Under the sharia, insulting their prophet is punishable by death. Under the Third Reich, insulting their prophet was punishable by death. Same murderous type of ideology.
The "genius" of the imposition of Islamic oppression and subjugation is playing the victim. Nazi propagandists under Goebbels did this as well. It's all victim mythology, just as Muslims employ in their war on freedom. In trying to impose the suffocating and oppressive restrictions on free speech, they claim that "French Muslims complain of growing restrictions on their religious freedoms."
Muslims have already firebombed the magazine offices of the free speech heroes at Charlie Hebdo magazine. A kosher store in the Paris suburbs was also bombed (this is a default position for agitating jihadists -- when in doubt, kill some Jews. That's holy moe-ly). French embassies and schools were closed in fear of these savages. Despite the West's delusion and denial, we are at war. Freedom of speech in the age of jihad. Stand up, fight back. Do not sacrifice freedom so as not to offend savages.
"Charlie Hebdo's chief editor, who goes by the name of Charb and has been under police protection for a year, defended the cartoons."I'm not the one going into the streets with stones and Kalashnikovs," he said.
What they failed to blow up and murder in their bombing, they hope to achieve in the litigation jihad. Bankrupt them.
French Muslims Sue Anti-Prophet Magazine
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - The drawings were “damaging to the honor and reputation of the Prophet Muhammad and the Muslim community” the complain made by the Algerian Democratic Union for Peace and Progress (RDAP) and the Organization of Arab Union was cited by France 24 on Friday, December 7.
The court action is to “defend and support Islamic and/or Arabic people”.
The two Muslim organizations are claiming a total of €780,000 in costs and damages.
Fuelling anti-Muslim sentiments, the French weekly Charlie Hebdo published cartoons displaying a man said to be the prophet as ..... .
Published last September, the French drawings come amid turmoil in the Muslim world over an American-made movie defaming the Prophet.
The film triggered protests in several countries around the world, which left at least 14 people dead, including the US ambassador in Libya.
At the time, Charlie Hebdo's editor, Stephane Charbonnier, described those getting irate over the cartoons as "ridiculous clowns" and accused the government of pandering to them by criticizing him for being provocative.
Rejecting the charges, Richard Malka, lawyer for Charlie Hebdo, slammed them as “exorbitant”.
The “accusations” do not take into account the fact the cartoons were made by a satirical magazine, Malka said.
“Once again they are trying to create fear to inhibit the French tradition of satirizing religions,” Malka added.
Stressing the difference between freedom of speech and dangerous provocation, the two organizations accused the French magazine of stigmatizing the Muslim minority.
“They stigmatized Muslims and provoked hatred,” their lawyer Anthony Bem told Agence France Presse (AFP), adding that "caricatures does not mean anything goes”.
September’s publication of the cartoons was not the first time Charlie Hebdo had provoked Muslim ire.
In 2011 its offices were firebombed after it published an edition "guest-edited by Muhammad", which the satirical weekly called Shari`ah Hebdo.
France is home to a Muslim minority of six million, Europe’s largest.
French Muslims have been complaining of growing restrictions on their religious freedoms.
