France's top court ruled on Friday it was possible to strip the nationality of a Franco-Moroccan man naturalized as French who was convicted on terrorism charges, paving the way for more dual nationality jihadists to lose their passports. While Britain last year unveiled powers to strip suspected Islamist militants of their passports temporarily, France has so far stopped short of using the measure systematically even though hundreds of jihadists are joining Islamist groups in Iraq and Syria.
The move comes after President Francois Hollande's Socialist government unveiled a raft of new security measures weeks after two attacks in Paris by Islamist militants which killed 17 people and the three attackers. "We should not, in any case, deprive ourselves of lawful means to ensure our values are respected," Prime Minister Manuel Valls told journalists near Paris.WE IN THE WEST NEED TO DO THIS.
ON A MASSIVE SCALE IF NECESSARY.
AND IF NATURAL CITIZENS GET CAUGHT DOING THE SAME CRIMES,
THEN THEY NEED TO BE OFFERED A CHOICE:
JAIL FOR LIFE OR VOLUNTARY PERMANENT EXILE.
THEY CAN BE SENT TO NATION'S THAT ARE DOMINATED BY THE ISLAMISM THEY FAVOR.
