Former French PM Insists ‘Jihadists Act in The Name of Islam’

OMG! What did I just say?

Former French prime minister Manuel Valls has insisted that not only do jihadists act in the name of Islam, but denying terrorists are true Muslims removes the responsibility of other Muslims to act.

Mr. Valls, who served under Socialist President François Hollande, made his comments in a recent interview in which he stressed the importance of helping moderate Muslims combat radical Islamic extremism, L’Express reports.

“To say that Islam and Islamism have nothing to do with it is to deny any responsibility to act to our fellow Muslims. We must help them, we must help them to fight within themselves these totalitarian ideologies of Salafism or the Muslim Brotherhood,” Valls said.

    Shortly after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January, Manuel Valls, France’s prime minister, visited a high school and told pupils: “your generation will have to get used to living with the danger” of terrorism.

    • THAT Manuel Valls.

      How considerate of EU politicians and Canada’s Libturds as well. They deliberately destroy their own countries and then say “get used to it” as your life isn’t that important compared to our mass immigration policy. Who gave them the right of such devine authority to decide who lives or dies. They should all be strung up for treason.

    Well he’s half-way there! Hopefully Valls will soon realize that all of islam has to do with islam. And none of it is beneficial to those who cherish individual freedoms.

    He says “we are not at war with Islam” meaning that we are not making war with Islam. He needs to catch on to the fact that Islam is at war will all that is not Islam, openly declared as a war, since the apostle of Islam established it so. Nothing will get better until they realize, and say out loud, “Hard as it may be for some to accept, Islam is at war with us. And not of our doing. A permanent state of war declared by Islam will exist as long as Islam exists, and we need to have a sober-minded realism about what this means.”
