French Muslim leader asks gov’t to ‘criminalize insulting religion’

Abdelkebir Kotbi

Insulting sacred symbols of all religions should be a crime in France, the director of the Union of Islamic Organizations of France told The Anadolu Agency in an exclusive interview Saturday.

Abdelkebir Kotbi’s comments came after 17 people were killed in two Paris attacks in recent days…

…Kotbi criticized the magazine’s latest issue and said that Muslims should use all legitimate and democratic means to respond to provocations against them, but must avoid violence.

“Islam is a religion of tolerance and carries a message of peace,” he said.

Kotbi also said that after the terrorist attacks in Paris, French Muslims have suffered a violent backlash.

“The French government decisively needs to fight against Islamophobia, which is on a dramatic rise,” Kotbi added. “Insulting any prophet is very likely to stimulate some kind of legal response. It should not be allowed under French law.”

    “French Muslim leader asks gov’t to ‘criminalize insulting religion’ ”

    They can start by outlawing the Koran which insults all
    religions (infidels) but theirs.

    According to the Koran all other religions are inferior to Islam.
    I consider that an insult to my religion.

    What do we call “moderates” who lose all self control and tact in their quest to silence criticism of their demand for supremacy?

    Why does this guy have a mouth on his forehead? Try spinning the picture above 180 degrees. It’s freaky.

      Ugly as sin, like all Islamoloons.

    Abdelkebir Kotbi should be summarily executed for treason, then deported in a pine box along with his family and friends.

    What f-ing prophet?

    The “bad” Muslims slaughter people for insulting their pedophile prophet.

    The “good” Muslims respond…by demanding that we criminalize insulting their pedophile prophet.

    How low does your IQ have to be if you don’t realize that the “bad” Muslims and the “good” Muslims are on the same side and want the same thing?

      It’s the bad cop bad cop routine.

    Yes, we see every day around the world that Islam is a religion of tolerance and carries a message of peace, especially in the 25,000 attacks carried out since 9/11/01.

    Abdelkebir Kotbi can take a flying f##k at his sister. Hell he’s probably already married to her.

  • tom_billesley

    Yep, islam is an insulting religion but I’d not bother to criminalize it.
    It’s already criminal.
