Former "Charlie Hebdo" author calls for a stronger fight against Islamism

PARIS. Former author of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebo, Patrick Pelloux, has called for a more determined fight against Islamism. His country has so far been "weak against terrorists" and Muslim immigrants. “Only gradually do the French understand the threat we are dealing with,” Pelloux told the Bild newspaper.

French President Emmanuel Macron (En Marche) has long refused to name the problem. After the recent Islamist attacks on a teacher in Paris and churchgoers in Nice , he finally declared war on radical Muslims, said the author, who survived the attack on Charlie Hebdo in January 2015 .

Leftists played into the hands of Islamists
He considers Macron's plan to reform Islam in France to be impossible. That is the task of religion itself. Political Islam is in the process of establishing itself in its country and is trying “to penetrate the political system with the 'Union of Democratic Muslims' (UDMF) party”. Radical Muslims were also looking for pretexts, such as caricatures of Mohammed, to "let war rule", criticized Pelloux.

He considered strengthening secularism to be an effective strategy. “It is actually a very tolerant principle, because it allows everyone to practice their religion, but in private.” The left in France, however, viewed the separation of state and faith as oppression. "These people have a guilty conscience about the colonial history and the Islamists take advantage of that," warned the author.
