The taxes will lead to complaints of “Islamophobia” and possibly to increased rioting. The Muslims in France are almost certain to reject any French government plan to bring Islam in line with French principles. This is because the French government is not Muslim.
Would Christians accept the dictates of a commission established by an Islamic government that presumed to dictate what Christianity was and was not? Of course not, and in this case, the unlikelihood of Macron’s plan succeeding is compounded by the fact that the Qur’an calls Muslims “the best of people produced for mankind,
enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong” (3:110), while the unbelievers are “the most vile of created beings” (98:6). Should the best of people, who know what is right and wrong, accept dictation from the most vile of created beings? As I show in my new book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, there is scant historical precedent for this.
