Dieudonne M’bala M’bala to Stand Trial in France Charge of Condoning Terrorism

Dieudonne M’bala M’bala

It’s official. So called French comedian, but really a Jew hater, Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, will stand trial in France on the charge of “condoning terrorism.”

The charges stem from what he posted on Facebook after last week’s horrible terrorist attacks in Paris. Dieudonne wrote on his Facebook page, “Tonight, as far as I’m concerned, I feel like Charlie Coulibaly.” This, of course, was a take on how people around the world have been saying “I am Charlie” in sympathy for French political satirist Charlie Hebdo who was murdered by terrorists in Paris last week. “Coulibaly” is the last name of the terrorist who murdered the four Jews last Thursday.

His lawyer, Jacques Verdier, said in defense of his client, “The prime minister said that under exceptional circumstances there should be exceptional measures and the first thing they did was to arrest Dieudonne.”

“He feels like he is Coulibaly because he is being treated like a terrorist in his own country. And the proof is that he was arrested as an apologist to terrorism. Now there is total confusion over something that was completely innocent, ” added Verdier.

Dieudonne was just one of dozens of people arrested in France this week over hate speech as the nation tries to come to terms with the terrorist assaults there. The French government has decided to crack down on all activities and speech that could be a threat to public safety and in anyway encourage or support terrorism. The country is even considering its own version of America’s Patriot Act.

In an open letter to the French Interior Minister Dieudonne wrote, “You are looking for a pretext to forbid me. You consider me like Amedy Coulibaly when I am not any different from Charlie.”
