Bulgaria: France to Become Bolder, More Active in Fighting Еxtremism - Ambassador to Bulgaria

France will be bolder and more active in its policies against radical Islam, the country's ambassador to Bulgaria Xavier Lapeyre de Cabanes said on Thursday.

Commenting on the bloody attack on French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo which claimed twelve lives on January 7, Wednesday, he asserted Paris would neither backtrack on its immigration policies nor on its defense of basic principles such as freedom of speech .

In an interview with the Bulgarian National Television, De Cabanes cited the example of the US, which in his words did not choose to hid after the 9/11 terror attack.

"Democracies under attack do not hide. On the contrary, they want to defend and stand up for their principles," he asserted.

The Ambassador dismissed any suggestions that the focus of comments about Wednesday's events should be on the impact of mass immigration on security in France.

"Terrorist from the 70s [in France] were a hundred percent French citizens and not of any other origin. It is not a good idea to start a debate based on the peril of migration."

The two suspects, Cherif and Said Kouachi, are of Algerian origin.

After being shown a Charlie Hebdo cartoon with an irreverent depiction of a naked Muslim and asked whether the newspaper had gone too far in its humor, De Cabanes said: "If caricatures are that insulting, one could refer to the court."

What France can do??
France can find some Muslim country with secular court, hospitals and secular schools and bomb it.

Like Livia and Syria... and hope for the best..

just joking. France can do nothing. really nothing..

may be France can deliver the corvets to Russia finally
these will outrage the sponsors of the jihad more than everything.

welcome aboard France
game is over.. only pain and recollection of mistakes from now on.
and hypocrisy will not help
lost of pain in future.

"A hell of calls from my French friends. Leitmotif: "Horror", "How could it happen?", "You were right". To hell with
my "rightness". You, my dear friends, were so sceptical to my "Islamists become bolder and more and more aggressive" warnings, weren't you? Radical Islam, and just this bush blossoms all too profusely in France and other European states, yes, Radical Islam is: absolutely intolerant, extremely agressive and totally implacable. It's a plague, Europeans. Once again: not the recreational therapy "tolerance"/"multiculturalism" but the urgent surgical intervention is in demand. Though.....it's too late, I'm afraid. At least for France, my dear French friends."

This is the first time I've seen you write something that makes sense, is coherent and concise. Good for you sa-sha, you are starting 2015 with the right foot! Hopefully this will last and you will continue to make intelligent and persuasive arguments on this forum rather than the tired pro-Soviet/pro-Putin propaganda you blabber brainlessly on a daily basis.

Really? I doubt it. Your "France will be more active" seems to have little force, Monsieur l’Ambassadeur.
