France: Marine Le Pen Charged for Comparing Muslims to Nazis
National Front head Marine Le Pen charged with inciting racial hatred for comparing Muslims praying outdoors to Nazi occupation.
French National Front (NF) leader Marine Le Pen is being charged with inciting racial hatred for comparing Muslims praying outdoors to the Nazi occupation of France.
The charge dates back to 2010, at which time there were reports that mosques in in Paris and other cities were overcrowded, leading to people praying in the streets.
During a party rally, she said, “I’m sorry, but for those who really like to talk about the Second World War, if we’re talking about occupation, we can also talk about this while we’re at it, because this is an occupation of territory. It’s an occupation of swaths of territory, of areas in which religious laws apply… for sure, there are no tanks, no soldiers, but it’s an occupation all the same and it weighs on people.”
