Ayatollah: Why Does France Allow Muhammed Cartoons But Ban Holocaust Research?

The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei, has come out and condemned French President Emmanuel Macron for his support for Muhammed cartoons.

The leader took it a step further, and started asking why it is that it is illegal to deny the Holocaust, but not illegal to make fun of Moslems.

We have to say: he raises a fair point.

What exactly is the difference between denying the Holocaust and drawing Muhammed? Well, the obvious difference is that the Holocaust has a big effect on the structure of Western culture, whereas the ability to draw Muhammed cartoons does not.

The Holocaust, we are told, is the reason that white people cannot organize together in the way that every other race does. White people alone are banned from organizing, because Jews have claimed that if they are allowed to organize, they will immediately start devising plans to exterminate the Jews. If the Holocaust didn’t happen – and there is no evidence that it did – then there is no reason that white people shouldn’t be allowed to organize in defense of their collective interests.

This cartoon is illegal in France

Furthermore, the question of whether or not the Holocaust happened is one of history. There is a big difference between saying, “you’re not allowed to research an entire area of history” and saying “you’re not allowed to make this very specific joke.”

Frankly, although it is impossible to know the motivations of the French state, it appears that their obsession with allowing people to draw Muhammed cartoons, and in fact encouraging it, is designed to draw attention away from the fact that the French are not allowed to question the Jews.

It seems that the French state is saying: “look at all of this freedom you have – you are allowed to draw pictures of Muhammed, and even though the Moslems will kill us if you do this, we allow you to do it anyway, because we have such strong freedoms.”

This provides the illusion of freedom, even whilst people are being sent to prison for daring to question whether or not exactly six million Jews were gassed to death by Adolf Hitler.

I do not support banning drawing images of Muhammed. However, I also do not understand why, even if it is not banned, people would decide to draw these pictures. I cannot understand how it is political. It seems to me that it is simply rude.

I would go so far as to say that burning a Koran is more of a political act than drawing these cartoons. If you burn a Koran, like burning a flag, you are saying: “we denounce you and everything about you, we are totally against you.”

Drawing a cartoon of Muhammed, on the other hand, is so specific that it is difficult to understand what is being communicated, beyond a desire to be offensive.

The solution is for everything to be allowed, including Holocaust research. Muhammed cartoons can be allowed, but there is no reason for the government to endorse them. The government should be able to say: “we allow these cartoons, because it’s a part of freedom of speech that we must allow them, however, we feel that it is very rude to assert this freedom.”

Of course, that makes no sense when you are banning Holocaust denial. When you are banning Holocaust denial and allowing Muhammed cartoons, all you are necessarily saying is: “we like Jews more than Moslems, and we will protect the feelings of Jews but not of Moslems.”

Here’s a movie that is illegal in France:

Ask yourself: is that movie more important than a cartoon?

C’mon man!
