French President Francois Hollande claimed recently that Muslim extremism “destroys the principles and values of Islam.”
At the inauguration of a new 100-million-euro Islamic art wing at the world-renowned Louvre museum in Paris Tuesday, French President François Hollande slammed the destruction of UNESCO world heritage sites in Mali by extremists and warned that fanaticism is contrary to the principles of Islam.
Hollande stated: “The honour of Islamic civilisations is to be older, more alive, more tolerant than some of those who claim today to abusively speak on their behalf. It is the exact opposite of obscurantism, which destroys the principles and destroys the values of Islam, bringing violence and hatred.”
So, it’s the Islamic extremist who ”destroys the principles and values of Islam?” It would appear to even the lightly tutored on the subject that these extremists are upholding the principles and values of Islam.
One question: Is he blind, ignorant, or both? On this issue, Francois Hollande sounds like Jorge Bush. Both men are obviously half-wits when it comes to the nature of Islam.
If Western leaders won’t acknowledge that Islam is evil, then the West cannot fight against that evil. As a result, Western Civilization will eventually be subdued by the more assertive and aggressive “religion of peace.”
