Le Journal du Dimanche Poll: 42% of French Opposed to Charlie Hebdo’s Cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad

And you wonder why Western Europe is considered to have already lost the war on terror to Islam?

In a recent poll by Le Journal du Dimanche, 57% of respondents stated that ‘Charlie Hebdo’ should continue to print cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad; however, an amazing 42% oppose Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons of Muhammad. So I guess that these people do not believe in Je Suis Charlie Hebdo. With nearly 50% of French not believing in freedom of speech and freedom of the press, does anyone wonder why many believe that western Europe has lost the war against Islam? What else would you expect when you allow Muslim “free zones” within a sovereign country?

Free Speech NO2

More than 4 in 10 French people believe Charlie Hebdo shouldn’t publish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad, given that many Muslims find the images offensive, according to a recent poll by a French publication, published Sunday.

A survey conducted by Le Journal du Dimanche, a French weekly newspaper, presented participants with this information: “Some Muslims feel attacked or injured by the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.”

In the final tally of responses, 42% checked a box to indicate that the country should “consider these reactions and avoid publishing these cartoons,” while 57% of respondents checked “we should ignore these reactions and continue to publish such cartoons.” The remaining 1% checked “no opinion.”

Pope Francis Claims There Are Limitations on Freedom of Speech, ‘One Cannot Make Fun of Faith’ … REALLY?

POPE FRANCIS SAYS THAT YOU CANNOT MAKE FUN OF FAITH …

Following the radical Islam terror attack at Charlie Hebdo, the satirical newspaper that had made fun of the prophet Mohammad in the past, that left numerous dead, Pope Francis stated that there were limitations of freedom of speech and said, “One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith.” Really? SORRY PONTIFF, YOU COULD NOT BE ANY MORE WRONG. So let’s understand this, the Pope thinks that people do not have the right to make fun of religion? The Pontiff made his point by comparing it to if an individual cursed at his mother, that person would be punched. So is the Pope saying that ‘Charlie Hebdo’ brought this on themselves? Would he say the same about a rape victim?

A note to the Pontiff, blasphemy is offensive, cruel and pretty much wrong, but it is not illegal and does not warrant murder.That is what is supposed to separate Christianity from radical Islam. Sorry, but the very essence of freedom of speech is to defend the very words that you would disagree with, offend you and make your blood boil. Wasn’t it Jesus who told us to bless those who persecute us (Romans 12:14), to return love for hate and good for evil (Psalm 109:5), and even to love our enemies (Matthew 5:43-48). Loving your enemies would include supporting the fundamental commitment to free speech, and defending the right of free speech, even, or especially, for those who offend you. Why am I telling a Pope this?

Pope Francis suggested there are limits to freedom of expression, saying in response to the Charlie Hebdo terror attack that “one cannot make fun of faith” and that anyone who throws insults can expect a “punch.”

The pontiff said that both freedom of faith and freedom of speech were fundamental human rights and that “every religion has its dignity.”

“One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith,” he said. “There is a limit. Every religion has its dignity … in freedom of expression there are limits.”

The right to liberty of expression comes with the “obligation” to speak for “the common good,” Pope Francis said, cautioning against provocation.

To illustrate his point, he joked about Vatican aide Alberto Gasparri who was standing nearby on the plane.

“It’s true that we can’t react violently, but, for example if Dr. Gasbarri here, a great friend of mine, says a curse word against my mother, then a punch awaits him,” the pontiff said.

freedom-of-speech

Pope Francis also said that killing in the name of religion is an “aberration,” but adding that those who deride other faiths can expect to provoke a strong, even violent response. An aberration?

“One cannot react violently, but if [someone] says something bad about my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s to be expected,” the pontiff said. “There are a lot of people who speak badly about other religions. They make fun of them. What happens is what happens with my friend [who insults my mother]. There is a limit.”

The pope made the comments during an in-flight news conference from Sri Lanka to Manila, where he took up the second leg of a weeklong tour of Asia. He was greeted at the airport by President Benigno Aquino III and a performance by hundreds of jeans-clad young people. People cheered the pope’s motorcade to the residence of the apostolic nuncio.

In recent days, the 78-year-old pontiff strongly denounced the attack by two militant Muslim gunmen on Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical publication that has long derided Islam and other religions and their institutions, including the Vatican.

Two People Killed Thursday in An Anti-Terrorism Operation in Verviers, Belgium (VIDEO)

Two people jihadists have been killed and a another has been arrested in an anti-terrorism operation in  Verviers, Belgium. The individuals are believed to have links to ISIS and to have been planning attacks in Belgium.  The operation was intended to check on suspected radicals, one of several being conducted against people believed to have returned to Belgium after taking part in the Syrian civil war. As reported at the Jerusalem Post, public service radio RTBF said there were no casualties among the security forces involved. Two unidentified people were killed and a third seriously wounded. Several others were detained. This comes on the foot-heals of the terrorist attacks in Paris that left 17 dead. Looks like Europe may finally have gotten the wake up call on radical Islam.

Counter-terror police, in a series of raids, rounded up suspects they believed were intent on launching terror operations in Belgium, officials said.

At least two suspects died during the raids, and another was injured, officials told members of the media today. The officials said no police or civilians were injured after the suspects opened fire with automatic weapons.

Two people were killed Thursday in an anti-terrorism operation in the eastern Belgian city of Verviers, CNN affiliate VTM News reported.

The group is believed to have links to ISIS and to have been planning attacks in Belgium, CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank said.

Federal Belgian police took at least one suspect into custody near a train station, VTM News said. Further details weren’t immediately available.

Verviers is about 69 miles (111 kilometers) east-southeast of Brussels and 200 miles (322 kilometers) northeast of Paris.

The anti-terrorism raid comes amid heightened alerts in Europe after this month’s attack on the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Anti-terrorism operations were underway in other cities, a senior Belgian counter-terrorism official told Cruickshank.

The Telegraph – Casualties in Belgium police anti-terror raid in Verviers:

The suspects opened fire on police in Verviers, in the east of the country, before being killed, the prosecutor said. No policemen were injured during the operation, in which 10 buildings were searched.

The group was about to mount terrorist attacks on a “grand scale”, the prosecutor said.

“A second Paris has been avoided,” a ministry of justice source told Nieuwsblad newspaper.

Local residents in Verviers heard a fusillade of machine gun shots and explosions.

A local resident said: “I heard two explosions and saw two young men run away. They were between 25 and 30 years of Arab origin.”

UPDATE I: Belgium on high alert after deadly anti-terror raid.

Referring to the raid itself, he said: “The suspects immediately and for several minutes opened fire with military weaponry and handguns on the special units of the federal police before they were neutralised.”

Officials said police came under sustained fire from a flat above a bakery.

After the operation, four Kalashnikovs, bomb-making equipment and police clothing were found, according to local media. Security forces remain in the Verviers area.

Police are expected to provide more details at a briefing on Friday.

20 Year Old ISIS Sympathizer Christopher Lee Cornell (Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah) Arrested on Charges in Plot to Attack the U.S. Capitol & Kill Government Officials

20 year Ohio man arrested in terror plot … They walk among us.

20 year old Christopher Lee Cornell of Green Township, Ohio, was arrested Wednesday on charges of attempting to kill U.S. government officials in an alleged plot to attack the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. The terror attack by the 20 year old “Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah” on DC was radical Islam, ISIS inspired.  Cornell posted statements, videos and other content expressing support for ISIS and told an undercover FBI agent that that they should conduct “jihad” against the United States saying, “I believe that we should just wage jihad under our own orders and plan attacks and everything … I believe we should meet up and make our own group in alliance with the Islamic State here and plan operations ourselves.” The FBI said Cornell told the informant he planned to detonate pipe bombs at and near the Capitol, and use rifles to shoot and kill employees.

Christopher Lee Cornell, 20, of Green Township, was arrested on charges of attempting to kill a U.S. government official, authorities said.

According to government documents, he allegedly planned to detonate pipe bombs at the national landmark and open fire on any employees and officials fleeing after the explosions.

The FBI first noticed Cornell several months ago after an informant notified the agency that Cornell was allegedly voicing support for violent “jihad” on Twitter accounts under the alias “Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah,” according to charging documents. In addition, Cornell allegedly posted statements, videos and other content expressing support for ISIS — the brutal terrorist group also known as ISIL — that is wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria.

But of course we are not at war with radical Islam … Because Islam is a religion of Peace.

Cornell met with the informant in Cincinnati on Oct. 17 and 18, and said weapons were needed for an attack, the FBI said. He also showed jihadist videos and information about making bombs on his laptop computer, the FBI said.

The informant met with Cornell a second time on Nov. 10 and 11, and said he considered members of Congress enemies and wanted attack the Capitol, the FBI said. He said he would case out security before conducting the attack, the FBI said.

The FBI said Cornell told the informant he planned to detonate pipe bombs at and near the Capitol, and use rifles to shoot and kill employees. He made plans to get guns and make pipe bombs, and saved up money for the attack, the FBI said.

On Tuesday, Cornell and the informant discussed the final steps to go ahead to Washington, D.C., and on Wednesday, Cornell bought two M-15 semiautomatic rifles and 500 rounds of ammunition for the mission, the FBI said.

Cornell was arrested after he bought the guns, prosecutors said.

Obama White House Mouthpiece Josh Earnest: Charlie Hebdo Attacks Not Radical Islam … But Al Qaeda Claims Responsibility for Terror Attacks

Political Correctness Kills …

Yesterday in from of the White House press corps, Barack Obama spokesman Josh Earnest said it was “inaccurate” to use the phrase “radical Islam” to describe the attacks in Paris, France. HUH? According to the the Barack Hussein Obama White House it is inaccurate to call Islamic or radical Islam to describe Muslims who are murdering and dying for their religious beliefs, seriously? In other words, we are not allowed to call radical Islam for what it is, radical Islam. It is incredible to see the Obama administration bend over backwards and contort themselves to describe terrorism.

“I’m describing a reason why we have not chosen to use that label because it doesn’t seem to accurately describe what had happened.”

Maybe Josh Earnest, Barack Obama, Eric Holder and the rest of the lunatic fringe would like to take a listen and watch the video below where Al Qaeda was behind the terror attack.

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility Wednesday for last week’s rampage that killed 12 people at France’s Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper.

The attack was years in the making, AQAP claimed.

In a video, the group said the late Anwar al-Awlaki masterminded the attack. The U.S.-born Muslim scholar and cleric was spokesman for AQAP before his death in 2011.

Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Barack Obama & Eric Holder for Failing to Attend Paris March: “Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”

 ”Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”

From The Daily Show,  Jon Stewart rips President Barack Obama for not attending the ‘Unity March’ in Paris, France on Sunday as world leader came together for freedom and liberty and against radical Islam. Stewart mocked Obama saying, how could Obama not be there, look how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized to.” One would think that alone would have had Obama running to the event.

“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”

(The money comments begin around the 4:15 minute mark of the video)

THE BLAZE:

Stewart, visibly perplexed, questioned how the leader of the free world failed to participate in the march.

How can Obama not be there?” he asked. “Look at how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized. He missed an opportunity.”

“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”

Stewart then slammed Attorney General Eric Holder for not representing the U.S. at the march, even though he was in Paris as it took place.

“What the f***?” the comedian said. “Eric Holder, you were in France! In Paris! At the time of the march and were like, ‘eh’?”

“Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally and the U.S. was a no-show? It’s going to take a lot to make up for this.”

Fox News Ed Henry Confronts WH Spox Earnest on Upcoming Summit on Countering Violent Extremism Why Didn’t You Send Someone to Paris?

Obama White House Spokesman Josh Earnest grilled like a tuna …

Fox News’ Ed Henry confronted WH spox Josh Earnest on Barack Obama’s upcoming Summit on Countering Violent Extremism. Missing from the title, “radical Islam.” The PM of France says its a war against radical Islam but the Obama administration cannot. Not Obama’s folks … it will be a summit against all violent extremism like that from the extremist Quakers, the extremist Buddhists and let us not forget the extremist Amish.

Henry would also later ask why the Obama administration did not even send the DC dog catcher to the Unity march.

Josh Earnest had to use the obligatory catch phrase, Islam is a peaceful religion. Hey Josh, straight from the Imam’s mouth … Islam is a religion of submission.

Mediaite:

“We want to try to mitigate the impact the security precautions would have on those attending the public event,” Earnest said, citing the fact that the outdoor march came together with only 36 hours’ notice, and that the security required to protect a high-level American official would have distracted from the march.

“Of course, the President’s safety is of the utmost importance, you don’t want to distract,” Henry acknowledged. “But then how do you explain the presence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? He made it there. He’s a huge target, unfortunately.” In fact, Henry added, “dozens” of leaders were there, leading to another back-and-forth about security, Nelson Mandela’s funeral, what Eric Holder was doing if not marching, and what Obama himself was doing on Sunday — a question Earnest had no answer for.

Obama White House Says, It’s Fair to Say We Were Wrong on Paris Unity Rally … WH Caught with Its Pants Down or Purposeful Decision?

Sorry Barack Obama, this is a little bigger than, oh sorry, my bad.

The Obama administration is in full spin CYA mode in the wake of the outrage of U.S President failing to attend the “Unity” march with numerous other world leaders as he opted to stay home instead and watch football. Quick, get the PR machine out there to lie to the media and people. White House spokesman Josh Earnest did his best to spin his way through the disastrous visuals and symbolism of Barack Obama or any other high level US leader being present for the march against radical Islam. White House spokesman Earnest said, “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.” What ever do you mean, you mean sending no one of any importance what-so-ever was wrong? None of you could have figured this out in advance? Sorry, but that is BS. Obama told us all in the past that Bin Laden was dead and terrorism was on the run. To suddenly acknowledge that France just had their own 9-11 moment would go against Obama’s down playing of terrorism.

Barack Obama could not be reached for comment he was too busy

The White House said Monday that it made a mistake in not sending President Obama or a top administration official to the weekend unity march in Paris, a rare concession that it had botched the optics of an important international event.

“It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his briefing, which was dominated by questions about the march.

“We want to send a clear message, even in a symbolic context like this one, that the American people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies in France,” said Earnest. “And sending a high-level, highly visible senior administration official with a high profile to that march would have done that.”

He dodged questions about who was responsible for the decision to have the U.S. be represented by the U.S. ambassador to France, saying only that it was a staff-level call the president was not personally involved in.

So, some how Barack Obama and his minions could see the importance of sending people to Ferguson, Missouri and to the funeral of an individual who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, but they could not see the importance of supporting one of America’s greatest allies in France and 40 world leaders coming together in a show of solidarity against radical Islam.

UPDATE I: The Politico – White House was out of step as Paris march grew.

The JV Presidency.

Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?

Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.

White House aides were so caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention that they hadn’t even asked President Barack Obama if he wanted to go.

Radical London Imam Anjem Choudary Admits Islam is not a Religion of Peace, ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF SUBMISSION

IT TURNS OUT THAT ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE AFTER ALL …

Love him or hate him, at least London Imam Anjem Choudary speaks the truth. Last Wednesday during an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Hannity and  Choudary discussed Islam and its views toward the world, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, woman, gays and other social issues. However, the money line of the contentious interview was when London Imam Anjem Choudary stated  that Islam is not a Religion of Peace …Islam does not mean peace, Sean, it means submission, submission to the commands of God.”

 “You’re saying you do not believe in freedom of speech, you don’t believe in freedom of expression, you believe in Islamic fascism, that people must abide by your laws,” Hannity said.

“Actually, as a Muslim, we believe that sovereignty and supremacy belongs to God and therefore we believe in submitting to the commands of God,” Choudary said.

Hannity asked him, “So you’re saying anything offensive about the prophet Muhammad should be illegal and it should be worldwide?”

Choudary told Hannity that in Islam, that carries capital punishment.

Transcript of last Wednesday’s broadcast of Hannity from RCP:

HANNITY: So what you’re basically saying is freedom of expression does not extend to insulting the prophets of Allah, whatever your views on what happened in Paris. So you’re saying you do not believe in freedom of speech. You don’t believe in freedom of religion. You don’t believe in freedom of expression. You believe in Islamic fascism, that people must abide by your laws!

ANJEM CHOUDARY, LONDON IMAM: Actually, as a Muslim, we believe sovereignty and supremacy belongs to God. And therefore, we believe in submitting to the commands of God–

HANNITY: Well, you’re demanding–

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: But you’re not– no, you’re demanding everybody else submit to what you believe–

CHOUDARY: No. No, what we say–

HANNITY: –and it should be–

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: Well, that’s what you said. You said freedom of expression–
