Against radicalism and global jihad, Interior Minister Valls

29 January, 17:54

(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, JANAURY 29 - France will expel radical foreign preachers within days, Interior Minister Manuel Valls announced Tuesday at an international conference on fighting terrorism and radicalism.

The decision was taken within the framework of preventing radicalization and combating ''global jihadism'', Valls said.

''I am not confusing radical Islam and French Islam,'' the minister explained. ''There are religious communities, and there are self-styled Salafist groups, which are taking part in a political process, and which aim to take over the world of associations, to enter the school system and affect the consciences of a certain number of families. We will expel all those imams and foreign preachers who attack women, who profess that which is contrary to our values and uphold the need to fight France itself. From this point of view it is necessary to stand very firm, and we will.'' (ANSAmed).
