FRANCE-OVERSEAS-POLYNESIA-RELIGION-ISLAM-DEMO

The female literacy rate in French Polynesia is at 97%. And the rate of violence against women there is lower than in much of the Muslim world.

Those are good reasons for women to be worried about the coming of a mosque which will preach hatred and intolerance toward women and non-Muslims.

About 1,000 people in French Polynesia have marched through Papeete in protest at plans to build Tahiti’s first mosque.

The rally was directed mainly at the 23-year-old imam, Hicham El Barkani, who last year set up a prayer room in town, and is now asking for donations from Muslims in France for a Tahiti mosque.

Some demonstrators say his form of Islam is dangerous while some women at the rally have been quoted as saying they fear losing their rights.

As well they should.

Islam is not known for being tolerant of women.

    Normal peace loving people know common sense and exercise them. But leftists love power and money and hates people with common sense that presents obstacles for them to acquire their love.

  • Froi Vincenton

    Let’s see if western liberals would call Tahitians “racists”.

    • Ivan Ewan

      Trying to think like a leftist: “dey speak French, dey must be raycists!”

    • Luke101

      Just speak the truth about the phony race hustlers in the Dem. party. You’ll achieve instant status as racist. Happens to me all the time. WHO CARES! That card don’t cut it anymore……

      We are Blue Dog Dems and we hate Islam.

    Multiculturalism never made any sense, and it has no future. The 21st Century is shaping up to be a battle royale of intense tribal competition among the different nations and cultural regions of the world. So long as we can find a way to keep it relatively peaceful, it should be a highly energized and highly productive time.

    • Viet Vet

      All this strife is being wrought by the leftist agenda to create a one world socialist government, with the UN as the government.

        100% correct

        “F” the Left.

      • Drakken

        No matter how any times the communist try communism, it always, without exception, leads to stacks of dead bodies.

    • JR Kipling

      Ah yes.. very productive and energizing. The way a lunatic asylum is kept in order by chains, drugs, guards and incessant chaos. Good thinking. Perhaps you can visit an asylum soon. They have your room waiting.

    • Anukem Jihadi

      Multiculturalism certainly has no future with Islam, multi-racialism possibly but not multiculturalism.
      Since there’s almost no hope of the adherents of Islam leaving the 7th century behind any time soon I can see how everybody else remaining relatively peaceful would make competition highly productive from the Islamic stand point.

    • Drakken

      Multiculturalism and diversity are one way tickets to Balkanization and we are well on our way with is inevitable conclusion.

    Notice that this “bringer of hatred” is looking for donations from muslims in France? Why is it that he’s not doing his fundraising in the local area where this mosque will hopefully NEVER BE BUILT??! A brilliant point was made here and that is that Tahitians are 97% LITERATE which to me means at least some of them have used this ability to see that islam is a cult that truly denigrates Women! I laugh when muslim women get trotted out in their veils and such to announce just how “feminine” islam makes them feel. I guess if you have now self esteem and are happy as a man’s property then islam would be just the place to go and be treated as lower than your husband’s donkey. I hope this mosque founders because it bodes brutally ill for Tahiti’s Women otherwise….the problem with mosques is that once one gains a toehold, then your area is open to the cancer afflicting areas such as Burma, Thailand, India, Nigeria and others!

      Always, they grew by foreign remittance of money. The government of Tahiti ought to step in.

  • Viet Vet

    Don’t let them in. Kill every last one of them. Gawd I hate to think of those dirty muslims ruining a place like that.

  • Luke101

    The building of mosques is the keystone in islamic hegemony and Cultural warfare inside secular countries. If you don’t believe me look at what’s happened in EU.
    It’s tragic, how their politicians have sold their children’s cultural heritage down the river.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      No more MOSQUE SETTLEMENTS in the West until Mecca is open to Infidels and Apartheid Saudi Arabia opens its country to all.

  • Craig

    Go Tahiti! Police closed down a Mosque permanently, here in Auckland, New Zealand a few weeks ago..

    • Viet Vet

      Great gnus.

    • Drakken

      You Kiwi’s should have burnt it to the ground.

  • Anukem Jihadi

    They can just take a look and see what’s happening in France.

  • TNT

    These people have got to stand strong. Toxic waste delivered in trucks and dumped in their front gardens would be preferable to this hideous ideology being enshrined in an actual building operating amid their neighbourhoods. Society starts to die when Islam enters.

    If Hicham Up wants a mosque, he can go to France and sit in one there. Can’t he simply be expelled – preferably into the sea?

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Japan, which is the only country I have ever heard of that doesn’t allow mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage that is really non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, is the only sane country in the world.

  • Allen Daniels

    One thing every mooscum male fears – an educated woman.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      That’s why the Taliban of Afghanistan shot a girl, Malala, in the head for the audacity of wanting an education.

      Odd that the feminists of the West hardly made a peep.

      It would be counter-revolutionary to oppose their Islamofascist allies.

  • Dragan Krsmanovic

    if the mosque is built, its the end of Tahiti…islam is a cancer…..

  • Hellosnackbar

    Not allowing a mosque is metaphorically a vaccination to prevent the mental illness that Islam inculcates!

  • iluvisrael

    Good for them! moslems bring trouble everywhere they crawl to.

      Boston, Boston Marathon bombing.
      London – 7//7/05 transport bombing
      New York – Times Square SUV bombing – thankfully a failure.

    This will demolish the Tahitian Tamure and our peaceful and loving way of life. Tahitians and all Polynesians — Get rid of these women haters, tear down their ideals by spreading the truth — NO SHARIA IN POLYNESIA!!!
