French award winning historian Georges Bensoussan, who earlier warned for the Islamisation of certain districts, has now warned for the increasing tensions in his country.
In an interview, the historian talks about how France’s colonial past creates a culture of guilt and victimhood and therefore causes troubles concerning integration.
“How to integrate into a nation that dismisses its own history and mortifies itself endlessly? The notion of national identity has been caricatured in a machine to exclude….
“In this void, has slipped a crumbling identity vector of violence, a multicultural society (not to be confused with a multi-ethnic society) increasingly synonymous with multi-conflict society.”
Bensoussan talks about France’s no-go zones and how Islamisation causes parallel societies. “There are today in France, more than 500 “problematic” neighbourhoods, named by antiphrasis “sensitive cities”, ravaged by traffic of all kinds and marked by the progression of Salafism.
“Territories are formed outside the nation, reluctant to the Republican law where the authority of the state is sometimes lured.”
According to the top historian the fundamentals of Islam have nothing to do with our world vision.
“If we fail to understand that a war has been declared to us, that it opposes frontally two visions of the world fundamentally incompatible, and that Islam, said fundamentalist, has nothing to do with the ideal of Enlightenment on which our way of life is built, we are going towards a difficult tomorrow.”
And later he says: “It seems to me that evoking a memorial of the victims of terrorism without identifying the source of this violence will remain as the manifestation of our helplessness to face the war that is made to us.”
