4. France's Islamist Poison, with Gilles Kepel

By Jorge González-Gallarza & François Valentin

Five years after the Charlie Hebdo attack, a Chechen Islamist beheaded a middle school teacher for showing a cartoon of Mohamed during a class on freedom of expression. Despite Emmanuel Macron’s bill on “islamist separatism” there’s a distinct feeling that France’s identity and unity are at stake. Gilles Kepel, one of the country’s most respected voices on the issue of Islamist terrorism, helps us unpack how France got there and how to deal with the Islamist poison.
