“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” said Hussein Obama, and judging by how those who tell the truth about Islam and jihad are smeared, demonized and marginalized in the U.S. today, it won’t be much longer before trials of this kind come to the U.S. as well.

Sharia in action in France:
- Ivan Rioufol was summoned to court under France’s strict press laws
- Objected to Collective Against Islamophobia In France poster campaign
- Says law has been used to ‘penalise criticism and intimidate journalists’
France, under the imbecile mullah Hollande, is prosecuting a French journalist Â under a 19th century press law for questioning Islam during a radio debate.
France’s 1881 Press Law was being used to ‘penalise criticism, intimidate journalists, censor the media’ and even ‘to reintroduce the offence of blasphemy’. Â Now the imbecile Hollande is using it to prosecute those who question Islam:
“French journalist is prosecuted under 19th century press law for questioning Islam during a radio debate”- from the Daily Mail
The 1881 law was nominally meant to guarantee the ‘freedom of the press’ but in fact criminalised a range of journalistic behaviour.
So called ‘press offenses’ ranged from insulting the President of France, to defaming private citizens through comment.
Mr Rioufol said about the case’s first hearing: ‘The judge reminded me that he himself had no opportunity to verify the existence of the alleged offense, the procedure – Press Law 1881 -Â leading automatically to court, where the case will be considered on its merits.’
Mr Rioufol said the law was ‘easily manipulated’ by those who wanted to persecute journalists.
A spokesman for CCIF said it had a duty to challenge ‘Islamophobia’ and the press laws were a logical way of challenging journalism it objected to.
‘Mr Rioufol will in court seek to prove that his words were true – one of the defences against defamation.’
