Le Guay was writing in Le Figaro, France’s leading Gaullist (center-right) newspaper.
Damien Le Guay, a respected French philosopher, has said that by refusing to acknowledge we are in a state of civil war with radical Islam, we are aggravating the situation and slammed leaders’ responses to a wave of continued terror attacks.
Writing in Le Figaro, Le Guay says: “When we see that such attacks are repeated regularly in our territory and are perpetrated by nationals, are we entitled to recognise ourselves in a sort of civil war that does not mention its name? When victims are tricked at random and all murderers act in the name of Islam, are we not in a state of war on our territory?”
“Not to recognise this ‘civil war’ against us, between us, rather than improve the situation, aggravates it. The euphemism also kills. Our policies, by naivety, lack of courage or lack of lucidity, refuse the evidence. Consequently, in order not to take stock of the situation, they are procrastinating. Rather than healing our national fabric, they let the problems escalate. The rejection of Islam continues to increase in Europe.”
