Eric Zemmour, is an Algerian-born French Jew, a best-selling author, journalist, lecturer and the most famous conservative intellectual in France. Zemmour has faced endless persecution by the French government for his views on Islam, Muslim immigration, and the preservation of Western civilization. Despite convictions and fines for exposing the politically incorrect truths about Islam, Zemmour continues to warn his fellow citizens about the ongoing ‘Muslim invasion.’
The Paris Paris prosecutor’s office announced the investigation earlier this week over claims of “public provocation to discrimination, hatred, or violence” after he referred to Muslim immigrants as “colonizers” and spoke about the “Islamization of the streets”, BFMTV reports.
“In France, as in all Europe, all our problems are aggravated by Muslim immigration — schools, housing, unemployment, social deficits, public order, prisons — but all our problems are also aggravated by Islam. It’s double punishment,” he told conference attendees.

LCI Television live broadcast Zemmour’s speech and journalists nationwide immediately accused LCI of contributing to “hate propaganda”. Some pundits even went so far as to call for regulators to strip LCI of its broadcasting license.
Zemmour is employed by France’s Le Figaro newspaper. A group of left wing journalists also employed by Le Figaro issued a press release demanding the immediate termination of Zemmour following his speech. Le Figaro’s Managing Editor stopped short of terminating Zemmour and expressed “disapproval” and a call for “strict compliance with the law.”
RAIR Foundation USA recently featured the newspaper’s Deputy Editor Yves Theard, as he himself has come under attack for voicing his opinion on Islamic veils in France.
Debating on French television on a wide range of issues, including recent developments in Central European countries, controversial polemicist and journalist Eric Zemmour sang Poland and Hungary’s praises, arguing that their hardline immigration policies should serve as “models” and that other countries have a lot of lessons to learn from them.
After Zemmour’s speech, the Paris prosecutor’s office opened another investigation into him, this time for “public insults” and “public provocation to discrimination, hatred or violence.” Those accused in France of “public provocation to discrimination, hatred or violence” can face a sentence of one year in prison and a fine of 45,000 euros.
As reported by Gatestone,
Zemmour had been hauled into court many times in the recent past and has had to pay heavy fines. On September 19, he was fined 3,000 euros ($3,300) for “incitement to racial hatred” and “incitement to discrimination”, for having said in 2015 that “in countless French suburbs where many young girls are veiled, a struggle to Islamize territories is taking place”.
