Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Re: Macron Islam Policy Facing Mutiny

Candy ass threats of "mutiny", rather: no need to write headlines like a British tabloid. And it is certainly not "Macron Islam Policy" these armchair warriors are rejecting: Macron's government is pushing new laws that will submit Muslim people (and others) to more restrictions and arbitrary administrative decisions. The Interior minister, Gerald Darmanin told Marine Le Pen she's "not going far enough", during a televised debate two months ago.

What the fascists, in uniform or not, are really angry about, is that the French population is no longer uniformly white and catholic, like the good old days, when the few colored people "knew their place".

Specifically, the authors warned of an apocalyptic "civil war" and an "explosion" that would lead to "the intervention of our active duty comrades in a perilous mission to protect our values".

By the way, incitement to "disobedience of active members of the military" is punishable by up to five years in prison (source).

Mutiny - The term is commonly used for a rebellion among members of the military against an internal force, but it can also sometimes mean any type of rebellion against any force. Mutiny does not necessarily need to refer to a military force and can describe a political, economic, or power structure in which there is a change of power.

In my opinion, the politics of president Macron is strikt to move closer to extreme right views for electoral gain. He fails as leader who should unite groups in French society. The failures in living conditions, health and education has been highlighted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Problems should be solved and not shoved aside. This is so similar to most western nations especially the US, UK and The Netherlands.
