Muslims defy outdoor prayer ban in France

Muslims defy outdoor prayer ban in France

Not to worry: only ‘hundreds’ defied the ban.  Geraldine has more….

What a surprise. In this case the Muslims appear sure that the French will ultimately bend to their will. And why not? They have so many times before. “Muslims defy outdoor prayer ban in France,” from Newscore, September 16:

PARIS — Hundreds of Muslims defied a French ban on outdoor prayer — which came into force Friday –and took to the streets and sidewalks of Paris to pray.

The frog is done…..

The French government announced Thursday it was banning praying outside, with officials pledging to enforce the ban from Friday.

But 200 Muslims ignored the ban and prayed on the streets in the neighborhood of La Goutte d’Or, Le Parisien newspaper reported.

French interior minister Claude Gueant said he had nothing against Islam but wanted it out of the public eye because France was a secular state.

He added, “Street prayers must stop because they hurt the feelings of many of our compatriots who are shocked by the occupation of the public space for a religious practice.”

Although officials would persuade people to pray in mosques, Muslims who continued to pray in the street would be arrested, Gueant warned.

The ban angered French Muslim leaders who said Muslims only prayed outdoors because of a lack of space in mosques in France….

  1. “because of a lack of space in mosques in France….”

    Well, go back to somewhere where there is plenty of space to pray to pagan gods. The deserts of Sowdi Arabia spring to mind…plenty of space there…

  2. The ban angered French Muslim leaders who said Muslims only prayed outdoors because of a lack of space in mosques in France….

    Simple solution. Bugger off back to where there are mosques a-plenty
    ( don’t even think of coming to the UK!)

  3. “Street prayers must stop because they hurt the feelings of many of our compatriots who are shocked by the occupation of the public space for a religious practice.”

    It should never have been tolerated, not because “they hurt the feelings of many”, but because it is AGAINST FRENCH LAW of secularity. French politicians, like everywhere, lack the basic courage to enforce their laws when it comes to muslims.

    I am also completely disgusted (but not surprised) by the news coverage of this (especially the BBC and France2) who blatantly join the islamists in their lies that they have “no space”. France, shamefully, arranged for these arab muslim law-brakers to have a HUGE mosque, even in the quartier in which they still used the streets yesterday. And contrary to French law this was done not only at the poor old French tax-payer’s expense, but to add insult to insury, the huge buildings and forecourts that were transformed into a gigantic mosque are former French military quarters.

    These “people” will not rest until Notre Dame de Paris will be “Notre Mosque de Paris”.

    YUK !

  4. The French are getting payback for the great slaughter of 1789.
    Now,if these were Christians praying in the streets,they would all be put in jail. Christians can’t even pray quietly in state run schools. If we reject the True God,He’ll give us a false one. If you don’t want Christ,then meaningless Atheism or Allah,take your choice.

  5. Muslims pray in the streets facing mecca to insult the infidel!
    while their heads face mecca their butt holes faces the unbeliever …its called the Islamic brown eye…If someone wants to disrespect you they turn around and expose their buttocks to you…Islam is good at this symbolic stuff, like building a mosque where they were victorious killing infidels…..symbolism is a BIG part of Islamism

  6. Yet more evidence that the muslimaniacs are intent to occupy and destroy the Western way of life. And if you resist you are labelled an islamophobe. A ridiculous word…Im not scared of Islam, I just dont like it.
