French lawmaker suspended for converting to Islam

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association)

Early this week, Marine Le Pen’s National Front suspended its councilor Maxence Buttey, 22, from Noisy-le-grand, eastern Paris suburb for converting to Islam. He committed another crime by sending a video to fellow party members in which he praised Islam’s political and social values as commanded in Holy Qur’an. He also urged them to convert to Islam. Watch video below.

He told French newspaper, Le Parisien: “Like Islam, the FN defends the weakest. The party denounces exorbitant interest rates charged on the debt of our country, and Islam is against the practice of usury.”

“Some of my voters will be disappointed by my choice,” he said. “But I’m ready to explain to them that Islam has a mission to provide equal rights to both men and women.

“I was Catholic but when I reread the Bible I noticed all its inconsistencies. When I read Holy Qur’an thoroughly, I understood that this religion is more open,” he said.

The National Front has no power to sack Buttey from the post and he remains a councilor and a party member.

The Front National (FN) is an anti-Muslim, anti-immigration White Supremacist party. It was founded by Jean-Marie Le Pen in 1972 and was leader of the party until 2011 when he passed-on the leadership to his daughter Marine Le Pen. Jean-Marie Le Pen is considered a Holocaust-denier by Jewish groups based on 1987 TV interview in which he questioned Holocaust by calling the gas chambers being a “detail” or a “minor point” of WW II.

Marine Le Pen has brought several changes to FN and even has leaned toward Islamophobia to attract Jewish votes. In 2012, she sent her deputy Louis Aliot to Israel in order to drum up support among more than 70,000 French Jewish voters (dual citizen) living in Israel.

On September 26, 2014, The Times of Israel reported that the fear of “Islamization” is pushing French Jews to support anti-Semite Front National party.

“The younger Le Pen has aggressively courted Jewish voters by emphasizing its opposition to the Islamization of France and asserting that Jews have far more to fear from Arab anti-Semitism than from the racist rhetoric of some far-right activists.,” wrote Cnaan Liphshiz.

From its President, and the government that he formed, to the mainstream opposition, France’s political system is nothing less than the armed wing of the Americano-Zionist interests.
