PARIS (RNS) In this weekend's regional elections, the fledgling Union of French Muslim Democrats party seeks to counter a rising tide of Islamophobia and give France’s five million Muslims a greater political voice.

    The National Front will win the French elections, definitely. It’s just as the Submission book predicted, but France is forewarned and forearmed with the knowledge that they should vote National Front to prevent an Islamic Repiblic of France (Sixth French Republic).

    Recently polling last month showed that National Front would get 30% in the regional elections coming up. Polls also showed that Marine Le Pen would get 33% in the first round and 54% during the second round of the 2017 presidential election.

    Recent events had turned the French people towards French nationalism, Nationalism, National conservatism, Conservatism, Social Conservatism, Right Wing populism, Populism, Anti Immigration, Anti Globalism, Protectionism, Souveranism, and Euroscepticism. France is undergoing an Islamist terror crisis.

  • I wonder what it would take to turn them toward their own Church, to repent, to return? To give up the false notion of liberty that has caused them and still causes them such misery, and embrace again the sweet yoke of the commandments, the aristocracy of virtue, the celebration of sexual purity?

    It’s my humble thought that if France were to take this course they would begin to reproduce again. They would then not need immigrants and would allow no more. And the fire of the unsatisfied would die down, there being less daily and hourly excruciating provocation.

    Good God how many times must the world try nationalism in its various mutations and drop it in horror, only to pick it up again! Please let’s turn back to God, the Christian God, the One who made nature and never disagrees with nature.
