French controversial humorist Dieudonne Mbala Mbala arrives for a trial at the Paris courthouse on December 13, 2013 on the charges of defamation, insults, incentive to hate and discrimination.

French comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala calls his inverted Nazi salute an “anti-establishment” gesture. Now establishment figures are gesturing back with city-wide bans on the performer.

BBC reports that the cities of Bourdeaux, Marseille, Nantes and Tours have cancelled the comic’s performances, which have included derisory comments about Holocaust survivors, Nazi gas chambers and Jews in general. President Francoise Hollande has urged other cities to follow suit.

Dieudonne has six convictions for hate speech against Jews. The comic maintains he’s not anti-Semitic — with a straight face.



some people mix up everything because they don't want the world to know that Jews who follew the Torah are against the criminal state of isreal. They don'"t want us to know that Teordor Herz never cared about where the Jew will have there state. I'm deeply sorry for you ricardo but zionism took part in the killing of poor Jews. You know why ? becaus zionists wanted the state of israel to be strong. Theodor Herzl wasn't religious. His was a political.  Take a look on this ricardo, you need to improve your knowledge. Stop the intox please.


it is not antisemitic! still less Muslim! freedom of expression is dead in France! this is serious, while FEMEN insult jesus and are applauded, we prevent a humorist to speak


He is a Muslim.  Islam was invented by an Arab obsessed with Jews 1,500 years after Judaism, 650 after Jesus.  All "prophets" in the Koran are Jews (today less than 0,2% of the world population), all Jewish prophets, patriarchs, kings and rabbis like Isiah, Moses, David and his descendant Jesus, for example.  Not Arabs like Mohammed himself, but all Jews!  Not from any other small people, not Inuits, Aztecs, Aboroginis, etc., but Jews....  After Mohammed`s death, when the Arabs from Arabia invaded Palestine (Jewish / Greek name) they built a mosque right on top of Judaism holiest site in the Jewish capital, Jerusalem.  Obsession!  Mr. Mbala Mbala is also obsessed with Jews.
