Surging "Intercommunity Confrontations" In France Mean "Civil War Is Inevitable"

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Yves Mamou via The Gatestone Institute,

  • For French President François Hollande, the enemy is an abstraction: "terrorism" or "fanatics".

  • Instead, the French president reaffirms his determination to military actions abroad: "We are going to reinforce our actions in Syria and Iraq," the president said after the Nice attack.

  • So confronted with this failure of our elite who were elected to guide the country across nationals and internationals dangers, how astonishing is it if paramilitary groups are organizing themselves to retaliate?

  • In France, the global elites made a choice. They decided that the "bad" voters in France were unreasonable people too stupid to see the beauties of a society open to people who often who do not want to assimilate, who want you to assimilate to them, and who threaten to kill you if you do not. The elite took the side against their own old and poor because those people did not want to vote for them any longer. They also made a choice not to fight Islamism because Muslims vote collectively for this global elite.

"We are on the verge of a civil war." That quote did not come from a fanatic or a lunatic. No, it came from head of France's homeland security, the DGSI (Direction générale de la sécurité intérieure), Patrick Calvar. He has, in fact, spoken of the risk of a civil war many times. On July 12th, he warned a commission of members of parliament, in charge of a survey about the terrorist attacks of 2015, about it.

In May 2016, he delivered almost the same message to another commission of members of parliament, this time in charge of national defense. "Europe," he said, "is in danger. Extremism is on the rise everywhere, and we are now turning our attention to some far-right movements who are preparing a confrontation".

What kind of confrontation? "Intercommunity confrontations," he said -- polite for "a war against Muslims." "One or two more terrorist attacks," he added, "and we may well see a civil war."

In February 2016, in front of a senate commission in charge of intelligence information, he said again: " We are looking now at far-right extremists who are just waiting for more terrorist attacks to engage in violent confrontation".

No one knows if the truck terrorist, who plowed into the July 14th Bastille Day crowd in Nice and killed more than 80 people, will be the trigger for a French civil war, but it might help to look at what creates the risk of one in France and other countries, such as Germany or Sweden.

The main reason is the failure of the state.

1. France is at War but the Enemy is Never Named.

France is the main target of repeated Islamist attacks; the more important Islamist terrorist bloodbaths took place at the magazine Charlie Hebdo and the Hypercacher supermarket of Vincennes (2015); the Bataclan Theater, its nearby restaurants and the Stade de France stadium, (2015); the failed attack on the Thalys train; the beheading of Hervé Cornara (2015); the assassination of two policemen in Magnanville in June (2016), and now the truck-ramming in Nice, on the day commemorating the French Revolution of 1789.

Most of those attacks were committed by French Muslims: citizens on their way back from Syria (the Kouachi brothers at Charlie Hebdo), or by French Islamists (Larossi Abballa who killed a police family in Magnanville last June) who later claimed their allegiance to Islamic State (ISIS). The truck killer in Nice was Tunisian but married to a French woman, whith whom he had three children together, and lived quietly in Nice until he decided to murder more than 80 people and wound dozens more.

After each of these tragic episodes President François Hollande refused to name the enemy, refused to name Islamism -- and especially refused to name French Islamists -- as the enemy of French citizens.

For Hollande, the enemy is an abstraction: "terrorism" or "fanatics". Even when the president does dare to name "Islamism" the enemy, he refuses to say he will close all Salafist mosques, prohibit the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafist organizations in France, or ban veils for women in the street and at university. No, instead, the French president reaffirms his determination for military actions abroad: "We are going to reinforce our actions in Syria and Iraq," the president said after the Nice attack.

For France's president, the deployment of soldiers in the homeland is for defensive actions only: a deterrent policy, not an offensive rearmament of the Republic against an internal enemy.

So confronted with this failure by our elite -- who were elected to guide the country through national and international dangers -- how astonishing is it if paramilitary groups are organizing themselves to retaliate?

As Mathieu Bock-Côté, a sociologist in France and Canada, says in Le Figaro:

"Western elites, with a suicidal obstinacy, oppose naming the enemy. Confronted by attacks in Brussels or Paris, they prefer to imagine a philosophical fight between democracy and terrorism, between an open society and fanaticism, between civilization and barbarism".

2. The Civil War Has Already Begun and Nobody Wants to Name It.

The civil war began sixteen years ago, with the second Intifada. When Palestinians executed suicide attacks in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, French Muslims began to terrorize Jews living peacefully in France. For sixteen years, Jews -- in France -- were slaughtered, attacked, tortured and stabbed by French Muslim citizens, supposedly to avenge Palestinian people in the West Bank.

When a group of French citizens who are Muslims declares war on another group of French citizens who are Jews, what do you call it? For the French establishment, it is not a civil war, just a regrettable misunderstanding between two "ethnic" communities.

Until now, no one wanted to establish a connection between these attacks and the murderous attack in Nice against people who were not necessarily Jews -- and name it as it should be named: a civil war.

For the very politically correct French establishment, the danger of a civil war will begin only if anyone retaliates against French Muslims; if everyone just submits to their demands, everything is all right. Until now, no one thought that the terrorist attacks against Jews by French Muslims; against Charlie Hebdo's journalists by French Muslims; against an entrepreneur who was beheaded a year ago by a French Muslim; against young Ilan Halimi by a group of Muslims; against schoolchildren in Toulouse by a French Muslim; against the passengers on the Thalys train by a French Muslim, against the innocent people in Nice by an almost French Muslim were the symptoms of a civil war. These bloodbaths remain seen, to this day, as something like a tragic misunderstanding.

3. The French Establishment Considers the Enemy the Poor, the Old and the Disappointed

In France, who most complains about Muslim immigration? Who most suffers from local Islamism? Who most likes to drink a glass of wine or eat a ham-and-butter sandwich? The poor and the old who live close to Muslim communities, because they do not have the money to move someplace else.

Today, as a result, millions of the poor and the old in France are ready to elect Marine Le Pen, president of the righ-wing Front National, as the next president of the Republic, for the simple reason that the only party that wants to fight illegal immigration is the Front National.

Because, however, these French old and poor want to vote for the Front National, they have become the enemy of the French establishment, right and left. What is the Front National saying to these people? "We are going to restore France as a nation of French people". And the poor and the old believe it -- because they have no choice.

Similarly, the poor and the old in Britain had no choice but to vote for Brexit. They took the first tool given them to express their disappointment at living in a society they did not like anymore. They did not vote to say, "Kill these Muslims who are transforming my country, stealing my job and soaking up my taxes". They were just protesting a society that a global elite had begun to transform without their consent.

In France, the global elites made a choice. They decided that the "bad" voters in France were unreasonable people too stupid, too racist to see the beauties of a society open to people who often do not want to assimilate, who want you to assimilate to them, and who threaten to kill you if you do not.

The global elites made another choice: they took the side against their own old and poor because those people did not want to vote for them any longer. The global elites also chose not to fight Islamism, because Muslims vote globally for the global elite. Muslims in Europe also offer a big "carrot" to the global elite: they vote collectively.

In France, 93% of Muslims voted for the current president, François Hollande, in 2012. In Sweden, the Social Democrats reported that 75% of Swedish Muslims voted for them in the general election of 2006; and studies show that the "red-green" bloc gets 80-90% of the Muslim vote.

4. Is the Civil War Inevitable? Yes!

If the establishment does not want to see that civil war was already declared by extremist Muslims first -- if they do not want to see that the enemy is not the Front National in France, the AfD in Germany, or the Sweden Democrats -- but Islamism in France, in Belgium, in Great Britain, in Sweden -- then a civil war will happen.

France, like Germany and Sweden, has a military and police strong enough to fight against an internal Islamist enemy. But first, they have to name it and take measures against it. If they do not -- if they leave their native citizens in despair, with no other means than to arm themselves and retaliate -- yes, civil war is inevitable.

There'll be no civil war in France. The whole idea is to set the Middle East on fire.

Damn.  Snooze for just a minute and the bitch takes over... Oh well.  My obligatory post:

[sarc] Hi.  I'm SantaFe... Or Aristotle of Greece.  Well, whichever account I happen to be logged into.  My goal at ZH is to spam the shit out of the comments section on every article.   I then log out of my current account, and into the other one.  That insures I get at least one up-vote.  Sometimes, I'll even post a supporting comment with one of the other account just to make the original post seem more credible (see above)

I desperately hit refresh at the main page every few seconds to make sure I can get in the first few posts.  Then I use a clever URL obscuring site like goog.le or bit.ly to obscure the link to the same boring biblicism website.   I do that because ZH readers wouldn't click on the link if they knew where it goes.   I hope to trick them.  It hasn't really worked in the last 500 articles I spammed, but if I try just a bit harder, perhaps I'll finally get some converts!   In the meantime, here's a picture of me as I wait patiently for the next article to pop up.  http://goo.gl/GPvBRo

Love,

I disagree with this premise for France.  There is no political party warring against the establishment to make any conflict a true "civil war".  There may be agitation at this point... but no real change will occur until a body of men are organized to thwart the culture distorters' evil plans.

I was just answering someone I believe was PhilliPat.

I asked "Why the locked post."

He answered "Because the alphabet agencies sometimes change my posts."

Never had a problem before, but within the last week, I have had posts disappear. Other people's posts in a thread also go missing. The last time was commenting on the article about CNN cutting off a correspondent.

Not too long ago two of my comments disappeared from ZH within about an hour, and I thought they were pretty "innocent" remarks too.  So, yes it happens.

They have fucked with my posts too. It is because you make sense. TYLERS are now MSM friendly. Look at the poor quaility of this article. It takes another obvious false flag event and frames it as if there is really islamic terrorists pulling off a real event when it is obviously the JEW Boys fucking with our heads again.

"The Tylers are MSM friendly"

You have that shit right.  I don't post much but when I do my posts are almost always removed.  It blows my mind reading an article like this that takes bullshit and acts like it is a real event.  What is the worth of a crap article like this?

Ten bucks says an admin is fucking with us.  I could be wrong but the Hedge never seemed to wring their hands in concern over their image and what people think.  The financial scandles they have broken speak for themselves and the political stuff is often tongue in cheek anyway.  They probably posted this to piss people off, started removing comments and then sit back and laugh their asses off watching us all get paranoid and pissed off.

"When a group of French citizens who are Muslims declares war on another group of French citizens who are Jews, what do you call it?"

Anti-semitism, apparently.

Although neither Muslims or Jews are French. The Nation is more than its paperwork. And just because you got a passport doesn't mean you belong. Semites aren't Gauls, and must be forcibly removed by the Sixth Republic.

OK, back to root causes...

For 1400 years, Middle Eastern Muslims were happy to live in an unsanitary desert waste in a 7th century time warp. They were busy herding goats and circumcising their women's private parts.

Then along came a certain tribe of people and colonized a tiny part of the Muslim world.

The Muslims didn't like this, but because the tribe was backed by the world's most powerful military, the tribe won the wars against the Muslims.

"Maybe we should become secular, and thus, powerful, like the West" some Muslims said. Some left the faith, called themselves secular Baathists, and built powerful military machines.

The tribe became alarmed and agitated their powerful benefactors in the West to crush the secular Arab militarists.

Once the secular Arabs were removed, radical Islamists filled the power vacuum. The tribe decided to pit fanatical Sunni takfiris against fanatical Shiite militias. Divide and conquer. Works every time, and you can sell weapons to both sides!

But this only served to radicalize everyone, since in a radical situation, you have to take sides, and all the sides are radical. Some of these radicals decided to take their radicalism somewhere else, like Europe, where there was better food and the uncircumcised women had no extended family to avenge their ravishment.

So, you figure out who is to blame for this mess.

I posted this link yesterday, and I'll repost it again for those that missed it.

The journal of an English spy who set up the Whabbi movement/schools to get the Muslims fighting between themselves 300 yrs ago.

Fascinating history if you have time. http://netteandme.blogspot.com/2014/09/part-2-of-2-memoirs-of-mr-hempher...

Point being, it worked pretty good right up until it didn't.

Fascinating! I've read a ways into this. (I wish it were a little better organized.) We've seen these same tactics in the US, to create division and undermine traditional culture. If this material were better presented, it could wake up many people in the US.

Improvement or further deterioration?

@OP. I don't think it was one of my posts. Just FYI, I don't recall having had such problems but it might be location related as you are in the US and I am on the other side of the world. We don't have many men in black SUV's in Asia, although extraordinary renditions by the extraordinary nation are not entirely unheard of.

Not sure which is more annoying, him or this incessant onslaught of articles by Gatestone (= Israel) to distract attention from root causes. For fuck's sake Tylers, can we call it a day for ALL of this?

Agreed. It used to be one every fortnight and now it's a purge by these Gatestone Neocon subversives. WTF.

Maybe we are getting some computer generated article choices based on our terminology during discussions.  Maybe they don't have enough time and haven't been able to replace that sellout guy that wrote that hit piece with Huffington, what's his name.  They are getting the hits though, that's for damn sure.

WTFUD's picture

If the SHTF then fuckers like Gatestone will be the target. While ass-clowns who have never traveled 5 miles outside their place of birth yet spew an illiterates understanding of the dynamic of what's confronting us courtesy of Neocon Warmongers then they also deserve the same fate.

You know what, i cannot remember how i came to join Z/H around 4 years ago, how it came about; I believe i was researching something or other, maybe CFR. This site consumes a lot of my time because i feel obligated to read every comment in order to understand people with whom i may even disagree with. For sure opinion here has swayed me on a number of issues but i fail to understand folks who have the benefit of some good minds at their disposal are still as THICK AS SHIT, stuck in the hole they were born in to.

Agree. Gatestone is spamming, the question is why.

They know very well that the .gov version of events gets shredded here, so what are they looking for?

sand_puppy's picture

Really good question. (Gatestone is John Bolton's group--neocons dedicated to the ascendance of Israel.)

I believe that the Zionist approach to Europe is to Balkanize it.  Soros, Horowitz and the liberal Jewish left have worked incessently for open borders and unlimited immigration.  They have also been the sponsors for much of the US/NATO lead bombing in MENA which have displaced millions of arabs.

Now we find them on the other side working hard to fan the flames of conflict between those Muslim immigrants and the western societies that accepted them.

The Zionist group historically have taken the tack of breaking down opposing groups by identifying ethnic division lines and shattering nations along those fault lines.

-------------------

from a summary of this strategy at PeakProsperity.com thread "Guyenot:  Who are the neocons?"

Yinon Oden—“A Strategy for Israel in the 1980’s

Translation by Israeli peace activist, Israel Shahak, first appeared in the Journal of the World Zionist Organization

Oded Yinon is an Israeli journalist and was formerly attached to the Foreign Ministry of Israel clearly articulates the Zionist vision and strategy in the Middle East.

Yinon indicates that Israel must:

1) become an imperial regional power, and

2) fragment surrounding Arab nations into small, warring, ethnic communities unable to resist or challenge Israel’s power.

“The total disintegration of Lebanon into five regional localized governments is the precedent for the entire Arab world including Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and   the Arab peninsula, in a similar fashion. The dissolution of Egypt and later Iraq into districts of ethnic and religious minorities following the example of Lebanon is the main long-range objective of Israel on the Eastern Front. The present military weakening of these states is the short-term objective. Syria will disintegrate into several states along the lines of its ethnic and sectarian structure, as is happening in Lebanon today.”[ 477]

And noting the downvotes to all of our posts about Gatestone, they have their paid trolls out on parade and on duty.....

And @fdlies (sorry, just my little joke), the way these "institutes" (sounds serious and learned) operate it is just blanket coverage for whoever picks it up and re-publsihes. You will note that the titles of their articles are always suitably ambiguous so that as many sites as possible will publish without any critical review of the content. That's an important trick of modern internet algo-baiting propoganda.

I'm tired of you idiots calling anyone who disagrees with you a "paid troll."  I wish someone would be paying me to set you straight with facts and actual history (instead of conspiracy theories), but no one is, so I won't.  In the meantime, fuck you.

History is a slippery bugger and is written by the victor.

Just because you believe something is a 'fact' doesn't make everyone who disagrees with you an idiot.
