France is moving to shut six mosques and break up several associations suspected of producing radical Islamist propaganda, Interior Minister Gerarld Darmanin said on Tuesday.

A third of the 89 places of worship “suspected of being radical” and flagged by the intelligence services had been checked since November 2020, he told Le Figaro newspaper.

Of those, action to shut down six – in five different départements across France – had been launched, he said.

The authorities would also request the dissolution of the Islamist publishers Nawa and the Black African Defence League (LDNA).

Nawa, based in the southern French town of Ariege, “incites the extermination of the Jews and legitimises the stoning of homosexuals”, Darmanin said. The LDNA, the organisers of a protest against police violence in front of the US embassy in Paris in June last year, “calls for hate and discrimination”, he said. “In the coming year, 10 other associations are going to be the object of a dissolution procedure, four them next month,” he said.

Last week, the Council of State, France’s highest administrative court, approved the government’s move to dissolve the Collective against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) and Baraka City.

The Islamic press has been chuntering about these forthcoming closures all week.
