On September 18, 2019, the Court of Appeal sentence against journalist and political commentator Eric Zemmour was confirmed by the High Court ruling, for “incitement to discrimination, hatred or violence” confirming that the law had been correctly applied in this case.
Eric Zemmour, one of the last political journalists whose voice has not been silenced, was found guilty for saying:
We have been living for thirty years in an invasion, a colonization, which has led to a conflagration. In countless French suburbs where many young girls are veiled, it is also Islam, it is also jihad, it is also the struggle to Islamize a territory that is not, which is normally a non-Islamic land, a land of non-believers. It’s the same thing, it’s occupation of a territory. I think we have to give them the choice between Islam and France”.
The high court judges decided to convict Zemmour who merely reported widely accepted facts, under the belief that the truth is likely to generate hatred.
The alleged facts were not disputed by either court, but making them public was. The high court considered that this could harm the targeted populations.
Such a process could never have flourished in a real democracy.
