The future of France, and of Europe in general, can be glimpsed in this episode.
“The Aulnay site closed because Muslim employees were constantly taking unscheduled prayer breaks and had become unproductive. It’s the truth. A Peugeot official told me that it was one – but obviously not the only – of the reasons the plant was shut down.”
They may have considered it their due to receive payment from unbelievers even while not working. In Islamic law, non-Muslims have the duty to provide for the upkeep of Muslims. British jihadist Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:
“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”
This is, of course, based on the Qur’an: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).
“Peugeot car plant closed as Muslim workers took ‘too many prayer breaks’, claims official,” by Romina McGuinness, Express, January 5, 2017:
THE head of the France’s centre-right Union of Democrats and Independents (UDI) political party, Jean-Christophe Lagarde, has claimed a PSA Peugeot Citroen car plant had to close because it had hired too many “unproductive” Muslim employees.
The hardline centrist, who is also deputy mayor of Drancy, a suburb northeast of Paris, said that the carmaker’s Aulnay plant, which closed in 2013, had been forced to shut its doors because of “problems arising from never-ending religious demands by Muslim employees”.
He said: “The Aulnay site closed because Muslim employees were constantly taking unscheduled prayer breaks and had become unproductive. It’s the truth. A Peugeot official told me that it was one – but obviously not the only – of the reasons the plant was shut down.”
The shocking claims were made in French newspaper France Info.
Mr Lagarde added that he wasn’t trying to “irk” Muslims and spark a controversial debate about religion at work, but said he wanted to “end the Omerta”.
He said: “Some Muslim employees are proselytising at work and harassing their non-Muslim co-workers.
No one should feel under pressure to convert to Islam or accommodate religious colleagues. Because religion has no place in the workplace.: [sic]
A Peugeot spokesperson, however, has denied Mr Lagarde’s “inflammatory” claims and said that, at the time, the automobile behemoth had been on the brink of bankruptcy and that bosses had decided to close the Aulnay plant to “cut losses”.
PSA Peugeot Citroen Trade union CGT representative Jean-Pierre Mercier also condemned Mr Lagarde’s “nasty lies”….
