French Far-Right Group Storms Site of New Mosque

France 24, October 21, 2012

Around 60 members of a French far-right group occupied the site of a future mosque on Saturday to protest against the influence of Islam in France. Their act was widely condemned by politicians and Muslim groups.

Around sixty members of an extreme right-wing group stormed the site of a future mosque in France on Saturday, to protest against what they see as Islam’s increasing influence in the country.

According to French media, protesters from a group called Generation Identity occupied the building site in a suburb of the town of Poitiers, western France, at around 6am.

They climbed onto the building’s roof and displayed a banner marked with “732 generation identity” in reference to the year 732, when Charles Martel halted the advance of the invading Muslim army to the north of Poitiers.

The group makes their views clear on their website, which bears the statement: “We do not want more immigration from outside Europe or new mosque construction on French soil”.

The protesters apparently took to social media site Twitter, declaring they would not be leaving the mosque until they were removed by the authorities.

But the demonstrators left the site around 1pm after reaching an agreement with police. Three members of the group were subsequently arrested.

France’s Interior Minister Manuel Valls denounced Saturday’s dawn raid, describing it as “hateful provocation”, while Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault “strongly condemned” the act, saying it was against “the French Republic and its values”.

Both the country’s ruling Socialist Party and the Communist Party have called for Generation Identity to be dissolved. Prosecutors in Poitiers are examining whether to press charges against the group for “holding an unauthorized protest and inciting racial hatred”.

France’s Muslim groups were left shocked and angered by the occupation. The French Council of Muslim Faith (CFCM) said the group’s “wild” act undermined cohesion between France’s religious communities.

“This occupation was wild and illegal and was accompanied by the shouting of hostile slogans against Islam and Muslims. It is the first time this has happened in the history of our country,” said a statement from the CFCM, France’s main Muslim organisation.

“We are deeply concerned about this new form of anti-Muslim violence which demonstrates, once again, the willingness of these factions to risk our national cohesion by inciting hatred and division,” the statement read.

[Editor’s Note: The group has released a statement about the occupation in English which contains the group’s aims and demands. It can be found here.]

    Are these people for real? What do they think will happen if the Muslim’s ever do take over? Islam is inherently opposed to the values of the French Republic. Unless I missed the part where France’s values were replaced with committing suicide.

    ““We are deeply concerned about this new form of anti-Muslim violence

    YOU are causing the incitement of hatred and division. The French people were mostly ONE until you allowed massive numbers of non-French people with different values and group dynamics to enter the country thus tearing apart the social fabric of the nation and causing anger. YOU destroyed the national cohesion.

    Monsters!

    • Sun

      It isn’t genocide. As much as I despise some of what is going on, genocide is forcibly killing a wide range of people due to their ethnicity. If people are inter-racially mating that isn’t genocide.

      Yes one group is being out breed but that isn’t want genocide is. Extinction doesn’t equal genocide. Many animals become extinct but not necessarily due to genocide (wide range slaughter by humans).

      • razorrare

        read the link i supplied…

        The following quote is from the United Nations “Genocide Convention”:

        “Acts Constituting Genocide “Article II “In the present Convention, genocide
        means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in
        part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: “(a) Killing
        members of the group; “(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of
        the group; “(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life
        calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; “(d)
        Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; “(e) Forcibly
        transferring children of the group to another group.”

        Genocide, by the above definition, applies to national groups, including
        Americans; and ethnic groups, including people of European descent in the United
        States and South Africa; as much as any other groups. It is my contention that
        the people of European descent of this world are the targets of a constant,
        consistent, systematic, sustained campaign of genocide, with the intention of
        humiliating, subjugating, and eventually eliminating our people. This is being
        accomplished on two levels: by means of both overt and covert government
        coercion; and by means of both an open psychological warfare campaign and, using
        sophisticated psywar techniques, a subliminal psywar campaign.

        Think about racial integration. The laws which formerly protected the freedom
        of association of different racial groups, who in all of recorded history have
        shown a strong tendency to segregate themselves and evinced a strong desire to
        live among their own kind and by their own values, were all reversed by illegal
        decrees of a leftist Supreme Court, until today freedom of association is
        virtually illegal, except, so far, in the bedroom. All human societies, and
        indeed all forms of higher life on this planet, require an exclusive territory
        for their survival. Nations and species both defend their territories, sometimes
        unto death, because that truth is graven upon their hearts at a very deep,
        instinctual level. It is this inner knowledge of the need for an exclusive
        territory that makes us naturally group together along ethnic lines and makes
        our young men willing to fight and die to keep our territory — our country —
        for ourselves. We cannot survive unless we have a territory exclusively our own.
        Integration takes that away from us.

        According to section C of the Genocide Convention, genocide is “Deliberately
        inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its
        physical destruction in whole or in part.” One look at the interracial murder
        and interracial rape statistics put out by the FBI is enough for any reasonable
        person to see that Americans of European descent have been under a constant
        physical assault, due in no small part to the promotion of “integration.” And
        “integration” has destroyed our criminal justice system; the guilty often go
        unpunished or the innocent are persecuted, not on the basis of the evidence, but
        based on the racial composition of the jury, which is acknowledged even by the
        news media to be one of the most important factors in the outcome of a trial.

        One particularly horrible consequence of “integration” is the forced taking
        of our innocent little children, some of them only five years old, and bussing
        them into the Third World war zones that so many of our cities have become; or
        bussing the warring gangs into our neighborhoods — all in the name of
        “integration.” According to section E of the Genocide Convention, genocide is
        defined as “Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.” Even
        though decent and thoughtful members of many races have been against it from the
        beginning, our masters are now accelerating a push to promote interracial
        adoption as a government policy, opposition to which will be punishable by law.
        This also fits the definition of genocide under section E.

        Section B of the Genocide Convention defines genocide as “Causing serious
        bodily or mental harm to members of the group.” We have discussed bodily harm —
        what about mental harm? To be healthy, every child and every adult must have a
        positive sense of identity. In the United States, our schools used to teach our
        children about the positive contributions of our race, which founded America and
        Western Civilization itself. We taught our children to respect the cultures of
        other peoples, yes, but also to revere and honor our people’s achievements, from
        the Iliad to Shakespeare, from Stonehenge to the transistor to the walk on the
        moon. And they were acknowledged as OUR achievements! But under the current
        regime of Political Correctness it is considered evil to acknowledge the fact
        that ours is a European civilization. Our achievements may not be mentioned in
        class or textbook unless in the same breath an African, an Oriental, or a
        lesbian Communist is given equal billing, and historical accuracy be damned! The
        desire of people to live among their own kind is called “racism,” and guilt for
        this imagined sin is inculcated among our young people in almost every book,
        television program, motion picture or even computer game that is made available
        to them. They are told that their ancestors, who built America and the West,
        were wrong and that only the Communist-inspired “civil rights” revolution of the
        last few decades has finally set things right. They are spoon-fed a moral
        outlook on the world in which anything which tends to the survival and
        advancement of White Americans is deemed evil, and everything which tends to our
        extinction is deemed good, by definition. This alien morality, which does no
        race any good except our self-appointed masters, has grievously injured two
        entire generations of our people. It is sick — it is evil — and it is
        undoubtedly genocide — “causing serious mental harm to the members of the
        group.”

        Section D of the Genocide Convention defines genocide as “imposing measures
        intended to prevent births within the group.” Ask yourself this question: What
        has been the demographic result of all the so-called “feminist” agitation of the
        last few decades? Has it resulted in a significant reduction in the numbers of
        the Third Worlders now crowding our cities? Are illegal Mexican immigrant women
        or inner city welfare mothers now taking up careers and foregoing children until
        they’re nearly forty? Or is it traditional European-American women who have
        decided that there are things more important than the creation and raising of
        the next generation of our people?

        We as a people are not even replacing ourselves. We are starting our families
        later if at all, and few women have the three children necessary to maintain our
        numbers. The promotion of abortion on demand has also made little dent in the
        mushrooming population of non-Americans within our borders, but it has convinced
        many millions of our own people that slaying their children in the womb, for no
        better reason than personal convenience, is a good and laudable idea. A whole
        generation has thus been killed and will never see the light of day — yet
        another reason why the portion of the population of European descent is in
        precipitous decline. Other anti-birth policies include the media and government
        campaigns to promote and legitimize homosexuality.

        Is there an identifiable power structure within America which is “imposing
        measures intended to prevent births within the group”? You bet there is!

        We have not yet addressed section A of the convention, “killing members of
        the group,” but when the New World Order boys have succeeded in disarming us we
        shall see what their intentions really are in that regard.

        • Sun

          I knew someone would bring up the UN convention. All possible forms of genocide listed in the article convention do not describe what is going on.

          No one is preventing a certain group from having births. You could argue that  some people are encouraging people to not have births, but you can’t argue someone is preventing it. 

          No one is transferring children.

          Are people being targeted racially for crimes? Sure. Does this prove genocide? No. Because genocide is the systematic killing of people (like the favored Boers/Afrikaners that get brought up).

          You may not like racial integration, but that doesn’t prove genocide. Has the European demographic been declining? Yes. But that is mostly self induced. 

          That is the difference between you and me. I take responsibility whereas you believe there is a genocidal conspiracy.

          That is why I agree with you when you say “We as a people are not even replacing ourselves. We are starting our families later if at all, and few women have the three children necessary to maintain our numbers.” Intelligent societies often times destroy themselves.

          Is someone pointing a gun at your face telling you you can’t make babies? I seriously doubt it.

          There has been a culture shift and values have changed mostly for the worse.

          Homer and Shakespeare were great European men. But I do not claim glory for what they have done just because I’m part of the same racial group. I don’t need to do that to boost my self esteem and try to make myself important. I look at myself and try to do something.

          You sound insane when you say it is genocide. No one, beyond a fringe group, is going to take it seriously.

          • John

             Good thing most sane people who consider you nuts for downplaying genocide.

          • Germanacus

            Part (c) covers it quite nicely. It is, according to the definition, genocide. Whatever you want to call it the end result is the same — decreasing the White race while increasing non-White races. Our immigration policies constitute race replacement done with that express intent i.e. with malice and foresight. In fact, all Leftist policies in matters of race have a genocidal effect on the White race and no other.

            calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

          • MikeofAges

             Keep in mind, alth0ugh this idea probably was not on the radar screen when the genocide convention was written, conditions of life need not be severely deprived or even unpleasant to meet the criteria of being calculated to bring  about the physical destruction of a defined group. They merely need to be cleverly designed so as to discourage family formation and reproduction.

          • The liberal media is glorifying abortion, birth control, integration, gun control, drug use, miscegenation, etc. They are dumbing down the education system, glorifying minority causes and targeting anything and anyone white, Christian, male and/or heterosexual and they are creating unholy alliances against this demographic and destroying it’s culture. They are “slow-boiling the frog” one degree at a time. To do it blatantly, boldly, all at once would look more like genocide. They don’t want to eradicate us they just want to topple us and then use us as hard working tax payers.

            You are severely lacking in any insight.  If we were talking about polar bears, snow tigers, or islanders from Papua New Guinea you would be contributing money and attending benefits to “Stop Genocide!” but since it’s white people, it’s “insane.”  Dickhead.

            Go back to Stormfront. Dickhead.

        • “(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

          This is a great argument against integrated schools.

      • There is such a thing as an imperfect or incomplete genocide. e.g. the Armenian genocide. There are still Armenians in the world and there was a genocide committed against them, but they survived it. We will survive the current liberal driven genocide but it takes time to wake up the people who have been anesthetized by the liberal media and academia.

    “France’s Interior Minister Manuel Valls denounced Saturday’s dawn raid, describing it as “hateful provocation”, while Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault “strongly condemned” the act, saying it was against “the French Republic and its values”.

    Of course the corrupt political stooges are appalled.

    They were duped into importing third world hordes, under the pretense they couldn’t carry on due to low birth rates….which was and is an absolute lie……and they introduced brainwashing Orwellian slogans about how great diversity is to fool the masses and followed it up with rabid intimidation towards French natives who might protest their country being taken away from them.

    Now…as in Greece…it’s all starting to unravel.  The masses are starting to stir a bit.  Soon they will awaken all the way as austerity cuts grow more severe.

    That squeak that has been heard all over France recently is an old 1789 guilliontine being oiled up by peasants who are looking for corrupt, political, elitist heads.

    • The politicos were not duped in the least. They know exactly what they are doing; replacing native White populations with third-world browns. This is intentional, not accidental.

      The exact same thing is happening in this country, with illegal invading Mexicans
      and the hordes of “legal” immigrants we allow in each year from the third world.
      This is also by design. The only ones who have been duped are the American
      people, with such slogans as, “diversity is out greatest strength.”

      • libertarian1234

        “The politicos were not duped in the least. They know exactly what they are doing; replacing native White populations with third-world browns. ”

        You’re right regarding one faction, the one that is dedicated to destroying whites and Western culture, but there are more than that involved.

        There are also the rainbow utopians who truly believe their efforts will bring about the multicultural paradise they desire.  These are pixies who see prancing ponies,  usually the ones who have bought into the brainwashing from the elites about diversity being their strength in an Orwellian psy ops to keep them happy about being replaced.

        Then there are the dupes I mentioned.  Many of them are in the government, and they have been flim flammed into believing the answer to low birth rates and increased payments to seniors is to import warm bodies into the system as consumers and tax units.  They eagerly jumped on that theory, because they saw it as a way to continue on forever with their socialist society, which would keep their assets, money and power safe and secure.  If it means a Muslim/’black society they don’t really care.

        I imagine there are some involved in the scheme who embrace the ideology of all three factions.  But, in my estimation most of them, especially the politicos,  see unchecked immigration as a source of income and revenue, and have been fooled into believing it is their only solution.

  • “France’s Muslim groups were left shocked and angered by the occupation”

    They are shocked and angered that some people have the audacity to object to the invasion of their homeland. I’m shocked and angered that only a handful of French are willing/able to participate in such protests. There should be millions of people in the streets protesting against the destruction of their nation. That there are no such protests shocks and angers me.

  • ViktorNN

    The demonstrators are smart. Calling for a referendum is quite brilliant actually.

    Everyone knows there’s a good chance that the French people would oppose more immigration and the building of new mosques. By demanding something which those in power will deny – it makes those holding power look weak, like they have something to fear. This is a tactic that all Europeans facing high levels of unwanted  immigration could borrow.

    This occupation was wild and illegal and was accompanied by the shouting of hostile slogans against Islam and Muslims.

     It is the first time this has happened in the history of our country,” said a statement from the CFCM, France’s main Muslim organisation.

    What-! The first part of this statement is enough to have left  me speechless.  The Religion of Peace taking umbrage at getting some of what they’re so used to dishing out to others.

     But the second part  makes no sense whatsoever. Still, that’s Muslims for you. 

  • NorthernWind

    I have no problems with Muslim’s who stay “home”. After all, I have no desire to nor any legitimate right to tell them what to do in their homelands. That’s up to them.

    I don’t blame Muslims for coming to European countries either because it’s our own governments who are inviting them. I will not hesitate to criticize those that are here though when they act in a hostile manner towards our culture. They are guests, nothing more.

  • Educated Muslims are delightful people….BUT — they are probably a small percentage of the total.

  • anarchyst

    The solution to the problem lies in a work of fiction–“Unintended Consequences” by John Ross.    It offers solutions to “reign-in” public figures and politicians that no longer represent the “will of the people”.
    Sellers of this book were harassed by US government agents.  It is out-of-print, but still available on ebay and amazon.  Don’t let the somewhat stiff price deter you from obtaining a copy. . . it’s well worth it.

    • Unintended Consequences doesn’t offer solutions to anything, because it is as you said at first, purely a work of fiction.  John Ross personally told me so, just before he started his campaign for Congress in 1998.  Incidentally, he ran as a Democrat against Jim Talent, the same Jim Talent who will probably be Defense Secretary if Romney wins.

      Not long after that campaign, he and the Mrs. decided to part ways amicably.  She told him that somewhere in between her moving out of his house and the ink drying, the FBI tried to shake her down to get her to “admit” that UE was really an instruction manual, and not as it was and as she said it was and is, a work of fiction.
