Antisemitic French comedian says backed by Iran

by Merav Yudilovitch, YNET

An openly anti-Semitic French comedian admitted Saturday that he received funds from Iran in order to wage a war of culture against Zionism.

Dieudonné M'bala M'bala told reporters of the meeting held a week ago between himself and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

"We received a substantial budget allowing us to make movies on par with Hollywood, which serves as the long arm of Zionist culture," he said at a press conference in Paris.

Dieudonné admitted that he intended to produce two films on the subject of slavery and the war in Algiers in order to "show a different point of view on blacks than the one shown by Spielberg".

The 43-year old comedian from Cameroon, who has founded an anti-Zionist political party, has been indicted by French courts for his anti-Semitic outbursts on numerous occasions.

On one occasion, he referred to Holocaust remembrance as "pornographic". On another, he was fined 5,000 euros for comparing Jews to slave traders.

AFP reports that the press conference held Saturday was a stiff affair, and that journalists present there had to undergo invasive security checks.

Dieudonné told reporters that "Ahmadinejad is better loved in Iran than Sarkozy in France". He commended the Iranian leader for "surviving a media lynch".

Dieudonné also called reformist sentiment against the hardline leader and the violent protests that followed his reelection "Zionist propaganda".
