Racist ‘anti-Zionist’ group’s founders  now linked to terror plot.

“The Parti antisioniste  originates with the  centre Zahra, a Chitte Muslim organisation based at Grande-Synthe “

Its best known candidate for elections (2009 and 2012) was the convicted racist, and self-styled ‘revolutionary’ Dieudonné (pictured above doing the ‘quenelle ‘)

An alliance between Islamists, ‘pro-Palestinians’, a few extreme anti-Israel odd-ball shown in the photo, Greens,  ‘anti-globalisers,  individuals from the far-leftist (SUD, former PSU activists) and the far right (including well known Holocaust deniers from Égalité et réconciliation ) it scored few votes (around 1.30% to 1.14%.

There were persistent allegations that it received backing from the Iranian regime.

Today the group behind the Liste is accused of involvement in a terrorist plot.

NORTH: ANTI-TERROR OPERATION IN GRANDE-SYNTHE AGAINST AN ASSOCIATION OF SHIITES

The police raided on Tuesday the headquarters of an association of shiite during a counter-terrorism operation in Grande-Synthe in the North, the day on which Paris has frozen the assets of two iranian nationals, one of whom is suspected of being involved in a project of attack in Villepinte in June.

Three people have been remanded in custody at the end of the operation, including for the unlawful possession of a firearm, according to a source close to the folder.

A 6: 00 AM, the headquarters of the association of shi “Centre Zahra France” and the homes of its leaders in Grande-Synthe (Nord) have been the subject of searches of the administrative, involving 200 police officers, including officers of the Raid and the BRI, according to the prefecture of the north.

The operation was launched following the “strong support” to “many” terrorist organizations” of the officers of the association, whose assets have been frozen, according to a decree published Tuesday in the official Journal.

The ministries of Interior and of Economy and Finance have also taken a similar measure, in a decree separate, against the internal Security Directorate of the Ministry of Intelligence in iran, and two iranian nationals, one of whom is suspected of being involved in the project of attack in Villepinte in June against a gathering of a group of iranian opposition in France, the Mujahideen of the people (MEK).

“An attempted attack has been foiled in Villepinte on June 30. This act of extreme gravity to be carried out on our territory could not remain without a response”, jointly declare in a press release Beauvau, the quai d’orsay and Bercy.

The article in Libération adds some details about the background of these people.

Kémi Seba, président du Mouvement des damnés de l’impérialisme, condamné plusieurs fois pour incitation à la haine raciale, ou de son ami Dieudonné, condamné, lui, pour propos antisémites. A l’adresse du centre est aussi logé le Parti antisioniste, dont Dieudonné a été le candidat pour les européennes de 2009 et les législatives de 2012. Ce parti n’a qu’un seul but, comme il l’explique sur son site web : «Témoigner, informer et combattre ce mal qu’est le sionisme.»

Kémi Seba, is President of the Movement of the  “damnés de l’impérialisme”, and  has been condemned several times for incitement to racial hatred. and his friend Dieudonné prosecuted for antisemitic remarks. At the address of the centre is housed the Anti-Zionist Party. Dieudonné was the candidate for the 2009 European elections and the 2012 elections. This party has only one goal, as it explains on its website. :“Witness, inform and fight the evil that is Zionism.”

Yahia Gouasmi also heads the Shia Federation of France and is described as close to Iran. Thus, in 2009, he accompanied Dieudonné to Tehran, and met with him Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, then conservative president of the country. Alain Soral, essayist of the far right, who was also a candidate of the anti-Zionist Party, had also stated during a dinner in Nice in March 2013 that the money for the European campaign of this movement came from Iran, before retracting and asserting to Rue 89journalists that it actually came from the French Shiite community, via the “who embodies” , Yahia Gouasmi.

  1. CAREFUL with accusations of terrorism. The Zahra Center and Co. are NOT involved in a terrorist inquiry about a failed attempt to attack a meeting of the Moujahiddine du Peuple. “Le Monde” says French government wanted to kill two birds with one stone: on one side an attempt of a terrorist attack planned by Iran secret services againt the People’s Mujahideen in France, on the other side people who sympathize with some chiite version of Islam and have antizionist/antisemitic ideas. The fact that the French state mixes the two in order to send a warning to Iran DOES NOT MEAN AT ALL that the antisemites/antizionists of the Zahra center were actually involved in the preparation of a terrorist attack…. At least there is no such information for the moment…. “Pas d’amalgame” as we say in French. Even if Iranian secret agents, Zahra Center militants and even the socalled People’s mujahididden supported by Trump are scumbags, we should not put all these people in the same bag, but in separate bags to fight them more efficiently….

  2. Thanks for the details Yves.

    I relied on the Libération article (had not yet seen Le Monde) for this story but thought, in view of present UK controversies, signaling up this example of political confusionism is important in itself.

    Le Monde says they were targeted because they are seen as a “pôle « d’ingérence et d’influence » de Téhéran dans l’Hexagone.” a vector of influence and intervention by Tehran in France. And that, as you say, a number of factors at play in why they are interested in that.
