France

Over the past three years, France has deported 40 foreign imams for “preaching hatred.” A quarter of these have taken place since the January terror attacks in Paris. The ministry has vowed to clamp down on mosques and preachers inciting hatred after a suspected Islamist beheaded his boss during an attack on a gas factory, June last week. Yassin Salhi, 35, on Sunday confessed during interrogation to killing his boss and pinning his head to a fence of the Air Products factory near the eastern city of Lyon, flanked by two Islamic flags.  Minister Manuel Valls told French television, “We cannot lose this war because it’s fundamentally a war of civilization. It’s our society, our civilization that we are defending,”
