Marine Le Pen faces prison for condemning ISIS horrors

Marine Le Pen, Front National leader, faces up to three years in prison following charges for retweeting a series of ISIS images on Twitter in 2015 to condemn the violence of the jihadists. In France, it is now illegal to provide photographic evidence of extreme Islamic brutality.

    She told AFP: “I am being charged for having condemned the horrors of Daesh [ISIS]. In other countries this would have earned me a medal.”

    She had called the complaints “political interference” earlier when European Union lawmakers lifted the EU parliamentary immunity which had shielded her from legal action.

    Le Pen retweeted the images from social media showing how ISIS had carred out gruesome atrocities only after her party had been likened to the terror group. French TV presenter Jean-Jacques Bourdin, had accused the Front National of being similar to the Islamic State.

    In response to the journalist equating the Front National with ISIS, Le Pen captioned the images with: “Daesh [ISIS] is THIS” in the wake of the Paris terror attack in November 2015.

    Her “crime” of retweeting three graphic images of ISIS executions in December 2015, including the beheading of American journalist James Foley, is punishable by up to three years in prison and a fine of €75 000.

    Foley’s parents had complained at the time, saying they were “deeply disturbed” that their son’s beheading was retweeted. The other images showed a man being burnt alive, as well as someone being driven over by a tank.

    Le Pen now faces charges of circulating “violent messages that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity”, images that may be viewed by minors.

    An MP close to Front National, Gilbert Collard, was also indicted for the same reason in January.

    The Syndicat of French Magistrates has been exposed as an openly leftist cabal, however. In 2013, a scandal ensued when a wall of shame was discovered in their offices named “le Mur des Cons”, literally: the Wall of Morons.

    It was a large board – covering a big wall, on which they had put up photos and names of all prominent French conservatives. Nearly every conservative politician and all the critics of Islam were featured on their wall.

    The wall even included two fathers whose daughters had been raped and murdered by Muslims and who had been devastated by the killers getting off lightly thanks to the so-called French Justice.

    Revealed at the end of April 2013 by the website Atlantico, which had obtained the images from a journalist at France 3, the existence of this wall located inside the premises of the magistrate’s union has called into question the neutrality of the office.

    The former president of the Union of Magistracy, Françoise Martres, will be tried from 4 to 7 December 2018 in Paris for “public insults” the Criminal Court stated last year.

      Well, Foley’s parents do have the chance here to say something like:
      If a retweet of the graphical evidence of the insane decline
      of human behavior and psychopathic war crimes will result in
      a clensing of such beings, then so be it.
      Our beloved son is dead and nothing can hurt him anymore.
      But showing what happened has the potential to rebuke the evil.

      If they don’t, they are just dumbf… americans interested in making money.
