France – Muslim Rapper Cancels ‘Jihad’ Concert At 2015 Parisian ISIS Attack Concert Hall Bataclan

The French are known as staunch defenders of free speech, but when right-wing groups were informed that Muslim rapper Médine wanted to perform both his ‘Jihad’ (holy war) and ‘Bataclan’ albums in the Parisian Bataclan concert hall and had already started selling tickets, they were quick to launch massive protests.

The Bataclan concert hall was where a group of ISIS terrorists killed most of the 130 people during the 2015 November Paris attacks.

While the Eagles of Death Metal were playing a sold-out concert, 4 attackers shot the innocent victims who tried desperately to flee.

Although the rapper, who is of Algerian descent, has claimed to denounce Islamic fundamentalism, people still felt it would be an insult to the victim’s families given that he has songs which state that he wants to put "fatwas on the heads of these idiots."

Seeing the mass online protests and the great number of people that signed the online petition urging the concert the be withdrawn, the Bataclan concert hall management stated that they were indeed canceling his performance. They posted a message claiming it was done "out of respect for the victims of November 13, 2015, attacks and their families."

One of rapper Medine’s albums is called Jihad (holy war) and he also has songs where he attacks France's secular policies as discriminatory towards Muslims.

Ms. Marine Le Pen of the right-wing political party National Rally (formerly known as the Front National) said the cancellation of the planned concert was "a victory for all the victims of Islamic terrorism."

"This provocation did not belong in this venue, given its painful history," she stated.

Many of the rapper’s supporters who had already bought tickets for the planned October performance expressed their outrage at the news. Grouped under the hashtag, "I am Medine," his fans stated their discontent.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The French rapper Médine has canceled two concerts at the Bataclan because of far-right protests.
