“The assassin is not the “terrorism;” terrorism is the weapon that is in the hand of the assassin. The murderer is the ideology in the name of which terrorism does the killing. It is Islamist Fundamentalism, and you must say it! Because if you don’t say it, if you are unable to name the enemy, then obviously you cannot fight it!
But perhaps some of you are embarrassed to name it, because naming it forces one to question certain international friendships. It forces one to ask oneself the question of whether one can continue to have Saudi Arabia as an ally, or Qatar. It forces one to ask oneself about the ambiguity of Turkey regarding Islamist Fundamentalism. It obliges one to face up to it and say that, yes, the majority of international agreements, of international alliances we passed, push us in reality to be today, objectively, the allies of Islamist Fundamentalism, rather than its enemies.
So I propose that we change our alliances, and I suggest that all those who fight against Islamist Fundamentalism must be considered as allies, without any reservations, including, of course, Muslim countries that fight against Islamist fundamentalism, such as Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, evidently Russia, Iran, and then, in the frame of this grand coalition, we can expect to be effective against Islamist Fundamentalism…
[O]ne of the reasons for the alienation of France is Europe’s imbecile politics, which today is an obstacle to the return of security for the French people. First among these imbecile policies is the question of mass immigration… The EU announced that three million migrants will arrive in Europe next year. Of course we do not equate ALL migrants with terrorists. Of course not. However… the infiltration by Jihadists in the middle of this wave of migrants is a reality… You can pretend not to see this, but this reality is here and one cannot ignore it…
The European institutions must understand that, for us, nothing will ever be like it was before… An increasing minority shares our views on these subjects. There’s no doubt that the views are becoming predominantly lucid. We will be relentless in denouncing these dangers in order to defend the security of the French people against actions by European institutions, which I consider criminal.” ~Marine Le Pen
Sargon of Akkad: I Think Le Pen Will Win
“We cannot afford to lose this war. But for the past ten years, Left-wing and Right-wing governments have done everything they can for us to lose it. We need a presidency which acts and protects us. … Elected president of the Republic, I would immediately, and with no hesitation, carry out the battle plan against Islamist terrorism and against judicial laxity.” ~Marine Le Pen
