Islamic intimidation and jihad violence has its way. Dhimmitude.
That is also the price of believing the lie: ”that Islam is basically a moderate belief system like all others, except for a few radicals who are currently subverting the faith for their own purposes, Islam is peaceful as it always has been. But that’s of course a stinking, steaming pile of pure pig crap.
Almost half of those in France believe cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed – like those printed by satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo – should not be published, a poll said Sunday, with a similar number in favour of “limitations” on free speech.
The recent attack by Islamic extremists at the offices of Charlie Hebdo that killed 12 people in apparent revenge for publishing cartoons of Mohammed has led to a fierce defence of France’s freedom of speech laws by politicians, media and millions of French citizens – including at a huge unity march in Paris on January 11.
But an Ifop poll published in France’s Journal du Dimanche (Sunday Journal) paints a much more divided picture of French attitudes towards what is considered a key facet of the country’s republican values.
Conducted last week in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo killings, the poll found that 42 percent of French people oppose the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed, which are considered blasphemous and highly offensive by many Muslims.
Half of those questioned also said they believed there should be “limitations on free speech online and on social networks”.
However, 57 percent said opposition to the cartoons from Muslims should not stop them from being published.
