Sarkozy: There must be an Islam
“of” France and not an Islam
“in” France
Sarkozy’s first mention of
Islam comes during a row
over the left’s plans to give
the right to vote to non-
European foreigners in
municipal elections
Why do you think that non-
Europeans are Muslims?
Why do you say that? Why
do you say people who
aren’t European are
Muslim? asks Hollande.
Sarkozy says the right to
vote for foreigners, doesn’t
mean Canadians, or
Norwegians, but North
Africans, sub-Saharan
Africans, Algerians…
You’re making a link with a
religious identity, says
Hollande.
Sarkozy warns against
tribalism, citing Islam,
accuses Hollande of
ignoring the “reality” of the
high-rise estates. He says
there must be an Islam “of”
France and not an Islam
“in” France. Sarkozy vaunts
his own ban on the niqab
in France.
