France bans all Muslims’ political protests

Published on Sep 22, 2012 by PressTVGlobalNews
After a French newspaper sparked global outrage by publishing obscene images of the Prophet Muhammad, the state decided to forbid all protests by Muslims – and their threats have worked. The protestors who expressed themselves were immediately arrested.

Curiously, France is denying freedom of expression in order to defend the right to freedom of expression. The newspaper “Charlie Hebdo” is allowed to profit from a second printing of its scandalous cartoons, but Muslim political gatherings are banned to allegedly maintain order.

Denying Muslims the right to protest automatically implies that they cannot protest peacefully, despite evidence to the contrary just last week in Paris. But the decision feeds into a common Western narrative of Muslims as people who need to be controlled.

France averages 10 protests a day and this year only four have been banned. The nation’s well-armed security forces have a lot of experience handling demonstrations so many believe that stopping the protests is a political decision and not out of concern that things could spiral out of control

    “Curiously, France is denying freedom of expression in order to defend the right to freedom of expression. ”

    One of many paradoxes of the Western world, like
    –waging war to pacify a population
    –ethnic cleansing to promote multiculturalism
    – printing money at will to prevent inflation
    –canceling anti-trust laws to promote free trade

    Of course the French have acted that way. The leader of France is an Israeli.

    I just read that an Israeli is a leader of the French Green party too.

    If France is like Britain and the USA, I would guess close to 50% of “French” political, judiciary, education and health officials are Israelis.

        it’s called full spectrum dominance. the cowardly little peanuts running the jp establishment want to make sure they control all aspects of goyim life (jewish, too) so there is no challenge to their power that might send them scurrying into the bank vault.

    In Israel on the other hand they are itching to get some protests going:

    JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Three groups of Israelis were given a guarded tour of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem’s Old City, a religious foundation said Sunday.

    The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Heritage and Waqf (Islamic endowment) said 130 Israelis toured the holy compound accompanied by rabbis and soldiers, and performed religious rituals.

    It said the groups caused a state of tension with the several hundred students present in the mosque.

    The Al-Aqsa compound, containing the mosque and the Dome of the Rock, is the third holiest site in Islam and abuts the site where Jews believe the ancient Second Temple stood. Some in the far right in Israel propose building a Jewish temple on the sanctuary.

    The flashpoint site is under the custody of the Islamic endowment authorities, and visits by Israeli extremists have been roundly condemned by Palestinian officials.
