Defying Laicite’

In an insolent public display of religious solidarity, Muslim worshippers jammed the streets of Paris to pray. The group was shielded by a private security force and although public worship is officially illegal in France, French police had “been ordered not to intervene.

An ordinary citizen, whose life has been threatened for exposing Islam’s influence in France, concealed a hidden camera in an attempt to broadcast to the world how huge crowds of Muslim worshippers blockaded free access on Paris’s streets.  The goal of the documentation: illustrate how French society is caught in the throes of self-inflicted Islamization.

According to alias “Maxime Lepante,” Muslims prayed in the streets of Paris after erecting barricades and “during those prayers” cordoned off “inhabitants of the district,” prohibiting anyone from leaving or entering personal property.

Lepante claims the French government articulates toughness, like a recent attempt to ban public wearing of the burqua.  However, a.k.a. Lepante contends that parts of the French government, while supposedly making an effort to address Islam’s societal infiltration, “continue to give Islam a privileged status.”

The French undercover videographer explained that secularism law says “People have the right to share any belief they want, any religion. But they have to practice at home or in the mosque, synagogues, churches and so on.”

Any reasoned individual would agree that the type of favoritism displayed by failing to prohibit mass street prayer by a self-professed secular French government indicates discrimination against other religions and is just another illustration of a growing and pervasive, worldwide bias toward Islam. Maxime contends, “The Muslims in the street have been granted unofficial rights that no Christian group is likely to get under France’s Laicite’, or secularism law.”

Apparently, France’s Laicite’, whose goal is supposedly to “promote a civil environment where no one can intimidate any other person due to their religion,” goes unenforced if Muslims, en masse, decide to occupy the streets and bar individuals access to their homes.

Defenders of illegal public prayer contend that Muslims must “pray in the street because they need a larger mosque.” However, Lepante, who has been monitoring the growing Islamic influence in Paris, said he “observed cars coming from other parts of Paris,” and believes it is becoming “a weekly display of growing Muslim power.” Could it be that barriers to private property, prayer mats and prostrated prayer warriors are purposeful provocations hoping to incite criticism which, in turn, result in preferential treatment?

An incognito Maxime shares the belief that “They are coming there to show that they can take over some French streets to show that they can conquer a part of the French territory.”

Years of political correctness have had powerful jurisdiction over the French people, as it does over both American and British society.  As a result, Muslim leaders have become adept at exploiting inclusive language.  Concepts such as community, diversity, tolerance, opposition to extremism, and female participation are integrated into the language of Imams proposing mega-mosques in the style of the East London Mosque and London Muslim Centre, and more recently the 9-11 Cordoba mosque struggling against public outcry in New York City.

Forced political correctness has contributed to the situation French citizens presently endure as Islamic prayer services impede Parisians’ free passage from home to street and vice-versa.  The predicament has evolved because, “From the 1980s until recently, criticizing or opposing Islam was considered a social taboo, and so the government and media effectively helped Islam spread throughout France.”

American apologists for Islam contend that large community centers and even massive prayer sessions are merely expressions of the religious freedom most politicians deny to everyone except Muslims. French philosopher Radu Stoenescu accurately articulates the crux of an issue which most government simply refuse to acknowledge.  Stoenescu maintains, “The problem is the people who follow Islam; they’re somehow in a political party, which has a political agenda, which means basically implementing Sharia and building an Islamic state.”

French publisher Jean Robin warns that, in the name of diversity and bridge building, all modern societies will eventually be forced to deal with creeping Sharia and mass societal Islamic infiltration. The problem arises as Muslims flock to urban centers vowing to adapt to modernity, but once entrenched slowly impose theocratic rule over government, society and law.

Jean Robin said, “We were expecting Islam to adapt to France and it is France adapting to Islam.”  For the world to believe it can or will be any other way is denial, and is treacherous for Western societies because just as one veiled woman on the streets of Paris recently declared, “the veil is in the Koran” and “we only submit to God and nobody else.”

On the issue of shrouded women, Jean-Francois Cope, president of the Union for a Popular Movement political party maintains that “We cannot accept the development of such practice because it’s not compatible with the life in a modern society… this question is not only a French question. You will all have to face this challenge.”

Public wearing of the burqua is an issue the French should have thought of long before large numbers of Muslim women chose to defy the law by refusing to remove the chador.  The French naively believed Islam would assimilate into European society; brazen Muslim resistance is proving that the Islamic objective is quite the opposite.

Thus, it is not the first time an illegal Muslim prayer service has managed to shut down a whole district in France’s supposed secularist society. Worldwide, Islam continues to claim the aspiration of “enhancing community cohesion.” Yet, in city after city, Muslims brazenly flout law and stir up controversy.  Islam audaciously imposes symbols of an ancient religion wherever, whenever and on whomever without the slightest hint of opposition from a “secular system.” The world is on the precipice of being held captive to a future that, in due time, promises to deliver the devastating ramifications of political correctness making exceptions for Islam.
