Grim news from France, where the anti-zionist slate, including 9/11 truther Thierry Meyssan, have the French government in a right muddle, following their candidacy in the European elections.
9/11 Truthwatch's French correspondent points out that concern has centred not around Meyssan, but Dieudonne, a controversial figure in the country. She comments:
I've just read again the article in L'Express and other websites including L'Humanite, Communist paper as you know. Mainstream left wing parties have been claiming that The Elysee is not all clear in its real aim for wanting to ban Dieudonne and the French government has been accused of all sorts, from the whole spectrum of wanting to make anti-semitic views more popular down to making people feel that anti-zionist views are being victimised.
The communist stand is so predictable in that apart from its affiliation to its official anti-racist group it can often in my view be very mild in its anti-racism. It is also understandable why the other parties are very dubious about the real motive of the government. Lunatic governement, the very one which recently chose holding meetings on immigration in the city of Vichy- for fuck sake - claiming allegedly that they chose the city precisely to show that history was moving on. To every one who can see truly through their politics this appeared quite... well I don't know, words quite frankly fail me here.
Banning - or attempting to ban this slate - is no substitute for taking these guys on in debate. 'Truth' theories need to be taken on and defeated, whether they cloak themselves in 'anti-zionist' garb or not.
