French High Court Validates Dissolution of Two Islamist Groups

Le Conseil d’Etat valide la dissolution du CCIF et de BarakaCity par le gouvernement (French Conseil d’Etat Validates Disbanding CCIF and Barakacity by Government), franceinfo avec AFP, 2021-09-24.

The Conseil d’Etat, the highest administrative court in France, has validated the government’s decision, in late 2020, shortly after the assassination of Samuel Paty, to dissolve two organizations—the CCIF (Collectif contre l’islamophobie en France or Collective against Islamophobia in France) and BarakaCity—which were notorious for their Islamist orientation.

Excellent news. It was about time the French government acted against these two cesspools of Islamist propaganda.

Unfortunately the CCIF survives in a new incarnation, the CCIE (Collectif contre l’islamophobie en Europe), based in Brussels. As for BarakaCity, in August of 2021, immediately after the Taliban took the city of Kabul, its president Idriss Sihamedi publicly and joyfully declared his support for the new regime in Afghanistan.
