The Ezra Levant Show: Best of... Muslims in Paris

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

During my trip to Paris to report on the November 13 terror attack, I was determined to talk to local Muslims to get their views on Islam and terrorism.

As you'll see, some of their comments were somewhat reassuring. Others were downright troubling.

Notice that all of them look very modern. They don't have long beards or traditional clothing, and none of them are official spokesmen for French Muslim organizations.

And yes: I didn't speak to any women. The only ones I saw seemed to be busy shopping. Taking it easy, like these fellows were, seemed to be an activity reserved for men only.

Ezra, I got so sick & tired of listening to these men who are either uninformed, in denial or just plain liars. Why did you not ask them about 9/11 were these victims all Muslim as they claimed the attacks are all on the Muslim people. You have more patience than me in these interviews & by the way Ezra, your French was quite good despite what you said. You did not challenge them when they said it was not Muslims who carried out the attack, well is ISIS not Muslim. I would have asked. They made no sense at all, by blaming Jews & Americans, why would Americans be fighting Americans. Have they not seen any of the videos? Is everyone of that mentality in Paris.
Could you not find even one person who was angry & blamed ISIS for who they are?

Ezra, what you saw is the perpetuation of 1400yrs of Jew Hatred promulgated by Muhammad and his followers, with century after century of massacres, pogroms and dhimmitude. Of 1.6billion Muslims worldwide, 800million are illiterate and rely exclusively on clerics for their knowledge of their faith. You can see clearly that these people have no idea that the Qur’an has hundreds of verses dedicated to violent & global Jihad and Islamic supremacy. They are taught that Muhammad was the “perfect man” (despite the fact that he was one of the worst psychopathic serial killers to ever live) and that Muslims are “the best of peoples.” Furthermore, they are also taught that Christians & Jews are “the worst of creatures.” At they can see at any time, videos of Muslim clerics sermonising that Jews are the spawn of “apes and pigs.” It is no wonder that Muslims have such deep suspicion, derision and raw hatred for Jews, as the centre of Islamic Sunni jurisprudence, Al Azhar University in Cairo (est. 962AD), teaches that the Jews are not even human and must be annihilated. Several Al Azhar educated Muslims are in senior ISIS positions, including the ISIS religious centre in Raqqa, where a centre of Islamic Jurisprudence was established early on in ISIS’ history. If you read the ISIS English language magazine “Dabiq”, you will find therein, detailed religious justifications for everything from the taking of sex slaves to the burning alive of the Jordanian pilot. Dissenting students at Al Azhar Uni have stated that they see ISIS as the “post-graduate program of Al Azhar University!” President al Sisi of Egypt is 100% correct when he says that Islamic religious leaders must oversee a “Revolution within Islam”, as it is only the most senior clerics who can command Muslim attention to issues of faith. Al Azhar University publishes the handbook for Sunni Islam, “Reliance of the Traveller” and uses the Bukhari commentaries (over a dozen volumes and thousands of pages) as the foundations of post-Quranic Islam & Shariah in particular. In order to conduct a dialogue with Muslims, a non-Muslim like you or me must carry with them at least a copy of the Qur’an and Reliance of the Traveller, the first to be able to point directly to its verses as proof of concepts and the latter when one is dismissed with the familiar refrain that you have taken the Qur’an “out of context”. Reliance of the Traveler is the context setter of Sunni Islam and Muslims arguing a point with you will cease doing so if you can demonstrate expertise gained from this book. Given that deception and dissimulation are mandated when Islam is criticised or threatened in any way, only referring to source texts will shed light on reality. Very few Muslims know their religion is actually a supremacist, totalitarian, repressive political ideology in disguise. Muslim leaders, academics and clerics know this all too well and are ruthlessly exploiting the ignorance of their followers to sate their lust for power, wealth and control (as demonstrated expertly by Muhammad). Finally, thank you Ezra for excellent work in Paris! After several years researching Islam (as a Jewish psychiatrist with expertise in cults, sects and dictatorship), I can heartily recommend to you that you research the source texts of Islam so that you can silence critics who claim that you are wrong or maliciously “Islamophobic”.

Outstanding work Ezra. You would never see a report like this on the CBC. They’re too busy trying to show how all Muslims are complete angels, and would never harm anyone.
I can see why these young men are trying to distance themselves from the terrorists, but they are in a massive state of denial if they refuse to call the terrorists Muslims. Until practising Muslims strongly condemn ISIS and AL Qaeda, they are all complete hypocrites.

At first , listening to the three young men it seemed perhaps they were " playing to the camera " and enjoying their two minutes of fame. Then watching and listening to them you actually realize they do believe in what they are saying.
Young men , very likely unemployed and enjoying a lifestyle courtesy of the French Taxpayer. Their life in France may not be great but without doubt a better option than from their homeland. Grateful that they can now enjoy democracy and opportunity? No , angry , bitter and entitled from their adopted country.
This does note bode well for Europe or for any Western Nation.

I have come across neo-nazis calling isis a mossad ( Israeli Intelligence ) funded operation …. as a first responder I check BEST every other day for years now, not because i’m sick or demented but to see an unedited, politically incorrect, view into other cultures handling of life and death . I have always been aware this site is a hotbed for neo-nazis and other messed up people… but lately under new people running the site it has changed, they have been posting lots of ISIS video executions. and the guys running the site seem quite certain isis are mossad operatives. i find it quite silly…but there it is.

The Qur’an and islam itself should be banned, because everything muslims pretend to believe is “holy” is already a crime!

The Qur’an is more than just another flawed book of confusing, contradictory superstitious nonsense, it’s evil.

Islam can be easily studied and known in its entirety, by anyone. It will never change!

So, when Western people won’t educate them selves about islam because our culture defers all thinking to those “authorities” we PAY to do our thinking and research for us, while they secretly know full-well that the salesmen in charge will always sell us all out, they ARE CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT INFANTILE DELINQUENT TRAITORS TO RATIONALITY AND CIVILIZATION!

It should never be allowed by backwards people to be considered “illegal” to accuse these criminals (muslims) of their crimes, allegedly because the painful truth might offend them or hurt their feelings, and so “make” them commit even more crimes!

No problem was ever solved by ignoring it, and nobody is doing even these muslims any favours, by indulging their historic lies that islam is a “religion” (at all, much less one “of peace”) or a “race” (much less one of poor oppressed "People Of Colour”)!

Pretending there is NOT a Muslim problem but only a white racist problem accepting diversity, is criminally negligent TREASON.

Keeping the muzzie masses ignorant of their own hate-crime death-threat canon seems to be the self-imposed mission of most of the enemedia, government and of course their corporazi owners these days – it’s most likely why they keep lying about islam being a “great religion of peace” all the time! That, and their inherent racism, of course!

We wouldn’t want any of these poor oppressed mentally-inferior swarthy holy-mobster criminals to suffer any “blowback” retaliation (i.e: JUSTICE) for their crimes, now, would we?


Here’s islam’s “holy Message from god” as exemplified by the collective words and deeds of it’s Founder:

“I will save humanity by lying to, extorting, torturing, robbing, burning out of their homes, kidnapping and ransoming, enslaving, raping and murdering everyone who even only verbally disagrees with me – and you can, too!”

- Muhammad -

Muhammad was really only a con-man and bandit-king, an arch-criminal who always blamed “god” for his own penchant for committing crimes. If Moe got away with committing a crime (and he tried them all, enthusiastically, more than once, but instead of ever showing contrition, bragged about how much fun it was to commit them, and advised everyone else to join in the fun, too), then it was held to be “obvious” that “god” wanted him to get away with having committed those crimes!

Islam is a threat to everyone because IT says it is.

Re: All those “Islam has nothing to do with terrorism!” claims?!

How about “Jihad is ordained for you”, “Fight them until”, “I am commanded to fight until”, “I will cast terror”, “to strike terror”, “to terrify thereby” and “made victorious with terror”???

Ezra, They are goofy by saying that ISIS are made up of Jews. However they are correct by calling ISIS a “US organization”. I’m not joking, Al Qaida( ISIS) is a Western -created organization funded by Saudi Arabia and armed and also funded by US -owned CIA. There is no arguing this. In the alternate media this is a well known fact. 911, no question, was orchestrated by the CIA and Saudi Arabia and the Bush administration knew it was coming and allowed it to occur. Those Frenchmen are not completely all wet behind the ears with what is really happening in the world. Its the Canadian and US Main Stream Media sheeple that need to wake up. I’m glad you were able to get those interviews on record respecting who ISIS really belongs to. But no, they are not “Jews”.

As I read and listen to the various opinions and outrages attributed to ISIS atrocities I wonder:
-why do so many seem to trivialize the threat of ISIS barbarianisms on Canadian soil,
-why haven’t ALL Canadian Muslims denounced the Islamic doctrine of armed jihad,
-why haven’t these same Canadians condemned Sharia in public law,
-why do Canadian imams and other Muslim academics continue to indoctrinate impressionable minds with the notion of Muslim victory over ALL non-Muslims, and
-why am I ‘labelled’ an Islamophobic for questioning the Islamist political agenda?
There just seems to be something fundamentally wrong with the notion we Canadians are somehow insulated from the complexities facing other parts of the world, and by our very nature we seem to be slowly allowing this wonderful country to become a comfortable conduit for wannabe terrorists.
Here’s trusting our Government is committed to picking the right course. Just saying …………

I loved this episode. It is so rare that we get to hear the voices from the streets and this has been incredibly refreshing. I often go to twitter to get, ‘real time’ and ‘street level’ perspectives in the event of an incident but, without visuals, it seems impersonal. Ezra has brought this to an easier light in showing us that there are actual humans, rather than just “characters”, behind the ideas. Thank you for this – keep it up !!!!!

Our war is not with ISIS, ISIL, IS, Terrorists, call them what you will. Our war is with the political platform of Islam and it’s Muslim followers.

When the time is right, the Imams will tell Muslims, go out and kill the Kaffir and this is what they will do. We have to understand, Muslims you see every day, on the street, at the groceries store, these are the ones that will be slitting our throats.

Jihad is the goal of all Muslims, the Quran orders this. Do not be taken in by the Rock Stars of Islam, the ones that make Hollywood quality movie’s of horrific killings, they are just there to make you think that it is only them who are bad, other Muslims are peaceful. Do not be fooled by this deception. It is the duty of ALL Muslims, to kill Christians and Jews. They just wait until there is enough of them, then they will start the killings.

All of this will be, compliments of PM Justin Trudeau. Welcome to Canadistan.

Allah Akbar.

Asking questions like this of these poeple. although interesting ermm humorous rather, to watch is akin to asking a bunch of retards to solve Pi. Obviously none of these men are educated, none of them have jobs, they are poeple whom have simply ended up in France to leech from the social system. The whole lot of them turn a blind eye to what the militant Islamists are doing and claim that muslims are not responsible therefor it is not there responsibility to stand up against them. It is easier to blame the US and the Jews than to see how sick their so-called religion is and to admit the vile acts committed by the Islamists are 100% done in the name of Allah and the continuing effort to wipe out or, subgjugate into slavery, all other religions from the planet.
Here’s the question that should have been asked. If Isis or Daesh or whatever succeeeds in wiping all other religions from the planet, or at least in subjugatiing all non muslims would they support, look forward to, or approve of, living under an Islamic regime that controls the world through violence and subjugation.
I’d be willing to bet that most if not all of these ment that were questioned would support that idea 100% even seeing it as a utopian existance.
Beyond that, these men that were questioned did not appear to be the most pious or religious of muslims. had all of these questions been asked in the more backward ie muslim, neighborhods in Paris nwhere you can’t find a single person that even looks or dresses like a French European, the answers would have been decidely different. Of course you couldn’t go to those neighborhoods and ask questions as you would have been dead in minutes. Funny about that eh!

I am not sure what these people are talking about. I am very far from this place and yet I do have understanding what happened in their country and yet they themeselves are there are just too dumbed that they do not know what’s happening.
