Farid Smahi is an apostate from Islam who confronted the mayor of Paris on the street yesterday in the wake of Thursday’s deadly Islamic terrorist attack on the Champs-Élysées. Below are two videos of the incident recorded by different cameras.
Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.
Vlad includes this exegesis on the first video:
Ex-Muslim in Paris gives the Mayor a piece of his mind
This is quite a clip and has a couple of cultural references that need adding. First, the man on a rant, Farid Smahi, who was hauled away from Anne Hidalgo yesterday as she left the Marks & Spencer store where terrorist Karim Cheurfi was gunned down by police, referenced the most famous case of malpractice of French jurisprudence.
From the translator, Ava-Lon:
Farid is using the expression J’accuse which entered in the French language about 120 years ago during the cause of Dreyfus.
Dreyfus was a Jewish officer in the French army who was tried for treason (in favor of Germans, who France was fighting at that moment) in 1894 in an atmosphere of prejudice and where evidence against him was fabricated.
“J’accuse” was an open letter of French writer Emile Zola, published in January 1898,concerning the case of Dreyfus, where Zola was accusing French government of antisemitism, bias, and unlawful jailing of Alfred Dreyfus. For that letter Zola was himself prosecuted for libel and found guilty in February 1898. He had to exile himself to England to avoid imprisonment. He returned to France the following year and continued his defense of Dreyfus, who was retired the same year, found guilty again, but was pardoned (all seems to point to the government trying to save face).
Only in 1906, on appeal, Dreyfus obtain annulment of his guilty verdict and even awarded the Legion d’honneur the highest French media (with mention “for a soldier who has endured an unparalleled martyrdom”).
The expression “J’accuse” since became the call of everyone who is fighting greater power. Even if Farid wasn’t aware of the exact case he sure used the expression well.
Also the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, is a well known leftist and muslim sympathizer.
In fact she is creating legal and financial problems for an excellent French counter-jihad site because they did a mocking caricature of her.
Oz-Rita adds the following about Hidalgo, the Mayor of Paris:
She came to politics via Francois Hollande. At the time the now (still) French President was still living with the mother of his 4 children, Segolene Royal, and it was reported that the latter was very unhappy about their “relationship” and did not like Hidalgo.”
When some Saudi was “offended” by some French writer and sued him, she took the side of the Saudi etc. she is a nasty piece of ‘work’

|00:44||the Muslims of France! I used to be a Muslim!|
|00:48||I am not any more! I am ashamed!|
|00:52||We need to try all the Ministers of the Interior from the right and from the left!|
|00:56||It’s a disgrace! “J’accuse!” [I accuse] as a French writer said! [Emile Zola re Dreyfus]|
|01:01||Voilà, they were just parading on the blood of a police officer,|
|01:05||who lost his life and who left behind a wife and a child!|

|01:13||for all those Muslims — and the one who is talking to you is Muslim himself — who veil their wives|
|01:17||and who are slaying our women! Where is Madame Simone Veil [French politician]?|
|01:21||Madame [unintelligible] to forbid that s****y veil!|
|01:25||Those governments, those presidents who will shake hands with the Saudis, all while women|

|00:32||paying your respects… — Madame Hidalgo, just a word, please!|
|00:36||Please! —Criminals! Criminals!|

|00:56||I cried because of them last night! And the Bataclan!|
|01:00||And it’s not over! We know that they have S-files [Muslims who have terrorist dossiers].|
|01:04||Let’s abolish dual nationality, for God’s sake! I am calling on the government. I don’t know|

|01:13||Algerian-French, Moroccan-French, and those media: “a French-Algerian!”|
|01:17||“a French-whatever”! We ARE French or we are NOT!|
|01:24||We are exclusive of all the others. And this is the tragedy: we became a nation,|
