Till when will Ter­ror­ists be Free in Ter­ror­iz­ing Free­dom of Press in France?

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Gazi Has­san

Last week, a catas­tro­phe oc­curred in Paris. Jour­nal­ists of a well-known and free French mag­a­zine, which is con­sid­ered one of the glob­ally lib­eral mag­a­zines, were mass-mur­dered in a se­ri­ous ter­ror­ist act.

No other in­sti­tu­tions such as ‘Charlie Hebdo’ could ex­ist in France or even in the world, be­cause the mag­a­zine is satir­i­cal to an ex­tent that could shake pow­ers and pro­voke the pub­lic. It’s some­times so provoca­tive that the rad­i­cals and fun­da­men­tal­ists, as they can­not ac­cept dif­fer­ent opin­ions, could choose the geno­cide of free press and even the jour­nal­ists, as the case with ‘Charlie Hebdo’.

The mag­a­zine has its own sys­tem in pub­lish­ing and fi­nan­cial support and the meet­ing of staff writ­ers. It re­lays on the fi­nan­cial aid pro­vided from peo­ple. The day the in­ci­dent hap­pened and 10 of best jour­nal­ists and mem­bers of Charlie were killed, was the same day of monthly the meet­ing with the pub­lic. They have a meet­ing with peo­ple ev­ery month; ev­ery­one can take part in the meet­ing. What hap­pened shocked the conscience of ev­ery free­dom seek­ers and de­fend­ers of dif­fer­ent opin­ions and free­dom of press. All the over the world, the pres­i­dents of states and gov­ern­ment, the pub­lish­ing cen­ters, me­dia, in­tel­lec­tu­als and artists con­demned the act and de­scribed it as ‘bar­baric’.

Some think that it was an in­di­vid­ual act, and oth­ers be­lieve that ter­ror­ist groups are in­volved. There’re also oth­ers that think the at­tack cor­re­lates with France’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the in­ter­na­tional coali­tion against ISIS. What­ever it is, the Is­lamists have car­ried out the at­tacks. This is another fac­tor that grows the right­ists in France and Europe stronger, and will put the Is­lamic and Ara­bic di­as­pora un­der more pres­sure. The Is­lamists them­selves are re­spon­si­ble for choos­ing the man­ner and the con­se­quences, and Mus­lim peo­ple are the one who will pay for th­ese ter­ror­ist acts. Though the Is­lamic di­as­pora wants to prove their in­no­cence, but they can’t pre­vent prop­a­ga­tion of vi­o­lence and widen­ing the cen­ter of Is­lamists’ way to ter­ror. This is an im­por­tant part of the Is­lamic di­as­pora, es­pe­cially as those cen­ters that are work­ing pub­licly should not show them the neg­a­tive re­ac­tion in­stead of train­ing Mus­lim youth.

Another in­ci­dent of killing po­lice oc­curred in France. 88 thou­sands of po­lice and se­cu­rity force were de­ployed and were put in high alert. This is go­ing to be a new be­gin­ning for press in France, it’s also not far to be a new be­gin­ning po­lit­i­cally for re­con­sid­er­ing the so­cial struc­ture of France and Europe as well. It’s true that Charlie was com­mit­ted geno­cide against, but France it­self was tar­get of the ter­ror­ists. The rad­i­cal and ter­ror­ist Is­lamist groups want to move the war in the East and ter­ror­ists’ de­feat into some coun­tries tak­ing part in the coali­tion against ISIS. This is con­sid­ered a new phase of war on ter­ror­ism. It’s not pos­si­ble that the ter­ror­ists are let move freely across the Europe and bom­barded and de­stroyed in the Mid­dle East. So the ori­gins of ter­ror and their sup­port­ers, the ide­o­log­i­cal, fi­nan­cial and hu­man­i­tar­ian prin­ci­ples of the rad­i­cal Is­lamist’s cen­ters should be elim­i­nated. Ter­ror­ists should never be free in Europe any­more to com­mit geno­cide against free­dom of press and spread their con­stant fear and ter­ror and threats against me­dia and in­di­vid­ual free­doms and civil so­ci­ety within the heart of France and other coun­tries.
