The face on the left is the face of everything that primitive Islam hates about us. It is the face of Clarissa Jean-Phillipe, the young French policewoman gunned down by the African Jihadist thug Amedy Coulibaly. She was young, black and a woman in a uniform, with trousers, boots and authority, a pistol at her waist, with power to instruct, arrest or direct grown Muslim men. Little wonder that she was a target of Coulibaly's savage fury. He was a loser - a poor, unskilled, uneducated, powerless savage, filled with hateful Islamicist bigotry, resentful of freedom and democracy. Statistically, his death has just marginally increased France's average intelligence.
Let us be quite clear. There is NO place in western society, in our culture, for Islamicism. There can be no wishy-washy accommodation in which Sharia law is anywhere allowed to be applied. Moslems must accept women and non-Muslims as having the authority of law over them, and accept the equality of all under the law. They must accept that ours is a society in which men can elect to be gay, and men and women can drink alcohol in public. It is the society that they have elected to join - if they want to share the economic benefits, they must accept our freedoms and our democracy.
And to all the Clarissas serving in our own police forces, for all the Clarissas in the Met, I thank you and salute you, and stand ready to defend you if necessary from the savage barbarism of the Islamicist bigots.
