Arabic now offered to six-year-olds in French schools

In a new program, Emmanuel Macron's government is offering Arabic lessons in France's public schools to children as young as six years old, allegedly to facilitate "integration". But it may be too late.

    “Macron is following in the footsteps of presidents who have tried, and failed, to establish an ‘Islam of France'”, Politico reported.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, Macron’s government is considering giving parents a “secular alternative” by offering “children as young as age 6 Arabic lessons…”

    There is sadly no “secular alternative” because French authorities continue to ignore that the vast majority of terrorists from France have been French citizens, who, unlike their parents, were born and educated in France. They were thus perfectly “integrated” by French secular standards.

    Anti-immigration politician Robert Ménard, the mayor of the southern town of Béziers, warned that “teaching Arabic will create more ghettos”.

    The confirmation of the approaching fundamentalist tide came last September in a shocking report from Institut Montaigne entitled, “The Islamist Factory”. It details the extreme level of radicalization of the French Muslim society.

    According to its director, Hakim El Kharoui, extremist Muslims in France are “creating an alternative society, parallel, separate. With a key concept: halal.” Macron has done very little to stop this expansion.

    “Two or three Salafist mosques were closed in 18 months, [but] foreign funding of mosques was not banned,” National Rally party leader Marine Le Pen noted in a recent interview.

    Jean-Frédéric Poisson, MEP, in his new book, “Islam, Conquering the West” has detailed this expansion. “The expansion of Islam in the West is part of a strategic plan developed by the 57 states that make up [the Organisation of] Islamic Cooperation – a sort of Muslim United Nations – which theorized the spread of Sharia law in Europe”, Poisson said in an interview this month. “They openly declared the ambition to install a ‘substitution civilization’ in the West.”

    For Philippe De Villiers, a former politician, the phrase coined by his brother, General Pierre de Villiers, the former head of the French military, is a timely warning. General de Villiers had warned Macron about a possible internal implosion in the volatile Parisian suburbs, calling it “the darker sides of the City of Light”.

    According to Philippe De Villiers, his brother had warned Macron: “If the suburbs revolt, we would not be able to cope with it, we cannot afford to face it, we do not have the men.”

    Philippe de Villiers believes “we may be living the end of a civilization – ours. There are two points in common between the decay of the Roman Empire and our own decay. The Roman senatorial nobility, who thinks only of adding a layer of porphyry to their bathtubs, no longer considers the limes, the border of the Empire, as an emergency to secure”.

    France’s then Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, Patrick Kanner, in 2016 already spoke out against the growing apartheid: “Today, we know that there are 100 neighbourhoods in France that have potential similarities with what happened in Molenbeek.” One such town is Trappes.

    During a state visit by Macron to the Belgian capital this week – the first for a French president since Mitterrand visited in the 80s – he also visited the notorious Molenbeek district, which he called “a territory marked by the image of the terrorist drama and also a place of initiatives, sharing and integration”.

    But there were few signs of “sharing and integration” as a man reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” while he stabbed a police officer in Brussels this week.

    Eight people were arrested in a March 2018 counter-terror raid in Molenbeek. A confidential report revealed last year that police in the same Brussels district uncovered 51 organizations with suspected ties to jihadist terrorism. Many of the suspects involved in the Paris and Brussels terror attacks either lived in, or operated, from Molenbeek.
