Apparently, it is illegal to show the brutality of ISIS/ISIL in France, even if you were a previous major candidate for Prime Minister.
Perhaps, though it might be BECAUSE you were a candidate for Prime Minister that you would come to face charges for tweeting a photo of a journalist killed by ISIS.
The irony in the manner in which this article is written is that a journalist, David Chazan, has chosen to take a tone that supports this censorship of the dissemination about the killing of a journalist.
Let’s just say that if you’re going to go to war, don’t go with this guy by your side. He’ll turn on you and side with the enemy the first chance he gets.
When a journalist writes a story about censorship, taking on a tone that attacks the victim of the censorship rather than the censor themselves, then the journalist has exposed he’s not actually a journalist, he’s simply a state agent working to undermine the free press, while claiming, dishonestly, to be part of that free press.

|Marine Le Pen charged in France for tweeting gruesome pictures of Isil violence|
Marine Le Pen, the French far-right leader, was charged on Thursday for posting graphic images of atrocities by Isil jihadists on Twitter — including a photograph of the decapitated body of an American reporter.
The move by a judge in Nanterre, a Paris suburb, came after the National Assembly voted in November to strip the National Front president of her parliamentary immunity from prosecution for tweeting three photographs showing killings by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
The images, tweeted in December 2015 with the caption “This is Daesh [the Arabic acronym for Isil],” included a picture of the beheaded journalist, James Foley, a man on fire in a cage and a tank driving over another victim.
……The investigation is unlikely to affect her popularity with her core supporters. However, she appears increasingly isolated within the party. Many FN voters would prefer her niece, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, 28, as leader. Others remain loyal to her estranged father, the party’s 89-year-old founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has spoken out against her leadership and the proposed name change.
