An Email from Marianne in France

One of my favorite readers, Marianne, from France, has written an email and permitted me to excerpt some of it for you, which I do without comment, but I have bracketed here and there for clarification. Marianne’s own parenthesis remain untouched. She asked me to “clean up” her grammar, but I think she reads just fine, and very clearly.

May I ask you to pray for us in France, just ordinary decent people who do no have the means to go elsewhere? I do not sleep much. The situation is frightening. I have already lived this kind of events in my life, and I have been many times so anxious about members of my family who lived in Zimbabwe.

I love my country; I have so much sorrow in my heart, so much revolt.

Do not think our media are very informative.

1) To night, [one nights ago, November 7 - admin] one state channel, FR3, has decided not to speak about burned cars. No fire reported=no fire at all. Most people don’t even know that dozens and dozens of little churches all over France have been set on fire during these past years. Our media don’t like the Catholics and as they despise the ordinary French people, they did not want us to put 2 and 2 together.

2) Some nights ago, “youths” threw Molotov cocktails in a bus. People scrambled outside. A poor handicapped woman was sprayed with petrol by the very same thoughtful “youths” and was saved by the bus chauffeur. The poor lady was badly burned.

FR3 channel showed the lady’s 2 daughters, Yaël and Anastasie; they were European and wore no Islamic scarf. They expressed their gratitude to the courageous chauffeur. On another channel, well there was only one daughter… whose name was Fadella and who wore an Islamic scarf! She said that her mother (??) was saved by the courageous “youths”. What do you make of this? Was Fadella an actress? You bet!

It is so insulting for us! But our media are leftist and that’s it.

We had to wait 7 days before they spoke about “Islam”. All the while, our Jak Ben Chirak remained silent. When he deigned to speak, it was to say that we, French people, were responsible, because we have not fully accepted the “immigrants”. I do not know where this man is living! He does not have to go in the metro or to take a bus. He lives in the quartiers chics, like most politicians.

The Islamic immigrants from Maghreb and Africa scorned France and were far too superior to deign to accept us…

When we dare to grumble, when we dare to murmur that Islam is a religion of death, that we do not want to become an Islamic republic, the media and the politicians also scorned us saying we were racist and fascist and anti-arab, and islamophobic, and anti-Semitic. But our money was not scorned upon. (we have to pay to sustain the newspapers which would collapse if it were not for our forced contribution. I pay for abortions, even if I disagree; I have to pay for communist and Trotskyite newspapers, even if I loath them; I have to pay for bad comedians who have no talent)

We pay, with our taxes, scores of “associations” full of communist-islamics and we just have to shut our mouths and say amen. Well, not “amen”; amen is not politically acceptable.

Villepin does not see what I would call “the Islamic touch”in the riots; it was very much lost in translation. The man needs to have his head examined: We all heard : “Allah Akbar! It is Jerusalem here! C’est Jerusalem ici! Attends, on va les péter! On va leur péter la gueule! On va tous les niquer à mort! Allah Akbar!”

The barbarians are poor victims. Right is left, left is right, bad is good and good is bad.

A fortnight ago, Sarkozy and the police had broken up an important network of arms and drugs dealers in the same banlieues. The banlieues live on underground economy : prostitutions, arms and drugs. Do you see a relation with islamic networks? Heaven forbid!

On the 11 November, the thugs have decided to invade Paris, near the Tour Eiffel, aux Champs de Mars. What barbecue will they have? Will they invite our grand vizir ?

To day, I put a piece of paper [a sign] on my coat: “Do not touch anymore to MY France!” Most of the people are blind; women are more observant than man, some people do not even dare to really see what they saw, I don’t care: I just wanted to sow an idea (while saying “Hail Mary”).

A protestant church in Meulan has been put on fire [today, November 8]. Nothing about that in our media. Too many are asleep.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians)

About Elizabeth Scalia

    Although there is the urge to say that France gets what it deserves, still, it is in the heart of Europe, so maybe it would not be a good thing that it get all that it deserves. However, it is often true that people must hit bottom before they are willing to do what is necessary and right. Sometimes stopping such people from hitting bottom merely enables them and stops them from the change that is so necessary.
    So, maybe there is some good in the fact that France is burning. Maybe they will finally wake up to the danger. True, I hope that it will not require an invasion by a sword-wielding Islamic army all they way to Tours, I hope that the French will catch on before then, but I also think that maybe it is a good thing that France burns now to some extent because maybe some Charles Martel will now arise and finally defend Western civilization.

  • Bender B. Rodriguez

    I wonder if the French government allows the sale of books by Oriana Fallaci?

  • GeraldBoSox

    Charles Martel means Charles the Hammer. Hammer of the Turks, that is. In those days, Europe fought back. This is a power grab, this is part of the Islamic attempt to take over Europe. And what does the French government do? Promise 5000 more social workers. These no-good-no-balls liberals will be the end of Europe.

  • Bob Diethrich

    God Bless your friend Marianne. I am so sorry for the good French people who have to suffer under the socialist appeasing idiots who control that nation. As far as Paris burning, I hope someone remembers to get the art works out of the Louvre before it falls into Muslim hands. (You know all those crosses on the works of Caravaggio, Raphael etc. might offend them) Other than that, I could care less. As I said when Chirac’s craven government backstabbed us in Iraq almost three years ago (ostensibly to appease France’s Muslim population HA HA) I hope the blow up the Eiffel Tower! Maybe these people will wake up! Maybe not!

  • Mr.Atos

    My fear is that we are seeing another episode of the ongoing European conflagation rising as it has many times before, sucking the world like oxygen into its inferno while the great doomed promethian Pheonix perishes again.

    Thanks to you and your friend,Anchoress for manning the tower and sharing the truth with us.

  • GeraldBoSox

    Chirac actually is not a Socialist, but a conservative. But I guess in France, even conservatives are socialists.

    May the Lord shower protection and blessings on Marianne, her family, her church and all the good people of France who are distressed at the anti-Christian, Anti-Semitic, and pro-Muslim tendencies.

    The fact that the gov’t is caving to the “youths” is not a good sign. They are refusing to do the hard thing and realize a viper nest has grown fat and mean in their midst. It’s time to clean house, not give the viper a nicer home and tastier suppers.

    Marianne is a hero for wearing her sign, knowing that this could get her stoned by “disaffecged youths”. (Read: hooligans, thugs, junkies and Islamists.)


  • Mir

    BTW, I have a hard time believing these youths are as poor as they’r claiming.

    From what I’ve read, the welfare subsidies in France are hardly starvation levels. Women with kids can get close to 2K a month, not including the free healthcare and rent subsidies. That’s hardly scrabbling for food and clothing money.

    The youths I’ve seen on tv are wearing clean, stylish clothes–Izod shirts, jeans, designer sneakers. Some have cell phones. That’s not poor in my book. Sorry.

    And how well off would they be back home in North Africa??? Oh, yeah. Really well off, right?

    I’m not buying the “We’re poor and need help” crap. I am buying the “We’re ignorant, enslaved by a false religion, and our youth respect no one and are lazy, drug-dealing bums.”

    I would be curious to know if the Vatican has made any comment one way or another about the situation. Does anyone know? I couldn’t find any by searching Google News with the obvious keywords.
    -In many ways, this is as much an acid test for the Church and the new Pope as it is for the secular governments.

    -What are their attitudes toward the now unavoidable fact of a major presence in Europe of Europeans who are both native-born (whatever their ethnic heritage) and Islamic (like the two teens who were electrocuted)?

  • Bender B. Rodriguez

    They show a French TV newscast here in D.C. every night, and they spent half of tonight’s program on it, but everyone that they talked to either said that they could not understand why this was happening, or they were criticizing the “unnecessary” and “overly militaristic” comments of some of the few French government officials that have a pair. Also, not once did I hear the words “Islamic” or “Muslim” when the reporters, officials, or interviewees discussed the matter.
    Clearly, the French still have a long way to go. However, of course, it is all Bush’s fault. If it weren’t for that damned cowboy, who caused all this tension by illegally invading a peaceful Iraq, those French Muslims would now be holding hands and passing out flowers to people!

    Well, afterall, Muhammed(PBUH) once visited (or contemplated that he did) Europe–so it is rightfully Muslim property. Just as are all those 5000- year-old Hindu shrines.

    It time the real people of France rise up and boot the Leftist trash out of the country. I’ve heard the interviews with “the immigrants” where they say this is Algeria, or the Sudan, or Jordan. They have not immigrated, they have invaded. They never plan to assimilate. Wake up before it is too late.

    Oh, and P.S.:

    Uhhhhh, speaking of power, France gets 80% of its power from nukes. Are these idiots sufficiently securing those plants with whatever lame military they do have?
