| Muslims In France Complain Of Widespread “Islamophobia”

Jihad Watch : Islamophobia know it!!!!
The incident at the lingerie-shop in Montpellier, where a hijabbed
woman was at first denied employment as long as she insisted on wearing
the hijab, highlights a frequent debate in French politics and society:
Can French Muslims ever be just French?
French Muslims can be “just French” if they are willing to adopt to,
rather than resist, the laws, customs, and understandings of French
society, beginning with the principle of “laicite” (the laic state),
enshrined in French law since 1905.
Every effort has been made by the
French state to support Muslim migrants, who have had many benefits
lavished upon them: free or highly subsidized housing, free education,
free medical care, family allowances.Yet we see that French Muslims have
segregated themselves, creating neighborhoods that in some cases have
become distinctly unwelcome to the French.
These are the “No Go” areas
where non-Muslims fear to tread. Then there are the hundreds of French
Muslims who have enthusiastically gone off to join ISIS; the tens of
thousands of Muslims who without official permission aggressively take
over French city streets for mass prayers; there are Muslim students who
refuse to study the history of the Crusades, or the history of the
French kings, seeing these subjects as irrelevant or offensive to them;
,some have objected to studying the Holocaust, also on the national
history syllabus, because it creates “too much sympathy” for Jews.”
It is not the French who are keeping the Muslims out of the larger
society, but the Muslims who are refusing to be “just French.” The
Qur’an tells Muslims not to take Christians and Jews as friends, for
“they are friends only with each other.”(5:51) It further says that
while the Muslims “are the best of peoples,” (3:110) non-Muslims are
“the most vile of created beings.” (98:6). Muslims who read those verses
are not likely to want to integrate into French society; for the true
Believers, it would make no sense for the “best of peoples” to want to
become part of the society created by “the most vile of created beings.” :
