    The information could have gone unnoticed by the general public. But a tweet from Senator Stéphane Ravier, of the National Rally, revealed that the much-maligned preacher Eric Younous will be in conference in Marseille, on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 December, in three mosques in the city.

    “A Wahhabi S-file preacher who studied in Saudi Arabia comes to give talks in Marseille, in a mosque inaugurated by Martine Vassal, who presented the department medal to the president of the association of the place of worship,” noted the elected member on Twitter.

    The parliamentarian pointed out that Eric Younous “is nevertheless known: on the S-file and he is a ‘YouTube’ imam, very well followed on social networks, on the Internet. And he does not represent the most flowering branch of Islam, since it claims to be of Wahhabism, Saudi Islam, which is not known to be the most open Islam”.

    Ravier added: “I once again alert the political authorities to Islamism, which is developing with impunity and in a very official, very free, very public way.”

    As the local Marsactu website noted, last April, Omar Messikh, president of the association La Mosquée des Cèdres, wanted the establishment to be inaugurated with great fanfare by several officials, including the mayor of Marseille, Jean- Claude Gaudin, or the president of the departmental council of Bouches-du-Rhône, Martine Vassal.

    While the first awarded Omar Messikh the City’s medal of honor, the second awarded him that of the departmental council. “Perhaps they will be challenged by these invitations,” Stéphane Ravier said, denouncing “a deafening silence from the local authorities”.

    “For their part, nothing is moving at the moment of elections. They may not want to target a certain electorate. But I take my responsibilities,” he said.

    In an article dated February 2016, Marianne reported an extract from a preaching by Eric Younous, held in Gabon, about “the conception of women according to the West”.

    “Freedom is to walk half naked in the streets and be only an object of temptation,” he said at the time.

    The Islameurope blog, for its part, claims that Eric Younous was “trained at the Wahhabi University of Medina in Saudi Arabia”. From quotes and videos it is gleaned that the preacher “denies anti-white racism” and “relativizes all the racist crimes perpetrated against whites”.

    Moreover, he “promotes on his official Facebook page some anti-Christian sites”.

      Eric Younous is a French convert to Islam, and an apostate from Roman Catholicism. Nevertheless, as this article notes, he is quite influential as a preacher and propagandist, especially on mass media and social media. An extremist? Certainly. Dangerous? Even more so.
