Sarkozy: 19 arrested in French police raids

Nineteen people have been arrested in a series of police raids on suspected Islamist networks, French President Nicolas Sarkozy told French radio Friday morning.

The raids come a week after gunman Mohammed Merah, who killed seven people, was shot dead after a 31-hour siege in the southwestern city of Toulouse.

Sarkozy told Europe 1 the decision to act had been taken by the interior minister and foreign minister "to deny the entry of certain people to France" who did not share the country's values.

"It's not just linked to Toulouse, it's all over the country, it's in connection with a form of radical Islam and it's in agreement with the law," he said.

    “Multiculturalism has failed.” French President Nicolas Sarkozy, 11 February 2011

    Before WWII, France was a global empire and less than 1% Muslim, spreading western values to the rest of the world. Then along came the political left, Socialists. Today France is a pathetic backwater spreading influence nowhere, with about 5 million Muslims in a population of 60 million, or about 9%. It’s expected to be 15% by 2030. The third world is invading and influencing France.

    Leftists destroyed France. America, this is happening to you.

    Invaders of yesteryear bearing arms were repelled at, e.g. the Battle of Tours. Then throughout the West invaders discovered if you just walk in, unarmed, the leftists of Europe as well as America would lavish welfare upon you if you promised to vote leftist in exchange. Consequences to society be damned so long as do-gooder liberals retained power. The destiny of the left is societal failure.

  2. better yet

    @pork test. Nope. The Jew would sell a blemished lamb to an unsuspecting Jew, who would then take the blemished lamb to the High Priest for inspection, who would notice the blemish and reject the sacrificial lamb. Afterwards the first Jew would split the take with the priest. (these are the fellers Jesus took a whip to)

  3. better yet @Montanan

    That still doesn't explain the "moral majority" Rat Wang Republicans trying to convince everyone that Israel is God's chosen nation and the Israeli MOSSAD are God's little helpers. Care to comment on how this ever came to be, and why even modern Americans buy into it?

    Yes @ banasy

    A person with a criminal record commits a hate crime and he is one muslim from among the 5 million plus French muslims. And we see folks painting the entire community with a brush dipped in the poisonous concoction of hat, bigotry and ignorance.

  11. God hates violence.

    Anyone have a probelm with that? God abhors violence, actually. (according to his word, The Bible that you, even thoug claiming to be a true believer, are ignorant of. Even if the bible were b/s, shouldn't you believers know of it and prove it?) So how is it then, that God abhors violence and you, YOU who claim to defend "God's chosen Isreal[i mossad] decide to by Grand theft Auto for your 12 yr. old? World Wresting Federationfor your tike. UFC for your son of an American crackhead Michael Vick pit bulldog fighter. 700 virgins for your Hugh Hefner/magic Johnson. An *A* on that SAT test they let you cheat on. (and u thot u was sMarT) Gehhhhhhht a clue, lady. America is f'ed.
