France’s hardline anti-burka migration minister denies planning to convert to marry young Muslim girlfriend
Note the slants? Â The minister who is “anti=burka!” Â (how can anyone be anti-burqa this day and age! French professor RaphaÃ«l Liogier just told us that the freedom sack is a sophisticated product, Muslim chic, in fact no different from westernised Buddhists, sic!), Â Eric Besson is depicted as Â some kind of moron, a “hardliner”. Â The Mohammedans who push the burka, FGM, child marriage, Â polygamy etc. must be soft dicks then? Peter Allen, the tool who wrote this puff piece, is certainly not without envy, when he then adds Â “minister denies planning to convert to marry young Muslim girlfriend”…
France’s hardline immigration minister Eric Besson is threatening to sue over hotly denied claims he is about to convert to Islam to marry his young Muslim girlfriend.
The rumours, reported on French news website Bakchich Info, come as the 51-year-old spearheads a campaign againstÂ alien religions and cultures swamping his country.
He has already called for the Muslim burkha to be banned, and wants potential immigrants to take French tests and swear allegiance to the Republic.

This particularly applies to those arriving from Muslim countries who do notÂ share the same values as France’s predominantly Roman Catholic population.
Divorced Mr Besson has admitted that he currently lives with a Paris art school student who is the great-granddaughter of Wassila Bourguiba, the wife of the former Tunisian president, Habib Bourguiba.
The father-of-three’s younger lover was named as Yasmine Tordjman, who is in her 20s.
Before Christmas he travelled to the north African country to meet Ms Tordjman’s mother, prompting speculation that he would re-marry in June.
Islam does not allow mixed marriages, meaning the minister would have to convert from Catholicism to Islam.
But Besson has now released an official statement stating that he ‘deplores having to deny a conversion to a religion which I otherwise respect, I am very attached to the secular character of our Republic.’
Mr Besson said he was considering suing Bakchich Info.
Numerous critics have accused Mr Besson’s nationalistic policies of provokingÂ anti-Muslim feelings across the country.
Earlier this month he refused to grant French citizenship to a North African on the grounds that he forced his wife to wear a full Islamic veil.
A series of national identity debates held at town halls across France have given rise to numerous disparaging comments about the country’s five million strong Muslim community.
Many have appeared on a government website opened up by Mr Besson, who was born in the former French protectorate of Morocco.
On Monday swastikas and racial slurs were painted on the walls of a mosque in the town of Saint-Etienne, in eastern France, with police reporting rising anti-Muslim feeling across the country.
