In France, as in many other countries, Jews are the principal architects of the laws designed to suppress free speech. In particular, they agitated for laws that would allow complaints to be registered and pursued by third party associations based on notions such as group libel or collective defamation. Jewish associations endlessly file charges on this basis against politicians or writers who stray outside the boundaries of kosher-approved thought.
Now they are hoist with their own petard. A Jewish "editorial director" of the "Museum of the Shoah" has been charged with inciting hatred through the following remark he made in a broadcast discussion. "In Arab families, in France, antisemitism is sucked up with the mother's milk." Predictably, Jews are now shrieking about the importance of free speech and casting the issue, as they tend to do all of their issues, in apocalyptic terms.
Wednesday 25 January 2017 will go down as a sad day in the annals of the French Republic. It was the day when France’s freedom of thought and expression went on trial: one of France’s leading historians, Georges Bensoussan, 64, was hauled up before a criminal court accused of ‘incitement to hatred.’ Arraigned against him was the Collective Against Islamophobia in France, together with various other ‘anti-racism’ groups.
The hearing went on for a gruelling 12 hours. At the end, a weary Bensoussan announced: ‘for the first time in my life I am having thoughts of leaving the country.’
The drama had begun 18 months earlier. During a TV discussion broadcast on 10 October 2015, Repliques, Bensoussan commented that France could not hope to integrate its Maghrebi immigrants unless it recognised that these immigrants imbibe antisemitism ‘with their mother’s milk’.
Georges Bensoussan, the son of Moroccan Jews, is one of France’s leading historians and editorial director at the Holocaust Memorial in Paris. The author of an 800-page volume on the uprooting of Jews from Arab countries, Juifs en pays Arabes: le grand deracinement 1850-1975, he claims that he was merely paraphrasing the words of a ‘brave’ Algerian sociologist, Smain Laachar. “Everyone knows it but nobody will say it,” Laachar had declared of Arab/Muslim antisemitism.
Laachar has since denied having said or written this ‘ignominy’. He said it was outrageous for Bensoussan to have claimed that antisemitism was transmitted by blood. ...Some have likened the Bensoussan trial to that of Galileo, whose discovery that the earth revolves round the sun put him on a collision course with established orthodoxy.Source
A Jewish association, LICRA, founded in the 1920s to justify Jewish terrorism (link), has joined the legal action against Bensoussan. This has prompted another Jew, Alain Finkielkraut, to resign from it in protest. Finkielkraut was Bensoussan's interlocutor in the original broadcast. Finkielkraut, Bensoussan and, someone I have mentioned before, Eric Zemmour, are among the better Jews in France. They are among the leading public critics of immigration and multiculturalism.
Bensoussan, for example, wrote "Les Territoires perdus de la République" [The Lost Territories of the Republic] in 2004, describing how parts of France had become Muslim ghettoes where established norms no longer prevailed. Recently he has published "Une France soumise : Les voix du refus" [A Subjugated France: Voices of Dissidents] about the colonisation of France by ethnic aliens and how fear of being accused of racism has cowed the population into silence. [I'll post more about this book at a later date.]
Of course, these Jews are principally motivated to challenge the immigrationist consensus because they see that it portends a future catastrophe for them, as Jews. But this challenge inevitably brings them into conflict with the infrastructure of multicult tyranny, one that has largely been created by Jews. Thus they are unable to defend themselves from the disaster they can see looming without being snared in their own traps.
