Charlie Hebdo Journalist: ‘Islam Must Submit to Criticism’
“I think that have not only the right to just say these things, but I think that in the current context, I also have the duty, because unfortunately, many voices have given way to the intellectual terror that is trying to impose this wall of silence on us,” explained the French-Moroccan.
The journalist, who has lived under police protection since a number of her colleagues at the satirical magazine were murdered by
radical Islamic terrorist devout Muslims for satirising the Prophet Mohammed, said she has received “Insults, racist insults, [and] threats of death or rape” since she insisted: “Islam must submit to criticism, submit to humor, submit to the laws of the Republic, submit to French law.”
“I have not changed my mind since,” she added defiantly in an interview with the Europe 1 radio station.
Yes. All should be accountable to the same laws. This should be taken for granted by all French authorities as a requirement for living in France and a prerequisite for entering it as an immigrant. But it isn’t. And that is an indication that France is in an advanced state of degeneration, and is likely not to last much longer as anything resembling a free society.
Moroccan-French journalist Zineb El Rhazoui says she has received death and rape threats for saying “innoccous” [sic] things like: “Islam has to submit to French laws, humour, reason and any form of criticism just like any other ideology, sect or religion”.
According to the former cartoonist of Charlie Hebdo “There is no valid reason for Islam to be an exception”.
This woman’s outrage is well justified. The French, and leftist strategy overall, is to lie, to deceive us, and to minimise the Islamic threat.

Speaking to Le Figaro about the situation, Professor Laurent Bouvet, of the University of Versailles-Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, suggested El Rhazoui’s treatment was a consequence of hosting Islamic radicals who “do not accept the secularisation of society and secularism as a regulatory principle.”
“They are unable to think of their faith in a world where it does not produce law… a significant part of the Muslims living in France today do not accept to put the law of the Republic before the law of God,” he warned.
Professor Bouvet also criticised the academic and media establishment for coddling Islam and affording it a certain privileged status.
“If Zineb El Rhazoui would have been threatened for criticising Judaism or Christianity, she would have been immediately defended, rightly, by those who are silent today because it is about Islam… This place apart reserved for Islam leads to permanently assigning to Muslims, in a collective and essentialised way, the role of victims,” he observed.
“The idea of suspending any critical reason, any feminist consideration, any humanism or universalism as soon as it is Islam or Muslims can only lead to the worst,” he added.
