France Bows to Islam
Arutz Sheva 5 October 2012
By Giulio Meotti
After Hitler and Stalin, France bows to Islam. A new literary case easily explains what's going on in Paris. What eminent, now villified author Richard Millet has to say about it, talking to Meotti
The new French leftist government approved the mega project of the Islamic Emirate of Qatar to finance the disadvantaged suburbs, which are home to a significant number of France’s estimated 4-6 million Muslims.
Is Paris on sale to the Gulf monarchies, which support - anywhere in the world - radical Islam and jihad? Qatar's $ 65 million objective is to peddle religious hatred and separation among Muslims in France and other parts of Europe.
The intellectual polemicist of Jewish origin, Eric Zemmour, rightly said that Qatar's plan is like the Spanish and British nations financing Catholic and Protestants in France during the XVI century religious wars. Zemmour declares: "For Qatar, France is undoubtedly the land of Islam".
In France, there are now more Islamic mosques being built than Catholic churches, and there are more practicing Muslims than practicing Catholics:
Overall, the total number of mosques in France has already doubled to more than 2,000 in the last 10 years. Meanwhile, the Catholic Church in France had only 20 new churches built in the last 10 years, and formally closed more than 60 churches, many of which became mosques, according to research conducted by the French daily La Croix.
France is always willing to capitulate to the 'new ruler' on the field..
Marshal Phillippe Petain, "the hero of Verdun”, was one of the most revered figures who came to power democratically on the heels of the German invasion of France in 1940. As prime minister, Petain signed a collaboration agreement with Nazi Germany in exchange for keeping the smaller part of France, with its capital in Vichy, outside the Nazi occupation.
After the war, the new rulers were Stalin (France had Europe's largest communist party) and the Arabs.
In the 1967 Six-Day War, when Israel’s life was threatened, France’s President Charles de Gaulle took a pro-Arab policy and instituted a weapons embargo on the Middle East. He characterized the Jewish people "an elitist and domineering people.” This marked the first time since World War II that a head of state had directed an anti-Semitic remark at Israel and the Jewish people.
Jean-Paul Sartre is the incarnation of this cultural betrayal, the humanist guru who turned down a Nobel Prize for literature and founded left-leaning newspaper Liberation. During the Nazi occupation of Paris he was a cynical profiteer concerned exclusively with his own literary career and ready to compromise with the authorities. Sartre worked for "Comoedia”, a magazine financed by the Nazis; his work "The Flies” got the blessing of the Hitlerist censors; his companion, the feminist goddess Simone de Beauvoir, worked for the national pro-Germans radio.
After the war, Sartre rebuilt his image of grand-resistant in favour of Moscow. He already was familiar with the horrors of the Soviet Gulag, but did not reveal them so as "not to discourage the moral of the Billancourt’s workers," while French intellectuals organized a solidarity rally in Paris in support of the official Soviet position that Jewish doctors had assassinated communist leaders.
Much less known is Sartre’s praise for Arab terrorism. When 11 Israeli athletes were butchered at the 1972 Munich Olympics in, Sartre wrote: "Terrorism is a terrible weapon, but the oppressed poor have no others."
