    The “Islamic hydra” has creeped into the schoolyard, according to Minister of National Education Jean-Michel Blanquer. He told French radio Europe 1, this Thursday, on October 10 that a dozen National Education staff were reported for Islamic radicalization in 2018. “In the recent period, we had ten reported cases, of varying intensity,” he said.

    “These are cases that can be of varying intensity. These are things that give rise to an initial vigilance on our part, which can go as far as firing a staff member,” added Blanquer. “There are values ​​to be respected at school, and when we do not respect these values, when we have anti-republican speeches, we do not have a place for those adults supervising children,” he said.

    He said he has also considered the possibility of strengthening the administration’s legislative arsenal in this area.

    The example of a teacher in Torcy, in Seine-et-Marne, was revealing. The individual was also an imam, and he ran his own mosque where he was “violently anti-republican”, wrote the radio on its website. The imam was therefore dismissed from his teaching post despite a blank administrative record.

    Reports from both think tanks and polling institutes, show data emerging which is disturbing: The radicalization of some Muslims in France has been continuing apace. Emmanuel Macron has barely taken these into account.

    The issue of “identity and religious reaffirmation” evoked by the analyst Jérôme Fourquet, recent author of an in-depth investigation in his book French Archipelago (Seuil, 2019), is prevalent among the Muslims of France, but the Macron administration is suffering from a blind spot mixed with omission and political correctness, he argued.

    Another journalist from France’s public television has meanwhile been threatened with sanctions for having evoked the hypothesis of an Islamist attack on the Police Prefecture in Paris.

    Summoned by his hierarchy for covering an Islamist attack on the Police Prefecture last Thursday, the journalist Clément Weill-Raynal who had also revealed the “Wall of idiots” in 2013, is worried about having done his job too well.

    The judicial columnist and once deputy editor at public broadcaster France3, exposed the politically highly biased “Wall of idiots” installed on the premises of the leftwing Union of the Judiciary in 2013 and on which were posted the photos of mostly right-wing politicians, intellectuals, journalists and two fathers of rape victims.

    There were even pictures of various relatives of victims, including the father of a girl raped and killed by a repeat offender, because the victim’s father had campaigned for the genetic profiling of sex offenders.

    Clément Weill-Raynal may soon be laid off by the France TV editorial board after he covered the search of the jihadist’s home in Gonesse. Weill-Raynal was one of the first ones to be on site. The France Télévisions reporter (FR2, FR3 and France Info) spilled the beans on the jihadist.

    He was the one who revealed that Mickaël Harpon had “converted to Islam”. His “scoop” was subsequently verified, and quickly reported by AFP and Reuters. But this information has elicited the anger of his superiors, describing his behavior as “militant”.
