Summary: 

Iran’s state-controlled Press TV here says that Zemmour “was convicted for saying that France has been ‘colonized’ by Muslims, even though colonization is done by a group with power, whereas France’s Muslims are on the bottom of the nation’s social ladder.”

Yes, of course. This is indeed a historically unprecedented type of colonization. But the idea that a group at the bottom of a nation’s social ladder could not possibly take power is, to say the least, unsupported by history.

Note also how this piece from Press TV has the same tone and resorts to the same tropes that we constantly see in the Western establishment media: any opposition to mass Muslim migration into Europe is “Islamophobia” and “racism,” Muslims are the new Jews, etc. The latter claim is as offensive as it is risible. Jews during the Nazi period weren’t committing terror attacks or boasting of imminent conquest. Nor is anyone calling for a mass extermination of Muslims; nor criticism of jihad violence and Sharia oppression tantamount to such a call.
