France: Macron Makes a U-Turn, Vows an “Intractable Fight Against Political Islam”

France: Macron Makes a U-Turn, Vows an “Intractable Fight Against Political Islam”


Back in January, Hungarian leader Viktor Orban called French leader Emmanuel Macron a “leader of the pro-migration forces” and stated “if what he wants with regards to migration materializes in Europe, that would be bad for Hungary, therefore I must fight him.”

Orban is known as “one of the most vociferous opponents” of Muslim immigration, and he has openly sought to protect his country’s Christian culture and democracy from Islamization, taking the path opposite to that of Emmanuel Macron. The tragic burning of the Notre Dame cathedral has been seen by many to be symbolic of the slow burning, destruction, and doom of French culture, and along with it, its democratic rule of law. Macron made things worse by his grossly insensitive suggestion to restore the Gothic Cathedral not to its former glory, but to reflect “diversity.”

Now, out of the blue, Macron “has vowed an ‘intractable’ fight against ‘political Islam,’ which he said seeks secession from the French Republic.” Something very strange is going on with Macron in his sudden U-turn from full multicultural appeasement to condemning “political Islam” and seeking to protect the “French Republic.” One must remember that Sharia is divine law in normative Islam, and to try to divorce politics from Islam renders one an apostate. Macron has therefore in effect rebuked and condemned normative Islam. This sudden flip-flop by Macron is likely due to upcoming elections in May; polls show that he is neck-and-neck with anti-globalist Marine LePen, who has risen in popularity due to her stance on Muslim migration. The revolt of the yellow vests is another headache for Macron. If France’s culture is to be saved from Islamization, the French public will do well to vote out Macron despite his posturing about “political Islam,” a threat he has chosen to ignore all along, right up until election time.

“‘Political Islam’ wants to ‘secede’ from France – Macron,” RT News, April 25, 2019:

French President Emmanuel Macron vowed an ‘intractable’ fight against ‘political Islam,’ which he said seeks secession from the French Republic. His comments left many puzzled about his goals.

After delivering a speech addressing numerous social issues tied to France’s burgeoning protest movement, the Yellow Vests, Macron’s press conference took an odd turn when he laid into the French Muslim population.

“We are talking about people who, in the name of a religion, pursue a political project,” he said. “A political Islam that wants to secede from our Republic,” against which he asked the government to be “intractable.”

Macron also gave a ringing defense of French secularism, and called out “communitarianism.”

“We must not hide ourselves when we talk about secularism, we do not really talk about secularism, we talk about the communitarianism that has settled in certain districts of the Republic,” Macron said, referring to Muslim communities.

French citizens gave mixed reactions on social media to the president’s remarks, some posing their own questions in response.

Some suggested Macron sought to draw support from the right, capturing some of the constituency of National Rally (previously National Front) party leader Marine Le Pen…..
