While some of France's citizens might find controversial French comedian Dieudonne M'bala M'bala's jokes about the Holocaust and open contempt for Jewish people humorous, the police in France don't -- and this time M'bala has gone one step too far.

Even though the comedian does have a substantial following of fans, mainly ones who hate Jews, he seems to align himself with radical Islam and is more of a hate-monger than a comedian.

Now, following an extremely tasteless Facebook post, M'bala is facing up to seven years in prison for inciting terrorism.

In the controversial post, M'bala went as far as to sympathize with terrorist Amedy Coulibaly, who took hostages and killed five people at a kosher supermarket in Paris on Friday. While the French comedian joked that his humor was comparable to that of Charlie Hebdo, he indicated in the post that he had lots in common with Coulibaly.

'Tonight, as far as I'm concerned, I feel like Charlie Coulibaly."
"For a year, I have been treated like public enemy number one, while I seek to do nothing but make people laugh."

In speaking about the opening of the new inquiry into the comedian, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the following.

"Racism, anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial, and apology for terrorism are not opinions, these are offences."

It remains to be seen whether, or when, the six million Muslims living in France will stand up against terror and denounce the actions of their Muslim brethren last week, which may have changed the status quo in this European country for good.
