PARIS, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- French interior ministry on Wednesday ordered the deportation of an Tunisian imam who is accused of inciting "violent jihad, uttering anti-Semitic remarks and justifying the use of violence against women."
Mohamed Hammami, 76, was deported to Tunisia, his native country, the ministry said in a statement, adding that "the facts alleged against him are particularly serious."
The government has decided to be "uncompromising towards those who utter hate speeches against the Republic and our values and to expel officials and religious activists who advocate radical Islam," the interior minister Manuel Valls stressed.
Earlier this month, French police launched a nationwide anti-terrorist raid to dismantle a radical Islamists cell. One suspect of a grenade attack on a kosher grocery was killed during the raid and 12 others were arrested.
