Attempt to squelch dissent in France

The news became public only a few days ago - French authorities asking the European Parliament to lift the immunity of far-right leader Marine Le Pen so that she can be prosecuted for inciting racial hatred.

In 2010, the president of the National Front party likened Muslim street prayers in France to the Nazi occupation, sparking widespread condemnation.

Many Muslim leaders have blamed Le Pen’s fiery rhetoric on Islam and immigration for a  rise in Islamic intolerance and xenophobia in France. But she insists she is neither a racist nor xenophobic, but simply a patriot.

"I want you to understand that there is no reason to ask the French to accept things that no other people in the world would accept. It's as simple as that,” she tells Al Jazeera's Folly Bah Thibault.

“I feel hatred towards nobody, but I have immense love for my people and for my country that I will defend in all circumstances."

Wow, good for her! I suppose the increase of intolerance of Islam by the.French public has nothing to do with Islam trying to change French culture or the treatment of women or violence involving Muslims or refusal to tolerate other religions, yada yada yada.....

I beg to differ. I am sure that I have seen pictures of Muslims praying in New York city streets blocking traffic.

'Many Muslim leaders have blamed Le Pen’s fiery rhetoric on Islam and immigration for a rise in Islamic intolerance and xenophobia in France. But she insists she is neither a racist nor xenophobic, but simply a patriot.'

They were merely seeking an excuse.

We in the West are constantly required to accept things that countries and peoples in the rest of the world refuse to and would never countenance.
Some we do gladly - equal rights for women, freedom of religion and expression, the rule of law.
Some not so gladly.
