Somebody wants France to be in perpetual strife it seems...

"France to rally in solidarity, defiance after beheading of teacher over Charlie Hebdo cartoons"

But under "Hate speech laws in France"...

We find...

Freedom of the press

The Law on the Freedom of the Press of 29 July 1881 guarantees freedom of the press, subject to several prohibitions. Article 24 prohibits anyone from publicly inciting another to discriminate against, or to hate or to harm, a person or a group for belonging or not belonging, in fact or in fancy, to an ethnicity, a nation, a race, a religion, a sex, or a sexual orientation, or for having a handicap. The penalty for violating this prohibition is up to a year of imprisonment and a fine of up to €45,000, or either one of those, as well as the suspension of some civil rights in some cases.

Articles 32 and 33 prohibit anyone from publicly defaming or insulting a person or group for belonging or not belonging, in fact or in fancy, to an ethnicity, a nation, a race, a religion, a sex, or a sexual orientation, or for having a handicap. The penalty for defamation is up to a year of imprisonment and a fine of up to €45,000, or either one of those punishments. The penalty for insult is up to six months of imprisonment and a fine of up to €22,500, or either one of those punishments.


Yet the Charlie Hebdo publishing house; sued by the body representing Islam, was exonerated 2-3 times by French courts of law despite the vile caricatures they would publish against Islam.

This is yet another example of the West’s hypocrisy and failure to put its actions where its mouth is, for the same courts of law are swift to condemn anti-semitism!
