La France a un problème sérieux avec l’Islam radical, mais le projet de loi contre le « séparatisme » annoncé par le président Macron pourrait créer plus de problèmes qu’il ne prétend en résoudre.

Ce qui était au départ une réaction spontanée, légitime et populaire, face à une série d’assassinats barbares et qui cimentait l’opinion publique autour de valeurs universelles : le droit à la vie et la liberté d’expression…, risque de devenir une source de divisions, de conflits et la négation d’autres valeurs, tout aussi universelles, que sont le respect de l’autre, le droit à la différence et la tolérance…

Nous sommes de confessions diverses ou agissons à titre séculier, et représentons un degré élevé de diversité. Bien que nous soyons très peu en accord théologiquement ou politiquement, nous sommes tous d’accord sur l’importance de la liberté de religion pour toutes les religions et ceux qui n’en ont pas.

FRANCE: The proposed ‘law on separatism(s)’ should not target religion

The resurgence in attacks by radical Islamists in France, home to Europe’s largest Muslim population, has rekindled fierce debates about Islam, secularism, and discrimination. The deplorable assassinations in October 2020 of Samuel Paty, a teacher, and three Catholics in the Basilica of Nice have accelerated the political will of the authorities to adopt a law meant to tackle some of the root causes of Islamist terrorism.
