Valls has been more forthright than most Western leaders in identifying the foe as “radical Islam,” but here he shows that he is just as clueless as the rest of them when it comes to knowing the root causes of Islamic terror. Valls shares the paternalistic assumption that virtually all Western leaders hold: that Islamic jihad terror is the fault of the West, and that Muslims are merely passive reactors to whatever the West does, so all we need to do in order to end jihad terror is change our own behavior. The idea never enters their minds that jihadists may be attacking non-Muslims for reasons of their own that have nothing to do with what non-Muslims do. And since Valls knows nothing about Islam except whatever the French counterparts of John Esposito and Karen Armstrong tell him, he doesn’t know about the supremacist idea that Muslims are the “best of peoples” (Qur’an 3:110) while the unbelievers are the “most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6), and this “ethnic apartheid” is not solely the fault of the French: it stems also from the fact that many Muslims in France and elsewhere in the West have no desire to assimilate, no desire to mix with Infidels and adopt their ways, and intend only to live by Sharia.
So what will happen now is that Valls will shower money on the banlieues, and find to his surprise that Islamic terror continues.
“French Prime Minister Blames Muslim Terror on France’s Own ‘Ethnic Apartheid,’” World Israel News, January 21, 2015 (thanks to Dave):
After suffering long string of Islamic terror attacks in France, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has found the root of the problem – the French, and their “apartheid” regime ruling over the immigrants in France.
“These last few days have underscored a lot of evil that is gnawing at our country and challenges we must be equal to,” Reuters quotes Valls as saying at a New Year’s address to the media.
Relating to the root of radical Islam in France, Valls said that the French “have to look at all the divisions, the tensions that have been going on for years … the neglect of the suburbs, the ghettos, the social misery,” he said.
Cherif and Said Kouachi, who committed the Charlie Hebdo massacre, and Amedy Coulibaly who murdered four Jews at a Market in Paris, were from the large Muslim immigrant community in France.
“A geographical, social and ethnic apartheid has established itself in our country.” In others words, the root of Islamic hatred is tied in with immigration and social issues, not religion or culture.
Valls called for reforms, which he believes means “fighting relentlessly against the inequalities. We have to battle each day this terrible feeling that there are second class citizens or some people that are more import than others.”…
