France’s Le Pen Voices Anti-Islam Stance Ahead of Election

With only 3 weeks before the 1st round of France’s Presidential election, far-right candidate Marine Le Pen is working to galvanize voters with anti-Islam declarations that is 1 of her trademarks.

Ms. Le Pen addressed thousands of supporters Sunday in the southwest French city of Bordeaux, where she vowed to “uncompromisingly fight Islamist fundamentalism which seeks to impose its oppressive rules in our country.”

She also criticized the headscarves that some Muslim women wear, saying “girls in France should be able to dress as they wish” and “shouldn’t be forced to bury themselves under clothes of another age.”

The latest polls suggest Le Pen is a top contender in the election’s 1st round on 23 April, but could lose in the 7 May runoff.

Stay tuned

Have a terrific weekend.
