any other candidate to keep Le Pen from becoming France’s first far-right president. Even if it meant abandoning his left-wing convictions.

    A ringing endorsement … for Le Pen.

    • I hope but am not hopeful that she will win, given the nutty electoral system they have.

        Let’s hope you’re as wrong as you weren’t regarding the American election.

    Muslims sure love Socialists. Socialists are pretty much have the same qualities as Dhimhis. God help us. LePen must win. The immigration tide must be turned back before all is lost

      Islam as a political system is also extremely close to Communism, except for the religious element, which is fake, anyway.

    “…French Muslims..”

    ‘It would be seismic, bigger
    than Trump or Brexit for markets, if Le Pen got into office and called
    into question the euro itself’

  • One thing I must say, having occasionally followed the election on French TV and in French websites, the French media are a lot more even-handed and balanced than the American or British ones or than they have been in past elections. Even with regard to Le Pen.

  • I hope Le Pen wins, or at least Fillon. Macron would be a disaster for France, he is an empty shell. Melanchon is a commie demagogue. One wonders how many French voters can be so stupid as to believe in Macron or Melachon.

    If Le Pen does win, there will be widespread riots by leftists and Arabs, as happened after Trump’s election. These may even kick off an overt civil war. She will have a very hard time implementing her anti-Islam and anti-EU programme. The establishment will resist her every attempted move. I would hope she succeeds, but I have doubts she will have the strength to do what needs to be done, namely kick out the Arabs and neutralize the EU leftists in power. In the last analysis, I think the French will only manage to rid themselves of the Muslims through bloody civil war, and if there is such a war victory is not sure. Sad days, years and decades to come in France and Europe and the West.

      Yes, Avi. I’ve thought and written the same re: France and Europe for at least the past year. Without very dramatic changes Europe is doomed to an Afro-Islamic future and it ain’t gonna be pretty.

      Eventually the Louvre and other galleries in France will be attacked in significant ways.

      How French to be more concerned about paintings than French lives, but mark my words that the destruction of some Old Masters at the Louvre or iconic Impressionist paintings at the Musee d’Orsay would wake up the establishment and average socialist/leftist in France more than another Bataclan or Nice attack. *sigh*

      • Great art treasures in France and indeed all of Europe. I hope they do not suffer.

        • Etobicoke_Gladiator

          As with the beautiful Klimt painting formally called Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (known as “Woman in Gold”) which is now in Manhattan, I hope the Europeans protect the numerous priceless treasures before the Islamic conquest is unstoppable.

          It is no surprise that all museums and cathedrals in Paris are virtually under 24/7 “state of emergency” protection.
