The issue goes to the heart of the Republic and France’s attempt to maintain its traditions of freedom and secularism against a rising tide of religious extremist hate linked to Islamist intolerance.


OCTOBER 21, 2020

Less than a week after French teacher Samuel Paty was murdered and beheaded, Paris is uncovering the extent of the radicalization and hate networks that led to the unprecedented murder.

While France has dealt with extremism for years as well as many brutal murders, such as Ilan Halimi in 2006, the attack on the Toulouse Jewish school in 2012, the Bataclan massacre and the Charlie Hebdo attack in 2015, the country appears jolted by an attack on a teacher.  


Now the security services are conducting a full-court press, not just against those linked to the murder of the teacher, but civil society groups that appear to be behind radicalization, as well as hate preachers who give cover for fatwas that justify murder.

This comes in the wake of French President Emmanuel Macron’s comments that Islam is in a crisis relating to radical far-right Islamist movements. The Islamist far Right, particularly Turkey’s ruling party, which is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, has slammed Macron for his criticism. Ankara has mobilized state media to attack the French president, with articles at Ankara’s government network TRT accusing Macron of “obsession” with Islam.  



Lets hope they finally found A Clue.

Dutch Muslim politician Arnoud van Doorn said in a November 8, 2020 interview on TRT Arabic (Turkey) that the recent beheading of French school teacher Samuel Paty was a tragedy, but that he does not believe it is a “coincidence” that shortly after Paty’s death, the French government took action to close Islamic schools and mosques. He said that it is often the case that “whenever there is an attack allegedly perpetrated by Muslims, you immediately see governments legislating new laws against Muslims and against Islam.” Van Doorn had been a member of Geert Wilders' Dutch Freedom Party before converting to Islam. He Is a member of The Hague City Council for Party of the Unity and the President of the European Dawah Foundation.
