France President Emmanuel Macron has presented his plan to fight against radical Islamism while delivering his long-awaited speech, as he mentioned the responsibilities of the Republic in what he described as the phenomenon of “separatism.”
President Macron who was joined by several ministers said, “We ourselves have built our own separatism” while denouncing the “ghettoization” of neighborhoods which “the Republic allowed to happen.”
“We have built a concentration of misery and hardship. We have concentrated populations according to their origins, their social backgrounds, we have not recreated enough diversity, not enough economic and social mobility” and “on our setbacks, our cowardice, they built their project,” Macron said referring to Islamist organizations “whose ultimate goal is complete control.”
Speaking about “the soil” on which this “Islamist separatism” was built, Macron said “the inadequacies of our integration policy.” As for France’s “colonial past”, certain “traumas” have “still not been resolved with founding facts in the collective psyche.”
President Macron announced the release of a complete law for December 9 amid a promise to work for “the districts where the promise of the Republic has no longer been kept,”
The obligation of neutrality extended to employees of public service delegated companies, the strict limitation of homeschooling or the extension of the grounds for the dissolution of associations.
