De Gaulle: “What can I do if the Qur’an is greater than France?”

When Charles De Gaulle, was Minister of Algerian Affairs in Occupied Algeria he tried an experiment to force French values on Algerian Muslims. It ultimately failed because Islamic thought is too powerful to be defeated by kufr (disbelief).

He responded to his critics, “What can I do if the Qur’an is greater than France?”

The Qur’an clearly states:

يُريدونَ لِيُطفِئوا نورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفواهِهِم وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نورِهِ وَلَو كَرِهَ الكافِرونَ

They desire to extinguish Allah’s Light with their mouths but Allah will perfect His Light, though the disbelievers hate it.

(Surah Saff, verse 8)

We see similar experiments nowadays in the UK where the government is trying to impose British values on Muslim school children. The fundamental idea underpinning British values is that man-made law is superior to Allah’s law. Even a child can see the fallacy of comparing a corrupt, self centered politician sitting in parliament to Allah, the creator of man, life and the universe. For adults one word shows the fallacy of democracy which is the disaster called “Brexit”.

This plan to corrupt Muslim children will fail so long as Muslim parents continue to culture their children in Islamic values. The Islamic values of obedience, accountability and responsibility vs. the British values of freedom will always win. Islamic values will also lead towards a safer society and are the clear solution to the current crime and gang epidemic plaguing UK inner cities.

Samuel Huntington says, “The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.” [The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, p.51]
