Large numbers of Muslims in France, as in the rest of the world (including the world of Islam), participate in electoral politics of the modern secular State without any consciousness of the religious implications of such conduct.
While it is quite clear that Muslims must be involved in politics in order to respond, for example, to oppression in the world today, few Muslims are conscious of the fact that the modern secular State was created and fashioned by Dajjāl on the foundations of Shirk (i.e., blasphemy), and that when they vote in elections of the modern secular State they become a party to that Shirk.
In my essay entitled: “Can Muslims vote in elections of the modern secular State?” I explained the subject in some detail and urged my students to abstain from participation in such electoral politics.
I sent a message recently to Alain Soral, the prominent French political thinker and activist, urging respect for our Muslim religious view concerning non-participation in electoral politics in France, and I am happy to share with you the news of his positive response:
“My answer is simple: I never called for the Muslims to vote Front National, I just pointed out that honour would command them to stop voting for PS ! (Socialist Party) which means, logically, that I advise them effectively not to vote anymore.” (I sought and obtained Mr Soral’s permission to publish his response in this statement.)
I must confess my astonishment at this clear, unambiguous and bold response. Most politicians in the world today, Muslim as well as non-Muslim, are incapable or unwilling to make such a response which would effectively ruin their political career.
I can only hope and pray that our areas of agreement with each other - Mr Soral in France, Prof Alexander Dugin in Moscow, and others elsewhere who are already showing great interest in our Islamic eschatology - may benefit our common cause of struggling to liberate the oppressed of the earth from an oppression the likes of which have never been experienced by mankind ever since the time of Pharaoh.
The Qur’ān has warned that if we do not reach out to build alliances with those who share a common cause with us, the consequences for mankind would be terrible:
وَالَّذينَ كَفَرُواْ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ إِلاَّ تَفْعَلُوهُ تَكُن فِتْنَةٌ فِي الأَرْضِ وَفَسَادٌ كَبِيرٌ
“With all this, [remember O Muslims that] the Kuffār (i.e., all hostile forces to Islam) are allies of one another; and unless you act likewise [i.e. you Muslims ally yourselves with like-minded forces], oppression will reign on earth, and great corruption.”
(Qur’ān, al-Anfāl, 8:73)
