For Luc Ferry, radical Islam is the equivalent of Nazism of the 30ies.
This is what Luc Ferry affirms on 4. November (in a French TV interview). The former minister reacts to the murder in Mali of 2 French Journalists of Radio France International. (RFI)
L’ancien ministre de l’Education nationale prend soin de faire la distinction avec la religion musulmane. Mais Luc Ferry compare l’idéologie hitlérienne et les fondamentalistes islamistes :
The former Minister of Education is careful to make the distinction with islam. But Luc Ferry compares Hitler’s ideology with the one of fundamental islamists.
“The problem is the fight against something which represents today somewhat the equivalent of Nazism of times past. Of course, I do not mean the religion of muslims”.
To justify this paralell, the philosopher lists following elements of comparaison:
“It’s comparable with anti-semitism, a kind of absolute contempt of individuals, of people, of human life. In its kind it is as cruel as the Nazism of the 30ies could be. (…)
It is at the same time antisemitism and communotarianism, it has contempt for the individual. Once more, I am speaking of fundamentalist islamists, of course I do not mean the religion of muslims. The koran is a very beautiful text, I am not speaking of that.”
Luc Ferry, prophetically, indicates that this could possibly lead to a 3rd World War.
“It’s a little the third world war, we have to take it like this. It’s a global problem, it’s very serious.
