France, Star Vega, May 21, 2010

Arab countries’ leaders from the Atlantic to the Gulf call the French president Nicolas Sarkozy and demand he shuts down the Cannes Film Festival, the French Riviera, and the collective district of Paris for being anti-Islamic and anti Semitic. The French President jumps at the command and orders the military to descend on the aforementioned areas and arrest everyone in them in preparation to banishing them to the mines for being un-French and rude. The Arab world also puts a ban on anything hyphenated with French-.

That above story occurred on Star Vega.

In the meantime on Planet Earth, Mr. Sarkozy’s cabinet is to examine a draft bill which will impose one-year prison sentences and fines of up to £14,000 on men who force their wives to wear a burka or a niqab.

Women themselves will face a smaller fine of just over £100 because they are “often victims with no choice in the matter“, says the draft.

The law would create a new offense of “incitement to cover the face for reasons of gender“. Source.

Two incidents took place within a week, both in France, and both very anti-Islamic. The two incidents are just the latest in a long line of hatred towards anything Arab or Islamic.

The first was referred to as ‘burka rage’ incident, where a lady lawyer attacked a fellow shopper because she was wearing a burqa and  after likening the lady to a horror demon character well known to French TV viewers she the older woman is said to have ripped the other woman’s veil off!!! Source.

I suppose the older lady was fighting for some ‘higher’ French values.

The second incident is even more bizarre; the Conseil supérieur de l’audiovisuel (CSA) – self titled An Independent Authority to Protect Audiovisual Communication Freedom – has demanded that Egypt shuts down Al Rahma (Mercy) satellite channel! The readymade charges were Anti-Semitism, hate speech, and disdain of the Jewish religion. Source (Arabic).

The Egyptian government for some mysterious reason complied! Although the channel, backed by millions of viewers worldwide, several MPs in the Egyptian parliament as well as several other channels are fighting the closure, and the time of writing are still on the air alhamdulillah.

The CSA had already taken steps to block Al Rahma from airing in France. Now the question is, if the CSA is charged with protecting the freedom of communication, why would it ban a channel? That is certainly against the so called Freedom of Speech. Then again, France is the only country on the world where one can get arrested, tried, and thrown in jail for speaking badly about Jews! Even if that person was speaking facts about what the Jewish state is doing to the Palestinians.

Some freedom of speech this is.

The historical fact is that France has always been the spearhead in the fight against Islam; they took part in every single crusade, and as of the 4th crusade they actually took charge of them. What Napoleon and his troops did to Al-Azhar in their campaign in Egypt is no secret; they turned it into a stable for their horses.

Then they gladly took part in the 1956 attack on Egypt after Egypt nationalised the Suez Canal, along with Britain and the Jewish state. They never forgave Egypt for helping the Algerian resistance.

And you have to talk to an Algerian or a Tunisian or a Moroccan to learn of the horrors they committed during their occupation of these nations which they occupied for about 130 years.

The French have no business telling us what to watch or what to do or what to wear, but it’s in their nature to think they are better than everyone else.

Surah As-Saff (The Row) 61:8 Their intention is to extinguish Allah’s Light (by blowing) with their mouths: But Allah will complete (the revelation of) His Light, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it).

    Star Vega? Been watching a little too much Grandizer have we?

    The French have a long history of hypocrisy. They, like england, are overwhelmed with the amount of Arab / Muslim immigrants that have relocated to their countries in the past few decades. The initiator of this of course is the occupation of the french of countries other than their own … which gave the right for those living in those occupied territories to be part of the french / english empires.

    Now if you didn’t want your population and culture to be diluted by absorbing non european / christian cultures then why did you constantly try to expand your borders beyond their current placement? And then afterwords why didn’t you accept the consequences of those actions.

    For the english or french to think that they need to maintain their pure christio-judaic cultures by oppressing the muslims living within their borders is hypocrisy , for them to claim that they are upholders of freedom but then turn around and force their culture and their ideals on others is hypocritical, for them to claim that they advocate free speech while forcing their hands on the mouths of others is hypocritical.

    It’s not enough that the french are xenophobic it is not enough that they are racist. No they crown their Soufflé of barbarism with hypocrisy.

    Ironically a good number of the people living where I do are Euro-French converts to Islam who have rejected what their country is instigating and, in fact, decided to reject what France stands for.

    I hope this trend continues. Amen.
