When it first appeared it was hidden war blog last month, the call by French retirees who were about to call for a terrorist government sounded like France was on the verge of a civil war.
“France is in danger,” he read in a document signed by hundreds of retired military personnel and at least 18 troops. It condemned “tolerance”, Islam and “groups” outside of towns and cities, which French readers have understood to mean foreigners.
Re-published in the authentic Valeurs Actuelles magazine on the 60th anniversary of the failure of the Soldiers against President Charles de Gaulle in 1961, the phrase was first removed by the Armed Forces as a distraction from the elderly in response.
But the public approval by Marine Le Pen – the far-right leader – who said it was the responsibility of French patriots to “rise up” to save the country – was launched. Criticism by politicians and the Ministry of Defense and a pledge to punish the soldiers who signed the document.
Three weeks later, the agreement in Paris is that France has more to say about French political and social decline than the military, which seems to be an expert, politically neutral and unfit to elevate the government – something has not been seen in western Europe since the Spanish pipeline collapsed. 1981.
“There are no more terrorists in Europe,” said Jean-Yves Camus, a political analyst.
Dominique Trinquand, the former ambassador and spokesman who led the French army at the UN, agreed. “This is not necessary for the military because those who signed today are not members of the military, or a minority,” he said, noting that the judges have decided not to pursue the case out of court.
He also criticized the need for Le Pen’s call for ambassadors to join their right-wing Rassemblement National party, which is being held hostage by President Emmanuel Macron. “The funny thing is that three-quarters of the former signatories are very close to the RN,” he said.
The man with the mind was Jean-Pierre Fabre-Bernadac, a former child-care officer and male and female security guard who oversaw Le Pen’s father-in-law Jean-Marie while the party is called the Front National. And one of the signatories was Christian Piquemal, a former leader of the French Foreign Legion, who was forced to retire from the military five years ago for taking part in illegal immigration demonstrations in Calais.
The officials, who had comments, had a good chance of forming a non-political militant group representing various French nationalities, but their announcements and political affiliations have confirmed that their concerns have spread to the public.
“Even though there were insulting remarks,” Trinquand said, “the concern for law and order and Islamic unrest is an attitude that many French people have made.”
According to a psychological research in the aftermath of the controversy, 58% of French voters – including the majority on the left – supported the soldiers who signed the document. A special 74 percent thinks French people are falling and at least 45% agreed that France “will soon wage a civil war”.
Jean-Daniel Lévy, Harris Interactive’s general manager, who surveyed, said: “Everywhere, French people have the same sentiments as diplomats.
This is a political situation in which the two candidates for France’s presidential election next year are now Macron’s winners – who won four years ago that they will not be “right or left”, but still stand up for Islam and immigrants – and Le Pen.
For Camus, the organization facing the most crisis is not the military that is fighting the jihadis war in the Sahel, but the returning police, who are trying to suppress national protests by the anti-government. yellow dress protesters for more than a year from 2018 and are still at the very end of the war on crime, drugs and terrorism.
“I think the real issue in the coming months is the police,” Camus said. There was a lot of outrage between those earning less money and less weapons, he said, “and all of this is threatening to be killed by a drug dealer during the day”.
Two weeks ago, a Tunisian policeman was killed by a Tunisian Muslim who cut his neck at a police station in Rambouillet, in a series of recent shootings, including the killing of several people at the 2019 Paris police headquarters and beheading. teacher outside his school last year by a Muslim refugee from Chechen.
In April, police unveiled what they see as junior court arrests for assaulting and burning two police officers in Viry-Châtillon south of Paris in 2016.
And last Wednesday, it was the time of a police officer in the southern city of Avignon, who was shot in the street in a drug paraphernalia and the killer escaped, prompting police themselves to march over the weekend this week.
The researchers say Le Pen’s military support has been moving at more than 40%, which is not far from the number of right-handed helpers among young people and young people. For the police, assistance is over 50 percent.
Gérald Darmanin, the interior minister appointed by Macron last year to crack down on crime and terrorism, seems unlikely that the agency needed to celebrate Avignon’s shooting was the police.
Recognizing the great history of the French military and the unmistakable image of the police, he paid tribute to the deceased by comparing the beaten police officers to warriors.
The war on drugs is said to have taken place “because of the soldiers – and the soldiers are the police and the French police. Today, one of the soldiers died as a hero”.
