Aux armes, citoyens !
Formez vos bataillons !
Marchons, marchons !
Qu’un sang impur…
Abreuve nos sillons !
“The hour is grave. France is in jeopardy, threatened by several mortal dangers.” That is the beginning of an open letter addressed to French President Emmanuel Macron and his government (Trumpet translation throughout). It was signed on April 21 by 20 former generals and more than 1,500 members of the military, police and gendarmerie. It calls on France’s leaders to “safeguard the nation” from Islamic threats and to preserve France’s history.
“[W]e remain soldiers of France and cannot in the present circumstances remain indifferent to the fate of our beautiful country,” the letter states. It expresses fear that France is “disintegrating with the Islamists of the hordes of the suburbs who are detaching large parts of the nation and turning them into territory subject to dogmas contrary to our constitution.”
The open letter was published in Valeurs Actuelles, which is considered a right-wing newsmagazine. Since its original publication, the letter has been signed by thousands more who believe that a failure to act now hazards a military uprising and civil war.
The letter states that radical Islamists “despise our country, its traditions, its culture, and want to see it dissolve by taking away its past and its history.” Europe’s history and tradition have been saturated not by Islam but by Catholicism.
What the retired generals are saying may become more and more mainstream
