Below is an excellent rant by an ex-Muslim in France, who is identified only as Samia. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Résistance Républicaine:
I am not an apostate from Islam, I am a free French citizen!
December 13, 2020
[Photo caption: The spoofs are out! Their indignation is variable geometry. We never see them denounce the serious attacks on the freedom of those who disbelieve in Islam and live in a country decreed Islamic. Curiously, never!]
What happens in Muslim countries for all those who don’t believe in Islam? Atheists, agnostics, Christians…What happens? Surely not what happens to Muslims in France!
While in our country, where freedom of religion is consecrated, where each can exercise his religion without any fear, whatever the professional liars say, apostates from Islam, infidels, are, in Muslim lands, mistreated, persecuted, hunted like animals, every day, in deafening silence, deafening! Who speaks of it? Nobody!
On the other hand, with each day that passes, we are bombarded, we are hit with the poor Muslim victims, the good joke of Islamophobia. Yes, a joke, a farce, a complete deception. France has been totally transformed, to my chagrin, in contact with followers of Mohammed. Endless mosques, halal butchers, streets infested by veils, all kinds of beards, and so on. Oh yes, and not to forget all the incessant demands for accommodations, which are increasingly satisfied. We want this, and we want that, and then this, and then that. It never stops! And incidentally, when we are not happy, a little cut here and there, and voilà. And to top it all off, the professional mourners, the dhimmis on service go into action at the slightest critique of all the mess brought about, created by a portion of the followers of the Lord Mohammed.
There is no way to get a word in edgewise when it involves those who call on Islamic dogma. The disciples of Mohammed have the boulevards to impose their doctrine. It is flagrant when you see all the accommodations made for their pleasure, when one lists all the waivers given to them, even if these go against the essence of French values. It is an incredible thing in a country like France, all those who find fault, in every manner, muzzled, ordered to return to the ranks of dhimmitude.
Those who are anti-Islam are left in the lion’s den when those who never cease imposing their vision of the world are supported with force by much of the media, anti-racism associations (or rather followers of stupidity), as well as political parties on the right as well as the left, without forgetting a good portion of our dear elected officials. Don’t forget those. They are so charming when it comes to defending the indefensible, and so acerbic with those looking truth in the face. Islam is a deadly doctrine.
I should not forget to say that on our territory, the same as with any Western country, a believer in Islam is called a Muslim. He is respected in his belief. He lives his faith normally, nothing is imposed upon him. On the contrary, we bend over backward that he may continue to be what he wants to be. We don’t call him a renegade, infidel, apostate, ungodly, kafir, or whatnot. Why? Because we are not in the presence of a totalitarian system like that of Islam, which imposes its teaching upon everything. We are in a secular country where each can believe in what he wants, yes, yes, even the tsetse fly if he likes. We are in a country where religious affairs are a private matter, of freedom for each person. It is the exact opposite, as opposed to Islamic doctrine, which imposes itself on all individuals, both in the private sphere as well as public. All human laws are inspired directly by the Koran, from sharia. Each precept is obligatory; there is never a dispensation. Everything is taken as-is without asking questions.
Moreover, in Islamic countries, one does not talk of individuals, citizens, or very little. One speaks of Mohammedans, the believers, the faithful, the Muslims, which amounts to saying that one could not be anything else.
