Civil War in France

Posted on the 11 January 2015 by Calvinthedog
As most Muslim countries are riled in civil war of some sort or another, and Israel is also involved in civil war (more or less), so now is France. In other words, this is not terrorism anymore. This is civil war in France. What is going on in France now looks more and more like an armed Islamist insurgency. Look at all of the attacks over simply the last month in France (including a rash around Christmas) and you will see what I mean.

Yemen, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Mali, Nigeria, Cameroon, Somalia, Kenya, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Chechnya, the Caucasus, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Xinjiang, Thailand and the Philippines – all of these lands are facing Islamic or Islamist insurgencies of one sort or another.

In the case of  Yemen,, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Mali, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Chechnya, the Caucasus, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, the Islamists are fighting against or trying to overthrow Muslim governments that they feel are insufficiently Islamic.

There is generalized inter-Muslim sectarian conflict in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Pakistan. Most of this is Sunni vs. Shia.

In Israel, Islamists are apparently trying to overthrow non-Muslim rule over what they see as their lands.

In Nigeria, Kashmir, Xinjiang, Thailand and the Philippines, Islamists are separatists fighting for independence for their regions from a non-Muslim national state.

In Kenya and now France, Islamists are fighting against non-Muslim states who have intervened in various wars in Muslim lands.

Cameroon is just spillover from the Nigerian conflict.

It is time to quit calling what happens in France “terrorism.” They are dealing with the same thing Israel is dealing with – an armed Islamist insurgency.
