They’re afraid Parisians will mistake actors for actual terrorists? Does this mean that French filmmakers actually make movies about Islamic jihad terrorists? If they did that in the U.S., the Hamas-linked terror organization the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) would be on them faster than white on rice with charges of “racism” and “bigotry.”
They’re also afraid that real jihad terrorists will target the actors playing law enforcement officials. And so they curtail their activities out of fear, which is just what the jihadists want.
“Paris stops action movies being filmed around the city due to fears locals could mistake actors for terrorists in wake of Charlie Hebdo massacre,” by John Hall, MailOnline, February 5, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Paris has banned action movies being filmed in and around the city over concerns that locals could mistake the actors for genuine terrorists following last month’s Charlie Hebdo massacre.
Filming outdoor scenes with police, army or security services was quietly banned in the aftermath of the attacks in the French capital that left 17 dead, along with the three gunmen.
Police officials responsible for granting permission for outdoor filming in the city said the ban is intended to prevent passers-by confusing chase scenes for authentic police incidents – and may even prevent actors and crew becoming an easy target for terror attacks themselves.
Speaking of the decision to ban action movies, Sylvie Barnaud, the police official who grants outside filming permission in Paris, said: ‘There’s a problem with these action-type scenes, as the actors in uniform could be targets for terrorists.’
‘Also, the actors could pose confusion for the general public during this highly sensitive period.’
She did not know how long the ban could last, but there was not indication it would be reversed anytime soon….
