At long last, and not until after the percentage of Muslims in the population passed the point of no return, the French government has decided to do something about “radicalization”. The initiative seems the very essence of futility, since Islam is firmly established in dozens or hundreds of banlieues, from which it can never be dislodged without the use of massive and lethal violence.

Fight against Islamism: The plan extended to the entire country
November 27, 2019
by Stéphane Joahny
After targeting fifteen districts particularly affected by the phenomenon of radicalisation, the fight against Islamism and community withdrawal is spreading throughout the country. Prefects are meeting Thursday at the Ministry of Interior to discuss it.
Prefects are meeting Thursday morning at Place Beauvau for an exceptional seminar on the theme of “the fight against Islamism and community withdrawal”. No fewer than four ministers — Nicole Belloubet for Justice, Jean-Michel Blanquer for National Education, Julien Denormandie for Cities and Housing, and Marlène Schiappa, in charge of Equality between Women and Men — will be present alongside Interior Minister Christophe Castaner. “This working meeting is in line with the plan to combat radicalisation presented in February 2018,” the ministry is told.
Fifteen “republican reconquest districts”, those most affected by the phenomenon of radicalisation (community withdrawals, departures for Syria, etc.), such as Trappes in the Yvelines, had been targeted. The action of the State — both administrative and judicial authorities — has resulted in the closure of twelve mosques, four schools and one hundred and thirty drinking establishments close to the radical Islamist movement.
Objective: mobilize all government services throughout the country Public authorities have also made adjustments of several million euros through the CAF [Caisse d’allocations familiales/Family Allowance Fund] and the Urssaf [Unions de Recouvrement des cotisations de Sécurité Sociale et d’Allocations Familiales/Social Security and Family Allowance Contribution Collection Offices].
Instruction will be given on Thursday to the prefects to mobilise all the services of the State to apply this plan to the whole country, in line with to local circumstances. Locally, prefects already coordinate departmental assessment groups (GEDs), responsible in particular for monitoring radicalised individuals at risk of violence.
