Jihad is on the march. In the Middle East, Islamic jihad slowly dismantles the Arab nations formed by the West’s Picot-Sykes agreement of 1916 (Zalman Shoval, “A flood of Gallic gall in Paris”, Israel HaYom, June 6, 2016). In Europe, Jihadists threaten to disrupt euro 2016, soccer’s giant international tournament hosted this year by France, June 10-14, 2016 (Michel Moutot, “French jitters swell over jihadists turning soccer tourney into target”, timesofisrael, June 7, 2016). For Christian nations, Jihadists calls for murder against infidels to celebrate Ramadan, June 5-July 5, 2016 (Robert Spencer, “Islamic State threatens jihad murders in US, Europe this month”, jihadwatch, June 4, 2016).

France has a Jihad problem (John Bowen, “Three Reasons France Became a Target for Jihad”, time, January 8, 2015). It’s losing to Jihad (Claire Sargent, Katy Lee, “The French town that lost 15 boys to jihad”, politico, April 18, 2016). Because of its fear of Jihad, France turns its attention to Israel (Guy Millière, “Jihad in France: It's Just Beginning”, gatestoneinstitute, January 26, 2015).  

France says it wants to help Israel  (“France felt 'compelled to act' on Middle East peace talks”, guardian, June 3, 2016). Don’t be fooled. This new French peace push is not French altruism. It’s French desperation.

The French have good reason to feel desperate. Last year, Muslim jihadists in France murdered more people in France than were killed by terrorism in the country during the entire 20th century (George Igler, “The French Appetite for Appeasement”, gatestoneinstitute, June 4, 2016). The French are—and have been--at a complete loss (Soeren Kern, “France's Politically Correct War on Islamic Terror”, gatestoneinstitute, November 16, 2015). They can’t stop the attacks. They now fear jihadists will collapse their showcase euro 2016 soccer-fest (Igler, ibid).

On top of jihad, France has a Muslim crime epidemic (Onan Coca, “Muslim Refugees Attack White Pedestrians in France – Until One Victim Goes for His Gun!”, eaglerising, January, 2016). Most of France cowers in fear (ibid).

The French claim they’ve enacted new initiatives to curb Muslim crime (Igler, ibid). But then the French allow these anti-crime initiatives to get pushed aside by other efforts aimed at placating the Muslim communities which spawn the crime (Igler, ibid).

In France, the left hand (political correctness and appeasement) cancels what the right hand (the police) tries to do. The result is that migrant Muslim gangs continue to terrorize French towns, stampede French motorways, or conduct mass armed brawls in Paris with little fear of intervention from either security services or the law (Igler, ibid).

France appeases Muslim leaders at the same time it packs armed soldiers into Paris (P. David Hornik, “France, plagued by terror, looks to solve Israel’s problems”, frontpagemag, June 5, 2016). It implements a state of national emergency (ibid). Nothing helps. Muslims riot through the streets of Paris crying, ‘Death to the Jews, death to the Jews!’ (Marie Brenner, “The troubling question in the French Jewish community: is it time to leave?”, hive, August 2015).

Today’s France is unrecognizable. It’s a France being slowly torn apart by a plague of terror, Muslim crime and domestic unrest (Hornik, above, ibid). This is the France that suggests to Israel, ‘we’ll help you’ (achieve peace).

Don’t believe it. France doesn’t help Israel—or Jews (Caroline Glick, “Our World: France’s war against the Jews”, jerusalempost, October 20, 2016). France proved its anti-Jewish/anti-Israel bona fides just seven weeks ago when it voted at the UN to deny all Jewish connection to Judaism’s historic Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel (Lea Speyer, “French Jewish Leaders Decry Country’s Support of UNESCO Resolution Denying Jewish Ties to Temple Mount”, thealgemeiner, April 28, 2016).

This ‘peace’ push doesn’t sound like a way to ‘help’ Israel. It sounds like a desperate attempt by France to show its Muslim residents that France can be as anti-Israel as the Muslim.

France fears its Muslims. It knows it’s a Ramadan target (Neha Singh, “Euro 2016 football championship potential target of terror attacks in France, warns US”, internationalbusinesstimes, June 1, 2016). It is very afraid. It believes that pressuring Israel will appease its Muslim population (Bassam Tawil, “What France and Europe Might Learn”, gatestoneinstitute, November 15, 2015).

France has one foot soaking in a multicultural cesspool, and a second foot about to step on a religious land mine. When it appeases Muslim anger while trying to fight Muslim crime and Jihad, it looks more like Keystone Kops than a nation ruled by law.  

France shouldn’t be pressuring Israel. It should be begging Israel for help to address its out-of-control Muslim population.

There was a Ramadan attack in Tel Aviv Wednesday night (David Rosenberg, “4 dead in Tel Aviv shooting attack”, Arutz Sheva, June 8, 2016). But Tel Aviv isn’t France. Israel knows how to react to these attacks. France doesn’t.

Israel doesn’t need France’s help. France needs Israel’s help.
