Report from Zone Interdite in Roubaix: "New proof that assimilation must be rehabilitated"


FIGAROVOX/TRIBUNE - Following the broadcast of an M6 documentary on radical Islam, the essayist Lydia Guirous proposes an overhaul of the republican education system to fight against Islamism and delinquency among young people in the neighborhoods.

Lydia Guirous is an essayist.

Assimilation: to end this French taboo

with the editions of the Observatory.

Roubaix and triumphant Islamism have been in the news since the broadcast of a documentary forbidden zone on M6. Yet nothing new under the grayness of the North. Nothing new in France and I am still taken aback by our ability to be moved by a situation that we know only too well. Is the collective memory failing? Or a need to frighten oneself with what has already been denounced many times. Roubaix, yes, must face Islamism. France in some of its neighborhoods is only a vague memory. This does not date from yesterday or last year, it is the fruit of decades of cowardice, denial and filthy clientelism which border on complicity, crime against the nation and its cohesion.

Beyond the denunciation of this situation for which, however, I had, like a number of other authors, sounded the alarm in 2014 in my works and my media positions, at the cost of threats , caricatures and attempts to discredit my word, it is time to find ways to fight against the root causes and not just to dwell on a shared and long-known observation.

Roubaix, like too many cities and suburban districts, is also the fruit of the abandonment of assimilation.

An assimilation which nevertheless was a chance for those who took the step, certainly difficult and long, but the only way to establish roots in the nation and build a lasting future.

Many, however, have stigmatized assimilation to discredit it.

The same people who today are surprised at the intolerable excesses of the republican pact and the French nation.

Assimilation is, despite everything, the only solution to allow us to remake French people from these young people who 30% reject the laws of the Republic and to prevent others from drifting.

Of course the prerequisite will be to drastically reduce immigration.

We must deal with separatism and cultural rejection before bringing in and finding emergency accommodation for newcomers, especially if they come to swell the ranks of populations already in difficulty or even split.

Assimilation will pass above all through a return to basics and in particular a rigorous and demanding school.

A school where French culture and its promotion as a vector of emancipation must be at the heart of the programs.

The triumphant Islamism of Roubaix is ​​an Islamism made in France.

It's hard to accept, but that's the way it is.

Many young people who practice it have French nationality.

The failure is that of the Islam of France over which Islamism in France triumphed.

Assimilation will go above all through a return to basics and in particular to a rigorous and demanding school.

A school where French culture and its promotion as a vector of emancipation must be at the heart of the programs.

A school that promotes, as part of a course of republican citizenship, the values ​​of the Republic and the French way of life.

From kindergarten where a child must understand that his country is France and his blue white red flag, to the terminal where an evaluation could be integrated into the baccalaureate, and a republican ceremony could be organized to mark the entry into the life of citizens assets.

This may seem caricatural but the minds who will think so do not know the extent of the damage among the youngest.

The children are already in rejection of France while

they are French and only know France.

The school of the Republic must develop a republican and patriotic counter discourse so that the nation and its cohesion survive in the decades to come throughout the territory.

Islamism goes hand in hand with delinquency, families are sometimes complicit, sometimes overwhelmed, the State would benefit from taking care of children and adolescents at the first signs of slipping into delinquency.

Being away from the neighborhood from Monday to Friday to study, find the right path and open up a horizon other than the street and its vices would be beneficial for the child, his family and the whole nation.

Rather than abolishing family allowances, which can penalize or have no effect if the child is already in the deal, we will benefit from developing structures to keep these children away from their neighborhood and offer them a framework for their education and instruction.

We need to reverse the paradigm.

Boarding schools of excellence were necessary but in homeopathic doses and a good student will always be able to stay serious to get by.

The urgency is to open boarding schools to supervise the youngest who may be on the slippery slope.

Their selection can be made following a request from an overwhelmed parent, feeling the drift is coming or after consultation with the teachers.

Being away from the neighborhood from Monday to Friday to study, find the right path and

These levers seem to me to be means of fighting against the separatism that is advancing among young people and of relaunching a real process of assimilation.

With the hope that these French people on paper will finally become French people at heart.
