16-year-old Mila reawakens France's blasphemy demons

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
A teenager from Grenoble is at the centre of a debate on freedom of expression and the right to blaspheme, this after she became a target of death threats for criticising Islam online. The divisive discussion that has followed is a reminder of the aftermath of the 'Charlie Hebdo' shooting. The satirical magazine's mockery of religion led its journalists to be targeted by vengeful jihadists. #JeSuisMila (I am Mila) is the online campaign of support for free speech in all its forms, even where it offends, in an echo of the #JeSuisCharlie hashtag that emerged after the 2015 terror attack.

She is being threatened with violence by a group who would kill her because of her sexual preference. Of course she is right and the islamists are brutes.

You go girl ✊💅 salutations from a atheist from a Muslim background.

Free speech is where we get our morality and ethics, definitly not from any church or ancient text.

Religion can take a number and and stand in the dogma and ideology line for invalidation, refutation, criticism and to be challenged and contested on the altar of scintific method and rationality to reach higher levels of knowledge and understanding.

3:14 "Had somehow brought this upon herself"

The rapists defence. 'She was wearing a short skirt m'lord, she was asking for it'.

Islam is _not_ a race, it is a set of beliefs and ideas, and a set of very bad ideas on how to structure and run a society, just look at the numerous islamic republics around the world. Any other system, be it communism, socialism, liberalism, fascism, is open for criticism and mockery.

Islam is given a special place in the world because they use the assassin's veto. Any mockery or criticism leads to violence.

She said what we in Eastern Europe think as well and she expressed her point of view without political correctness, opposite of France, we in Eastern Europe do not accept any illegal immigration so we are still fine, but we also say what we think and have still freedom, what the western European countries already lost.
