The French anti-Zionist and civic nationalist writer Alain Soral has finally been arrested. This has been a long time coming. Apparently he was simply taken in the street by three police officers in plainclothes.
According to his website ÃgalitÃ© & RÃ©conciliation:
Alain Soral was taken into custody on Tuesday July 28, 2020 at the end of the afternoon.
The three individuals who arrested him were police officers.
His 24-hour police custody has been extended.
According to his lawyers, he was arrested as part of a preliminary investigation for a press offense: âincitement to commit a crime or offense violating the interests of the nationâ (article 24 paragraph 4 of the law of July 29, 1881 ). The offenses in question include, for example, providing false information, conspiracy, insurrectionary movement, raising of armed forces, etc.

The International League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism (effectively the French SPLC) quoting an old French film: âJustice is like the Virgin Mary. If she does not appear from time to time, doubt sets in.â
LâantiquitÃ© Alain Soral ne se baladera pas ce soir librement dans les rues parisiennes. Case prison pour Alain Soral.
Fin du match pour les antisÃ©mites qui pensent agir librement. https://t.co/Ol0uG6usc0

The Union of Jewish Student of France: âThe old relic Alain Soral will not freely walk the streets of Paris this evening. Alain Soral goes to jail. This is end of the game for anti-Semites who think they can act freely.â
Meyer Habib, a rather dimwitted MP representing French citizens in Israel, suggested that the French justice system should follow the lead of California-based tech giants: âThe anti-Semitic and holocaust-denying low-life Alain Soral once again arrested! Condemned by the courts 3 times in 2 years, it is high time that he rot in jail! With DieudonnÃ© as his cell partner.
