France: What will Sarkozy do about Polygamy?

Sarkozy opposes polygamy

* So far he has been making the right noises. Of course, every Western politician should oppose polygamy, but in an age when it is widely tolerated in Europe, Sarkozy’s statement stands out. Here is a rough-and-ready translation (corrections gratefully accepted) of his French statement (thanks to Dhimmi Watch)


Question: What do you think of polygamy?
Answer: I respect all cultures throughout the world, but so that it is quite clear: if I am elected President of the Republic, I will not accept women being treated as inferior to men. The French Republic holds these values: respect for women, equality between men and women. Nobody has the right to hold a prisoner, even within his own family. I say it clearly, that polygamy is prohibited in the territory of the French Republic. I will fight against female genital mutilation and those who do not wish to understand that the values of the French Republic include freedom for women, the dignity of women, respect for women — they do not have any reason to be in France. If our laws are not respected and if one does not wish to understand our values, if one does not wish to learn French, then one does not have any reason to be on French territory.

  1. If only he can get his ideas through parliament. I’m just thinking back to the right to discharge the first two years legislation that Chirac tried to pass that resulted in car burnings until he backed down.

  2. They’re electing their parliament in June. Let’s wait until then.

    If anyone tries burning any more cars then Sarko will sweep them up.

    Hopefully deport those who can be deported and the rest off to the borstal.

    Things cannot continue as they have been going on for far too long already.

  3. Sarkozy is indeed saying the right things. I hope he gets things done, because he has one hell of an uphill climb.

    That last picture is rather frightening-looks like a march of mummies!
