Merkel and Hollande get sprayed in the EU parliament by Le Pen

European lawmakers paved the way Tuesday for French far-right leader Marine Le Pen to lose her parliamentary immunity over her tweeting of images of Islamic State atrocities, officials said.

French prosecutors opened an investigation in December 2015 into the graphic series of tweets by National Front leader Le Pen, which included a photo of the decapitated body of US reporter James Foley.

The legal committee of the European Parliament on Tuesday backed a request by the prosecutors for Le Pen’s immunity as a member of the EU’s only elected assembly to be lifted, officials told AFP.

“This only shows French citizens what the EU is, what the European Parliament is and that it’s all part of the system that wants to stop the French people’s candidate that I am,” the anti-EU candidate said in response to the move.

The European Parliament as a whole must now vote on Thursday on the issue, but committee decisions are generally followed by the assembly.

Le Pen has so far refused to attend a police interview over the investigation by police in the Paris suburb of Nanterre, citing her status as an MEP.

But her head of cabinet has been placed under formal investigation for “the dissemination of violent images”.

The eventual lifting of her immunity would concern only the tweets and not the ongoing probe into allegations that Le Pen misused public funds by hiring a fake parliamentary aide.

The images were tweeted with the caption “This is Daesh” (an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group) and showed Foley’s bloodied body with his decapitated head on his torso, a man on fire in a cage, and a victim being driven over by a tank.


i am not a le pen supporter of course..but this was very nice..merkel getting some truth rammed down her throat..hollande is irrelevant already anyway..

  1. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  2. it’s a shame that the only candidate that’s opposed to the attack on syria is also a racist bitch. also a shame that her main opponent is a ‘former’ rothschild guy.

    • #VoteForNobody

      • Yes, “VoteforNobody”.

        On the church making ungodly alliances:

        Isaiah 30:1-3, ““Ah, stubborn children,” declares the Lord,
        “who carry out a plan, but not mine,
        and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit,
            that they may add sin to sin;
        2 who set out to go down to Egypt,
            without asking for my direction,
        to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh
            and to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt!
        3 Therefore shall the protection of Pharaoh turn to your shame,
            and the shelter in the shadow of Egypt to your humiliation.”

        On the kind of rulership should be over the people (should not lead the people back to Egypt, i.e. pagan ways:

        Deuteronomy 17: , “14 “[T]hen say, ‘I will set a king over me, like all the nations that are around me,’ 15 you may indeed set a king over you whom the Lord your God will choose. 16 Only he must not acquire many horses for himself or cause the people to return to Egypt in order to acquire many horses, since the Lord has said to you, ‘You shall never return that way again.’”

        The United States has never had a ruler who has followed the instructions of the LORD. This understanding is not mine alone for churches have declared this understanding and not allied with the U.S. since the signing of the U.S. Constitution, e.g. not voting. There used to more of them in the nineteenth century (almost a majority at one point), but it has considerably lessened since the latter half of the twentieth century. The rise of the evangelical movement in the twentieth century is NOT of this older understanding.

        The political evangelical movement actually drowned out the older understanding after the Civil War with the various progressive movements in the U.S., not that age makes it better. Yet, there are processes and orderly ways to maintain the church in line with what is understood from God’s Word now written, i.e. Bible. The evangelical movement gained dominance in Mainline churches in the early half of the twentieth century. The political evangelical movement and its underlying progressivism (social gospel) spread out into the culture, mainly by Billy Graham, after World War Two. The subsequent rise of the Religious Right in the 1970s.

        Again, the evangelical movement is not of the older Scriptural understanding when it comes to church and state issues. There is a lack of Biblical doctrine and Confessionalism in the evangelical movement, which only leads the movement into obscurity, lack of historical moorings, and misdirection. They are generally known for being moralistic, but lack a faith in Christ.
