Arrest or Death? Will Le Figaro’s Yves Threard face Blasphemy Charges?
The most dangerous and politically incorrect statements came when Yves Threard boldly declared: "There is no such thing as Islamophobia. I hate the Muslim religion. I'll say it".
Threard still maintained his strong opposition to the wearing of the Islamic veils in France,
" I repeat that we can not join one or
the other of these religions - that's not my case, but what I do not like is
the religious excesses. sectarian excesses (...) I'm sorry (...) but for me, the
wearing of the veil, the abaya, the burkini, are militant signs and ideological
artifices. These signs, no, I do not do not accept them and I will not accept
them in France "
