“We can never convert the 30 percent of Muslims who demand the introduction of sharia law to the merits of our democracy and secularism. We are now allowing segregation to take place that does not say its name. Rather than veiling the face or adopting unimaginable measures in democracy – remigration, forced evictions of the most radical kind – why not establish a dual system of law in France?” professor Christian de Moliner has suggested.
De Moliner believes that an apartheid society has already taken root in France, which he described as: “A branch that wants to settle their lives on religious values and is fundamentally opposed to the liberal consensus on which our country was founded.”
De Moliner writes that the election of Emmanuel Macron as leader has not made the Muslim problem disappear, but has only postponed the inevitable culture clash.
“We will never be able to eradicate the radical Islamism,” he said, adding: “While we are not yet at open war, the faithful of the Prophet are already regrouping in areas sometimes governed by special rules.”
The academic’s solution is to create a “state inspired by colonial Algeria and Mayotte of the twentieth century: one territory, one government, but two peoples: the French with the usual laws and Muslims with Qur’anic status (but only for those who choose it).”
“The latter will have the right to vote unlike the natives of colonial Algeria, but they will apply Shariah in everyday life, to regulate matrimonial laws (which will legalize polygamy) and inheritance.”
“They will no longer apply to French judges for disputes between Muslims, but to Cadis. On the other hand, conflicts between Christians and believers will remain the responsibility of ordinary courts.”
“However, this system would involve schools or hospitals reserved for believers and therefore the creation of local committees that will manage them independently. A council of ulemas will fix the religious law, but the autonomy will stop there.”
“This system worked without too many problems from 1890 to 1940 in Algeria,” De Moliner argued.
He pointed to Greece and Turkey exchanging their population in 1922, to put an end to a war that lasted 100 years. Cyprus has also found peace, De Moliner said.
“Sudan has ended a large part of its civil wars by granting independence to the south of the country. The other way to restore calm is to form proportional governments, such as in Lebanon, Northern Ireland or New Caledonia.” In New Caledonia, France also introduced a system of apartheid to protect the white French population against local Kanakies.
“We are at all times at the mercy of an explosion of violence that would exceed in violent riots of 2005. Should the Army occupy the suburbs militarily to restore order? At its peak, ‘the war in France’ will be marked by a series of attacks to which no one will pay attention, by an endless harassment of the police, by ‘liberated’ areas in the hands of Islamists,” De Moliner warned.
He said Islam had become a fact of life in France. “We can never get the toothpaste back into the tube and convert the 30 percent of Muslims who demand the introduction of sharia to the merits of our democracy and secularism.”
The academic noted that the predictions in a popular novel by French author Michel Houllebecq, suggesting that the French would convert to Islam, was unlikely. “There will not be as in the novel Submission a wave of adherence to Islam, but simply a religious minority that will soon impose its rules.”
De Moliner said it was obviously out of the question to allow an embryonic Muslim government to settle in France. He proposed a system “close to the system established by the Edict of Nantes” which allowed Protestants to briefly enjoy protection in France. The Edict of Nantes (1598) had granted the Huguenots the right to practice their religion without persecution from the state.
“It was a success, except that Muslims today would have no place of safety and there would be no mixed court for mixed disputes. It would bring peace to France, break the excesses of Islam and for 95 percent of the population it would preserve a democratic framework.”
The Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, also known as the Edict of Fontainebleau, on 22 October 1685, however forced terrorised Protestants into exile or hiding. As a result they lost all social identity in France, forcing hundreds to flee.
