French socialists are offering amnesty to Muslim illegals—apparently for political gain.
The following is an excerpt from an article by Soeren Kern:
"The same might be said of the French Socialist Party, which, thanks to ideology and political expediency, is increasingly inclined to accommodate Muslim demands. During his election campaign, Hollande offered an amnesty to all of the estimated 400,000 illegal Muslim immigrants currently in France. He also pledged to change French electoral laws so that Muslim residents without French citizenship would be allowed to vote in municipal elections as of 2014.
"These measures, if implemented, would enable the Socialist Party tighten its grip on political power, both at the regional and national levels. As the politically active Muslim population in France continues to swell, and as most Muslims in the country vote for Socialist and left-wing parties, conservative parties will find it increasingly difficult to win future elections in France."[ Mega-Mosques: "Building a French Islam", Gatestone Institute, July 20, 2012]
James Fulford writes: I always say that while Muslims and Hispanics are very different (and don`t get along historically) Europe`s Muslim problem is very similar to the US`s Latin American one. This business of "Élire un nouveau (musulmane) peuple" for the benefit of the French left is an unusually sharp example.
