Daring to Tell the Truth
- Before the Muslims invaded the Roman Empire in the 600s Christian provinces like Egypt, Syria and Libya spoke Greek and Latin. After the invasions they worship Allah and speak Arabic. Christians were exterminated, enslaved and the survivors forced to live as second class citizens in their own nation.
(RT News) - French presidential frontrunner Marine Le Pen has compared the surge in asylum seekers coming into Europe to the invasion of Rome by barbarians. The nationalist politician previously landed in hot water when she drew parallels between Muslims in Europe and a Nazi invasion.
“Without any action, this migratory influx will be like the barbarian invasion of the IV century, and the consequences will be the same,” the Front National (FN) leader told supporters during a rally ahead of December’s regional elections in Arpajon, a suburban town in southern Île-de-France, the region that includes Paris.
“We must immediately stop this madness to safeguard our social pact, freedom and identity.”
Over 1 million asylum seekers are expected to arrive in Europe by the end of this year, more than twice as many as last year.
Le Pen blamed both of the mainstream coalitions, former president Nicolas Sarkozy’s center-right UMP, and current leader Francois Hollande’s Socialist party for what she called “only the first wave of coming migrants.”
“Sarkozy opened the door, and Hollande and [Prime Minister Manuel] Valls have taken them off the hinges,” said the 47-year old politician. “The leaders offer to host migrants, without even asking their inhabitants, the same leaders who destroyed Libya, and continue to destabilize Syria.”
Earlier this month, Hollande reversed his previous stance against refugee quotas, and said that the country would take in 24,000 refugees in the next two years. Many will be housed in rural areas, such as Arpajon, where accommodation is easier to come by.
"There are 1.5 million people waiting for social housing in Île-de-France and who will never have the opportunity to be housed in a place like this because of the country’s preferential treatment of foreigners. I say this not to stigmatize these newcomers, but to denounce those responsible for this situation," Le Pen said to loud cheers from the audience.
