9/11-style Plot Foiled, but France Perhaps 5 Years Away From “Irreversible” Immigration-caused Anarchy
Written by Selwyn Duke
With France dodging another bullet and intelligence agencies foiling a 9/11-style plot, the nation’s interior minister admits that “60 attacks have been foiled since 2013 and every week people are arrested.” It’s yet another reminder why his predecessor warned that within five years France could face an “irreversible” situation that leads to the country’s break-up.
“Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said on France-2 television on Thursday night that the person was arrested on 26 September while ‘in the process of planning’ such an attack,” the paper continues. “He provided no further details but said it was the 60th time French authorities have thwarted a potential attack since 2013.”
While Castaner won’t and doesn’t say it, Jihad Watch points out that “there is no doubt” these “foiled attacks are by jihadis.” Yet what Castaner did admit brings to mind a warning by his predecessor, Gérard Collomb, now mayor of Lyon, states Jihad Watch. Reprinting part of an interview Collomb gave least year, the site relates:
In your heart of hearts, how do you judge the security situation in France?
Collomb: It’s very worrying. What I read every morning in notes from the police reflects a very pessimistic situation. The relations between people are very hard, [sic] people don’t want to live together…
To what extent is immigration responsible for this?
Collomb: Enormously so. It’s for that reason that, with Emmanuel Macron, we wanted to change the law…
Your law only attacks illegal immigration. Legal immigration allows more than 200,000 people into the country each year…
Collomb: It’s true. We’re doing it bit by bit. But that remains a problem…
You think there is no more need for immigration in France?
Collomb: Yes, absolutely.
You were speaking of vivre ensemble [living together] just now. What is happening?
Collomb: Communities in France are engaging in conflict with one another more and more and it’s becoming very violent…
What are you afraid of? Partition? Secession?
Collomb: Yes, I’m thinking about that, that’s what worries me.
How much time do we have before it’s too late?
Collomb: I don’t want to create fear, but I think there’s very little time left.
Collomb: It’s difficult to estimate, but I would say that within five years the situation could become irreversible. Yes, we have five, six years to avoid the worst. Afterwards….
The issue is that Muslims now constitute approximately nine percent of France’s population, are generally of immigrant origin, and often don’t assimilate well. In fact, they’re sometimes concentrated in areas known informally as “no-go zones,” places where civil law has broken down and, to an extent, has been supplanted by Sharia law and where authorities may fear to tread.
Note that while leftist politicians and mainstream media had long insisted that such zones were a “rightist” myth, German chancellor Angela Merkel finally admitted their existence last year; moreover, the no-go-zone story was practically originated by none other than the New York Times (in 2007).
As for Collomb, he has also predicted that a French civil war could occur in the near future. He’s not alone in worrying about such a conflict, either. In fact, author Christian de Moliner actually proposed in 2017 what Collomb fears in order to avoid one: “dividing” France by creating a Sharia-oriented state within it, where Muslims who so choose could live by the Koran.
“We can never put the toothpaste back in the tube and convert the 30 percent of Muslims who demand the introduction of sharia to … our democracy,” de Moliner said. “We will never be able to eradicate radical Islamism.”
You may assume this would make a nation rethink its immigration model. But France, like the entire West, is in denial and in thrall to immigrationism, the irrational belief that immigration is always good, always necessary, must never be questioned, and must be the one constant in an ever-changing universe of policy. It’s sort of like Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang, who thought immortality could be achieved via mercury ingestion and, despite getting ever sicker, kept on taking more and more of the shining liquid — until he died.
Meanwhile, the Independent also tells us that “Islamist terror attacks have killed more than 230 people in France over the last four years” and that “a police administrator killed four colleagues inside Paris police headquarters earlier this month in what prosecutors consider a potential terrorist attack.”
But never fear. Our (pseudo-)elites assure us that the laws of man’s nature have been rescinded; Balkanization is a myth; our strength lies in our diversity; and utopia is just one more dose of immigration away.
