The BBC still seem reluctant to report this:
Elections at the weekend revealed a remarkable phenomenon: Muslims voting with the far right, anti-immigration Front National (FN).
“The main left and right parties have failed them. But for many Muslims, the moves towards legalising gay marriage would be enough by itself to vote for a party like the FN that opposes it too.”
And this definitely is a no no for the BBC….an immigrant’s son compaining about immigrants:
In the north-eastern town of Forbach, where the FN fell short of another dramatic victory, a former miner identified as Ahmed, 53, described his attraction to Ms Le Pen’s politics.
“It might seem bizarre for an Algerian’s son,” he told the daily newspaper Aujourd’hui en France.
“But my vote is a sanction. We give far too many handouts [to foreigners] in France and not enough to the French.”
Farid Smahi, whose father fought with the French army in World War II but later against them as Algeria battled for freedom, told the channel a million people of Arab background voted for Ms Le Pen in the 2012 presidential elections.
The Socialists retained control of Paris, with their candidate Anne Hidalgo due to become the capital’s first female mayor.
“I am the first woman to be mayor of Paris,” she said.
How shocking a woman Mayor….not so shocking though that Muslims vote for the Far Right….and oppose immigration?
Bizarre world of the BBC.
