French Muslims Demand Group Ban After Mosque Attack

The anti-Muslim “Identity Group” has issued a “declaration of war” against “multiculturalism and Islamizations.” Sounds like mini-Breivik’s in the making.:

French Muslims demand group ban after mosque attack

The French Muslim Council (CFCM) urged the government on Monday to ban a far-right group that occupied a mosque on Saturday and issued a “declaration of war” against what it called the Islamization of France.

CFCM President Mohammed Moussaoui said the Council also wanted better protection for mosques and Muslim cemeteries against racist attacks, which he said jumped sharply in 2011 and continued to rise this year.

Some 73 protesters from a movement called Identity Group seized a mosque in the western city of Poitiers on Saturday and unfurled a banner referring to Charles Martel’s historic defeat of advancing Muslim troops there in 732. They stayed for more than six hours before police ejected them.

In a video posted on its website, the movement issued what it called a “declaration of war” on multiculturalism. It also called for a referendum to block further immigration from outside Europe and further construction of mosques in France.

“We demand the dissolution of this group,” Moussaoui said.

The public prosecutor’s office in Poitiers has placed four of the protesters under judicial investigation for spreading racial hate and discrimination.

Moussaoui said the protest, the first time a mosque in France had been occupied like that, represented “a new escalation in violence against Muslims”.

Violent acts and threats against Muslims rose by 34 percent in 2011 compared to 2010, and went up again by 14 percent in the first half of this year, he told reporters.

The protesters had come from as far away as Lyon and Nice, near France’s eastern borders, he said.

  • @Rocky Lore,

    Oh by the way, before you point it out to me and laugh, I noticed that I made a mistake by mislabeling the article I linked to about the Rodney King riots as having to do with those Greek teenagers who rioted at that party. When I wrote “I also guess all these Greek teenagers were Muslims.” I was talking about the link I posted after that one, but I accidentally put that in the wrong place. that is all.

  • @Rocky Lore,

    Yeah Rocky, I guess that all rioters are Muslims. I mean if it weren’t for Islam there would be no riots would there? Yes and the riots in France had nothing to do with, I don’t know, possibly economic unrest?

    Oh and yeah, all the people who rioted over what happened to Rodney King, and nearly burn Los Angelous Los Angeles to the ground were Muslims.

    Rodney King anniversary: 20 years after LA riots, have race relations improved?

    I also guess all these Greek teenagers were Muslims.

    Even if you’re talking about something like the “Muhammad cartoon riots” were Islam certainly played a role, it wasn’t exactly caused by Islam. Its not like every single Muslim thought that was okay, or that there’s nothing in Islam that could be used to condemn the extremists who rioted over some petty cartoons.

    “don’t mention some stories in Egypt – tell me about Pakistan, Saudi Arabi, Yemen.”

    Ah, yes. This old canard. Yes, Christians there are unfortunately persecuted, it’s true. But the question is ‘why?’ It’s not some inherent hatred as you and your brethren like to pretend it is. It’s a lot more simple: it’s because these nations are poor and their rulers are ruled by either authoritarian monarchs, teetering, barely functional democratic governments or military strongmen. This lack of wealth and history of stable government is what makes them illiberal. Poverty makes people more conservative, not less. When they’re poor, scapegoats are looked for, whether they happen to be religious or ethnic minorities. Because a lot of immigrants from these countries are poor, they often can bring chips on their shoulders with them from their former homes, which can cause friction where they live now. Not that that’s a particularly relevant detail here. I look forward to the day that those nations aren’t barely scraping by and are rich enough to realize the folly of past discrimination, however far off that is.

    I look forward to the day when this utterly ridiculous ‘Eurabia’ nonsense is behind us. Quite frankly, I think it’s amazing that anyone can honestly believe that Muslims somehow have an enormous sway over what any government does. I know that recognition of that fact would mean that your worldviews fall apart, because you NEED Muslims to be both cringing villains, but at the same time all powerful and ever present in their throngs threatening to destroy Civilization As We Know It™.

    What do you wish to do with them, even if you could convince the countries they now live in of the dangers you see present around them all the time? Would you make them second class citizens (“It’s only fair,” you’d say, “because they [as if they’re some monolith] don’t care about Christians in their home nations! Plus, DHIMMITUDE!”)? Would you deport them (“If we don’t rid ourselves of those parasites now, we never will.”), even if they’re not there illegally? Would you make them wear gold crescents and stars (“Easier to know who the enemy is!”)? You’ll probably respond, if at all, with some long-winded proclamation about how no, of course you never would, because you’re better than ‘them,’ but it ultimately matters little.

    I can only rest easy knowing that the majority of Europe happens to be sane.

    Maybe France should ban Islam, which is responsible for riots and the Toulouse massacre.

    Xithurel, sorry to intervene, what are you talking about? whos cowardice? in realion to what? funny, but your words can be interpreted like this – muslim society demands more and more in France, and French authorities are catering to it. cowards!
    of course, you mean the opposite – cowards are the people who don’t go on a rally to protest against that OccupyTheMosque. but why must they? you don’t even try to respect them, the same feelings are shared by the muslims in France. why should they stand for you? you see, you know, your words here exposes your pshycology, it’s mentality of a user. you definetly think that non-muslims just MUST do things for you, fight for your rights. if they fight for their own rights – they are cowards, nazists, islmaphobes, racists what else?

    why it is a cowardice to fight for France the way they want to see it? it is a bravery to me, especially in modern politically-correct world. cowardice is to agree to something you don’t like out of fear to be labelled.

    you just hate non-muslims, that all I see, think they should submit to muslims, do whatever you like, you don’t respect them and try to manipulate. if I’m wrong, I guess, I will hear about your Christian right protection activity in Muslim countries soon? right?
    that’s where people really face danger because of their faith.
    do muslims try to protect them? never heard of it.
    don’t mention some stories in Egypt – tell me about Pakistan, Saudi Arabi, Yemen.
    so, you must agree those muslims in above-mentioned countries where Christians are persecuted for their beliefs – are cowards, right?

  • Xithurel

    France should have some humility after WW2 and look how they show how little they have learned – cowardice. It is SICKENING that it even got this far. They are testing the waters and France is catering to it; then they wonder why they are still being called surrendering cowards? Where is the bravery in this? Where are the rallies condemning these people and these acts? Even their law makers pass legislation encouraging the persecution of Muslims – but there is nothing cowardice in any of that…


  • @Emperor

    Hopefully these mini-Breviks won’t get any of their policy recommendations implemented, and when they realize that’s not happening, they won’t end up murdering anyone in response like Brevik did.
