Really, M. Hollande?

So, very, very, very hard to believe anything that comes out of this Frenchman's mouth.

This is major weasel speak: 

"French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday rejected as “intolerable” the idea that fear of attack would prompt French Jews to “hide.”

“It is intolerable that in our country citizens should feel so upset and under assault because of their religious choice that they would conclude that they have to hide,” Hollande said following Monday’s attack on a kippa-wearing teacher in the southern city of Marseille."

Well, if anything, France seems to be really, really good at tolerating the intolerable.

Actually, I think what is intolerable to M. Hollande is that the Jews are leaving, mostly with suitcases but some in coffins. So the Jews will no longer be around to be the first line of victims-there will be other "regular" infidel victims. It's already started.

If France is going to stop tolerating the 'intolerable' then maybe the state prosecutors haven't gotten the memo? They seem to all be experts at Islam, but at recognizing terrorism? Not so much.

"The teenager in Monday’s attack “has the profile of someone who was radicalized on the Internet,” said Brice Robin, the city’s prosecutor. The assailant, who is of Kurdish descent, claimed to have committed his crime on behalf of Daesh. But, added Brice, “You get the sense that he does not have a full grasp of the fundamentals of Islam.”

Were it so, that the problem was an absence of a full grasp.
