The French President said today, Islam can co-exist with secularism, President Francois Hollande said Thursday, warning in a speech seen as preparing the ground for a re-election bid that the anti-terror fight should not undermine French values. The deeply unpopular Hollande has yet to announce whether he will run for a second term next year, but is widely expected to be a candidate. In a passionate plea for tolerance, he defended the country's Muslim minority following a vitriolic debate on the banning of the Islamic burkini swimsuit. 'Nothing in the idea of secularism opposes the practice of Islam in France, provided it respects the law,' Hollande said. Secularism was not a 'state religion' to be used against other religions, he said in the speech in Paris, denouncing the 'stigmatization of Muslims'. Looks like French president Hollande doesn't mind that Islamic radicals have killed 200 plus French citizens since 2014 when the refugee crisis began. This is a leader just like Obama who thinks we should accept a religion to influence the western world, even when it's proven on a weekly and sometimes daily basis that the religion of Islam truly represents evil. This is why it's important for the people of France to oust this man in the upcoming elections and switching over to Le Pen, or the nation of France as we know it will seize to exist. Telling your people to embrace a religion after multiple terrorist attacks in the name of Islam, should only label this man as a traitor who is blind to the enemy.
