A new poll shows most French people agree with the position of 20 retired military generals and 1,000 active duty service members, who in an open letter warned President Emmanuel Macron and the government of a military takeover unless his government can stop the rise in Islamic terrorism and surging knife crime as well as Muslim separatism which has rendered parts of the country to be ‘NO-GO Zones’ for native French citizens.

REMIX News Although the government is threatening severe reprisals against the signatories of the open letter, there are signs that most of the French public actually back the generals and nearly half support military intervention to restore order, a finding that undoubtedly will provoke worry inside Macron’s administration.

Two dozen retired French generals, dozens of other officers, and hundreds of private soldiers signed the open letter to the president and government in April. The signatories condemned “the disintegration that plagues the homeland, the hatred between communities fueled by a kind of anti-racism, Islamic extremism and suburban hordes that have forced a part of the country under dogmas that are unconstitutional.”
They warned that if the government failed to act “that they are ready to support politicians who are concerned with preserving the nation”.

According to Harris Interactive published by LCI, 58 percent of the French respondents agree with the contents of the letter. Nearly half (49 percent) of those surveyed would support military intervention to “restore order”. Less than a third think the signatories should be sanctioned, as French Defense Secretary Florence Parly proposed.
The letter also pointed out that if the current policy continues, the intervention of the signatories’ active comrades will be required. In France, this kind of position of soldiers is unprecedented, as the army has traditionally distanced itself from political debates. Civil servants are required to exercise restraint, which means political neutrality in public statements.
A significant number of signatories, on the other hand, have already retired, and several have already measured themselves in local elections in the colors of the National Assembly led by Marine Le Pen. French Prime Minister Jean Castex on Wednesday strongly condemned the open letter. Le Pen voiced her support for the sentiments shared in the letter and asked the generals to join her in the “fight” to restore the French nation through Democratic means. 

The public also agrees with other parts of the letter, for which the French Government is threatening to punish the generals severely. The poll shows 86% of the respondents agree that the constitution and laws guaranteeing equality before justice and freedom of religion no longer apply in some parts of France (especially in the Muslim ghettos).
An almost as strong majority (84%) feel that violence is on the rise due to Islamic extremists in the country. 73% sympathize with those who signed the letter and also believe that France will fall apart.
The poll also found that 74% of respondents agreed that anti-racism ultimately leads to hatred between individual ethnic and religious groups. Similarly, 73% of respondents agree with the claim that Islam divides and shatters French society.

Another 62%of French people agree with the criticism from the mentioned letter that the police fight protesters in yellow vests, while they are afraid of Muslim terrorists.
Of the more than 1,500 signatories, 18 active soldiers have been identified by the army, all of whom must stand before the supreme military council. Le Pen, head of the National Assembly, who is polled to win the first round of next year’s presidential election similar to the 2017 vote, assured dissatisfied soldiers on Tuesday of her support and asked them to vote for her next year.
“I invite you to join our action to take part in the battle that is opening up, Le Pen said. “As a citizen and politician, I agree with your analysis and share your affliction.”
