On October 5, 1961, French cabinet minister, Maurice Papon (died 2007), put in place a curfew covering all “French Muslims from Algeria”. Papon was convicted for 10 years in jail in 1998 for collaborating with Nazis in the so-called “deportation” of 1560 French Jews from Bourdeaux region during WW II and not for his crimes against French Muslims.
Both Jewish-controlled French and western media ignored the massacre as Jews were the main beneficiary of French African colonization – from Black slavery to diamond trade. The Algerian Jews were awarded French nationality during occupation. That’s the reason nearly 140,000 Jews left Algeria after the withdrawal of French Occupation Force in 1962.
The massacre story quickly died, drowned out by fresher alarums and excursions in Europe and elsewhere.
It took 51 years before Paris acknowledged it barbarism against French Muslim citizens. On October 18, 2012, French president Hollande officially paid homage to the Muslim victims of what he termed “a bloody repression” by police.
“On Oct. 17, 1961, Algerians who were protesting for independence were killed in a bloody repression,” Hollande said.
Hollande’s mentioning of French guilt was criticized by anti-immigration parties like the National Front and pro-Israel Jewish groups.
On February 24, 2015, Jewish TIME magazine reported that French Jews are ready to discard their long-standing distrust for the Far Right and vote for the Front National. In January, Rachel Halliburton described how Marine Le Pen’s public condemnation of anti-Semitism had won her votes, as had her insistence that the party was the only one that defends secularity and democracy against Islamisation. A key part of her strategy has been to use the threat of radical Islam to court the sort of people that the far right has traditionally persecuted, including the gay community and the Jewish community.
Last year, French journalist and author Éric Zemmour (Jewish) suggested that in order to solve France’s “Muslim Problem”, like Europe’s “Jewish Problem”, Paris needs to expel country’s entire Muslim population (6-7 million).
The first phase of French Muslim history began in 716 CE when a group of Spanish Muslim soldiers crossed Spanish-French border along Pyrenees Mountains to occupy the city of Norborne. In 721 CE, Muslim forces under the command of Al-Samh ibn Malik conquered the city of Toulouse by defeating Duke Eudes of Aquitaine’s army. Toulouse was the scene of a recent Israeli Mossad’s false flag shooting operation which killed four French Jews at a school. Muslim forces continued their victory march until it reached the city of Lyon and occupied the city of Bordeaux in 731 CE. However, their advance turned into retreat when Muslim army was defeated by Duke Eudes in alliance with Charles Martel near the city of Poitiers in 732 CE.
The second phase began after Christian Crusaders defeated the last Spanish Sultanate in 1942 – consequently, some 150,000 Spanish Muslims who escaped the slaughter, had to seek refuge in south of France and settled there.
The third phase of French Muslim history began over 500 years ago, when France became the first Christian country to establish a diplomatic alliance with the Ottoman empire, and opening doors to diplomats, intellectuals, tourists and students from the Muslim East and North Africa.
