PARIS, Sept 29, 2006 AFP – French anti-terrorism authorities Friday opened an inquiry into death threats against a philosophy teacher who has been forced into hiding over a newspaper column attacking Islam, legal officials said.
Robert Redeker, 52, is receiving round-the-clock police protection and changing addresses every two days, after publishing an article describing the Koran as a "book of extraordinary violence" and Islam as "a religion which … exalts violence and hate".
He told i-TV television he had received several e-mail threats targeting himself and his wife and three children, and that his photograph and address were available on several Islamist Internet sites.
"There is a very clear map of how to get to my home, with the words: ‘This pig must have his head cut off’," he said.
Speaking on RMC radio, Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin said such threats were "unacceptable".
"We are in a democracy, everyone has the right to express his views freely — of course while respecting others. That is the only restriction that is acceptable on this freedom.
"This shows to what extent we live in a dangerous world… and how vigilant we must be to ensure people fully respect one another in our society."
The Paris state prosecutor’s office Friday launched a preliminary inquiry for "criminal conspiracy in relation with a terrorist enterprise", asking the DST intelligence agency to look into the death threats.
But despite the government’s assurances of support, Redeker accused the authorities of leaving him "alone and abandoned".
Interviewed over the telephone from a safe house by Europe 1 radio Friday, he said that "the education ministry has not even contacted me, has not deigned to get in touch to see if I need any help."
On Thursday Education Minister Gilles de Robien expressed "solidarity" with the teacher, but also warned that "a state employee must show prudence and moderation in all circumstances."
Redeker said that "if Robien is correct, then we would never have had any intellectual life in France. The function of politics is not tell us what we are allowed to think, but to defend our freedom to think and speak out."
The issue, as it relates to Islam, is a sensitive one in France, which has Europe’s biggest Muslim community, estimated at six million or around 10 percent of the population.
Le Figaro, which published Redeker’s article on September 19, printed a front-page open letter from the editors Friday expressing solidarity with him and "condemning with the greatest severity the grave attacks on freedom of thought and expression that this affair has provoked."
Redeker wrote the piece in reaction to the fury unleashed in Muslim countries by Pope Benedict XVI’s references to Islam in an address in Germany two weeks ago.
Under the heading "In the face of Islamist intimidation, what must the free world do?", he denounced the "Islamisation of spirits" in France and claimed that "Islam is trying to make Europe yield to its vision of mankind."
Likening Islam to Communism, Redeker said that "violence and intimidation are the methods used by an expansionist ideology … to impose its leaden cloak on the world".
He also compared the Prophet Mohammed unfavourably to Jesus Christ, describing the founder of Christianity as a "master of love" and the founder of Islam as a "master of hate".
"Exaltation of violence, a merciless war-leader, a pillager, a massacrer of Jews and a polygamist — this is the picture of Mohammed that emerges from the Koran," he wrote.
Subsequently Redeker was denounced on Al-Jazeera television by the influential Qatari Muslim scholar Yusuf al-Qaradawi, and that day’s edition of Le Figaro was banned in Egypt and Tunisia.
Speaking on Europe 1, he said his detractors had "already won a victory of sorts."
"I cannot do my job. I have no freedom of movement. I am in hiding. Already they have succeeded in punishing me … as if I was guilty of holding the wrong opinions."

The Bush administration is concealing the level of violence against U.S. troops in Iraq and the situation there is growing worse despite White House and Pentagon claims of progress, journalist Bob Woodward said in advance of a new book.
Militant attacks against U.S.-led forces in Iraq occurred, on average, every 15 minutes, Woodward said in a CBS "60 Minutes" interview taped for broadcast on Sunday.
"It’s getting to the point now where there are eight, 900 attacks a week. That’s more than a hundred a day. That is four an hour attacking our forces," Woodward said in excerpts of the interview released on Thursday before the release of his book on the administration, called "State of Denial."

Besides her usual “I hate the U.S. military” rant and just like her pals Raed Jarrar, Medea Benjamin, Dahr Jamail, Sheehan once again accuses U.S. soldiers of systematically raping Iraqi women
Our dear young people, who made the horrible mistake of joining our military, are being further abused by their lily-livered civilian leadership and having their deployments extended when they never should have been in Iraq in the first place.
I have a story to share. When I was in Jordan with the peace contingent, meeting with Iraqi parliamentarians, we heard the testimony of a Sheik who is also a respected mullah in Iraq. He told us that members of the US Army broke into his house, raped his wife, beat him severely, and took him to prison, where he was further tortured in compliance with George’s barbaric and cruel policies. All of this happened in front of his teenaged son.

Translated (roughly) from Iraq Patrol which in the last paragraph accuses the U.S. of bringing in Iran to cause chaos because the Mujahideen is "kicking our ass".
After the battle to repel the attack by a gang of Sadr City on the Khan Bani Saad enable struggling families and one was carrying a communications and after the remnants of the Mujahideen collect mortar shells launched by the army and Katyusha rocket antichrist himself also did not explode What was the result?
To all those who want evidence of Iranian support for the Safwein in Iraq
Several days ago the members of the Army antichrist arrives (Mahdi forbid) from the so-called Sadr City, and areas around the attack on the village of Khan Bani Saad, located east of the capital of Diyala governorate of Baghdad. and immediately Astgath Villagers brethren mujahideen disprove this treacherous attack … Indeed, it is only half an hour or more just to bring Mujahideen from all over the world, While the members of the so-called Mahdi Army besiege people in the village to call them the types of rockets and mortars and heavy and high coordinating organizer … so, they found themselves besieged by the fighters, a fierce battle took place between Mujahideen and tearing the Mahdi Army and enable the Mujahideen killed many of them (approximately 20 apostate), while l m-find rest and escape defeat after the Sitarat Guard apostasy opening the way back to Kicking in Baghdad.
These battles have become accustomed to the Mujahideen Valgder Persian Safavid period witnessed history … But what is new is that the Mujahideen succeeded in taking one of the attackers.
* Mortars industry Iranian production in 2005 and 81-mm caliber and this specifically used by Iranian forces while mortar shells found in a former Iraqi army was one of the 82 mm shells (image shown below) Katyusha rocket also Iranian-made, modern production (image shown below).
They found a body contacts. And the remnants of the Mujahideen collect mortar shells launched by the army and Katyusha rocket antichrist himself also did not explode. What was the result :
* NTA is a complete communications system and new modern manufacturing units of the Ministry of Defense of Iran believes direct contact of the event to the system designed in Iran (image shown below)
To anyone who wants evidence of direct Iranian support for the Iraq Safwein This is the evidence, but we wonder and say what it wants to get out of Iran this support :
– Is it because of the Persian ambitions in Iraq, and that due to the era of Omar Abu Ali, while opening Iraq!
– Or is the advocacy and support of the crusader forces in Iraq after the lost saving face in its war against the Mujahideen!
– Or is at least suppress fighters and the strengthening of Shahs in Diyala specifically on the grounds that the Diyala big city borders with Iran!
And many other questions, and let her reply that every Muslim bag clever.
And you soon, God Almighty taped confessions of this apostate

Filmmaker Oliver Stone blasted President Bush Thursday, saying he has "set America back 10 years." Stone added that he is "ashamed for my country" over the war in Iraq and the U.S. policies in response to the attacks of Sept. 11.
More brilliant revelations from Stone:
"We have destroyed the world in the name of security," Stone told journalists at the San Sebastian International Film Festival prior to a screening of his latest movie, "World Trade Center."
"Terrorism is a manageable action. It can be lived with," said Stone.

What the fuck Buckwheat?
A headline from CNN.com International:
A gunman who killed a 16-year-old student hostage and then himself during a high school standoff "traumatized and assaulted" his hostages and the attack "was of a sexual nature," police say.
A witness to the standoff at the school in Bailey, in the American state of Colorada, said the gunman, pictured above, wanted to take only girls hostage.
The American state of Colorada? WTF? Great job CNN, we can always count on you for accuracy cuz it’s those little details that don’t count.
