The words are strong. The minister of the Interior did not hesitate to shake the spectre of "civil war" to justify the future law on separatism, in that France was " sick of his communitarianism ", in an interview to be published Saturday, July 18, in the Voice of the North. "France is a country where no religion is superior to another. One of the first things that you can do, is to avoid the civil war. And worst of all : the one who was born of the religions, " he told the regional daily. "I think that there are important facts which demonstrate that we are in a moment of confrontation between communities extremely violent ", he added referring to the violence that took place from 12 to 15 June in Dijon, between members of the chechen community and residents in an area deemed sensitive in the city.
Without revealing the content or the guidelines of the future law against separatism announced by the government, Gérald Darmanin argued that this text, which will be presented in September, will act as a remedy against the evils supposed to make "sick" of the country. "When one is sick, or you consider that you are not and your life expectancy is limited, or you are aware and you have to put a name on the disease and find a medication. The country is sick of its communitarianism, and by now a political islam that wants to overturn the values of the Republic ", he explained.
"No faith is above the law"
The minister has blasted helter-skelter, " the foreign funding, the way in which islam is represented in the territory, the way in which certain elected officials, associations, or commentators are in the accommodation ". "Freedom for believers and no faith above the law. Ever. This means or community meals, or claims of inequality between women and men, nor acceptance, nor commonplace", he completed.
Since coming to office, Gérald Darmanin multiplies the outputs muscled against the communalism and political islam. On 8 July, before the Senate, he had, inter alia, that "political islam" was a " mortal enemy to the Republic ". In his interview to the Voice of the North, the Interior minister has also promised that 30 000 cameras pedestrians " to be installed as early as next year each brigade ", as had been referred to the president of the Republic, during his television interview on 14 July.
