French Prime Minister predicts more Isis terror attacks as ban on foreign funding for mosques considered
The French government is considering banning the foreign financing of mosques as it reshapes its counter-extremism strategy following a fresh wave of terror attacks.
Manuel Valls, the Prime Minister, told Le Monde the prohibition would be for an indefinite period but gave no further detail on the policy.
“There needs to be a thorough review to form a new relationship with French Islam,” he added. “We live in a changed era and we must change our behaviour. This is a revolution in our security culture…the fight against radicalisation will be the task of a generation.”
“This war, which does not only concern France, will be long and we will see more attacks,” he added.
“But we will win, because France has a strategy to win this war. First we must crush the external enemy.”
The French government has come under increasing criticism for failing to prevent atrocities, including the latest attack in Normandy.
