French Interior Minister Manuel Valls announced on Friday that he would try to legally ban performances by French comic and actor Dieudonné, who has frequently been accused of anti-Semitism.

Dieudonné is best known for televised sketch comedy and a one-man show in Paris, in which he professes staunch anti-Israel views that many say amount to hate speech. He has also downplayed the significance of the Holocaust, calling commemorations “memorial pornography”.

“Despite a conviction for public defamation, hate speech and racial discrimination, Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala no longer seems to recognise any limits,” a statement released by Valls read. “Consequently, the interior minister has decided to thoroughly examine all legal options that would allow a ban on Dieudonné’s public gatherings, which no longer belong to the artistic domain, but rather amount to a public safety risk.”

‘Time to silence him’

Roger Cukierman, the president of CRIF, the main French Jewish lobby, applauded the decision in an interview with French television channel i>TELE.

“It’s a step in the right direction, because if we continue letting him do as he pleases, violence could result,” he said. “It’s time to silence him. He’s no longer a comic; he has become a peddler of hate.

The latest controversy surrounding Dieudonné began when footage captured by a hidden camera planted in his theatre was broadcast on French television channel France 2 in mid-December.

Performing onstage, Dieudonné said about prominent French Jewish radio journalist Patrick Cohen: “Me, you see, when I hear Patrick Cohen speak, I think to myself: ‘Gas chambers…too bad [they no longer exist].”

Radio France, Cohen’s employer, announced on December 20 that it had alerted authorities that Dieudonné had engaged in “openly anti-Semitic speech”, and various French anti-racism watchdog groups filed complaints.

Friends on the far right

Dieudonné is also behind a hand gesture known as the “quenelle” – described as a sort of downward-pointing Nazi salute – that has become popular among some young people in France.

The French-born son of a Cameroonian father and a white French mother, the 47-year-old Dieudonné has a diverse legion of followers, though his main fans tend to be young French people who espouse “anti-system” views.

But the comic has also found support on the far-right political fringe; he counts Jean-Marie Le Pen, former leader of the far-right National Front party, as a close friend and has regularly invited well-known Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson onstage during his shows.

On 13 December, the comedian Dieudonné filed a complaint for defamation against X. This complaint relates to remarks made by the president of the LICRA association [League against Racism and Antisemitism], Alain Jakubowicz, who associates the "quenelle" with the "reverse Nazi salute signifying the sodomisation of the victims of the Shoah".

Hand on the shoulder and arm extended, this "salute", popularised by Dieudonné M'bala M'bala has a meaning that is highly ambiguous. For its detractors, it resembles the Nazi salute. For the comedian's fans, it is an anti-system provocation.

As far as I can tell, the gesture seems to have become a kind rallying symbol for the invader population against European indigenes. The "system" that they're think they're rebelling against is the system of European civilisation, as constructed by Europeans. Whatever you think of this guy, though, it's grotesque that they're now trying shut down comedy performances and outlaw a hand gesture. Then again, I suppose they've been doing that for a while.

Nicolas Anelka could find himself in hot water after appearing to perform a controversial celebration during West Brom's 3-3 draw with West Ham.

After the French striker scored the Baggies' first goal he wheeled away with his right arm extended and his left hand on his right shoulder - mimicking a controversial gesture known as the quenelle.

Named after the word for an elongated creamed fish dumpling, the quenelle has stoked serious controversy in France since first being used by anti-establishment comedian Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala in 2005.

Basically, it's an antizionist gesture. (Exceptionnaly used against the Europeans.)
The gesture has gone viral, and is also popular among a part of the French patriots, for whom it would mean something like fuck the banksters, fuck the system, fuck the medias -and more or less : fuck the ZOG.

At the beginning of his career, he was an icon of the antiracist movement.
His case is complex, and it's all a story... In one sentence : the golem has escaped his creator.

The panic is pleasant and interresting to see.

Do Europeans perform this gesture too, or is it only Arabs/Africans?

@Dr Bazooka

The way you describe this, I understand those Europeans doing the gesture as useful idiots for the anti-Europeans/anti-Westerners

@ Cheradenine,
Indeed, more and more Europeans do it. The last week-end, the LDJ (Jewish Defense League) has launched reprisals.

@ Anonymous,
It’s not as simple. For the essential it’s something like : the enemies of my enemies are my friends.
Some are anti-Semitic and even Muslim-friendly, for sure (the “E&R” movement for the essential). But the guys who attack Dieudonné (journalists, politicians) are really first class bastards.

What is funny in this story, is that Dieudonné, initially, at least partially, was a creature of the Jewish anti-racist movement, which instrumentalized him to mock the French, “les beaufs” (it’s not the same sociology, but the closest American word would be “redneck”).

Dieudonné, with his full beard, shows his true face

In an interview the so called comedian calls for Christians to convert, to islam, urging the Christians astray(...) to fight sionism along with the muslims, and pointing to the Iranian revolution as an example to follow, going on about islam's "values" being that of Christ, who - Dieudonné topping it off here, with - announced the coming of Mohammed.

There are many people in France who are of the Christian tradition. These people should understand that Jesus was a prophet of islam." Dieudonné M-Bala M-Bala

«Il y a beaucoup de gens en France qui sont de tradition chrétienne. Ces gens-là doivent comprendre que Jésus était prophète de l’Islam." Dieudonné M-Bala M-Bala

Spoken like a true muslim.

By giving him a stage, he is free to work his dawa. Home Minister Manuel Valls is, however, making sure that this "comedian" will be stopped from continuing his "hate speech". Although, Valls may not have the dawa in mind as he is working to prevent Dieudonné's hate speech.

The truth established
by a "Palestinian"

At a UN conference, the Israeli delegate declared the following before his discours

"Before starting my discours, I would like to tell you a story about Moses..

When he knocked on the rock and the water started flowing, Moses thought to himself

"What a great occasion for taking a bath!"

He undressed, put his clothes with great care away on the rock and plunged into the water. When he got back up, his clothes had disappeared, stolen by a Palestinian"...

The Palestinian delegate, furious with rage, interrupted the discours of the Israeli representative, and shouted

"What are you telling me?! There were no Palestinians there at the time."

The Israeli smiled and then said

"Now that this has been clairly established, I will commence my speech!"
