3:04 pm
speech with the french foreign minister saying that they will be consequences with guarding this publication and he has condemned these caricature as being published in the first place but we are hearing from the french prime minister that the freedom of speech is something that is protected although it's something that needs to be used responsibly but nonetheless muslims there in this country have been organizing themselves for protest so far their protest has been banned but it is likely to go ahead we know also that they believe this is a cult move and that it has nothing to do with freedom of speech french police a position themselves outside the headquarters of this magazine it's a magazine that was firebombed last year when it published an edition that mocked radical islam at the same time at least twenty french embassies are on lockdown around the world for fear that there will be reprisals and revenge attacks. for more on the controversial publication in france and the resonance in the muslim
3:05 pm
world let's join paula for political analyst and founder of the brussels based think tank the foundation thank you so much for joining r.t. today now certainly this publication at such a controversial time will are in the french paper a lot of publicity but is this really the kind of publicity it waltz. well. i don't think he's a search for publicity i mean on one side of that is of course the freedom of expression and freedom of speech which is a bottom of the story but on the other hand when these type of publications sometimes are published the message. that they're for other reasons possible that intrigue other kind of political calculations all the middle eastern . negotiation is to place the publication now just recently a french court banned explicit photos of the british royalty from press does this mean the muslims in say yemen will now have to go to paris court to have their
3:06 pm
religious feelings respected. will be there is a i think that the double standards that been applied in the presence of. confusion all the. messages to the rest of the world are one so the royalty has been now. on the other side of the moment to have been allowed by the strikes and that there was durations of these would be due to so this is a bit of a sort of hysterical reaction from the government and prince now hysteric might certainly be the word for it the french foreign minister is worried about the tension the paper stoking and understandably cell while the prime minister is defending its freedom of speech i mean is there no argument or rather agreement within the french government itself on how to react to the situation. i think he's miserable the difference of a sensitivity of these kind of letters on one side how to treat the relationship
3:07 pm
between the west of the world and on the other side is some kind of approach like the one of the foreign minister who was in the sun president didn't want to close down some of the cities and schools around the world i mean this shows that france's fears for what does not even recently in france who was involved in the military intervention in the square in muslim countries are not about now if the newspaper is allowed to publish islam marking cartoons and the police they say they're likely to block a protest against an anti islamic film in paris later this week why are they allowed to express their anger. because france is the largest muslim community and the president is of course very afraid that this may be generated into a strong. between this community and the police forces and he wants to
3:08 pm
avoid to be taken into a trap so he's trying to preventive measures like that one the beat it would be demonstration but in prayers i think this will generate more anger. find a solution for this better and i do want to add that the french foreign minister has expressed worries over the fate of the french abroad after this publication do you think our freedom of speech is more important than me citizen safety. with the two different things the freedom of speech should be granted all democratic countries are those who'll affinities should be taken to justice this is something that is. normal most of the western countries and into the usual this is very early to confront it seems. to him the freedom of the mystery is something new that may be put into danger the security of the state of the
3:09 pm
citizens so two different reasons to react to that in fact it seems that the french government doesn't have a common policy of these feelings all right joining us live from brussels pollard off on a strategic and political analyst founder of the brussels based think tank the cia p.r. foundation thank you for your time. well with the muslim world gripped by rage there is one big question that's being asked across america just what or who are protesting that well some are adamant it's all about the movie other artes granite city can reports no such illusions. the white house keeps saying it was just the anti islamic the. that calls the muslims wrath across the world this is not a case of. protest or wrecked it if united states writ large or a us policy in this is in response to a video that is offensive but that's a claim no one is buying the administration wants us to believe it's not the
3:10 pm
administration's policies that have generated this behavior it's this one idiotic piece of so-called film which is right out there for two months well it is you know you stupid film that nobody seen causes people to assassinate ambassadors to storm the embassy and the question the us media keep asking why do so many millions of muslims hate the usa but the answers they're getting are the answers very few in the u.s. want to hear if you're to point to one thing that makes some muslims hate the usa it would be. hypocrisy over democracy. while america the government now preaches democracy it has propped up authoritarian leaders but that's not the only accusation of hypocrisy that washington is facing there's also u.s. policy makers failure to condemn the violence when it suits their goals like the
3:11 pm
numerous terrorist attacks in syria washington seems to approve of them as long as they are targeting supporters of the government or another act of violence a rebel mob executing colonel qadhafi the u.s. secretary of state cheered at the news yes we came we saw that he died but that. washington's failure to condemn all violence equally has prompted radicals to take an even more aggressive course if most americans understood what was being done in our name in the stabilizing the middle east and north africa it would be absolutely horrified what other result can we expect these people they have no hope their economies are destroyed. they're calling for foreign invaders of course this kind of thing is going to to happen. when the tragedy in libya happened in the international community wholeheartedly condemned the attacks on american diplomats but the us for its part has been quite selective in condemning violence it could be that the white house thought by supporting revolutions by fostering regime change
3:12 pm
they were winning hearts and minds in the muslim world but that doesn't appear to be the case for now the obama administration constantly refers to the same type of logic film as the sole reason behind what's happening a reasoning which basically allows them to avoid addressing the deeper issues in washington i'm going to check out the video pictures and the full spectrum of opinion on the global islamic protest all at r.t. dot com there you can also find out more about the aggressive steps hillary clinton has promised to protect u.s. embassies abroad all that at r.t. dot com.
