French Comic Dieudonné: 'Muslims and Christians Should Unite' Against The Jews
MEMRI ^ | 7-13-12

Posted on 07/13/2012 4:58:12 AM PDT by SJackson

In a video interview posted June 2, 2012 on the French Islamic site Islametinfo, French comic Dieudonné M'bala M'bala calls for a Christian-Muslim alliance to counter "those who persecuted Jesus Christ [who] are the same as those who persecuted the Prophet of Islam" – i.e. the Jews – whose "satanic spirit... is now heading the highest international institutions."

On May 11, 2012, a Canadian promoter cancelled shows by French comedian Dieudonné M'bala M'bala at Montreal's Corona Theater, citing "contractual conflicts." The cancellation followed complaints over the plans to host Dieudonné, whose comedy has long centered around antisemitic, and Holocaust-denying themes, resulting in numerous convictions for defamation, both in France and in Canada. Also that week, Belgian police banned Dieudonné from appearing in Brussels, after determining that the content of his show violated local laws. [1]

The following are excerpts from the interview:[2]

"Islamophobia Is Being Sold And Conveyed From Hollywood To The Eight O'clock [French] TV News"; "There Is A Hyper-Powerful Lobby Which Does Not Say Its Name"

Interviewer: "[...] For many years, you have been facing harassment: you are not allowed to play on stage. Do you believe that your critics are the same as those who create an Islamophobic climate in France?"

[...]

Dieudonné: "Yes, I believe there is today in France an increasingly powerful lobby. The empire never was as flamboyant and beautiful as on the eve of its chaos, which I wish for, by the way. This American-Zionist empire, the Zionist lobby, tells us what is right, whom we should laugh with today, what we should laugh about, what to eat, how to care for oneself.

[...]

"It is clear that Islamophobia is being sold and conveyed from Hollywood to the eight o'clock [French] TV news. They [both] deliver us exactly the same fiction. With Sarkozy, it was not bad [said with sarcasm]. Now [i.e. under French President François Hollande], I think things will remain the same. Nothing is going to change. So I can confirm it – I have observed it myself: there is a hyper-powerful lobby which does not say its name and which organizes censorship."

The CRIF Dictated What Presidential Candidate To Vote For; The Candidates Had To "Validate Ultra-Zionist Ideas"

Dieudonné: "The annual CRIF [Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions] conference is the most obvious expression that this lobby is powerful. The two presidential candidates attended [the 2012 CRIF conference], and it seemed up to CRIF president to introduce the candidates for whom we should vote. To become the French president, it was necessary to validate ultra-Zionist ideas." [...]

"Muslims and Christians Should Unite" Against The Jews; "Together We Will Be Able To Fight This Satanic Spirit Which Now Heads The Highest International Institutions"

Interviewer: "What do you think of Islam in France and of its followers? Is it a pool of resistance? Do you envisage possible axes and alliances?"

Dieudonné: "I think the believers of the world – Muslims and Christians – should unite. Those who persecuted Jesus Christ are the same as those who persecuted the Prophet of Islam. It is always the same people. These are the people who serve Satan, and I dream that one day there will be a union between Christians and Muslims, because it is this ability to gather beyond religious boundaries – in deep belief in God... I hope that these boundaries will disappear, because all together we will be able to fight this satanic spirit which is now heading the highest international institutions."

Interviewer: "Excellent. Dieudonné, you are a known resistor. What advice can you give to French Muslims?"

Dieudonné: "[...] I believe that Christ is also in Islam. I think we should avoid falling into the hands of those who systematically divide [between us]. True, the Christian religion has been widely infiltrated by Zionism, but Christ never was – no. We must discern [between the two].

"I think there are sincere people and I hope that Muslims gladly welcome other believers. I believe it is in the spirit of Islam [to welcome others] [...]. Islam provides a space where sincere believers should meet, at some point."

I’ve got a much better Idea Christians and Jews ought unite to oppose the Abd/ beguiled French “comic”? lest his stupidity infects others. This guy is as wicked as the Muslim Brotherhood.And as blind as Imam Rauf.Anybody who is united with the Muslim is a slave—or a fool.

“Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

Why should this man be allowed an audience for his poisonous views?

Idiot.

Jesus was a Jew.

All the Apostles were Jews.

All the first Christians were Jews.

God considers Israel the Apple of His Eye.

The Bible is loaded with as yet unfulfilled prophecies about Israel and the Jews.

Jews represent a tiny fraction of the Earth’s population, yet they out-perform every other ancestry in science, medicine, and the arts.

The pinnacle of Moslem achievement is the the 9/11/2001 attacks. They are famous mostly for beheading videos, stonings, mass murder, and genocide.

Why would any rational, sentient being favor the blood-lust and tyranny of the Moslems over the humanitarian contributions of the Jews?

Laugh while you can. A question for you. What is it you do not understand about “ The One who scattered you shall regather you” and “ No one shall pluck you off this land”. Here’s a clue, you better get a clue, and soon.

THIS is what passes for a comic in France? No wonder they like Jerry Lewis.

I thought we were done with this in 1945. Bad to see this anti-semitism coming back—well, you know, what ever is old becomes new again. Last time it didn’t work out so well.

Taht was not even remotely funny. The reasoning was sheer lunacy. What next from the moon/meteorite worshipers?

To any of you who still have misguided and false ideas about Jean-
Marie Le Pen and his daughter, Marine Le Pen, ponder this:

Jean-Marie Le Pen is the godfather (parrain) of Dieudonné’s daughter. He was present at the baptism.

Google “Dieudonne” “le Pen” for articles, pictures and videos.

Dieudonné is not a Muslim. He was raised Catholic.
This from Wikipedia:

“Dieudonné M’bala M’bala was born in Fontenay-aux-Roses, Hauts-de-Seine, the son of a white French painter and retired sociologist from Brittany who exhibits as a painter under the name Josiane Grué, and an accountant from Ekoudendi, Cameroon. His parents divorced when he was one, and he was brought up by his mother. He attended Catholic school, though his mother was a New Age Buddhist.”
