How rapidly is France being Islamized? Consider this piece from IslamOnline (thanks to Twostellas). “All areas around the mosque are inhabited by Muslims of Arab and African origin.” With police protection, their own guards, and a majority of the area population, there is no reason why they shouldn’t “feel safe.” But this is not just a simple issue of an immigrant population; what assurances do the “stunned passersby” have that this assertive and growing population has no desire to interfere with the secular constitution of France? None whatsoever. The debate can’t even be held, as it is hushed by the rhetorical weapon of “racism,” which actually has nothing to do with the question of French Muslims’ attachment to the Sharia at all.
PARIS, October 21 (IslamOnline.net) – Teeming with worshipers who come in droves to perform the Tarawih prayers during Ramadan, mosques in Paris carpet the surrounding area to help accommodate them.
In the 18th district, worshipers line up the two pavements outside the Fatah Mosque during the prayers, with some Muslims volunteering to organize traffic moving between the two lines lighted by lampposts.
There are four other mosques in the area, inhabited by a sizeable number of Moroccan workers.
As Muslim worshipers prostrate and kneel down outside the crowded mosque, “stunned” French passers-by stand to watch.
A police patrol passes by the mosque every 15 minutes, amid growing number of Islamophobic incidents targeting the nearly six million Muslims in France.
However, Muslims feel completely safe.
“We feel very safe here. All areas around the mosque are inhabited by Muslims of Arab and African origin,” Abdulai Manqi, a guard of the Fatah mosque, said in an African French ascent.
France witnessed a rising number of faith-related incidents in 2004, including racist writings, Nazi wall paintings and desecration of cemetery in the north of the country.
No mention, of course, of Muslim involvement in such incidents.
