Peace : A novel that warned against the victory of Muslims in the French elections.

Peace . A novel that warned against the victory of Muslims in the French elections.  While German Deutsche Welle considers him "the most successful writer", he is the novelist "the most capable of expressing the crisis of expression," according to the Lebanese novelist and critic Elias Khoury.  Late last year, the book "The French Suicide" was published, which discusses the collapse of France before the Islamic religion, and its author is the well-known anti-Muslim journalist, Eric Zemmour (a Jew of Algerian origin), who recently announced his running for the presidential elections, and is called (Trump France). Background to the novel Welbeck, who was awarded the Prix Goncourt, the most prestigious French literary award, in 2010, for his novel The Map and the Earth.  Critics and political commentators say that the fears and warnings raised by the "surrender" narrative were evident in the speeches of the candidates for the 2017 elections, which President Macron won because he seemed less aggressive and extremist than his rivals Francois Fillon and Marine Le Pen.  The novel consists of 300 pages, and its hero is a university professor named (Francois), who is 44 years old, obtained a doctorate in literature, and was appointed to the University of Paris III, he has no friends, and his emotional life is limited to his sexual adventures with some of his students.  The author invents a party for the Muslims of France, called the "Muslim Brotherhood", founded by Muhammad Ibn Abbas (his father is a Tunisian grocer), and weaves a wide network of relations, which expands his audience base, and because the protagonist is a university professor, he talks a lot about the Arabs and Muslims present at the university, and they form " The Muslim Brotherhood Youth", whose branches are spread almost everywhere.  To counter the alleged danger, Welbeck invents a parallel bloc, the "Indigenous Bloc", or "the fanatics of one identity", whose idea is that they were the first to settle this land, so they reject "Islamic colonialism", as they reject American companies and capitalists from India and China.  From the university halls, where this youth spread and its members multiply, to the streets and neighborhoods of Paris, François notes that there is a change in favor of the Islamic party and at the expense of its opponents, so that the hero begins to search among his colleagues for the anti-Muslim current in France, and finds the "indigenous bloc" that shares the same fears, And it pledges to defend the same identity, in the same way that Welbeck himself, Zemmour and Le Pen do.  The events of the novel are developing rapidly, as the number of Muslims is increasing more than the rest of the population, and in return for this, the indigenous population begins to mobilize their energies and form themselves into secret groups to face the anticipated danger.  In the novel, as in many of his writings and press interviews, Welbeck raises fears of the growing number of immigrants and foreigners in France, especially Muslims, but in the novel specifically, he pushes events to the brink of "civil war", between the indigenous population and immigrants, after the ideas of the bloc spread The fanatic who believes that the outbreak of war is an inevitable necessity, and it is in the interests of the fanatics that war break out as soon as possible, because delaying it is not in their interest.  The protagonist’s attitudes toward political currents range from isolation at times, to engaging with fanatics at other times. Here he adopts many of the author’s ideas, especially those that come within the campaign of hatred and incitement against Muslims, but when isolation affects, extremist ideas and fanatic attitudes appear in other characters , his colleagues at the university or his remorse in the café, or his Jewish mistress who conveys to him that the fears that prompted many Jewish families to leave France for Israel, are related to the possibility of the Islamic party coming to power.  The novel imagines that the competition for the presidency in the 2022 elections will be strong between the far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, and the candidate of the Islamic Party, Muhammad bin Abbas, who is able to win the presidency in the second round after obtaining the support of the Socialist Party, the liberal parties, and the center and right currents.  After the arrival of the Muslim president to the Elysee Palace, the writer continues to imagine, that France will enter a new phase, with which the Islamization of the state and society begins, and the imposition of laws against republican principles, such as forcing women to stay at home and wearing the veil, depriving them of work and allowing polygamy, and obligating universities French, including the Sorbonne, teach the Qur'an.  And the Muslim rulers begin to work to persuade the Catholics to convert to Islam, while continuing to restrict the Jews to force them to leave France.  As for foreign policy, the new government will work to expand the European Union to include the Arab and Islamic countries bordering the Mediterranean: Turkey, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, in preparation for moving the center of civilization to the south, and benefiting from the residents of these countries in any upcoming vote within the European Union to achieve what it aspires to New France.  In general, we note that the ideas and theories of the extreme right are transmitted by Welbeck and his ilk to the field of the novel, where political imagination is employed to market fears and warn of alleged dangers, and push society away from real issues and problems, a delinquency that harms literary works and does not serve the political scene, as much as increases in congestion, and undermines the elements of coexistence between the components of one society.  According to Laurent Goffrin, director of Liberation newspaper, the novel of political fiction remains a station in the history of ideas, marking the foray of far-right theories of high literature.  The novelist Elias Khoury describes the novel’s path as “a dazzling path that departs from Islamophobia to reach the emptiness of meanings in the post-modern era.” According to Khoury, the novel becomes “an echo of the direct political event,” and concludes that “the cultural production has today become part of the slope of the downfall in Identity politics that abolish politics and literature.  For his part, Moroccan writer and critic Maati Qabal, who writes in both Arabic and French, says that the world that revolves around Welbeek is haunted by constant hallucinations that tirelessly haunt his mind, and one of them is Islam. As for the novel "Surrender", he descended to a lower level in cursing the Islamic religion.  Although the campaign of hatred for Islam and Muslims is expanding in Europe in general, in France in particular it has become more extreme, and has transcended the square of politics into the spaces of literature and culture. While this campaign dominates the political scene, it infiltrates the literary and intellectual scene through Eric Zemmour’s writings, Welbeck’s novels, and others. Just as before that it infiltrated the caricatures that affected the most important figure in the Islamic religion, the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him), and today they dominate the speeches of politicians and the programs of parties and candidates, especially as their currents have become right and not left, to pave the way for a series of laws and procedures that Rights are violated, freedoms are violated, and they constitute a real threat to the principles of freedom and equality, the motto of the French Republic and its most important principles.

During the court sessions, the focus will be on 4 main themes:  -Genocide, including shedding light on the Jammu massacres in which an estimated 230,000-500,000 people were killed in 1947. -Decolonization, where it is emphasized that Kashmir is not a separatist movement, but a movement for liberation from colonialism. -Settler colonialism, through the confiscation of land by force, and the imposition of belonging to the Indian state by force of arms. -Crimes against humanity and nuclear war, including mass graves, rape as a weapon of war and the constant threat of nuclear war in this disputed region.

The tribunal was held in collaboration with the French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, causing some to call it the "Russell Sartre Trial".  This idea inspired - after Russell's departure - intellectuals, scholars and politicians around the world, to establish similar courts on a number of cases that did not find a place for them in the official courts, the most famous of which are; Trials of human rights violations during the military dictatorships in Latin America (Rome 1973-1976).  The cases of the Arab world also had a large share in these people’s courts, as the Russell Court was held in 2004 in Brussels, regarding the American invasion of Iraq, and then in 2009 a trial was held with the aim of shedding light on the Israeli crimes in Palestine, following the attack launched by Israel on the Gaza Strip and launched It is called Operation Cast Lead.
