French Culture or French Trash?

In the name of Allah, the Merciful to all, the Compassionate

Throughout my entire life I have heard about how the French cherish their culture, history, language and cuisine. That the French have been, and are, today’s world leaders in fashion, food, wine, art and architecture. They embrace novelty, new ideas, and manners with enthusiasm as long as they are elegant. If this is true, the French culture should be as deep as an ocean, disturbed by nothing.

In reality, however, any trivial incident can change their psyche overnight. One such example would be the Nice terror attack which took place in July. They claim that a soldier of Islam conveyed the attack, thus qualifying Islam as an invading, and obviously barbaric, culture that needs to be confronted. That picture has nothing in common with reality.

Fear of Islam to Save Christianity

In the name of Allah, the Merciful to all, the Compassionate

Speaking to the Religious News Service, cardinal Raymond Burke said there is “no question that Islam wants to govern the world” and that the only way to save Western civilisation is to return it to its Christian roots. Personally, I prefer to see the western civilization return to Christianity, and replace this evil system of usury and greed. However, using the fear of Islam, as a catalyzer, for such a transition is just immoral.

Cardinal Burke said that while muslims were “lovely people”, their religion teaches that it should dominate the state, and any country with a muslim majority must submit to the Islamic law.

“When they become a majority in any country then they have the religious obligation to govern that country,” the cardinal added. “If that’s what the citizens of a nation want, well, then, they should just allow this to go on. But if that’s not what they want, then they have to find a way to deal with it.”

When asked how the West should respond to increasing Islamisation, Cardinal Burke said:

“I think the appropriate response is to be firm about the Christian origin of our own nation, and certainly in Europe, and the Christian foundations of the government, and to fortify those.”

What the American cardinal said is a fact that we muslims have known for centuries:

Without Islam, Christianity would be long vanished and forgotten; ironically a fear of Islam and Islamophobia are the only tools the leaders of church have to revive it.
