« If Emmanuel Macron wins, France as we have known it can be considered pretty much over. By blaming « colonialism » for French troubles in the Arab world, and calling it « a crime against humanity », he has effectively legitimized Muslim extremist violence against the French Republic. »



  • After two years and 238 deaths at the hands of Islamic terrorism, what did France do to defeat radical Islam? Almost nothing.
  • If Emmanuel Macron wins, France as we have known it can be considered pretty much over. By blaming « colonialism » for French troubles in the Arab world, and calling it « a crime against humanity », he has effectively legitimized Muslim extremist violence against the French Republic.
  • In just two years, Muslim organizations in France have dragged to trial great writers such as Georges Bensoussan, Pascal Bruckner, and Renaud Camus. It is the Islamists’ dream coming true: seeing « Islamophobes » on trial to restrict their freedom of expression. Charlie Hebdo’s physical massacre was therefore followed by an intellectual one.

It was a sort of farewell to the army. During a brief visit to the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaullelast December, French President François Hollande honored the French soldiers involved in « Operation Chammal » against the Islamic State. After two years and 238 deaths at the hands of Islamic terrorism, what did France do to defeat radical Islam? Almost nothing.

It is this legacy of indifference that is at stake in the looming French presidential elections. If Marine Le Pen or François Fillon win, it means that France has rejected this autocratic legacy and wants to try a different, braver way. If Emmanuel Macron wins, France as we have known it can be considered pretty much over. Macron is, for example, against taking away French nationality from jihadists. Terrorism, Islam and security are almost absent from Macron’s vocabulary and platform, and he is in favor of lowering France’s state of emergency. By blaming « colonialism » for French troubles in the Arab world, and calling it « a crime against humanity« , he has effectively legitimized Muslim extremist violence against the French Republic.

As General Vincent Desportes wrote in his new book, La dernière Bataille de France (« The Last Battle of France »):

« President Hollande said on November 15 that it would be ruthless, we were at war … but we do not make war! History shows that in the eternal struggle between the shield and the sword, the sword is still a step forward and winning ».

In the past two years, France only used the shield.

France’s fake war began in Paris with a massacre at the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo. Twelve cartoonists and policemen were massacred by two brothers who shouted, « We avenged Muhammad, we killed Charlie Hebdo ». After a few days of marches, vigils, candles and collective statements such as « Je Suis Charlie », half of the French intelligentsia was ready to go and hide underground, protected by the police. These are academics, intellectuals, novelists, journalists. The most famous is Michel Houellebecq, the author of the book Submission. Then there is Éric Zemmour, the author of the book, Suicide Française (« The French Suicide »); then the team of Charlie Hebdo, along with its director, Riss (Laurent Sourisseau); Mohammed Sifaoui, a French-Algerian journalist who wrote Combattre le terrorisme islamiste (« Combating Islamist Terrorism »); Frédéric Haziza, radio journalist and author at the journal, Canard Enchaîné; and Philippe Val, the former director of Charlie Hebdo. The latest to run was the Franco-Algerian journalist Zineb Rhazaoui; surrounded by six policemen, she left Charlie Hebdo after saying that her newspaper had capitulated to terror and refused to run more cartoons of Muhammad.

  1. Quand on voit, les suédois, les hollandais, les hongrois, les allemands et les autres, et nous et nous, on se rend vite compte que la solution sera « inévitablement » la fin de l’ère pétrolière terrestre.
    Et comme disaient nos grands parents, l’argent est le nerf de la guerre. Donc, plus d’argent, plus de guerre de civilisation religieuse.
    Et certains, même s’ils mettent sur le « marché » les 750 000 milliards de dollars à un vil prix, ou nos pauvres 1000 milliards d’euros de dette nationale, PERSONNE ne pourra les « racheter ».
    En tout cas, pas les français qui seront heureux de se voir libérer de 32000 euros de « remboursement de leur dette soit disant nationale ». Surtout ceux qui paient l’IRPP, c’est à dire seulement 40% des contribuables seulement encore solvables.
    Donc, une bonne guerre civile ethno-religieuse est à prévoir, avec comme slogan , des troupes françaises lors de la conquête de la Franche Comté sous Louis XIV, de part et d’autre, « Tuez les tous, le diable reconnaitra les siens ».
    Pauvre France, pauvre Europe, pauvres de nous. Les 50 milloins de disparus de Staline et de Hitler, seront comme disait « le vieux » : « un point de détail de l’histoire de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale ».
    C’est peut-être cela le 3ème secret de Fatima.
    Le détail sera que TOUT sera « égalisé, envolé, vitrifié, brulé, anéanti, disparu ».
