This is, of course, the objective of the global jihad –> war to defeat Western civilization. Two legal systems, two sets of rules. Muslims are the only immigrant group to come to the West with a ready-made model of society that their religion dictates is superior to man-made law.
Anger as ex-generals warn of ‘deadly civil war’ in France
The French government has condemned an open letter signed by active soldiers that said the country was heading for “civil war” due to religious extremism.
About 1,000 servicemen and women, including some 20 retired generals, put their names to the letter.
By: BBC, April 28, 2021:
It blamed “fanatic partisans” for creating divisions between communities, and said Islamists were taking over whole parts of the nation’s territory.
Ministers have condemned the message published in a right-wing magazine.
The letter was first published on 21 April – the 60th anniversary of a failed coup d’état.
“The hour is grave, France is in peril,” the signatories said.
Far-right leader Marine Le Pen, a candidate in next year’s presidential election, has spoken out in support of the former generals.
But the minister in charge of the armed forces, Florence Parly, tweeted: “Two immutable principles guide the action of members of the military with regard to politics: neutrality and loyalty.”
She earlier warned that any signatories still serving in the military would be punished for defying a law that requires them to remain politically neutral.
What does the letter say?
It warns French President Emmanuel Macron, his government, and MPs of “several deadly dangers” threatening France, including “Islamism and the hordes of the banlieue” – the impoverished immigrant suburbs that surround French cities.
The signatories go on to blame “a certain anti-racism” for splitting up communities, and seeking to create “racial war” by attacking statues and other aspects of French history.

They also accuse the government of seeking to use the police “as proxy agents and scapegoats” by brutally repressing the popular “gilets jaunes”, or yellow vest protests of recent years.
“It is no longer the time to procrastinate, otherwise tomorrow civil war will put an end to this growing chaos and deaths – for which you will be responsible – with numbers in the thousands,” the letter concludes.
In a country which pays for several thousand former generals on the retired and reserve lists, the support of just 20 of them to such explosive language does call for a sense of perspective, the BBC’s Hugh Schofield in Paris says.
Nonetheless, that the letter was written at all is a sign of dangerous times, and the backing of Marine Le Pen means the themes will continue to resonate in the year of campaigning that lies ahead, our correspondent says.
What has the reaction been?
Members of the French military, whether actively serving or reservists, are forbidden from expressing public opinions on religion and politics, and Ms Parly has called for those who signed the letter to be punished.
“For who have violated the duty of reserve, sanctions are planned, and if there are active soldiers among the signatories, I asked the chief of staff of the armed forces to apply the rules… that is to say, sanctions,” the minister told radio network France Info on Monday.
Ms Parly cited the case of a former general in the Foreign Legion who was expelled from the military for taking part in a protest against migrants in Calais.
