French police have banned a street party whose organizers planned to serve alcoholic cocktails and pork sausages in a heavily Muslim neighborhood of Paris (1).
Organizers said they were holding the party to protest Islam's encroachment on their neighborhood. Muslims have taken over huge swaths of French sidewalks to pray on because, they say, there are not enough mosques. The true problem has nothing to do with a shortage of mosques: the problem is too many Muslims.
Last January I reported on the over-infestation of French streets by Muslims in my article Muslims Take over France.
I do understand how having a sausage and booze party would offend Muslims: first of all, everything offends Muslims, and second of all, staging such a party in a Muslim neighborhood would be like having a 4th of July Party in a Liberal neighborhood here in the States. I mean it would just turn any liberal's stomach to see people celebrating the greatness of this country.
But in both cases, we should not be accommodating to anyone's sensitivities. The French should have a right (but it appears they do not) to celebrate their culture just as patriotic Americans have the right (although liberals wish we didn't) to celebrate ours.
I have advice to French Muslims: pray at home. You do not own French streets - at least, not yet.
Washington Post, Paris police ban pork street party in Muslim area
French police have banned a street party whose organizers planned to serve alcoholic cocktails and pork sausages in a heavily Muslim neighborhood of Paris, authorities said in a statement Tuesday.
The woman who organized the party on Facebook and gives her name as Sylvie Francois denies any ties to the extreme right. She told the free daily Metro newspaper on Tuesday that she had launched the party as a way to "express exasperation."
She complained that the "Islamization" of her working-class neighborhood was "more and more ostentatious," and complained that Muslims now block several streets during Friday prayers.
"It offends my concept of the republic's secularism, I feel increasingly excluded in the neighborhood," Francois said.
