The president of the National Rally in France estimated on LCI that “Islamist ideology should be considered as an enemy of France” and demanded “exceptional legislation” involving, among other things, denouncing certain articles of the European Convention on human rights.
“A war is being waged against us and we must fight this war”. Ten days after the terrorist assassination of Samuel Paty, Marine Le Pen felt that “Islamist ideology” should be considered “an enemy of France”.
“We are not waging this war against a State, but against an ideology: Islamism”, pleaded the president of the National Rally during the broadcast of the Grand Jury RTL-Le Figaro-LCI.
“If we are at war, we must declare this ideology the enemy of France”, she continued, and “decisions must flow from this declaration”. The 2022 presidential candidate cited in particular the ban on “organizations that promote this ideology”, the closure of Islamist mosques, the removal of “all funding that comes to support” Islamism or the expulsion of foreigners defending Islamism.
Marine Le Pen also defended life imprisonment for the perpetrators of terrorist acts, the deprivation of nationality for radicalized bi-nationals and, for citizens with French nationality alone, a penalty of “national degradation” equivalent to “civic death”.
Faced with the Islamist danger, she did not say no to a return of the death penalty either: “What shocks the French is to see people who have committed appalling acts come out after 10, 20 years. Those who commit terrorist acts must be imprisoned for life, ” insisted the president of the RN.
She added that France should denounce several articles of the European Convention on Human Rights which “in many cases prevents us from protecting ourselves from terrorists”. According to her, “when a terrorist who has killed on our soil leaves prison and we are forbidden to send him back to his country of origin […], it is an endangering of the French people”.
Le Pen insisted on the fact that “Muslims must participate in the fight against Islamism, an ideology”. According to her, a “ministry of Immigration” must be set up since this subject “is a major problem in our country”. Le Pen reaffirmed her opposition to “wearing the veil in public space”, asking for its “ban”.
Marine Le Pen has also declared herself in favor of the re-election of Donald Trump, which would be “more positive” than that of Joe Biden.
Returning to the danger of “Islamo-leftism” used in recent days, in particular by Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer, she said that there was also an “Islamo-rightism”.
