I’ve reported previously on a relatively new French anti-jihad organization called Vérité, Valeurs et Démocratie (Truth, Values, and Democracy).
VV&D recently published a concise explanation of why Islam is incompatible with the French Republic and French society. Our French correspondent l’échappée belle has translated the text for Gates of Vienna, and our Flemish correspondent VH was good enough to convert the accompanying graphics into English-language versions. VH also redesigned the first graphic with an American political context in mind:
The incompatibility of political Islam with our society
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
Here is a simple explanation why the Islamic ideology is incompatible with the French Republic, and why the model of the organization of society promoted by Islam is incompatible with secular French democracy
1. Democracy: France (and the U.S.A.) (1)
National representation → Constitution [law] → Judiciary/Executive → Nation/Citizens → religions
1. The French nation, “one and indivisible” is composed of citizens. The nation is at the origin of the Legal Code and is sovereign. Sovereignty is delegated to the National Representation (those who represent the Nation and its citizens) via the vote. 2. The National Representation gives the country its Constitution which acts as a framework for the Law and the organization of society (Executive/Judiciary) 3. The Executive and national representatives establish laws within the constitutional framework. 4-5. The Legal Code regulates the operation of the government, the judiciary and society 6. The Executive Branch manages the cabinet. 7. The Judicial Branch manages the court system. 8. Religious beliefs are the private business of the citizens. Cultural practices are unregulated, as long as they don’t constitute a threat to the public order (the Executive and the Judiciary decides what is considered as a threat to the public order).
Article 2 of the French Constitution:
“Its (the French Republic’s) principle is: government of the people, by the people and for the people.
(1) The organization of French society has been purposefully simplified in order to emphasize the democratic principles which guide French institutions.
Now let’s examine the society that Islam has actively promoted for 1400 years.
– – – – – – – – –
- Muhammad (Dictator prophet) →
- The Koran The Sunnah — Hadith, Sirah (Foundation of Islam) →
- Texts →
- Experts (Interpretation of the texts) →
- Sharia →
- Mosques/Koranic Schools (Apparatus of indoctrination) →
- Sharia →
- Government (The government is under the authority of Sharia law) →
- Sharia →
- Male Muslims, Female Muslims (Faithful of an inferior status) [Slaves] (No believing man or believing woman, if God and His messenger issue any command, has any choice regarding that command. Anyone who disobeys God and His messenger has gone far astray. — Koran 33:36 )
- Dhimmis → Religions (Christians and Jews are under Islamic authority)
- Despicable creatures not belonging to Islamic society (Infidels)
If you are not a Muslim, and if you are not a Jew or a Christian having accepted the domination of Islam (a Dhimmi), then you are an Infidel.
Oh ye who believe! Truly the polytheist (Christians, Jews, pagans) are unclean. — Koran 9:28
In Islam, it is not only Infidels who are unclean, there are also dogs, pigs, blood, pus, vomit, and excrement…
In Islamic society, the principle source of law is the foundational texts of Islam: the Koran and the books of the Sunnah, which describe the model of behavior which must be imitated by all Muslims.
The government can only make decisions which are in accordance with Islamic Law. The faithful must totally submit to Sharia, without discussion, forever. Islam means “submission”.
The Muslim is subservient to Sharia; the woman is subservient to the man; Dhimmis and slaves are subservient to Muslims. As for Infidels, Islam does not even give them the status of humans. They are ranked with pigs and excrement.
This is the society that the proponents of Islamic ideology are pushing France towards, that which has already imprisoned hundreds of millions of Muslims. Violence, absence of liberty, disdain of humanist values, rejection of Democracy, oppression, fanaticism, and backwardness.
This society has nothing in common with French society, which is why there is a complete incompatibility between a Democratic society and an Islamic society controlled by Sharia.
Don’t take our word for it, go check for yourself. The texts of Islam are available everywhere, and have not been modified for 1400 years.
No Muslim organization in France has suggested that they be altered, nor do they have any intention of doing so, and they are taught today in mosques and “cultural centers” right next door to you.
