I doubt that you saw the small notice, even if it was displayed by a major news outlet, for they shelter extreme Islamists from their terrible acts and the criticism that surely follows. So you may have failed to note that in France, Islamist terrorism is the suspected culprit in the beheading of a French middle school teacher. What horrible crime against Islam could a man in his position have committed? He did nothing—he taught history—of the prophet Mohammad.
In an article by Matthew Dalton, in Saturday’s October 17, 2020 edition of the Wall Street Journal, President Emanuel Macron said the teacher was the victim of an Islamic terrorist attack. The Muslim assailant beheaded the teacher in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, a community west of Paris. Police shot and killed the assailant, who did not like the content of the teacher’s lessons, and so—beheaded him.
Mr. Macron said, ”One of our citizens was assassinated today…because he was teaching students the freedom of expression, the freedom to believe and not believe.”
The Macron government recently outlawed what Macron calls, “Islamic Separatism.” It had become abundantly clear that in certain communities, Islamic religious laws are taking precedent over civil ones.
This episode just elucidates what is taking place all over in Western countries where governments were kind enough to accept Muslim immigration into their nations. After a certain period of time the problems with Islamic indoctrination and separation of communities begins. Britain is a perfect example. London has neighborhoods the police dare not enter unless with armed force for raids.
In Germany this is being strongly dealt with. Social forces are employed to keep communities integrated. Mr. Macron avows that his new law, if passed, would empower associations and schools to shut down institutions that indoctrinate children and keep an eye on foreign investments in France’s religious institutions. California, Minnesota and a few other states could benefit from Macron’s example.
