The following video is evidence of how much Marine Le Pen and the Front National have put the fear of God (or Moloch, or whatever it is the “center-right” politicians worship in France) into the party of Nicolas Sarkozy.
In the recent Republican Party primary, Mr. Sarkozy was pushed out of the running for next year’s presidential election by François Fillon. Some excerpts from Mr. Fillon’s remarks are below. Whether he can successfully rip off the energy of Marine Le Pen remains to be seen.

|00:00||I requested administrative control of the Muslim faith|
|00:04||and prohibition of its funding by foreign countries until Muslims|
|00:08||are fully integrated with the Republic. I want the immediate dissolution of all movements|
|00:12||that claim connection with Salafism or the Muslim Brotherhood, because they defend ideas contrary|
|00:15||to our values. And in the past we have we have dissolved political movements that defend ideas|
|00:23||contrary to our values, whether right- or left-wing. Islamic totalitarianism declared war on us,|
|00:28||and it has its fighters among us. I want to clarify our relations with|
|00:32||Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which are sheltering the ideologues of radical Islam|
|00:36||and the grim promoters of the burkini. National unity|
|00:40||calls for a strictly controlled immigration, reduced to a minimum,|
|00:44||chosen by quotas, obedient concerning the duties of foreigners,|
|00:48||bending to the language, customs, and two thousand years of history.|
|00:52||It’s a question of unity, but it’s also a question of respect, because|
|00:56||the last people arriving in a house, shouldn’t consider themselves the leaders and the owners|
|01:00||in someone else’s place. I demanded a re-organization of our intelligence services,|
|01:04||and a strict application of the Penal Code, which allows a sentence of up to 30 years of prison|
|01:08||for all those who have relations with enemy, meaning the Islamic State.|
|01:12||[I also demanded] the aggravated sentencing for those visiting jihadist internet pages.
