A French demonstration against Islamofascism in Paris
PARIS — Hundreds of French nationalists have demonstrated in Paris against Islamist extremism, chanting the French anthem and saying the religion has no place in the country.If the government isn't going to respect the public's right to protest totalitarian religions, they should be ashamed of themselves. This is very good that now there's a movement standing up to this monstrosity of a "religion" and making themselves heard and seen. For this, they should be congratulated.
Protester Romain Cyiril says, “France was always a welcoming country, but for the first time we have to deal with a religion which can’t and doesn’t want to integrate itself.”
Three weeks ago, dozens of far-right French activists stormed an unfinished mosque to protest immigration policies that have made France home to Western Europe’s largest population of Muslims. There are an estimated 5 million or more Muslims in this nation of 65 million, although under French law the government does not track religion.
The French government has denounced anti-Islam extremists.
Saturday’s protest was organized by a nationalist group called the Republican Resistance.
Update: Reuters reports that pollster Ifop found much of the public feels that Islam is too influential in France.
