French letter stuns country: civil war or end to Islamist 'hordes'

French jet gets readyThe nation of France is being warned by its own military patriots to take back its city streets from radical Islamists or witness a future civil war, or even a military coup, if they fail to do so.

French President Emanuel Macron has vowed to punish the long list of military officers who signed an open letter warning of the country’s future, citing laws that bar them from getting involved in political issues.

Yet the public condemnation of Islam, and the promise of future violence, is drawing new attention to the country where an estimated six million Muslims live in poverty on the outskirts of the cities.

France’s self-inflicted plight is a well-known topic to Robert Spencer, who writes about Islam’s dangers at Jihad Watch. He has been documenting France’s demise at the hands of Jihadis for years such as the so-called “no-go zones” in which Muslims control city streets, even in Paris, and the businesses that line them. The letter specifically mentions that issue.

“The noteworthy thing about this,” Spencer says of the letter, “is that it's being made at all.”

The existence of no-gone zones is a good example of the public’s growing anger. That is because their very existence, while denied by left-wing media, has been documented over and over. French feminists recorded themselves being booted from a city café because they weren’t accompanied by a man, and French police expressed anger over being forced to work in a dangerous area in which two officers were injured by gangs tossing Molotov cocktails.

“Despite all the reassurances,” the police union complained in 2016, “there are still no-go zones in France ruled by a handful of gangs of criminals who get more and more radical as the years go by.”

Two police officers were also killed, one of them executed as he lay wounded, as they responded to the shooting. 

The letter, which was signed by 1,000 military officers, including 20 prominent military generals, states that France is “disintegrating with the Islamists of the hordes of the banlieue [suburbs] who are detaching large parts of the nation and turning them into territory subject to dogmas contrary to our constitution.”

Responding to the letter’s warning, national security analyst Bob Maginnis says he views it as a call to nationalism by angry, frustrated French citizens.

Emmanuel Macron“The whole idea of nationalism is starting to have an impact all across western Europe, primarily because of the immigration issue and the Islamization of many of those cultures,” he observes, “because the leftist governments were insufficient in the minds of a growing number of their citizens."

According to Spencer, the letter makes it plain there are French people who now see an Islamic population that is unwilling to assimilate.

“They see this as a threat,” he says, “and as problem that needs to be solved."
