New French group, The Generation of National Identity, occupies mosque site near the site of Charles Martel’s victory in 732
as though Génération Identitaire
meant what they said
about starting a war against the anti-French French order.
This is exactly the kind of thing that needs to be done. For the last sixty years, the peoples of the West have passively and silently accepted the mass immigration into their countries of unassimilable non-Westerners. And since they never opposed the immigration, why should the immigrants think they had any problem with it? And why should their governments think they had any problem with it? But if the Western peoples begin to say, loud and clear, “We don’t want you here,” everything will change. This is a sign of life.
French far-right group storms site of new mosque

Around 60 members of a French far-right group occupied the site of a future mosque on Saturday to protest against the influence of Islam in France. Their act was widely condemned by politicians and Muslim groups.
According to French media, protesters from a group called Generation Identity occupied the building site in a suburb of the town of Poitiers, western France, at around 6am.
They climbed onto the building’s roof and displayed a banner marked with “732 generation identity” in reference to the year 732, when Charles Martel halted the advance of the invading Muslim army to the north of Poitiers.
The group makes their views clear on their website, which bears the statement: “We do not want more immigration from outside Europe or new mosque construction on French soil”.
France’s Interior Minister Manuel Valls blasted Saturday’s dawn raid, describing it as “hateful provocation”. [LA replies: Of course it’s hateful. According to current Western understanding, for white Western people to exist and to want to exist is exclusion and hate. For white Western people to be displaced, demonized, raped, and murdered is inclusion and love.]
The protesters apparently took to social media site Twitter, declaring they would not be leaving the mosque until they were removed by the authorities.
But the demonstrators left the site around 1pm after reaching an agreement with police. Three members of the group were subsequently arrested.

France’s Interior Minister Manuel Valls denounced Saturday’s dawn raid, describing it as “hateful provocation”, while Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault “strongly condemned” the act, saying it was against “the French Republic and its values”.
Both the country’s ruling Socialist Party and the Communist Party have called for Generation Identity to be dissolved. Prosecutors in Poitiers are examining whether to press charges against the group for “holding an unauthorized protest and inciting racial hatred”.
France’s Muslim groups were left shocked and angered by the occupation. The French Council of Muslim Faith (CFCM) said the group’s “wild” act undermined cohesion between France’s religious communities.
“This occupation was wild and illegal and was accompanied by the shouting of hostile slogans against Islam and Muslims. It is the first time this has happened in the history of our country,” said a statement from the CFCM, France’s main Muslim organisation.
“We are deeply concerned about this new form of anti-Muslim violence which demonstrates, once again, the willingness of these factions to risk our national cohesion by inciting hatred and division,” the statement read.
