While unemployment is raging, public debt has considerably increased, the education system is in jeopardy, social rights are put into question, and the Syrian crisis is putting the world at the brink of a third world war, French politicians consider Islam and Muslims in France as the main problem of our country.
Indeed, this is everyone’s central theme in this pre-election period, including the political and media frenzy which ridicules our country.
In their last published column of “What a President should not say…”, journalists Gerard Davet and Fabrice Lhomme, said:
“The veiled woman of today will be the Marianne of tomorrow.”
To avoid misunderstanding, Francois Hollande expresses his thoughts by stating that:
“Somehow, if we can offer the conditions for her development, she will be able to remove her veil and become French while being religious maintaining her values. Finally, what is the bet that we made? It’s that women prefer freedom to bondage. That the veil may be for her protection, but tomorrow she will not need to be reassured about her presence in society. “
Thus, if one follows the reasoning of the President, a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf cannot be French – since she “will become French” when she is rid of the veil and only then can she embrace and flourish in all that our country has to offer.
Therefore, this veiled Muslim-woman is currently neither “equal” to her unveiled counterpart, nor is she “free.”
Recall, however, that Marianne became the symbol of the republic after the French revolution. She is supposed to embody the values of the Republic and that of the French people: “Liberty, Equality, and Brotherhood.” It symbolizes the “motherland”, the protector but also the warrior and resistance to injustice!
But aside from the religious aspect, are there other messages being conveyed behind the President’s assertions?
It is interesting to note that the Russian media, in order to illustrate the words of François Hollande, used the picture of a veiled woman carrying the French flag. The woman is non-other than Center-Zahra France journalist and an activist in the Anti-Zionist Party, who has numerous interviews with French and international personalities.
The photograph in question was taken on the occasion of an anti-Zionist protest against the Israeli aggression on the civilian population in Gaza.
Is this photo simply a coincidence, or are there messages being conveyed to the government and people of France?
The content of this message illustrates that President Hollande is not only attacking Islam and Muslims, but also anti-Zionism.
This would mean that to become a good French citizen, the Muslim woman should not only remove her veil, but turn away from the fight against Zionism and injustice. Which would impose on her double submission: accept to deny her Muslim female identity, and to agree not to testify against the oppression of others.
The Anti-Zionist Party has always opposed all forms of injustice and all deviants trying to destroy, on one hand, religious freedom facing an increasingly aggressive Zionist power which is against a religion that refuses to submit to their power, and on the other, to annihilate all resistance ambitions to face growing injustices that attack us from all sides.
On our part we hope, that the Marianne of tomorrow will be profoundly an anti-Zionist activist for the establishment of a sixth republic that will witness the return of an independent and liberated France free from the shackles of Zionism and all forms of injustice.
