Dieudonné Faces Five Years in Prison for Justifying Islamist Beheading.

with 3 comments

Holocaust Denier Dieudonné  Faces New Charges. 

In a video, Feu Foley,* the French ‘comedian’ Dieudonné, gave his unique angle on  the beheading of the American Journalist, James Foley (Europe 1. brief English report, Independent)

The jocular Jew-hater  began by observing that the deaths of Saddam Hussein and Colonel Gaddafi, hanged and lynched, had not seemed to move anybody.

The video of James Foley’s killing, by contrast  “moved the cadres of the Rothschild Mafia”.

With heavy-handed irony the ‘humorist’  stated  that since the guillotining of Louis XVI  decapitation was a sign of civilisation and progress. The king was even executed in public, on the  Place de la Révolution.

In any case the convicted anti-Semite was more concerned with the death of a Cameroonian  footballerAlbert Ebossé, who was killed this August struck on the head by a missile at a game in Alegria – this he compared to a stoning (lapidation)

Dieudonné added that his editor had had a good laugh at the murder.

The video has been taken down by Youtube.

French prosecutors have launched an investigation.

A penalty of five years in prison  for “justification of terrorism” may be demanded.

Those who like Dieudonné range from disaffected urban youth to the classic French extreme right. Le Pen is the godfather of his daughter  and he is close to holocaust denier, Alain Soral. The ideas behind the Dieudosphère  are a miasma of conspiracy theory, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and anti-Western clichés.

* A pretty hard pun on the literary word ‘feu’ (deceased), les feux follets (will-o’the-wisp) and Folly (folie, madness), and James Foley  the American journalist whose decapitation by ISIS was videoed.

  1. Disgraceful that you can be locked up for this. This in really is the end of free speech, something I think you showed concern for on a previous occasion but now seem to be wholly endorsing?

    No wonder Le pen is looking good for the next French presidential election.

    I think Galloway looked at this from the right angle, no one had really batted an eyelid when ISIS were committing crimes against the Syrians, in fact they were being cheered on, no one gives a shit that Saudi Arabia has intensified its beheadings (including 17 year old girls), in fact they get billions from the imperialists. All of a sudden 2 Americans die and we are meant to now show outrage.

    I absolutely oppose the US terrorism in Iraq, where they have slaughtered hundreds of thousands and turned the region into the basket case the anti war left said they would. The US are more Saddam than Saddam, ironically (or not).

    Down with terrorist apologists like Coatsey and the rest of the drone supporting leftists!

    I cannot see how the article above endorses Dieudonné investigation by the French Authorities. Indeed, stating that the beheading of James Foley “moved the cadres of the Rothschild Mafia”.is nothing more than stock far right wing mumbo jumbo which would probably garner the interest of the CPS had such remarks been made publicly here in the UK.

    Galloway got it wrong though before that, handing wads of cash to Hamas and having a certain soft spot for Saddam Hussain for years. His advocacy for universal human rights is nothing more than risible.

    .You cite no evidence specifically of who or where this support for ISIS comes from whilst carrying out atrocities in Syria.

    As for Saudi Arabia you are correct, there has not been nearly enough criticism, particularly from the Left. Counterfire, SWP Start the War etc. have only ever raised Saudi human rights abuses as a vehicle for criticising the US and the UK and not for criticism in its own right. But checkout a post on this site a few days back.

    And just for the record, I would like to ask you just where were these predictions by these extraordinary visionaries Rees, German and co. that the invasion in 2003 would lead 11 years on to fascist regime starting in Syria and spreading into Iraq. There may be a correlation but Humean causation are you serious.

    Opposing the Iraq war was not a zero sum game, Saddam Hussain may have remained in power, been deposed during a bloody civil war, the range of possibilities are vast. All Stop the War said was, anti, anti anti etc. without making any calculus as to what the possible carnage would be had he remained in power. I say this from the position of being against the invasion myself.

    On this basis just being against something can still lead to a complex array of outcomes,your simplistic determinism especially on a post facto basis is utterly facile.
