Dateline, Paris, France 2016: There is a reputable think tank in France called “Institut Montaigne.” The Institut Montaigne is a French think tank founded by Claude Bébéar in 2000 (he is a successful French businessman – a Warren Buffet of France. He is the founder and former CEO of AXA, a global financial services giant based in Paris). The Institut Montaigne was founded with the aim to promote both competitiveness and social cohesion and to help shape public policy to improve both economic and social environment in France. In translation – this means that the entrenched parasitical interests of profit and money wish to pacify French patriotism in order to allow the world to run over the nation of France in the interests of worldwide economic profit. The true capitalists of the West (masters of the democracy of the stock-exchange) have long ago betrayed the national interests of the countries in which they began. Still, Institut Montaigne is not as bad as it could be. It leans conservative, even though it is on the fence about many important issues on which the Left must be opposed because they lead to the ultimate suicide of France and the West. It almost broke a taboo in conducting a survey of Muslims. So this think tank produced recently an important survey of the French Muslims in which some startling findings were presented. Chief among them is the preference for Shariah Law over any other among a full third of the French Muslims – and that Bin Laden’s Islam of no compromise is craved by a half of young French Muslims! The secular education system fit for spiritless materialists has failed! The emperor has no clothes! French culture, French literature, French history and the biographies of prominent men of French history – absolutely DO NOT inspire the immigrant Muslims in France – but ISIS and the Islamic culture of violence does!?
Benoit Rayski wrote a cynical assessment of the Institut Montaigne survey on Muslim attitudes and preferences because the reality of the situation forced him into the cynical corner. The cowardly LEFT misrepresents survey results to make the public drugged by lies into the sleepiness of the oblivion in which the West will perish unless an awakening is made to happen somehow. Rayski is a historian, a somewhat conservative writer, and journalist, one of a few Frenchmen with public access that are unafraid to speak up.
Of course, we would be reasonable to assume that those Muslims who responded to the survey better or more favorably to France’s interests are not clearly separated from their brethren that are openly supporting the radical Islam sentiment. A sizeable chunk of them could be considered as leaning radical, at the end of the day – just as their sympathies lie against Israel, which is always a solid litmus test of bottom-line Islamic attitudes.
How can France survive as a nation? Bear in mind that nations are NOT economic units (contrary to what the Left will falsely make you believe) but political, cultural and ultimately – spiritual entities or unities emerging from the depths of political history! No economics can ever create a nation! So, economic immigration is a death-knell for every Western nation. It is a sign of an inorganic state of the West, because economics by themselves cannot be in the interest of any nation, just as people need food but don’t live just to eat!That is what history proper teaches us. How can we make the Left understand its errors? Are surveys enough? Of course, no….
MUSLIMS OF FRANCE: THE SURVEY THAT SURPRISES? NO, THE SURVEY IS SCARY!
Often, just as it is in the case of gifts, everything is a matter of packaging. The gift papers are, according to the designers who designed them, more or less pretty. And there – this is the Journal du Dimanche – which presented a terrible survey in packaging that has been treated so that the appearance is full of charm. But inside, it’s all but a gift …
In the “one” of the newspaper, this title appeared as a result of the published survey: “Muslims of France, the inquiry that surprises”. And we rush – a surprise, it’s always tempting – to see. The investigation for the survey, thorough and meticulous, was carried out by Ifop for the Institut Montaigne.
And, in a first impulse, we let ourselves be taken in by the packaging. The figures that are highlighted give off the sweet and soothing fragrance of the roses of our gardens. Coeducation ? “Do you agree to go to a mixed pool?” Answer: 75% yes in men, 56% in women. It’s good, no? “Are you in favor of wearing the full veil?” Answer: 65% not in men, 61% in women. It’s not too bad, right?
But we have the temptation – diabolical, not to say Islamophobic – to tear the wrapper in order to savor indiscriminately what is inside. The same figures quoted above say that 25% of men and 39% of women refuse to go to a mixed swimming pool! It’s worse, isn’t it? They also say, in these figures, that 20% of men and 39% of women agree on the full veil! That too is more or less good, isn’t it?
We continue ? Yes, and it will be even better. 29% of the Muslims and Muslims surveyed say that the Sharia is more important than the law of the Republic! Yes, 29%, that is to say a third of the population who declare themselves Muslim … This figure is not worrying: it is appalling. And to add to this – a [Muslim] declaration of war on France, for it is specified in the survey that this devouring passion for a rigorous, fundamentalist Islam is overrepresented among young Muslims: 50% of the under 25 years fervently advocate it!
I’m sorry to have to remove the veil (no pun intended) which is the subject of this survey’s investigation … Sorry also to say that, alas, there is nothing, strictly nothing, surprising in this survey. We all know, and for a long time, what is the status of Islam in France. It was subdued and seething: the figures, naked and cruel, prove it. So much the worse for the obtuse and blind supporters of the “no amalgam Islam”, the so-called religion of peace and love.
It is true that the expert of the Institut Montaigne who comments on these damning results tries to relativize them with a new concept. For him, we must just see the consequence of a breath of revolt which he calls “Islamic pride” (very naive). A bit like the “gay pride” that allowed homosexuals to show themselves and assert themselves. Do not stop here. Will we see one day a “catholic pride”, a “jew pride”, a “french pride”? And why not a “corsica pride”? Ah! But that’s already done.
