Taking it to the Streets

Regular readers will remember a series of videos last year that showed Muslims blocking an entire street in Paris for their noonday prayers. The situation hasn’t changed in the interim: despite the fact that blocking off the streets for prayer is illegal, the area’s Muslims continue the practice with impunity.

Many thanks to Bear for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for titling it:

The affected locals should combine and refuse to pay taxes and council rates (at least prorata for the access lost + suffering) on the basis that the state is selectively applying laws and so has lost its legitimacy to collect revenue for areas not under its control.

Have you heard about the latest brouhaha in France? Marine Le Pen (head of the National Front, daughter of famous Jean-Marie) just this week compared the mass sidewalk prayers to the German occupation of World War II.

Needless to say, just as with Sarrazin, all major politicians have roundly condemned her. But I looked at the readers' comments on "Le Figaro"'s article, and I stopped after three pages--couldn't find one single person who disagreed with her.

Here's a link for any French-speakers:

Marine Le Pen provoque un tollé

Quote from Marine (my translation): "There are no tanks, no soldiers, but it's nonetheless an occupation, and that weighs heavily on the residents...more and more territory is being subjected to religious laws, which are replacing the Republic's laws. Yes, an occupation, an illegal occupation."

I've lived in France for six years, and the groundswell here is rising. Just as in Germany, the disconnect between the political elite and Joe citizen is astounding.

The important question is, why did the French government let so many Middle-Eastern immigrants into France in the first place? The picture is much bigger than just Islam vs. someone else.

Certainly it is an Occupation, and Parisians of 2010 are doing more or less what they did in 1940. OBL could be leading them under the Arc de Triomphe and it would make no difference.
Suspect "the faithful" wouldn't DARE try this in New York.A few mounted Police and a K-9 unit wold make short work of them.

Eyeopener "the important question is, why did the French government..." We'll never know for sure and we shouldn't waste our time with such questions. We need to focus instead on the fact that Islam is seeking to conquer Europe and on our duty to stop it.
