France: Teacher receives death threats after criticism of Islam


PARIS. In France, a teacher received death threats after warning of the growing influence of Islamism in the country. The philosophy teacher Didier Lemaire says he is now under police protection, reported the AFP news agency. The Versailles prosecutor said they are investigating the threats.

Lemaire published a letter in November following the murder of the teacher Samuel Paty by an Islamist last year. In it he accused the French government of not having an effective strategy against Islamism. In his 20 years as a teacher in a Paris suburb, he had seen how its influence had grown.

On Sunday, the teacher described the situation in his area to the broadcaster BFM-TV. “There are no more mixed hairdressing salons. Women are not tolerated in the cafes.” After the Jewish residents of the suburb had left it because of pressure from the Islamists, it was now directed against moderate Muslims and atheists, lamented Lemaire.

France was again rocked by Islamist attacks last year . In a church in Nice, a man from Tunisia killed three people. Shortly afterwards, in Avignon, the police shot and killed a suspect who was armed with a pistol and a knife and threatened passers-by and shouted "Allahu Akbar".
