Seems like they don't uphold the same strong principles of "Freedom of speech" when it comes to Jews.

From 2009:

French cartoonist Maurice Sine on trial on charges of anti-Semitism over Sarkozy jibe, suggesting Jean Sarkozy, the son of the French president, was converting to Judaism for financial reasons.

"L'affaire Sine" followed the engagement of Mr Sarkozy, 22, to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress of an electronic goods chain. Commenting on an unfounded rumour that the president's son planned to convert to Judaism, Sine quipped: "He'll go a long way in life, that little lad."

A high-profile political commentator slammed the column as linking prejudice about Jews and social success. Charlie Hebdo's editor, Philippe Val, asked Sinet to apologise but he refused, exclaiming: "I'd rather cut my balls off."

Mr Val's decision to fire Sine was backed by a group of eminent intellectuals, including the philosopher Bernard-Henry LÚvy.



ps: I'm not taking sides, I never do as the truth is always a mixture of facts, but just throwing in a different angle which I'm sure was mentioned before.
