On January 18, 2020, a 16-year-old French girl’s life took a terrifying turn after she stood up to anti-gay attacks from a Muslim man, then criticized Islam on her Instagram account. As a result, she was doxxed and threatened with death, which forced her to withdraw from school and go into hiding. Mila has had to live under 24-hour police protection for the past seventeen months. Thirteen people who issued some of the hundreds of thousands of death threats against Mila are being tried in court.
At the time, Mila was a tenth grader living in Lyon, France. The young singer was having a live chat with her followers on her Instagram account. A Muslim boy started hitting on her. Mila let him know that she was not interested. She addressed her sexuality and announced that she is gay. The Muslim launched into a tirade, calling her a “dirty lesbian” and “dirty racist whore”. He swore that “Allah will have you [Mia] burn in Hell.”
In a follow-up video, streamed immediately after she was insulted, Mila responded by saying that she ‘hates religion'”.
Mila continued by stating; the Qur’an is a religion of hatred, and Islam is a ‘shit religion.’ She went on: “Islam is sh*t… I’m not a racist at all. One cannot simply be racist against a religion…But some people think you can. How stupid can you be!”
Mila made it clear she will be silenced by critics, stating, “I spoke my mind. I’m entitled to it and don’t regret it. You are not going to make me regret it. Some people will be upset with me because I’m expressing what I think. I don’t care. I say what I want and what I think.”
After Mila’s video, over 100,000 death threats were directed at the young girl. She was doxxed, forced into hiding, and began living under police protection. The teenager had to be moved to a new school to ‘guarantee her safety after receiving death threats and threats to rape her.’ Unfortunately, even at the new school, her life was under so much of a threat that she had to be homeschooled. As stated by Jihad Watch;
…her freedom has been destroyed under the virtual Sharia that prevails in France, supported by its President [Emmanual Macron]: “in October, French President Emmanuel Macron warned against ‘stigmatizing’ Muslims or linking Islam with the fight against terrorism.” But young Mila remains unrepentant, as she should. She did nothing wrong.
In a subsequent television appearance on the program “Daily” on TMC, she stood by her comments, saying: ‘I absolutely do not regret what I said, it was really what I thought.’
The 16-year-old wrote a song on January 24, 2020, to help her process the terrifying experience she was going through. Mia shared some of the song and lyrics during the interview above;
“I’m frightened by million of eyes that observe me through the news and media. That’s not what I wanted, no, not in this context.
I dreamed of shining on stage; I didn’t want this war; this story reminds me that a dream remains a dream.
Even though they intimidate me, they can’t defeat me. Tell them they can try to win; they will not be able to take what I have in my head.
The passion of my whole life ended in dust will nevertheless remain rooted in me. For a few absurd words, they have destroyed my life and my dreams. So this broken voice sings one last time.
Because of blasphemy, I will never live like before. To be honest, I don’t even know if I’ll live much longer. Much longer.
To be honest, I don’t even know if I’ll live much longer. Much longer.
France Targets Victims of Islamic Abuse
A terrifying number of French seem to believe that Mila and others victims of Islamic abuse brought the violence and threats by Muslims onto themselves. It seems, most of France has surrendered to Islam and the sharia rule that those who blaspheme against Islam deserve death.
Despite the insults, threats of public lynching, burning her alive, throwing acid on her, rape, and death threats, the Delegate General of the French council of the Muslim faith thought Mia had it coming. “I say this girl; she knows what she said; she needs to take responsibility, and well, now, listen, she has to own the consequences of what she said.”
LGBTQ groups turned their back on young Mila. Many of them saying, “She should be ashamed of showing so little openness of mind,” Feminists groups would not lend their support to Mila either.
Although France’s prosecutor launched an investigation into ‘death threats, threats to commit a crime and harassment against Mila, the prosecutor also opened an inquiry into whether she ‘provoked religious hatred’ in her Instagram video. A judge eventually dismissed the case against her.
The French government had also launched an investigation into school teacher Samuel Paty days before a Muslim refugee beheaded him for allegedly “insulting Islam.”
France has developed a societal norm of silencing and prosecuting any dissenting opinions against Islam and illegal immigration. As a result, we have already seen Brigitte Bardot, Marine Le Pen, and Eric Zemmour face criminal scrutiny in Macron’s France.
Some of Mila’s Tormentors Get Their Day in Court
Ten men and three women aged between 18 and 30 are standing trial. Eight are accused of making death threats. Those who threatened Mila with death face up to three years in prison and a fine of 45,000 euros.
Ahead of the trial, the now 18-year-old teenager posted a message on Twitter asking for support: “Together, let’s refuse to live in fear.
Mila is attending the trials of her cyber attackers. She told reporters,
This is why we are here today. It is time to realize that fear is changing sides, and the more numerous we are, it will open up. The stronger we become and the more powerful we are when faced with threats and harassment, which will only worsen if we continue to do nothing if we continue to submit to it.
Speaking at the court on Thursday, her lawyer Richard Malka said Mila’s life had been “stolen,” even though she had not “broken any law” in criticizing Islam.
Mila will continue until someone finds and kills her, stated her attorney. He detailed some of the threats she has been facing, “You’ve deserved that I slit your throat, you f***ing bitch.” Some of the threats refer to the assassination of Samuel Paty: “A day will come when you are killed for your words, my dear, even an unknown History teacher has had his throat slit for caricatures. You are known, everyone hates you (including me), and everyone wants your skin; it’s only a matter of time. “
Mila’s lawyer specifies that he has tens of thousands of threats in his possession. The lawyer gave the media several examples, “Dirty bitch, I hope that rots like you will end up beheaded like the other.” And also: “get raped,” ” I am going to rape you in your grave,” “ Die, You fucking shit.”
Behind these horrific comments are internet users, to whom anonymity has often served as a wall of protection. This trial is “about 13 people, without any criminal history, who, hid behind their screens and their pseudonym, wishing to crush the skull and lacerate the body of a minor who had become their scapegoat”, exclaimed her attorney. “This digital lynching must be sanctioned,” indicated Mr. Malka, who cites his client the right to blaspheme.
I can’t get over the fact that she lives as a recluse. Imagine her life; she can no longer walk peacefully, she can no longer do internships, all doors are closed to her,” he added.
It’s the first time in the history of this country that a young woman of this age is the object of 24/7 police protection. That didn’t exist before now. Never in the history of this country has a young girl received this level of hate messages.
Mila’s Feelings of Despair
Despite Mila’s continued strength, she lives under constant fear of death, battles loneliness, and despair. Mila shared her distress in a recent interview:
“I no longer have anything, no more life, no more social life other than on the networks; I have the impression of being a robot, of no longer being a human being but a scapegoat. Helpless, alone in the world. It’s horrible, this feeling of loneliness. I just have to shoot myself; it is no longer bearable. “
Mila’s Parents Speak Out
“Their daughter is a victim,” explains Mila’s lawyer. “A victim of death threats, a victim of assault, victim of computer looting. But she is forced to leave her high school while she has committed no crime and not harmed anyone. And there is no action taken by her school against those who threatened and harassed her. Instead, there is a passivity of the National Education which prefers to close its eyes rather than to teach what freedom of expression is. And freedom of opinion. This is what Mila’s parents wanted to point out, with a lot of dignity. Not for Mila, because it’s too late, but so that it’s not happening again.”
Already Two Convictions for Death Threats
Two people have already been sentenced to prison terms for threatening Mila with death. In August 2020, a man was sentenced in Malta to a one-year suspended sentenced for death and rape threats made on Facebook. The high school student was staying on the island while on an educational, linguistic trip.
In October, a 23-year-old was sentenced to three years over online video death threats against Mila and her mother. In one video, he mimics a throat cut and repeatedly threatens Mila and her mother.
The investigations are continuing to find other perpetrators of the over 100,000 death threats.
Muslim and the Left Silence Islamic Critics
Muslim supremacists and the Left have put all of France and the rest of the free world on notice: if you insult Muhammad, Islam, their holy books, or even fail to consider Islamic law (Sharia) in all things, we will harm you.
In France, accusations of alleged Islamophobia by the left and Muslims have resulted in citizens being slaughtered, living in hiding, losing their careers, and living with targets on their backs.
Unfortunately, Islamic attacks and intimidation across France are the norm in a country struggling with mass illegal migration. France is the main Islamic country in Europe, with 8.8% of its population now being Muslim. According to Gatestone, Islam is the second-largest religion in France but comes in first if one counts the number of active practitioners.
The goal of the left and Islam is to force all of the world’s people to submit to their ideology. “Submission” is the proper translation of the word “Islam.” Submission will be accomplished through force or by voluntary conversion.
Leftist activists, politicians, and organizations assist this jihad on free speech by calling all who openly criticize Islam of being guilty of “hate speech.” This is a secular equivalent of “blasphemy” and is working its way into Western law.
Mila Refuses To Be Silenced
Despite the dire consequences to Mila’s life, she has refused to be silenced and live under sharia rule. As National Rally leader and 2022 Presidential candidate, Marine Le Pen tweeted: “This young girl is braver than the whole political class in power over the past 30 years.”
An editorial from Charlie Hebdo stated: “Mila was insulted by the dumbest first, then threatened by the most fanatical, and finally abandoned by the most cowardly.”
“The more of us who choose to stay silent, the more dangerous it becomes for the few who continue speaking out,” expressed a Charlie Hebdo journalist. The fact is that where critical thinking & free speech end, the West ends as well.
Later this month, on June 23, Mila will release a book about her experiences, entitled “I Am the Price of Your Freedom.”
