Marches & Demonstrations in Paris Demanding a Referendum on Immigration

According to a report of Riposte Laique, the French website dedicated to stopping the gradual Islamization of France and Europe, Daniel Pipes will be present at the manifestations to be held in Paris on Sunday, 9 March, 2014.

The following is my translation of the report showing how the French people, who are extremely concerned about the impact of the continuous Islamic immigration, appreciate the expression of solidarity as manifested in the presence of an American intellectual who through his writings, has been warning the West about the true nature of Islam.

“The organizers of the marches have learnt that the famous American journalist Daniel Pipes will be present at the demonstrations demanding a Referendum on Immigration. Daniel Pipes is a university graduate, and researcher on Middle East subjects.  He is the author of 12 books on the Middle East, Islam, and terrorism that have been translated into 35 languages. He is the founder and president of Middle-East Forum (MEForum), an important organization based in Philadelphia. It specializes in studies of the Middle East and Islam, and the menace facing the West from these sources. MEForum have 14 full-time members, as well as 25 occasional contributors. Due to his expertise, Daniel Pipes has participated in 110 television discussions and 450 radio shows on Islam, from 11 September, 2001 to 11 September, 2002. He has also served as an advisor during five presidential campaigns.”

In order to better understand the reason for the planned marches in Paris, and the demands for a popular referendum on immigration, I’m adding the following explanation gleaned from another French source. The request for the petition requesting the referendum was launched on 12 February, 2014. Having taken notice of a recent referendum on immigration in neighboring Switzerland, they entitled their petition:

Massive Immigration: We Also Want to Vote in France!

This petition will be delivered to the following:

Jean-Marc Ayrault, Prime Minister

François Hollande, President of the Republic

Claude Bartolone, President of the National Assembly

Jean-Pierre Bel, President of the Senate

The following is a translation of the petition:

“Having taken note of the outlawing of minarets, and the expulsion of foreign criminals, Switzerland has demonstrated to all Europeans, and especially to France, the importance of initiating a popular initiative for a referendum to bring to an end, mass immigration. For the last forty years, we have been impacted by this massive immigration, without having ever been consulted. This must stop. We do want a referendum!

“The arrogance of the European Commission and of the French Government is unsupportable and denies the intelligence and sovereignty of the Swiss and the European peoples.

“Let’s never allow any person to decide in our place, the future of our people. This is why we are asking you to sign this petition to require the calling of a referendum about immigration, as well as all other important topics, now that we have been inspired by the Swiss model.”

I must explain that after the Swiss referendum limiting the immigration of foreigners, the European Union (EU based in Brussels) issued a strong criticism of Switzerland’s decision, and threatened to take measures about commercial and travel regulations between the EU countries and Switzerland.

The petition encouraged the readers in France, to sign the petition.
