Hypocritical Charlie Hebdo suspends journalist over articles attacking Islamic terrorists

via Charlie Hebdo suspends Zineb El Rhazoui after death threats over articles attacking Islam | Daily Mail Online.

Satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has been accused of hypocrisy after it suspended a journalist who has received death threats for her articles attacking Islamic extremism.

Zineb El Rhazoui, 33, was called to a preliminary dismissal hearing to remind her of her ‘obligations’ towards the French weekly following ‘numerous incidents’.

The French-Moroccan columnist accused her employers of trying to ‘punish her’ for speaking out about the direction of the magazine four months after the jihadist attack which left 12 dead.

‘I am shocked and appalled that a management that has received so much support after the January attacks could show so little support for one of its employees, who is under pressure like everyone in the team and has faced threats,’ she told Le Monde.

‘My husband lost his job and had to leave Morocco because the jihadists revealed his workplace. I am under threat and having to live with friends or in a hotel and the management is thinking of firing me. Bravo Charlie.’

The move has prompted outrage on social media with thousands calling the decision ‘absurd’ and bewildering’.

Mrs El Rhazoui and her husband, Moroccan writer Jaouad Benaïssi, received death threats on Twitter from people claiming to be from Islamic State in February.

Photoshopped images of the couple dressed as ISIS prisoners about to be executed emerged on social media along with a map showing the places the journalist often visited.

Speaking at the time she said: ‘Pictures of my husband, his workplace and geolocation information have been published, as well as various suggestions on how to bump us off.’

The human rights campaigner was one of 15 Charlie Hebdo writers, editors and cartoonists who wrote an open letter criticising the magazine’s owners and management in late March.

They raised fears that the left-wing and anti-religious magazine might succumb to the ‘poison of the millions’ of euros that had flooded in since with terrorist attack in Paris in January.

The group called for the magazine to become a ‘co-operative’ and asked for its new found riches to be placed in a trust to guarantee the magazines’ survival for ’30 years’.

Killers Saïd and Chérif Kouachi targeted Charlie Hebdo after the controversial paper published cartoon images of the Prophet Mohammed.

But now thousands, including the magazine’s own writers, have accused the weekly of ‘hypocrisy’ after failing to support its own staff.

Writer Patrick Pelloux said: ‘We are all still trying to cope with life after the attack,’ he said. ‘It is nasty and unfair to call a disciplinary meeting for a member of staff who is still suffering incredibly.’

‘It is paradoxical that the magazine receives prizes for freedom of expression while disciplining a journalist whose life is under threat’.

Oliver Farry ‏tweeted: ‘The lack of self-consciousness among Charlie Hebdo management is bewildering.’

Romain Burrel said: ‘Even Charlie Hebdo is no longer Charlie. Zineb El Rhazoui is laid off.’

A spokesman for Charlie Hebdo said there were no plans to fire Ms El Rhazoui.

He said the journalist was suspended and called to an ‘interview’ to remind her of her ‘responsibilities’.

These are defining days. Many, many people whom I had thought to be clear-sighted, strong and courageous have proven to be cowardly, pusillanimous and self-serving, eager to betray the supporters of free speech and free society in exchange for a few more years of their miserable slave existences. Even Charlie Hebdo, the international symbol of defiance against violent intimidation and censorship-by-murder, has folded and submitted to the jihad force.


Another success for the jihad:

France: Brigitte Bardot on Trial for 5th Time for Opinion on Islam

Her opinion is a violation of sharia law.

via French Icon Brigitte Bardot’s Blasphemy Against Muslims – Breitbart.

Former film star Brigitte Bardot, France’s iconic blonde bombshell and “sex kitten” who reigned supreme from 1952 – 1973, has been on trial five times for insulting Muslims and “inciting racial hatred.”

The prosecutor in her fifth trial, Anne de Fontette, wants a heftier fine and a tougher sentence: the equivalent of $24,000 and a two month (hopefully) suspended jail term.

What crimes has Bardot committed in the land without a First Amendment, in the land of Hate Speech laws that are being slickly exploited by non-persecuted Muslims?

Bardot has written: “I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country.”

Islamo-faux-bia. Only 24% of Americans Think Paris Jihad Attack Represents True Beliefs of Islam

Ignorance perhaps. But a majority of Americans polled believe Muslims will attack Islamophobes here in America. via Americans Think Charlie-like Attack Likely Here – Rasmussen Reports™.

Americans are hesitant to link the terrorist massacre in Paris this past week to the true beliefs of Islam, but many worry a similar attack on those critical of the religion in the United States could happen in the near future.

Sixty-five percent (65%) of American Adults believe it is at least somewhat likely an attack on those critical of Islam will happen in this country in the next year. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 26% think an attack similar to the one against the satirical Parisian publication Charlie Hebdo which mocked radical Islamicists is unlikely to happen here. This includes 29% who say such an attack is Very Likely and just five percent (5%) who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Even before the Paris incident, 86% of Likely Voters said radical Islamic terrorism is a threat to the United States.

It has been reported that the attackers in Paris shouted an Islamic expression of faith and also that they had avenged the prophet Mohammed after they killed several people in the magazine’s office. However, only 24% of Americans think the actions of the killers represent the true beliefs of Islam. Fifty-two percent (52%) don’t think their actions represent the faith, but another 24% are not sure.

By comparison, just 16% think the Taliban in Afghanistan represent true Islamic beliefs, and 27% say that of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

At the same time, most Americans (60%) don’t think it’s religious discrimination to refer to the killers as Islamic terrorists. Twenty percent (20%) do think it is discrimination to label the killers this way, but just as many (20%) aren’t sure.

The national survey of 800 American Adults was conducted on January 8-9, 2015 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Seventy-four percent (74%) of Americans are following news reports about the terrorist incident in Paris, including 37% who are following it Very Closely. The more closely one is following the story, the more likely he or she is to believe a similar attack could happen here and that the killers represent the true beliefs of Islam.

Women and Americans under 40 are less likely than men and older adults to believe the killers in Paris represent true Islamic beliefs and feel less strongly that a similar attack will occur in the United States.

But Americans of all ages agree that referring to the killers as Islamic terrorists is not religious discrimination.


Read it all. If only Americans knew what was in store for them. If only the media and politicians did their jobs. History tells us.

Muslims firebomb German paper that reprinted Charlie Hebdo cartoons

morgen-post-hebdo

via Arson at German paper that reprinted Charlie Hebdo cartoons (VIDEO) — RT News.

A German newspaper, the Hamburger Morgenpost, that reprinted the Charlie Hebdo cartoons says it suffered an arson attack overnight.

The incident happened at about 2 am local time. Unidentified people threw stones and an incendiary devices into the building housing the “Hamburger Morgenpost” tabloid newspaper in Hamburg, Germany’s second largest city.

“Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window,” a police spokesman told AFP. “Two rooms on the lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly.”

 

The attack was launched from a courtyard in the newspaper’s building and hit its archive room, where some files burned.

“It’s true: Tonight there was an arson attack on our newspaper,” the Hamburger Morgenpost said on Twitter.

Police have arrested two men who were behaving suspiciously in the area at the time of the attack, said the newspaper. The authorities have launched an investigation.

The Hamburger Morgenpost reprinted cartoons created by the Charlie Hebdo magazine whose HQ in Paris was attacked on January 7. Twelve people, including famous cartoonists, were killed in the massacre.

Meanwhile, German police arrested a suspected supporter of the so-called Islamic State (IS) and raided his home in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Reuters reports. The 24-year-old suspect is suspected of having joined the group following a year-long trip to Syria.

After the Paris shooting, the newspaper published three Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page. “This much freedom must be possible!” said the headline.

Police, however, didn’t comment on possible links between the arson attack on the German newspaper and the Charlie Hebdo massacre, saying it was “too soon” to know for certain.

 

 

 

French police kill Muslim savages, accomplice, who slaughtered Charlie Hebdo members, hijacked Jewish supermarket

si-mahomet-hebdo

via Charlie Hebdo suspects, accomplice, killed as twin sieges shake France.

French elite forces stormed two hostage sites Friday, killing the brothers behind the Charlie Hebdo massacre and a jihadist accomplice in a fiery end that also claimed the lives of four hostages.

The killings brought a dramatic close to three days of terror and high tension that began Wednesday when the two heavily armed Kouachi brothers burst into the satirical magazine’s office and slaughtered some of France’s best-loved cartoonists.

As shots and explosions rang out in the City of Light, five people, including the gunman, were found dead in the aftermath of the assault on a Jewish supermarket in eastern Paris and several captives were freed, security sources said.

Gunmen at both sieges told French TV they were acting together in the name of al-Qaeda in Yemen and the Islamic State group.

Seven people, including three police, were hurt in the supermarket raid with officers carrying some of the terrified hostages clear from the scene in their arms.

“It’s war!” screamed a mother as she pulled her daughter away.

An AFP reporter saw at least one body lying at the scene, where the sliding glass door of the shop was completely shattered.

The dramatic climax to the two standoffs brought to an end 53 hours of terror that began when the two brothers slaughtered 12 people at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in the bloodiest attack on French soil in half a century.

The weekly had lampooned jihadists and repeatedly published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed which angered many Muslims.

After the three days of bloodshed, France was mourning the loss of 17 people and tending to 20 injured.

Supermarket gunman Amedy Coulibaly told French TV he was a member of the Islamic State extremist group and had coordinated his atrocities with one of the Charlie Hebdo gunmen, Cherif Kouachi, who told television he was backed and financed by al-Qaeda in Yemen.

In a telling detail, revealed by BFMTV, the supermarket attacker did not hang up the phone properly after talking to its reporters, allowing the police to overhear him.

And it was as he knelt to do his evening prayer that they stormed the building.

President Francois Hollande said after the sieges had ended, the threats facing France “weren’t over.”

He described the attack on the Jewish supermarket as an “appalling anti-Semitic act” and said: “these fanatics have nothing to do with the Muslim religion.”

Hollande said he would attend a march of national unity on Sunday that is expected to draw hundreds of thousands including the leaders of Germany, Italy and Britain.

About 30 kilometres (16 miles) to the northeast, in the small town of Dammartin-en-Goele, the two Islamist Charlie Hebdo gunmen staged a desperate escape bid, charging out of the building all guns blazing at the security forces before being cut down in their tracks, a security source said.

Police confirmed their identity as Cherif and Said Kouachi, French-born orphans of Algerian origin.

The other hostage-taker in the eastern Porte de Vincennes area of Paris was also suspected of gunning down a policewoman in southern Paris Thursday.

French police released mugshots of Coulibaly, 32, as well as a woman named as 26-year-old Hayat Boumeddiene, also wanted over the shooting of the policewoman.

The Vincennes area was swamped with police who shut down the city’s ringroad as well as schools and shops in the area. Authorities ordered residents to stay indoors.

In Dammartin-en-Goele, only 12 kilometres (seven miles) from Paris’s main Charles de Gaulle airport, French elite forces had deployed snipers on roofs and helicopters buzzed low over the small printing business where the Charlie Hebdo suspects had been cornered early Friday.

Ahead of the stand-off, police had already exchanged fire with the pair in a high-speed car chase.

One witness described coming face-to-face at the printer’s with one of the suspects, dressed in black, wearing a bullet-proof vest and carrying what looked like a Kalashnikov.

The salesman told France Info radio that one of the brothers said: “‘Leave, we don’t kill civilians anyhow’.”

One 60-year-old choked back tears as she said how elite forces burst into the shop where her daughter works and ordered them to take cover.

“My daughter told me: ‘Don’t be scared mummy, we’re well protected. She was calm but me, I’m scared. I’m really scared,” said the woman.

Prior to the standoff, the suspects had hijacked a car from a woman who said she recognised the brothers.


4 hostages, killed in Paris; 16 hostages freed

France’s cowardly president lied directly to the French people, to himself and to the world in the face of the worst Muslim terror attacks to hit France:

A terrible antisemitic attack was committed today in the Kosher shop. Not to be divided means we must not make any confusion concerning these terrorists and fanatics that have nothing to do with the Muslim religion.

France: Muslim who shot & killed policewoman is from same jihad cell as Hebdo suspects

The cell is called Islam. via Paris gunman was from same jihadist cell as Hebdo suspects: police | Reuters.

The man suspected of killing a policewoman in a southern suburb of Paris on Thursday before fleeing the scene was a member of the same jihadist group as the two suspects in the attack at weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo, a police source told Reuters.

The assailant believed to be behind the shooting in the Montrouge area knew Cherif and Said Kouachi, the brothers suspected of killing 10 journalists and two police officers in Wednesday’s assault, the source said on Friday.

The man, wearing a bullet-proof vest and carrying an assault rifle and a handgun, fled in a Renault Clio from the scene after the attack and is still on the run.

Two people have been arrested in an investigation by anti-terrorist authorities, the source said.

The three men were all members of the same Paris jihadist cell that a decade ago sent young French volunteers to Iraq to fight U.S. forces.

Cherif Kouachi served 18 months in prison for his role in the group.

The Montrouge suspect was sentenced in 2010 for his role in a botched prison break-out of Smain Ali Belkacem, the author of a 1995 attack on the Paris transport system that killed eight people and wounded 120.

Cherif Kouachi was similarly implicated in that break-out attempt, but his case was eventually dropped.

The Kouachi brothers, at the center of a massive manhunt, are now holed up in a printing shop in the northern town of Dammartin-en-Goele and have taken a hostage, the authorities said.

The 751 (Islamic) No-Go Zones of France

hebdo-diversity

No go for non-Muslims. There are probably many more Muslim ghettos eight years on from this 2006 post via The 751 No-Go Zones of France :: Daniel Pipes.

They go by the euphemistic term Zones Urbaines Sensibles, or Sensitive Urban Zones, with the even more antiseptic acronym ZUS, and there are 751 of them as of last count. They are convienently listed on one long webpage, complete with street demarcations and map delineations.

 What are they? Those places in France that the French state does not control. They range from two zones in the medieval town of Carcassone to twelve in the heavily Muslim town of Marseilles, with hardly a town in France lacking in its ZUS. The ZUS came into existence in late 1996 and according to a 2004 estimate, nearly 5 million people live in them.

 Comment: A more precise name for these zones would be Dar al-Islam, the place where Muslims rule. (November 14, 2006)

Jan. 16, 2008 update: Paul Belien of Brussels Journal provides an update on the ZUS, connecting them to organized crime in a way that helps explain police reluctance to intervene:

In May [2007], the French voters elected Mr. [Nicolas] Sarkozy as president because he had promised to restore the authority of the Republic over France’s 751 no-go areas, the so-called zones urbaines sensibles (ZUS, sensitive urban areas), where 5 million people – 8 percent of the population – live. During his first months in office he has been too busy with other activities, such as selling nuclear plants to Libya and getting divorced. While the French media publish nude pictures of the future (third) Mrs. Sarkozy, the situation in the ZUS has remained as “sensitive” as before.

People get mugged, even murdered, in the ZUS, but the media prefer not to write about it. When large-scale rioting erupts and officers and firemen are attacked, the behavior of the thugs is condoned with references to their “poverty” and to the “racism” of the indigenous French. The French media never devote their attention to the bleak situation of intimidation and lawlessness in which 8 percent of the population, including many poor indigenous French, are forced to live. Muslim racism toward the “infidels” is never mentioned.

Xavier Raufer, a former French intelligence officer who heads the department on organized crime and terrorism at the Institute of Criminology of the University of Paris II, thinks that organized crime has a lot to do with the indifference of the French establishment.

The ZUS are centers of drug trafficking. According to a recent report of the French government’s Interdepartmental Commission to Combat Drug Traffic and Addiction (MILDT) 550,000 people in France consume cannabis on a daily basis and 1.2 million on a regular basis. The annual cannabis consumption amounts to 208 tons for a market value of 832 million euros ($1.2 billion in U.S. dollars). MILDT estimates that there are between 6,000 and 13,000 small “entrepreneurs” and between 700 and 1,400 wholesalers who make a living out of dealing cannabis. The wholesalers earn up to 550,000 euros ($820,000) per year. Since they operate from within the ZUS the drug dealers are beyond the reach of the French authorities.

The ZUS exist not only because Muslims wish to live in their own areas according to their own culture and their own Shariah laws, but also because organized crime wants to operate without the judicial and fiscal interference of the French state. In France, Shariah law and mafia rule have become almost identical.

Aug. 4, 2012 update: The French Interior Ministry has created a new type of no-go zone, called Zones de Sécurité Prioritaires (ZSP), or Priority Security Zones. The first batch contains 15 of them, basically the Muslim-majority regions of major cities like Lille, Paris, Strasbourg, Lyons, and Marseilles, as well as in French Guyana.

Aug. 24, 2012 update: Soeren Kern explains these new zones in “France Seeks to Reclaim ‘No-Go’ Zones.”


Kern adds more yesterday: Muslims segregated from French society in growing Islamist mini-states

“The situation is out of control, and it is not reversible,” said Soeren Kern, an analyst at the Gatestone Institute and author of annual reports on the “Islamization of France.”

“Islam is a permanent part of France now. It is not going away,” Mr. Kern said. “I think the future looks very bleak. The problem is a lot of these younger-generation Muslims are not integrating into French society. Although they are French citizens, they don’t really have a future in French society. They feel very alienated from France. This is why radical Islam is so attractive because it gives them a sense of meaning in their life.”

Mr. Kern said the connection between the attack and the Islamization movement is that French jihadis are becoming bolder in trying to stamp out any criticism of Islam.

“What they are trying to do is shut down any sort of criticism of Islam, any sort of speech, cartoons, discussion, anything,” he said. “Essentially, the French government and the other European governments have lost control over the situation. It’s a snowball that is growing bigger and bigger, in particular over the past 10 years.”

“Who has the right to say that France in 30 or 40 years will not be a Muslim country? Who has the right in this country to deprive us of it?” said Marwan Muhammed, a spokesman for Collective Against Islamophobia in France.

Keep in mind Obama’s State Dept has been coaching future politicians in these Muslim enclaves of Paris for several years.

Allen West provides a geographical reference:

France, which is roughly the same size as Texas. In fact, Texas is actually slightly larger (268,58 square miles to France’s 260,558).

Within this relatively small country you have 751 “sensitive zones” (Zones Urbaines Sensibles (ZUS)), where violence against white French citizens can be considered quite normal.
