Muslim Rapper With ‘Jihad’ And ‘September 11th’ Albums To Perform At Bataclan

A Muslim rapper with albums titled “Jihad” and “September 11th” is scheduled to perform at France’s Bataclan concert hall, where radical Muslim terrorists gunned down 90 people in 2015.

The rapper, who goes by the stage name Medine, stirred outrage among the French political right after booking his October performance date at the theater, The Express Tribune reported.

Medine has a long history of provocation, releasing a song about “crucifying secularists” just days prior to the 2015 Charlie Hebdo killings. He’s also adopted the inverted “Nazi-like” salute pioneered by Dieudonné, a comedian who encouraged holocaust denial and claimed France is ruled by Jewish “slave drivers,” according to The Guardian.
