Paris – Gérald Darmanin believes that the Collective against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) is “an Islamic pharmacy”, “a pharmacy against the Republic”, and ensures that the government has elements allowing “to propose its dissolution”, in an interview with Liberation put online Monday evening.
“It is an Islamist dispensary which invites radical Islamists. This is the case of Mr. Hani Ramadan (a brother of Tariq Ramadan, editor’s note), there are others“, argues the Minister of the Interior.”I will not detail (…) what we will send to the CCIF, but which gives us the means, indeed, to propose its dissolution“.
“This association is a pharmacy against the Republic. She considers that there is a + State Islamophobia +, while being subsidized by the French State since its donors also benefit from tax receipts“, he continued,”it’s time to stop being naive with these pharmacies on our soil“.
Mr. Darmanin proposed last week the dissolution of the CCIF after the beheading of a teacher at a college in Yvelines by an 18-year-old Chechen Russian who accused him of showing caricatures of Muhammad to his students.

In a video posted on social networks, Brahim Chnina, the father of a student had called for mobilization against the history teacher, Samuel Paty, and asked to write to the CCIF.
For Gérald Darmanin, this video was a “fatwa“, a “kind of manhunt who doesn’t say it“.
The CCIF, adds the Minister, “is an Islamist pharmacy that does not condemn the attacks“. “Regarding the last attack, while she is cited in the case, that Mr. Chnina quotes her, gives her phone number, she only calls in mourning“.
Mr. Darmanin emphasizes that the government is seeking “to fight an ideology, not a religion“. “French Muslims” are “the first to be targeted by these Islamists who want to extend their power“, he assures.”A very large part of Muslims in France are the first to demand strong acts from the French state“.
In his interview with Liberation, the minister also justifies the “home visits“carried out in recent days with individuals linked according to the authorities to the Islamist movement, explaining that”it is to send a message both to our fellow citizens and to political Islamists“.
“243“requests”have been made or are in progress. Of the 109 examined at this stage by the liberty and detention judge, 93 were authorized“and”seven resulted in a court case“, concludes the Minister of the Interior.
