French teacher under police protection after he reveals Islamization in Trappes

In France, a teacher received death threats after warning of the growing influence of Islamism in the country. The philosophy teacher Didier Lemaire says he is now under police protection, reported the AFP news agency. The Versailles prosecutor said they were investigating the threats.

    Lemaire published a letter in November following the murder of the teacher Samuel Paty by an Islamist last year. In it he accused the French government of not having an effective strategy against Islamism. In his 20 years as a teacher in a Paris suburb, he had seen how its influence had grown.

    The teacher recently described the situation in his area to the broadcaster BFM-TV. “There are no more mixed hairdressing salons. Women are not tolerated in the cafes.” After the Jewish residents of the suburb had left it because of pressure from the Islamists, it was now directed against moderate Muslims and atheists, lamented Lemaire.

    The teacher described the reality he was now faced with: His students, in a 70 percent Muslim commune, sent many jihadists to Syria.

    France was again rocked by Islamist attacks last year. A man from Tunisia killed three people in a church in Nice. Shortly afterwards, in Avignon, the police shot and killed a suspect who was armed with a pistol and a knife and threatened passers-by and shouted “Allahu Akbar”.

    But the Islamists in Trappes have not backed down. The Muslim mayor distributed pamphlets at the school denouncing the teacher. For having entered a school in his municipality in order to exert religious pressure, the mayor of Trappes should have been severely punished. But this is not the case and it proves that justice has long since been abandoned in entire areas of the country, explained Philippe Fontana, lawyer at the Paris bar to Valeurs Actuelles.

    The case of the mayor of Trappes storming into a high school in his town is symptomatic of the lack of application of the law, and more particularly of criminal law, in certain zones of France, which have been “lost” to Islam. This denial characterizes the abandonment of the very purpose of a state, the “potestas”, synonymous with the power that it exercises within a defined space over its population.

    The facts are known: outraged by the denunciation of an Islamo-leftism of which he is the symbol, the mayor of Trappes, Ali Rabeh, went to a school in his commune on Thursday 11 February to distribute religious leaflets. These facts may suggest a certain political activism since leftist politicians have been downplaying them, calling them “an error in the distribution of leaflets in a high school”.

    Others deny the criminal intent outright, like an evening daily which reported the facts in its edition of February 16, 2021: “The mayor, Ali Rabeh, went with other elected officials to confront the teacher Didier Lemaire to distribute a message at the high school.”

    Until the adoption of the law of March 2, 2010, under the government of François Fillon, “strengthening the fight against group violence and the protection of persons entrusted with a public service mission”, such an intrusion was qualified as a simple 5th class contravention, according to article R. 645-12 of the penal code, punishable by a fine of a maximum of 1 500 euros.

    Since then, thanks to the will of the majority of the Republican right then in power, the contravention has become the offense defined in article 431-22 of the penal code: “The fact of entering or remaining in the enclosure of a school educational establishment without being authorized by virtue of legislative or regulatory provisions or having been authorized to do so by the competent authorities, with the aim of disturbing the peace or the good order of the establishment, is punished by one year imprisonment and a 7 500 euro fine.”

    In a group, the sanction is increased to 3 years’ imprisonment and a fine of 45 000 euros. During the parliamentary work prior to the adoption of this law, its rapporteur in the Senate, François Pillet, had justified it by the need to make schools safe and added the possibility of placing their authors in custody.

    However, the response has been non-existent in this case even though the state has to defend its teachers and the students entrusted to it. It has two options: either the Minister of Education, head of his administration, lodges a complaint, or the public prosecutor’s office initiates public action. The Minister has only condemned such an intrusion, as any commentator could have done.

    Indeed, prohibiting entry into an establishment without authorization, “with the aim of disturbing the peace or good order of the establishment” is likely to cause the loss of the mayor’s civic rights, including the right to vote, and would result in ineligibility to be elected in future.

    Thus, beyond the interesting proposed measure of dismissal of the mayor of Trappes, a criminal conviction would have been even more symbolic and effective. But the Versailles prosecutor’s office preferred to open a criminal investigation to identify the perpetrators of the threats to the elected official, reported on social networks instead. This is an obvious inequality of treatment by the prosecution, especially if it turns out that it did not conduct an investigation into the intrusion by the mayor at the school.

    Several hypotheses may emerge, including that of a creeping politicization of justice. Whatever the effects, they are already certain: in Trappes schools are no longer sanctuaries, but targets for Islamists.

    In Amiens this has certainly been the case. The private primary school Monseigneur Cuminal, located in the Etouvie district, will close down at the end of the school year. The direction of Catholic education of the Somme considered that the safety of children could no longer be guaranteed. The establishment, which opened in 1997, will definitively close permanently in July 2021, according to the direction of Catholic education of the Somme.

    The playground is located at the foot of the Coursives, a block of buildings emblematic of the district. Muslim residents, whose homes overlook the large terrace at the back of school buildings, usually throw their garbage… directly out of the window into the schoolyard.

    “Here, some people throw everything out of the window: it can go as far as refrigerators or washing machines. I assure you, it’s serious!” This was confirmed by employees of the cleaning company to which SIP, the social landlord, subcontracts the maintenance of outdoor spaces. The last cleaning of the terrace dated back to ten days. In the meantime, waste has been accumulating there.

    There are gutted trash cans, bottles, dirty diapers, paint cans, toys, clothes. One of the employees present was not surprised: “One day, I almost took a microwave on my head. Just a few meters, and I would no longer have been here to talk to you.” In fact, during the interview with France Bleu, a tin can thrown from a window only narrowly missed the journalist.

    In a statement, the Catholic Teaching of the Somme also declared that “attacks from the neighborhood, various forms of trafficking nearby, intrusions and illegal occupation of the yard contribute to the insecurity and prevent the school from functioning normally”.

    The document specified that “the numerous improvements […] and security works carried out between 2015 and 2020 with the support of the town hall of Amiens have not made it possible to put an end to these difficulties either”.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    The Sun Drives Earth’s Climate, Not Carbon Dioxide

    Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”.

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
