Jihadism leads French military officers to suggest coup against Macron

Jihadism leads French military officers to suggest coup against Macron
The "laxism" of President Macron's government toward the threat of jihad from Muslim extremists has led hundreds of French military officers, including 20 retired generals to write an open letter to French President Macron suggesting the military should oust his government if it continues to fail to act.  Eighteen serving officers signed the letter and all were fired from their positions.  The letter was organized by retired French Corps General Christian Piquemal.
The letter gained support among some political leaders including Rachida Dati, Mayor of Paris' 7th arrondissement.  Mayor Dati, who was raised in a strict Muslim household herself, and served as Justice Minister (equivalent to Attorney General is the US) in the government of immediate past French President Sarkozy, warned that France was "plagued by urban guerrilla warfare" and faced "a very regular and very high terrorist threat."
France has a presidential election next year, and polls are showing Marine LePen, leader of the populist nationalist anti-immigration National Rally leading incumbent center-left President Macron
