Charlie Hebdo - further Western hypocrisy

In an earlier post Defending Ngeh's Tweet on provocative film I commented on the hypocrisy of the West, in their constant bleating about freedom of expressions and speech BUT in the same breath reneging on such so-called claims of free expressions and speech when it comes to criticisms on anything Jewish.

I posted several glaring examples of such Western hypocrisy but an example I forgot to include has been the French magazine Charlie Hebdo's publishing (by Wednesday tomorrow) of cartoons of Prophet Mohammad, following the Muslim World's protests against an anti-Islam film by Sam Bacile or Nakoula Basseley (or allegedly/purportedly the man behind it all, Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Centre).

The French Foreign Minister was pissed off with the magazine's proposed publications and stated "In France, there is a principle of freedom of expression, which should not be undermined. In the present context, given this absurd video that has been aired, strong emotions have been awakened in many Muslim countries. Is it really sensible or intelligent to pour oil on the fire?"

Charlie Hebdo's director, Stephane Charbonnier, pompously claimed that his magazine was not really fuelling the (angry Muslim) fire but rather using its (that thick-skinned hypocritical claim again) 'freedom of expression' to comment on the news in a satirical way. Its editor responded to the French ministerial rebuke: "We do caricatures of everyone, and above all every week, and when we do it with the Prophet, it's called provocation."

'Freedom of expression'?

But then, can Charlie Hebdo please explain why its former cartoonist Siné (real name Maurice Sinet) was sacked in 2008 for his cartoon-article on the marriage of Jean Sakorzy, the son of France former president, to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, a Jewish heiress, after a (obviously) Jewish journalist described Sinet's comments as anti-Semitic.

Maurice Sinet

The mayor of Paris and the French Minister for Culture immediately jumped on the bandwagon of European cringe towards anything Jewish to condemn Sinet.

Now, what was it that Sinet wrote of young Sakorzy that was considered so offensive to Jews?

Sinet said of the young bridegroom: "He'll go a long way in life, this lad!"

Whether Sinet was referring to the heiress' wealth or Jewish heritage was not known but regardless, please tell me, how was it anti-Semitic?

Nonetheless, it was immediately seized upon as an anti-Semitic insult. It was an European salutary lesson that no one must ever question or criticize or even, as in Sinet's case, make a remark about a Jew (unless it's complimentary or respectful), regardless of the veracity of the issue. Author David Irving found that out when he was jailed for questioning the Holocaust figures on Jews killed by Nazis (not the Holocaust itself).

Compare Sinet's comment on that marriage to the deliberate insult to Prophet Mohammad by way of cartoons.

Now, surely the next part must be the ultimate in western hypocrisy, the breath-sucking balls-squeezing Mother of all European hypocrisy.

The editor of Charlie Hebdo, Phillippe Val, the man who made the highly controversial and inflammatory decision to re-publish a Danish newspaper's cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed two years earlier in the name of (yes, that old West most hypocritical claim) ‘freedom of the press’, agreed that Sinet’s remark about young Sakorzy was offensive and anti-Semitic and warned the journalist-cartoonist to write a letter of apology or be fired.

Freedom of the press? Where was it? Liberté d'expression? Où était-ce?

I wonder what is French for ‘You f* hypocrite’!

Anyway, Sinet gave him two fingers and replied he would rather "cut his own balls off". He was promptly fired by Charlie Hebdo but sued the publisher and won a 40,000-euro court judgment for wrongful job termination.

Incidentally he was also threatened by the Jewish Defence League (JDL) which posted on its website "20 centimetres of stainless steel in the gut, that should teach the bastard to stop and think" - f*, just for commenting that Jean Sakorzy will go a long way in life because of his marriage?

So don’t think only Muslims are given to violent thoughts.

So why are Malaysian Muslims particularly UMNO and PAS political leaders continuing to dance to the tune of Zionists pulling the strings behind those deliberate insults to Islam?

Surely it's not for their own political interests? If so, then the hypocrisy would be equally breath-taking.


  1. You have something against Jews ?

  2. This is one of those "Lose-Lose" arguments in human society, so I won't try to prove who is right. I can only point to the historical, economic, political and social realities.

    a)The disproportionate level of control (relative to their numbers) of those of the Jewish faith over the financial assets and levers of power in Western society.
    That's simply a statement of fact, without prejudice.
    You can blame it on the Medieval Church ban on Christians profiting from usury.

    b) Residual guilt in many European societies over the Holocaust, either because of their Active Participation (Germany, Austria, Italy) or Passive Consent (Vichy France, occupied Denmark, Holland), or failure to stop Germany in the early stages (US, UK)

    c) The violent hostility being continuously and very publicly exhibited by many Muslims towards anything Western. This is hardly conducive towards generating any sense of empathy / sympathy towards their cause.

    d) The tendency by a majority of Arab and Muslim countries to align themselves politically towards the Soviet bloc for almost the entire period of the cold war. In the lifetime of many of those in the West, "Arab" meant "hostile".

    e) More than One thousand years of continuous, unending warfare between Muslims and Christian empires.
    Byzantine Empire vs. Abbasids then vs. Ottomans, The Crusades (several), Siege of Vienna,the Muslim conquest of Spain, The Balkans, Lepanto, European colonisation of East Asia, the fall of the Ottomans etc.

    It is the longest running inter-civilisational conflict in world history.
    It may someday yet lead to the ultimate end of human history.

  3. "Anyway, Sinet gave him two fingers and replied he would rather "cut his own balls off".

    Bravo Sinet !

    In Malaysia....Bravo, Shaun Tan !

    Let's put our foot down !

    Pakistani dies of Smoke inhalation from burning American flag....

    I'm sure he'll go straight to heaven to meet his perfect houris....

  5. Anon of 4:47 PM, September 25, 2012, Not Jews in particular - watch out for my next few posts to understand what I mean.

    Anyway, this post is about western hypocrisy in claiming they print anything on principles of freedom of expression, which they won't when it comes to matters Jewish, demonstrating their anti-Islamic bias (disguised under 'freedom of expression' - pordah to those liars!).

    1. In fact this magazine, Charlie Hebdo not only make satire about Islam, but about judaism and christianity as well. Also about politicians. But those other groups they criticise or make fun of did not response in violent ways except the muslims.

  6. He has something against everyone.
    He is the perfect man.

  7. Deutschland über alles12:26 pm, September 26, 2012

    Bravo Ktemoc ! Your series of articles have done an excellent job exposing an insiduous Zionist conspiracy.

    In recognition of your services to the Fatherland, You have been awarded the Companion of the Iron Cross, 3rd Class.
    This is the highest civilian recognition accorded to a non-Aryan by the Reich.
    Recent winners have included Bashar Al-Assad and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, so rest assured you are part of an august group.
    In case you asked, unfortunately the 2nd and 1st Class awards can only be accorded to Whites of the Nordic genotype, so...too bad.

    On behalf of the 6th Fuhrer of the Fourth Reich I wish to extend his warmest greetings and congratulations.

  8. Hi Deutschland über alles, you tu zionist ke ?

  9. Lol, leave it to LaTuff to hilariously over simplify things for his own infantile POV. Maybe a bit of university would do him some good!

  10. HAHAHAH CENSORSHIP? REALLY? You lot can't hold up in the light of the free market of ideas, can you? Grow vertebrae, poof.

    1. brilliant comments (both above, no doubt by same author), of childish abuse in the face of facts, wakakaka

      ya, bomb and machine-gun those Palestinians, how dare they stop Israelis from robbing their land, wakakaka

  11. RIP to the victims of Muslims during the massacre at Charlie Hebdo today.

  12. Quick to judge just like 9/11. Cheering mossad

  13. There is no comparison here at all. The writer is comparing a cartoon or story about Muslims that the simple act or writing or drawing it offends them vs the act of attacking Jews outright. Not even close to the same.

    1. This is a post on teh western press' double standards hypocrisy, with the example of Charlie Hebdo in particular. So where's your alleged "comparison" of drawings versus attacking Jews???

      Get your facts correct before you talk nonsense

    2. Yup, total hypocrisy. Holocaust deniers are thrown in jail, without a peep from the prestitutes. Jews don't need assissination because the goyim Western establishments do the persecuting for them.
      Any anti jewish/antizionist cartoons from Charlie Hebdo, link?

  14. The first half of the cartoon should have shown the cartoonist with a bullet through his brain or him being beheaded. That would have been a, you know... "accurate" portrayal of reality. If you're actually interested in such a thing, of course.

  15. >it's okay to insult muslims but not jews

    What kind of ass backward socialist hypocrisy do you live in? You can't say anything remotely critical of Islam or else you're labeled an islamophobic bigot, whereas you're encouraged to insult, assault, and threaten Christians and Jews in order to be considered "progressive" and "intellectual." All you angry Eurosocialist bigots ever do is blame and accuse jews of allegedly owning the banks and the media, and slandering Israel, the one democracy in the Middle East that protects the rights of women, religious minorities, and homosexuals, of being an "apartheid terrorist state." Every time Islamic terrorists attack and murder Christians, Jews, and other non-muslims, you shamelessly resort to your revenge politics and moral relativism and instead whine about some alleged "islamophobic backlash." You don't care at all about hate crimes or genocide against Christians because you're just as Christophobic as these Islamic fanatics with your death threats, hate speech, censorship, and unapologetic assaults and hate crimes, including executing anyone who self-identifies as Christian. That is why you side with Islamic terrorists; you hate everything and everyone they hate.

    As for the hijab, western women have the freedom to wear whatever they choose. If a woman in a Sharia society wears anything else, she'll be lashed, stoned, or hanged. That is not freedom and none of your moral relativism denial can hide that.

    You liberals do nothing but project your own hateful ignorance because you're too intolerant, closed-minded, and delusional to actually listen to what the other side has to say.
