Plague of Muslims ~ Sarkozy has place curbs on immigration ~ respectfully you now must ~ have a job before you can marry and bring a cousin from the Islamic world [whose paying for this?] ~ you must now show or demonstrate that you want to be a part of France ~ so that a passport is not automatically given ~ but after a probationary period of some 8 years ~ the new immigrant must show that they want to be a part of French life ~ if not bye bye [no Islamic state], burqas have been banned [that's your religion, others shouldn't have to follow it and so it should not be imposed on them].
It is time for Muslims to pull their weight ~ if you want to live in the modern world ~ this is the modern world. Most French Muslims are from Algeria or Morocco ~ if you don't like modernity ~ rights and freedoms and so on ~ go back across the Mediterranean.
PARIS – French President Nicolas Sarkozy's ousted adviser on diversity says the president's conservative party is the "plague of Muslims."
Abderrahmane Dahmane was fired last month, in part for criticizing an upcoming debate on secularism and Islam organized by Sarkozy's UMP party.
Prime Minister Francois Fillon said Thursday he won't take part in the debate, which has drawn widespread criticism.
Dahmane told The Associated Press on Thursday that he wants to engage the Muslim community against the UMP and its leader, Jean-Francois Cope.
Dahmane has urged French Muslims to gather in front of the UMP headquarters to protest the debate next Tuesday.
He and other critics have said the UMP party is not the right forum for such a debate.
