The women's revolt in Iran, which impresses the whole world, is not just a revolt: it is a revolution. 

For a simple reason: they are not satisfied with contesting one aspect of the mullahs' regime, in place since 1979. They attack its main symbol, by which it has taken over women's bodies, making this domination the victory marker.

In Iran, who attacks the veil attacks the ideological pillar of the regime. A woman who removes her veil immediately becomes a dissenter. The one who burns it defies the regime. Thousands of women doing the same are leading a revolution. At the risk of their lives.

Since 1979, it will be added, the Islamism that has launched its conquest of the West has also made the veil its main emblem.

It is by veiling women that he seizes the public space, before imposing other symbols. Each time, women's rights regress, as we see daily in Europe.

Islamism, with the veil, transforms women into physical banners of its progress, whether they are aware of it or not. .

Islamism has even managed to convince us, through a fascinating ideological manipulation, that this symbol today is that of diversity. Canada converted to this vision of the world in a caricatural way.

All of this is not unrelated to the uneasiness of Western feminists in the face of the revolution in Iran. But I correct myself. I'm talking more about this feminist movement rallied to the diverse ideology, which has been fighting for a few years to make us accept the veil everywhere, at home, and which treats as Islamophobes those who confess the slightest discomfort with it.

So how do they react to these Iranian women tearing off their veils and burning them?

By a rhetorical pirouette.

They tell us that they are not fighting against the veil, but for the free choice to wear it or not. Their fight would be the same as those of the Muslim women who are fighting here for the right to wear it.

That's what they call taking us for fools.

There is no There is no symbolic equivalence between wearing the veil and not wearing it. There are limits to relativism.

The history of civilizations counts, the history of religions counts too, and the Islamic veil is not a floating symbol, which can be reduced to a piece of cloth.

In our countries, it represents the advancement of a conquering ideology that intends to subjugate them. As much as it can, secularism seeks to serve as a barrier against it.

The women's revolution in Iran is both feminist and humanist.

How to be in solidarity with Iranian women?


Firstly by not reproducing here what they denounce at home.

Then, by denouncing, I repeat, those who say that their fight is the same as that of women in the West who claim the right to wear it all the time.

From time to time, you have to fight the lie of ideologues.

For example, now.
