……only hates Jews who are descendants of apes and pigs.
In 2001, Haitham al-Haddad allegedly said “I will tell you the truth about the fight between us and Jews who are the enemies of God and the descendants of apes and pigs”. He later said that “this is the translation of what has been attributed to me” and that it had been incorrectly translated from Arabic to English.
A journalist for Radio Netherlands Worldwide wrote, “Strikingly, the cleric omits the definite article “the” before “Jews.” In the Arabic language, this omission could be taken to mean he was not speaking about Jews in general but only about those Jews who are enemies of God and descendants of apes and pigs.
In a homophobic article called ‘Standing up against Homosexuality and LGBTs’, Haddad has written of “the scourge of homosexuality”, which he calls a “criminal act” 
His attitudes towards women are highlighted by a comment he made in which he declared that “a man should not be questioned why he hit his wife, because this is something between them”.
In addition to this he has also claimed that “the most honourable and worthy role for a woman is striving to be a fine wife…this role does not only secure the best for a woman in the hereafter, but also fits perfectly with her natural disposition”
The Huffington Post reports,
A London university’s student union has come under criticism for allowing a pro-female genital mutilation supporter to speak at a debate on campus.
Haitham al-Haddad spoke at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) on Monday, despite having previously publicly advocated his support for FGM.
In a video posted on YouTube, he lectures on the importance of knowing female circumcision in the UK is illegal and says there is a “proper” way of carrying out FGM.
“In some countries.. they do [circumcision] a way that cause harm for the female,” he says. “There are some statistics it can cause 25% death of females.. This is called the Pharaonic circumcision.. We are not talking about that. They cut extensively. That is harmful, definitely. But it is consensus of all the scholars that female circumcision is sunnah [proper].
His views on Homosexuality, “Standing up against Homosexuality and LGBTs.”
In order to combat the scourge of homosexuality Allah has ordained us to speak out, and that we should co-operate with others in righteousness and God-consciousness.
The Far-right roots of French Panic over “Gender Ideology”
Fascist Intellectual Review Eléments on Gender Theory.
One can see the”L’idéologie du genre contre le sexe”.
We have to fight the ‘ ideology of gender’ because it calls into question the basics: what makes each of us a man or a woman that is the combination of our biological and social reality.
Gender ideology wants to make them disappear under this biological reality. It considers only our social reality and thus detaches in words and deeds the idea that our body is also a foundation of what we are.
On the Radio France-Inter this morning one Head Teacher of a Private (Catholic) school was beside himself.
He claimed that ‘gender theory’ would make all sports uni-sex and his charges would be devastated.
The girls would always lose!
One can see the same approach more ‘intellectually’ expressed in the Nouvelle Droite (French extreme ‘cultural’ right) publication Eléments (N°145)
The Manif pour tous site lists a variety sources for gender theory:
- Monty Pythons discover the “gender” in … 1979
Judea under Roman occupation, zealots hold a cell meeting in the amphitheatre: “This is not a struggle against oppression is a struggle against … reality. ”
- A summary of the positions of Judith Butler , feminist philosopher and theorist of gender.
- History of gender theory by philosopher Aline Lizotte
Reacting to this, and the general hysteria of the “pro-Family” movement and Sunday march, Manuel Valls, France’s Interior Minister and on the Right-wing of the governing Parti Socialiste, had some hard words for what he called a “« Tea Party à la française » and called for the republican right to clearly distance themselves from this movement. .
He talked of the country being plagued by “dark divisive forces”. .
The Minister stated that there was a wave of “anti” forces: anti-elites, anti-State, anti-taxation, anti Parliamentarians, anti-journalists. But above all, antisemites, racists and homophobes, or simply,anti-the Republic.
He compared the atmosphere to that of the “1930′s years”, during which the French extreme right “leagues” who railed against the Republic, Jews and Communists, Freemasons and Socialists, threatened French democracy. . Le Monde
This brief account would not be complete without mentioning Muslims for Childhood (‘Les Muslmans pour l’enfance’.)
NO to gender theory being taught in schools of the Republic, and no to trials of this teaching nursery schools. Our children have the right to RESPECT.
NO to forced individualism! No to the commodification of EVERYTHING!
YES TO STABLE and fruitful marriage. Yes to children’s rights!
The vast majority of those on yesterday’s demonstration for “family” came from the middle class French catholic background.
Some however came from a Muslim groups.
Bedos: the Anti-Dieudonné.
The French Comedian Nicolas has been satirising Dieudonné .
He appeared in one-man show with a Hitler moustache in a parody of the racist bigot.
Nicolas has stated that his intention is to “Not leave Dieudonné with the monopoly of subversion, and to remember that we can be provocative on the most sensitive issues without being oneself plagued by racism, misogyny, homophobia, etc.”
“For the most part, the pro-Dieudonné fans are fragile, culturally and intellectually, socially vulnerable and shocked by the fate of Palestinians, hence the fantasy of some sort of Israeli-Jewish-American political-media-financial conspiracy: Dieudonné continues to feed this frenzy.”
“Why embody a character in Arabic accent?
I mostly played simply a complete tosser. I knew very well in writing the sketch that people would see some housing estate scum. But I play somebody who is above all a cretin, rather than because he is an Arab (slang rebeu).
We have to stop the hypocrisy: you only have to look at the public for the shows Dieudo puts on to see that a large majority are young people of immigrant origin, wounded by their situation, contempt for society, and indifference to Palestinian suffering.
I understand their anger, but I absolutely hate to see Dieudonné and Soral taking advantage of their plight for their own narcissistic and financial reasons.”
Bedos is opposed to a public ban on the anti-Semite’s shows.
“We have to fight against the tendency to legislate on artistic matters.
Dieudonné is no longer an artist, he is a proselyte for the extreme right. But we should not forbid him from performing, that in itself expands and solidifies his audience.
Dieudonné’s public only dreams of being stifled and muzzled, and this keeps them together.
If we talk about banning, why not ban Marine Le Pen and the Front National”
(Adapted from Le Monde.)
In the past Bedos has also been in trouble because he criticised Israeli policies, attacked Sarkozy (« VRP cocaïné ») and has been fined for insulting the Police – amongst other controversies.
Now he has received death threats.
Those anti-Semites don’t like it up ‘em!
Has soft-Soft-Spot for Holocaust Deniers.
The left-wing site’ have published this unwelcome contribution to the “Dieudonné debate”.
It is written by a certain Dianna Johnson.
French mainstream media and politicians are starting off the New Year with a shared resolution for 2014: permanently muzzle a Franco-African comedian who is getting to be too popular among young people.
To invent a pretext for destroying Dieudonné, the leading Jewish organizations CRIF (Conseil Représentatif des Institutions Juives de France, the French AIPAC) and LICRA (Ligue internationale contre le racisme et l’antisémitisme, which enjoys special privileges under French law) have come up with a fantasy to brand Dieudonné and his followers as “Nazis”. The quenelle is all too obviously a vulgar gesture roughly meaning “up yours”, with one hand placed at the top of the other arm pointing down to signify “how far up” this is to be. *
Like the best humorists, Dieudonné always targeted current events, with a warmth and dignity unusual in the profession.
She ends with this,
Yet in this escalation, the relationship of forces is very uneven. A humorist has words as his weapons, and fans who may disperse when the going gets rough. On the other side is the dominant ideology, and the power of the State.
In this sort of clash, civic peace depends on the wisdom of those with most power to show restraint. If they fail to do so, this can be a game with no winners.
In other worse, shut up you carpers and Jews.
Fortunately an immediate response is available by a true comrade,
Come on, Counterpunch, tell the facts Dieudonné is antisemitic.
02 JANVIER 2014 | PAR YANN KINDO
In the webmagazine Counterpunch published on January the 1st 2014 an article by Diana Johnstone about the « Dieudonné affair » in France, entitled « The Bête Noire of the French establishment ». This contribution being an answer to Johnstone’s, you should probably read hers first :
Counterpunch is a website that is proud to « tell the facts and name the names ». In fact, when we talk about Diana Johnstone’s piece, I have to admit that I have rarely read a paper which so obviously ignores the facts and hides the names the reader would need to know in order to understand the situation. I will try to tell the facts and the names, then. Of course, what I can’t tell you about Diana Johnstone is whether or not she is profoundly ignorant of what she’s writing about – if so, why write an article, then ???? -, or whether she knows the facts and names and just wants to hide them for a certain purpose. Nonetheless, the fact the she’s writing from Paris gives me a clue, and my guess would be that she’s lying by omission more than anything else.
Recently, Dieudonné made a comment about a jewish journalist who had criticised his new show, and the comment was the following :
“When I hear about Patrick Cohen, I think… the gas chambers, you know… too bad.”.
Very funny, isn’t it ? What do you think, Diana Johnstone ?
Quand je pense à ça…
Let us be clear Dieudonné is a a far-rightist.
These are his politics,
.On Saturday 21 March 2009, Dieudonné announced that he would run for the 2009 European Parliament election in the Île-de-France at the head of an “anti-communitarist and anti-Zionist” party. Other candidates on his party’s electoral list are Alain Soral and the Holocaust denier and former member of Les Verts Ginette Skandrani (also known as Ginette Hess), while Thierry Meyssan and Afrocentrist Kémi Seba, founder of the “Tribu Ka” are members of the party but do not run. The campaign would be conducted again by Marc George. In spite of the association of Dieudonné’s party with the Shiite Centre Zahra, whose president Yahia Gouasmi also runs on his list, his candidacy was supported by Fernand Le Rachinel, a former high ranking executive of the Front National and official printer of the party. In early May 2009, the French government studied the possibility of banning the party, but on 24 May, Justice minister Rachida Dati acknowledged that, in spite of moral objections, there was no legal ground to do so. On 28 May, it became known that Carlos “the Jackal” also expressed his hope Dieudonné would make it to Strasbourg. The Parti antisioniste finally scored 1.30% of the votes.
These are his “convictions”,
- On 14 June 2006, Dieudonné was sentenced to a penalty of 4,500 Euro for defamation after having called a prominent Jewish television presenter a “secret donor of the child-murdering Israeli army”.
- On 15 November 2007, an appellate court sentenced him to a 5,000 Euro fine because he had characterized “the Jews” as “slave traders” after being attacked in his theater le Théâtre de la Main d’Or.
- On 26 June 2008, he was sentenced in the highest judicial instance to a 7,000 Euro fine for his characterization of Holocaust commemorations as “memorial pornography”.
- On 27 February 2009, he was fined 75,000 Canadian dollars in Montreal for defamatory statements against the singer and actor Patrick Bruel after he called him a “liar” and an “Israeli soldier”.
- On 26 March 2009, Dieudonné was fined a total of 3,000 Euros for defamation after having criticised Elisabeth Schemla, a Jewish journalist who ran the now defunct Proche-Orient.Info website. He declared on 31 May 2005 that the website wanted to “eradicate Dieudonné from the audiovisual landscape” and had said of him that “he’s an anti-Semite, he’s the son of Hitler, he will exterminate everyone”.
- On 27 October 2009, he was sentenced to a fine of 10,000 Euros for “public insult of people of Jewish faith or origin” related to his show with Robert Faurisson.
- On 8 June 2010, he was sentenced to a fine of €10,000 for defamation towards the International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism, which he had called “a mafia-like association that organizes censorship”.
- On 10 October 2012, he was fined €887,135 for tax evasion. According to the French revenue service, Dieudonné failed to pay part of his taxes from 1997 to 2009
Those who continue to publish in Counterpunch, which has previously given vent to the views of Holocaust Denier, Israel Shamir, should be aware of this kind of outfit they are associating with.
Vermin is perhaps too kind of a word.
* Note it also means to sodomise somebody, which no doubt Counterpunsh endorses.
Amina: Worried About ‘Israeli’ Finance for Femen.
This morning on France-Inter the Tunisian Femen activist (imprisoned and still charged with outrage of public decency) explained why she had left the feminist group.
She highlighted her concerns about Femen’s ‘Islamophobia’.
Amina then stated that she was worried about the finances of the organisation.
She expressed the view that she would not accept money from “America or Israel”.
Why did you decide to quit the Femen group?
I don’t know how the movement is financed. I asked Inna several times, but I didn’t get a clear answer. I don’t want to be in a movement supported by dubious money. What if it is financed by Israel? I want to know.
And then, I don’t want my name to be associated with an Islamophobic organization. I did not appreciate the action taken by the girls shouting “Amina Akbar, Femen Akbar” in front of the Tunisian embassy in France, or when they burned the black Tawhid flag in front of a mosque in Paris. These actions offended many Muslims and many of my friends. We must respect everyone’s religion.
But these actions were taken to support you while you were in prison. Why didn’t you consider them as such?
I thank them all for their support. Especially Joséphine, Marguerite and Pauline, who were also imprisoned. They took some good actions, but it wasn’t the case for all of them. They should have asked for my lawyer’s advice before taking some of these actions. This made my case even more difficult. Because of the protests I was charged with a new crime, “criminal conspiracy,” when I was in prison.
Have you informed the Femen group about you quitting the organization?
No. They are not going to like it, but that’s the way it is.
So, you decided to quit the organization, but you posted another topless photo just four days ago…
Yes, a topless photo of myself bearing a painted circled A, the anarchist symbol. It’s different.
Amina then announced her possible support for an Anarchist group Feminism Attack.
She declared that the “problème c’est tout le système” , the problem is the whole system (original – bizarrely translated in the English language Huffington Post as “I don’t like the system altogether”).
We strongly suspect this is the source of Amina’s ‘concern’ about the money behind Femen.
From what is known about their funding: the key player appears to be an individual named Jed Sunden. (6) Sunden is a Brooklyn-born American Jew who founded a major Ukrainian newspaper/media company; KP Media (which owned the Kyiv Post till 2008/2009 for example) , (7) and also is an active part of the Ukrainian jewish community. (8) Sunden was the man who‘discovered’ Femen and it was he who began to give them the oxygen of publicity (and notoriety) for their topless protesting in the Kyiv Post.
The anti-Semitic site (Semitic Controversies), continues,
This Jewish money and influence behind Femen seems to also be reflected in the organization’s public activities in so far as it protest against a vast number of things in different countries, including outraging Islamic opinion by performing topless stunts in North Africa and outside mosques in Europe. (13) This is in addition to Femen’s attacks on anything even remotely conservative as being‘patriarchal’ as well as their fairly crude hatred of religion writ large (and without qualification), but primarily of Christianity and Islam which they consider (as good third wave feminists) to be ‘evil patriarchal religions’ responsible for ‘innumerable atrocities against women’ as being intrinsically deeply oppressive towards the fairer sex.
There is plenty in the same vein from Russian racist sites, and the British ‘Stormfront‘.
This is a great shame.
Amina showed great bravery in protesting at sexism in Tunisia.
She still risks two years in Prison.
Amina betrayed not FEMEN but thousands of women who acted for her freedom during “Free Amina campaign” and because of who she is free now
