France: Jews Ban Arab TV
- Jewish organizations behind Al Manar ban in France: Faurisson
Tehran Times Political Desk
TEHRAN (MNA) Dec. 19, 2004 -- The Mehr News Agency recently
conducted an interview with Professor Robert Faurisson, a former
lecturer of Lyon University, about France's decision to ban the Al
Manar satellite television network. Following is the text of the
interview: MNA: France's highest administrative court, the Council
of State, last week moved decisively to ban Al Manar television,
alleging that the network had repeatedly violated the country's anti-
hate laws and ignored its own pledge to avoid making anti-Semitic
statements. What is your view of the decision?
Faurisson: Unfortunately, it is totally normal. In France, Jewish
organizations get whatever they demand. And especially the Conseil
Representatif des Institutions Juives de France (CRIF), headed by
former banker Roger Cukierman,who was very instrumental in the
campaign against Al Manar.
MNA: Do you think the Zionist lobby in the U.S. influenced France's
decision to ban Al Manar?
Faurisson: In France Jewish power is even stronger than in the USA.
In France it is our lobby number 1. Nobody dares to speak out
against those people because of their alleged "Holocaust".
MNA: France claims it is a pioneer in freedom of expression, so how
do you evaluate this claim? Isn't the recent decision against
freedom of expression and human dignity?
Faurisson: Please, don't be naive! In 1789, France said: "Liberty,
Equality, fraternity." Three years afterwards, France began massive
killings of French citizens in the name of "Liberty, Equality,
fraternity." It is an old tradition to say something and to do the
contrary. In the Book of Laws, we have one sentence to say that
freedom of opinion, of press, of research is a principle and then we
have pages and pages for explaining that that freedom is so
important that it needs to be protected by dozens of prohibitions,
exceptions, bans, etc.
MNA: Actually, France doesn't respect the rights of its citizens, as
it has banned the hijab (Islamic headscarf) in public schools. How
do you assess that?
Faurisson: Because Jews, in a certain way, are used to treating the
French as they treat Palestinians. The difference is that
Palestinians refuse to obey the Jews, whereas the French obey the
Jews, once more because of the Big Lie of the alleged "Holocaust",
in which unfortunately they seem to believe. The alleged "Holocaust"
of the Jews is the sword and the shield of the Jewish tyranny all
over the world. Destroy it!
