Before / After: the spectacular republican epiphany of Hassan Iquioussen in Le Parisien

Should we take him at his word? This Tuesday, November 15, in The ParisianImam Hassan Iquioussen beats his neck, admitting to having ” say bad things “. The Moroccan preacher, whose request for extradition to France was rejected on appeal by Belgium, was placed this Wednesday, November 16 in a closed center with a view to his expulsion to Morocco. He nevertheless had time to receive our colleagues at his home in Mons, for what looks like a demining operation.

Let us remember that Hassan Iquioussen is reputed to be close to the Muslim Brotherhood: betting on the long term, this Islamist society has made the flexibility of speech and the double game between an acceptable façade and a radical background one of its main instruments in its strategy. of influence. It would be wrong to see in these reversals the trace of any duplicity. When asked about the question, the one who asks himself in ” scapegoat » and claims « justice, period “swear to practice” a civic islam “: ” To consider that I practice entryism is conspiracyprotests the religious. I don’t: I’m French! Whether the Muslim Brotherhood acts abroad in their respective countries is up to them. »

Granted, but since Hassan Iquioussen is nothing but peace and love, how can the number and regularity of his “slippages” be explained? ” You know, at one time, I was doing 200 to 250 conferences a year, sometimes several a day he explains to our colleagues. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by a thought, by my vocabulary. My tongue forks, I use words that can be confusing. I sometimes talk bullshit, ask my wife! My words, I can then regret them and even condemn them. ” Whether Marianne does not yet have the ability to probe hearts and loins to judge the sincerity of his repentance, it is worth recalling Hassan Iquioussen’s liabilities, which at least allows us to measure the extent of the path that would have traveled the person concerned. While the latter invites the French to ” draw ” in the ” hundreds of hours » videos to get an idea about it, Point reported in August on a document of about fifty pages from the Ministry of the Interior listing all the “problematic” remarks of the imam. Here is a “before / after” of the republican epiphany of Hassan Iquioussen.

On the Jews

Before

In a recorded lecture in 2003, titled Palestine, the story of an injustice – the Jews, accused of conspiring against Islam and Muslims are described as ” misers and usurers », « the height of treason and felony “. ” The Jewish people are ungrateful and need to be called to order “, continues Hassan Iquioussen. According to him, ” the Zionists colluded with Hitler to give Palestine to the Jews, and that the Jews had to be hurt to get them to leave Europe “.

After

This Tuesday – ” Of course that is anti-Semitism. It’s crisp and clear. But I am not an anti-Semite. For 40 years I have been fighting to prevent Muslims from falling into anti-Semitism. It is true that there too I have evolved: today, for example, I consider that the question of Palestine is not religious, but purely political. Now, yes, I do my mea culpa for some of my inappropriate remarks and certain expressions that deceive my thinking. Anti-Semitism is a horror that must be fought and prevented through education. »

on terrorism

Before

On October 5, 2012, in a sermon held at the Abou Dhar mosque in Dunkirk – “ These pseudo-attacks are intended to frighten non-Muslims, so that they are afraid of Islam and Muslims. But that’s not enough: the war is done by two! Therefore, we must now put in the hearts of Muslims the hatred and fear of non-Muslims. How ? Well, by insulting the Prophet of Islam, by burning Korans. Like that, Muslims will develop hatred in them. »

But also in February 2004 during a conference in Mainvilliers, in the Eure-et-Loir, about Osama bin Laden, described as ” a great fighter against the Americans and a great defender of Islam. »

Finally, on December 24, 2011, during a sermon in Garges-lès-Gonesse – “ O Lord! Pour out on us endurance, make our feet firm and give us victory over the people of the disbelievers. […] Allah grants victory to our Mujahideen brothers in Palestine and Syria, Yemen, Egypt and everywhere else. »

After

This Tuesday – ” My position on the attacks has always been clear. I have condemned hundreds of times – and not with the back of a spoon – the killing of innocent people. We can only sympathize with the victims. »

On Islamism

Before

On September 28, 2019 in the video “ How much is the entrance ticket to paradise? – “ It’s only a matter of time for Muslims to disappear through acculturation! If only by assimilation. Thus, it is not a question of being a Muslim in a private capacity, only in a personal and individual capacity! […] It happened [de disparaître] to Muslim communities in the West who have assimilated, particularly in South America where the Muslims from the Middle East who arrived in the 1920s have disappeared, because the structures were not up to scratch. »

But also on September 3, 2016, in the video “ How to combat the Islamophobia of politicians? – “ So, instead of talking about the real problems of society, in particular unemployment, precariousness… we create false problems: burkini; now radical and political Islam; and maybe tomorrow more attacks. And we will ride the wave of ‘Islamist terrorism’. »

After

This Tuesday – ” The separatist? If there is one imam who has been advocating, for 40 years, living together, positive integration, civic engagement, it’s me. »

on women

Before

In the video ” Choose your wife well » published on November 12, 2013 – « Our Western society has done everything to ensure that women do not play their primary, fundamental and essential role, which is to be a wife, a mother. »

And especially on January 28, 2014, in the video “ Women and household chores – “ A woman’s place is in the kitchen, in the living room, in her bedroom, in the bathroom. She walks around her house as she wants, where she wants according to her needs […] It is obvious that it is the woman who is more often in the kitchen than the man. The man who goes into the kitchen opens the fridge and takes something, it’s not to do the dishes or to eat… so what? […] Allah created you my sister to assume your responsibilities with your family […] I refer you on YouTube to a video with the billionaire Rockefeller, not Rothschild… not Rockefeller. You type in “women’s liberation – Rockefeller”… and the guy, he says, We created the women’s liberation movement. Why ? For the woman to get out of her house and go to work. Why ? He reveals his plan, listen… before the society was patriarchal, the father and the husband before went to work and the mother managed the family. However, if we take the woman out to go to work, we will make twice as much money… She will need a car, so we will sell twice as many cars… Gasoline, therefore twice as much gasoline… She’s going to need to dress, so twice as many clothes (…) that’s business-wise, two purchasing powers! »

After

This Tuesday – ” My wife goes out alone, wears makeup, she works twice as hard as me. I’ve been cooking all my life, one of my sons cooks like a real chef, my boys clean their house, that’s how we raised them. Extremists have always accused me of being a feminist. It is true that as a religious, I remain a traditionalist, but I have evolved through my reading and through the feedback of women on my conferences. I know how to change my mind when someone tells me I’m wrong. Some of my speech in the past contained bits of misogyny. Today, I repeat in my videos: ‘Your husband does not have to prevent you from working, we are not in the Middle Ages.’ »
