France in lockdown over Moe-toons, French gov’t orders 20 embassies, schools to close

Earlier today a kosher store in the Paris suburbs were bombed. 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 cartoon spurs French gov't to order embassies, schools to close, September 19,  THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (thanks to FS)

French weekly Charlie Hebdo publishes cartoons

PARIS – A French magazine published vulgar caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad on Wednesday, inflaming global tensions over a movie insulting to Islam. In response, the French government ordered embassies and schools to close Friday in about 20 countries.
The move by the provocative weekly Charlie Hebdo followed days of violent protests from Asia to Africa against the U.S.-produced film "Innocence of Muslims" and turned France into a potential target of Muslim rage. Up to now, American government sites have drawn the most ire.
Violence linked to the amateurish movie, which portrays the prophet as a fraud, a womanizer and a child molester, has killed at least 30 people in seven countries, including the American ambassador to Libya.
On Wednesday, several hundred lawyers protesting the movie forced their way into an area in Pakistan's capital that houses the U.S. Embassy and other foreign missions.
The United States temporarily closed its consulate in an Indonesian city because of similar demonstrations and hundreds protested the film in Sri Lanka's capital, burning effigies of President Barack Obama.
The French government ordered embassies and schools abroad to close on Friday, the Muslim holy day, as a precautionary measure in about 20 countries, according to the foreign affairs ministry. It ordered the immediate closure of the French Embassy and the French school in Tunisia, which saw deadly film-related protests at the U.S. Embassy last Friday.
The French Foreign Ministry issued a travel warning Wednesday urging French citizens in the Muslim world to exercise "the greatest vigilance," avoiding public gatherings and "sensitive buildings" such as those representing the West or religious sites.
At the same time, the country — which has western Europe's largest Muslim population — plunged into a new debate over the limits of free speech in a modern democracy.
France's prime minister said freedom of expression is guaranteed, but cautioned that it "should be exercised with responsibility and respect."
Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius warned that Charlie Hebdo could be throwing "oil on the fire," but said it's up to the courts to decide whether the magazine went too far.
The magazine's crude cartoons played off the film and ridiculed the violent reaction to it. Riot police took up positions outside the offices of the magazine, which was firebombed last year after it released an edition that mocked radical Islam.
Charlie Hebdo's chief editor, who goes by the name of Charb and has been under police protection for a year, defended the cartoons.
"Muhammad isn't sacred to me," he said in an interview at the weekly's offices on the northeast edge of Paris. "I don't blame Muslims for not laughing at our drawings. I live under French law; I don't live under Quranic law."
Charb said he had no regrets and felt no responsibility for any violence.
"I'm not the one going into the streets with stones and Kalashnikovs," he said. "We've had 1,000 issues and only three problems, all after front pages about radical Islam."
Government authorities and Muslim leaders urged calm.
"This is a disgraceful and hateful, useless and stupid provocation," Dalil Boubakeur, rector of the Grand Paris Mosque, told The Associated Press. "We are not Pavlov's animals to react at each insult."
A small-circulation weekly, Charlie Hebdo often draws attention for ridiculing sensitivity around the Prophet Muhammad, and an investigation into the firebombing of its offices last year is still open. The magazine posted a statement online saying its website had been hacked.
Abdallah Zekri, president of the Paris-based Anti-Islamophobia Observatory, said his group is considering filing a lawsuit against the magazine.
"People want to create trouble in France," he said. "Charlie Hebdo wants to make money on the backs of Muslims."
Charlie Hebdo was acquitted in 2008 by a Paris appeals court of "publicly abusing a group of people because of their religion" following a complaint by Muslim associations.
Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said organizers of a demonstration planned for Saturday against the "Innocence of Muslims" won't receive police authorization. Paris prosecutors have opened an investigation into an unauthorized protest last Saturday around the U.S. Embassy that drew about 150 people and led to scores of arrests.
The debate about the limits of free speech spread to neighboring Germany, where Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle spoke on the topic.
"I call on all those, especially those who rightly invoke the right of freedom of speech, to also act responsibly. The one who now puts more oil on the fire on purpose, with obvious effect, is not the greatest thinker," he said Wednesday in Berlin.
The German Embassy in Sudan, which was attacked last week, remains closed and security at German embassies in other countries has been beefed up, he said.
A German group in Berlin said it has dropped plans to show extracts of the film "Innocence of Muslims" because of the outcry it has caused.
The cartoonist of the French caricatures published Wednesday, who goes by the name Luz, was defiant.
"We treat the news like journalists. Some use cameras, some use computers. For us, it's a paper and pencil," he said. "A pencil is not a weapon. It's just a means of expression."
Outside the Charlie Hebdo offices, a passer-by wearing a traditional Muslim tunic said he was neither surprised nor shocked by the cartoons. He criticized France's decision to close embassies and schools for fear of protests by extremists.
"It gives legitimacy to movements that don't have any," said Hatim Essoufaly, who was walking his toddler in a stroller.
In Pakistan, the lawyers who protested in Islamabad shouted anti-U.S. slogans and burned an American flag after they pushed through a gate, gaining access to the diplomatic enclave before police stopped them. They called for the U.S. ambassador to be expelled, and then peacefully dispersed.
Much of the anger over the film, which denigrates Islam's Prophet Muhammad, has been directed at the U.S. government even though the film was privately produced in the United States and American officials have criticized it.
The U.S. Embassy in Indonesia sent a text message to U.S. citizens saying that the consulate in Medan, the country's third-largest city, has been closed temporarily because of demonstrations over the film. About 300 members of Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, a pan-Islamic movement, rallied peacefully on Wednesday in front of the U.S. consulate in Medan. Later, about 50 Muslim students also protested there. Both groups called on Washington to punish the makers of the film.
On Tuesday, Islamic militants sought to capitalize on anger over the film, saying that a suicide bombing which killed 12 people in Afghanistan was revenge for the video and calling for attacks on U.S. diplomats and facilities in North Africa.

  • Bravo Charlie Hebdo!! Isn’t it disgusting how we now have to live our lives in constant fear of what we say and do pertaining to Islam. This is BULL!!
    But THIS is how the Islamists want it.
    Don’t stand for it.
    As MLK used to say…”Speak without fear.”

    Here is the anglicized version of one of the most outrageous cartoons published today by the French periodical, Charlie Hebdo. It is about Muhammad’s sexual appetite for 9 year old Aisha. The link to the anglicized cartoon is http://i48.tinypic.com/157lnrs.jpg (muslims are definitely not advised to click on this link!)

    let’s hope so…

    At last, more and more people are turning on their presses and confronting jihad in the only non-lethal way open to us in the west. We are all bound to this one fate. We must defend them.
    Print, copy, paste, distribute, talk, listen and if needs be – confront. It’s this way or violence in resistance. Where is the front you say, the front is wherever a plot is hatched or a girl raped or a mosque preaches supremacy and separation, or a demo calls for beheadings or one kid in a school demands halal food or one muslim returns his ICE CREAM cornet because the swirl at the top spelt the name of allah,
    { yes, this did happen in UK a few years ago }.

    I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: “O Lord make my enemies ridiculous.” And God granted it.

  • Moslem rage is reaching critical mass. At some point if enough of this blasphemous art is published it could cause a collective Islamic coronary killing thousands.

  • Matilda Waltzinger

    Moe power to ’em. Vive le Resistance!!!
    I say, what. Stand up to the bullies. Don’t let them intimidate us or cause us to cower and comply with their hypocrisy. I do not respect power-grubbing pedophiles posing as prophets.

  • StepheN

    No! No free expression allowed; not by pencil and paper, nor by film, music, or writings. To “respect Islam” is to give up all rights to anything like freedom. That is the legacy you gain by throwing the Jews out and allowing the Muslims in. Enjoy the consequences of your actions. When these “holy ones” have destroyed the most beautiful art and culture in the entire world the old white French can weep and debate some more over Turkish coffee while they sit on sand and wonder why they actually never DID anything to prevent this!

  • Isabellathecrusader

    Well, if Muslim rage is reaching critical mass and they kill enough people maybe we’ll finally get off our butts and do something about it. We know our elected officials won’t.

  • Totally Domestic

    New strategy: Drive them all berserk. Watch them go into a frenzied head exploding rage…sit back and watch. Obama owns them!

  • Asha108

    Nothing else seems to word to get the savages to behave.
    Being nice and bowing and apologizing like dhimmie does not work.
    Let’s see what happens now.

    ‘Enflame’ away! All over the ‘infidel world’! Tasteless! Crude! Offensive! FREE! I’ve had it…how about you?

    In the humor or satire department, it’s actually quite lame:
    Google translate:
    the film that embraces the Muslim world.
    and my butt?
    You love my ass?
    film on Islam triggers con las rage fundamentalists
    show us an intelligent film and triggers the 3rd World War.
    no, it is the log 20 hours
    mohomet pushed the young unemployments
    muhammad a star is born
    stop messing around over muhammad
    I’m Jewish
    Salafist bullshit
    all pretexts are good
    another representation insulting our prophet
    riots in the Arab countries
    after the publication of photos of Ms. Muhammad
    johnny tweeted his return
    ah that is not easy to tweeter in the dark

  • Westergaard crossed a line in the sand when his cartoon of Muhammad wearing a bomb for a turban was created. The Charlie Heldo cartoon showing the prophet naked might have also crossed that line. But the ultimate cartoon is still on the drawing board, when released a billion Mujahedin will leave their prayer rugs and hunt for the Infidel who sketched the mother of Blasphemies.

  • Chris Wolf

    I don’t want to hear any more cheap chauvinistic shots at “the French,” as we see them taking the strongest push-back to radical militant disgusting Islam in the form of public banning of the veil and now these awesome Eff-Off cartoons.
    It would never occur to me to insult another’s religious beliefs, until I saw hysterical drooling Muslim animals murder Theo Van Gogh in the street, ambush and kill Ambassador Stevens and all the other insane reactions to what we know as “speech.”
    If this is what they do in the name of their religion (It’s more an ideology than a faith) we need a broad front across all free societies of these kinds of outrageous, insulting parodies. (I don’t imagine there is a word for parody in Arabic. A-Holes.)

  • This is all getting so surreal isn’t it? Some stupid film is immediatly blamed for muslim rage killing of…PEOPLE! More people are threatened over cartoons. Yet one of Obama’s biggest donors (MohaMaher) made a pretty bashFULL film trashing Islam and all religions basically. Don’t you think it would be cute if you took up a collection to send copies of his film to madrassas over there. Then we could start saying things like “Maher made Mo break it”.
    The best part would being Jay Carney deflect questions about Obamas bundler bashing his babies.

  • alyn21

    Vive Charlie Hebdo. I guess this proves that not all Frenchmen are cowards.

  • bb

    The French should not be hiding from the criminals. The military should be outside the schools with machine guns ready to mow down these Mo-mad, insane asylum rejects. Since when are the cirminals running the show? Get some courge, Frenchmen, and fight back. Are you men or Muslim dimhi mice? Now you can’t send your kids to school because Muslims don’t like a cartoon? Stop the madness.

  • Pathfinder0100

    Well said chowching–It’s past time for the people in the West to do as Hebdo did and stand up to the Muslim savages!!!

  • Nicola Timmerman

    Americans pride themselves on their freedom of speech, but actually the French have an incredible tradition of the fifth estate attacking everyone in power and getting away with it.
    Time for some Canadian media to show these cartoons – I won’t hold my breath for the dhimmi Quebec papers to do so.

  • a french

    you know nothing about history, united state is the little retarded brother of planet Earth.
    Your culture is nothing..you have nothing but cars and weapons, not even brains. You look like greek people who put money into switzerland for many years (700 millions of euros) and never pay taxes..and now they don’t have money anymore, they blame the foreigners..
    You disgust all the people, nobody like you. Some united statiens are kind and open, but in the average, just need to read what you all wrote.
