French 'comedian' fined 10,000 euro for anti-Semitic stunt

A French 'comedian' has been fined 10,000 euro for an on-air anti-Semitic stunt (Hat Tip: NY Nana).
This time, Paris judges fined Dieudonné €10,000 for "public anti-Semitic insults" and awarded €10,000 in legal costs to the eight organisations that sued him, including SOS Racisme, Union of Jewish Students in France and the J'Accuse association.


SOS Racisme said: "We are quite satisfied with this decision. This shows yet again that Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala is not a comedian but uses that label to express his hatred."

But lawyer Stephan Lilti, who represented the UEJF and J'Accuse said he was disappointed with the verdict. He told Paris Match: "Dieudonné has been convicted three times for the same reason in 2007 and 2008, and he has never paid his fines."

The groups' complaints stemmed from a stunt during a stand-up show where Dieudonné invited convicted Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson to receive an award from an actor dressed as a concentration camp victim.

He was previously fined €5, 000 in November 2007 for comparing Jews to “slave-traders”. Two months previously, he called Holocaust Memorial Day “memorial pornography”.

He said: “For them, if a child at school is called a ‘dirty Jew,’ they are up in arms. To me, Zionism is the AIDS of Judaism. The Zionists have claimed a monopoly on suffering.”

Dieudonné has also used the murder of Ilan Halimi as material for comedy in his one man show.

After Mr Halimi was murdered, Julien Dray, the (Jewish) spokesperson of the Socialist Party said: “There is an antisemitism embedded in French society, and there are certain people who are symbolic of this.

“I will say it clearly. There is a Dieudonné effect.”
The issue isn't the level of the fines (a joke for someone in the entertainment business) or whether he pays them. The issue is that this guy should not be on the airwaves. Consider what happened to Don Imus in the US after he made racist, sexist comments about a women's basketball team.

I know, I know. Dieudonné only insulted Jews. And in France to boot.

Thanks for the hat tip. Dieudonné infuriates me, and has ever since I read about his first anti-Semitic rant.

He gets away with it yet again, and the 10,000 euros he was fined this time do not even begin to address his vile hate.

French Jewry, what is left of it, really needs to leave now. And looking at the situation in the UK? The same. I was born just before WWII,safe and sound in Brighton,MA, and when I learned about the aftermath, and the hesitancy of European Jews to leave? My grandparents' families HY"D, on both sides, that still lived in Lithuania, were never heard from again.Never. Luckily there were some who came to the States in the early 1930's. I thought that the lesson was learned, yet now? It seems that they either think 'Never Again' means that it cannot happen, not another Shoah...but I fear that it can. And now? There is an elephant in the room, and it is being ignored by far too many millions.

The State of Israel was founded, I feel, because of the Shoah, as it was not a Jewish state pre-war. It is there for them to make Aliyah NOW, as Jew-hate has become so fashionable again.

And the Dieudonnés of Europe are getting louder and louder, and more threatening.

No. Actually the Muslims "have claimed a monopoly on suffering."

salop-donné is a piece of trash
