Islam en Europe

Islam en Europe


The fact that I am a Muslim does not mean that I feel the need to defend myself
regarding what is happening with respect to Islamic State
or Isis because, quite simply, for me, those persons are not Muslims. What is Islam in our countries? It is, above all, up to you,
our Muslim fellow citizens to be at the forefront because you are the ones most concerned Because the first victims
of radicalisation are Muslims As a European
I do indeed have the moral duty to take position in relation to what a number of
groups are doing in relation to this extremist violence … But I should not do it to answer you
when you address me as you I should do it with you when together
we say us meaning that from a
a certain moment the issue is the sense of belonging to Europe the fact that Islam today is not considered in the underlying sub-conscious of political discourse as a European religion There are people
whom you have not mentioned There are people who massacre who catch homosexuals
and throw them off balconies who massacre women in the name of Islam And those among us
who are Muslims ought to suffer from this problem There is a religious discourse
by a certain number of people and we have to take position
in relation to it For my part, I am never going to forbid
a Salafi literalist from speaking but I have a moral duty
to dissociate myself from that discourse to dissociate myself from that discourse
that puts everybody in hell except us There is a paradox the radicalism from which terrorism originates and Islamophobia have the same cultural root That means that Islam is violence That is the terrorist’s ideology That is the idea of Islam held by Islamophobic Europeans held by Islamophobic Europeans
It’s the same thing all the time It’s the same thing all the time over and over again but what is implicit in what
is left unsaid is that your sense of belonging is brought into question because they call it into question … and that is why we do not have
a clear policy from that point of view For my part, I say our responsibility is to put an end to you and us You means us
We means you We are the ones! We! Together!
