The danger of Muslim radicals entering the country has been a concern for some time now as terrorists continue to spread their message of hate. Now a new trend among Muslim police in France has many citizens rightfully concerned.
Israel International News reported Monday that Muslim police in France refused to protect synagogues, a dangerous sign suggesting that support for jihad is penetrating law enforcement.
The site referred to a report by the Gatestone Institute deatiling information obtained from a leaked confidential memo from the Department of Public Security that cited 17 cases of police officers who had become radicalized between 2012 and 2015.
As of January 2016, the anti-terrorist unit of the French interior ministry stated 8,250 radical Islamists were living in France, a 50 percent increase since just last year.
Some of the men who have become radicalized joined the Islamic State group in Syria, while others have worked their way into society, including law enforcement agencies and the armed forces.
The fact that radicalized policemen are armed and have access to official databases was obviously cause for anxiety among France’s Jewish communities — an anxiety that should be taken very seriously.
Policemen who refuse to protect the people in their communities are not what we need to see in the West.
It also makes GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s suggestion of a temporary moratorium on allowing Muslims into America until they can be properly vetted sound like a very good idea.
Without a proper system in place to determine who is dangerous and who isn’t, it’s like playing a game of Russian roulette. Unfortunately, we have a president who believes Islam is a religion of peace and doesn’t take the threat of radical Islamists seriously.
(ARUTZ SHEVA) Muslim police in France refuse to protect synagogues as growing support for Jihad is affecting law enforcement, according to a Gatestone Institute report.
The report claims that a leaked confidential memo from the Department of Public Security, published by Le Parisien, detailed 17 cases of police officers radicalized between 2012 and 2015, noting that the police officers listen to and broadcast Muslim chants while on patrol.
According to the anti-terrorist unit of the French Interior Ministry, as of January 2016, France is already host to 8,250 radical Islamists (a 50% increase in one year). Some have gone to Syria to join ISIS while others have infiltrated all levels of society, including the police and the armed forces.
Some of these police officers have openly refused to protect synagogues or to observe a minute of silence to commemorate the deaths of Jewish victims of terrorist attacks.
The fact that police officers are armed and have access to police databases only intensifies the anxiety among France’s Jewish communities.
One policewoman allegedly incited terrorism on Facebook, calling her uniform a “filthy rag of the Republic” while wiping her hands on it. Moreover, after the January 2015 attacks on Charlie Hebdo and the Hypercacher kosher supermarket, which left 17 people dead, the same officer wrote on her Facebook page: “Masked attack led by Zionist cowards… They need to be killed.”
“This is just the first hint of what is to come,” writes Daniel Greenfield of the FrontPage. “At least they’re not bombing (the synagogues). Yet.”
While the Parisian police headquarters claim that these cases are rare, they decided to review on a weekly basis any behavior that oversteps the principle of separation of church and state, such as that of Muslim officers who appear to be leaning toward radicalization.
