Almost half of French oppose publication of cartoons depicting Islam’s Prophet Mohammed, according to a poll Sunday, as global debate deepened free speech in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo killings.

在《查理週刊》屠殺事件發生後,全球對於言論自由的論辯越加熱烈之際,週日一份民調顯示,近半數法國人反對刊載描繪伊斯蘭先知穆罕默德的卡通。

The Ifop poll found 42 percent believe Mohammed cartoons seen as offensive by many Muslims should not be published. Fifty percent said they backed "limitations on free speech online and on social networks." However, 57 percent said opposition from Muslims should not prevent the cartoons being published.

「法國公共輿論研究所」(Ifop)所做的民調發現,42%受訪者認為,被許多穆斯林視為冒犯的穆罕默德漫畫不應該刊登。50%受訪者說,他們支持「限制網路與社群網絡的言論自由」。不過,57%受訪者表示,穆斯林的反對不應阻礙該漫畫的刊登。

The poll found overwhelming support-- 81 percent --for stripping French nationality from dual nationals who have committed an act of terrorism on French soil.

這項民調發現,褫奪在法國從事恐怖主義行為的雙重國籍者的法國國籍,獲壓倒性支持(81%)。

Sixty eight percent favoured banning French citizens from returning to the country if "they are suspected of having gone to fight in countries or regions controled by terrorist groups," such as Syria. The same percentage backed bans on people suspected of wanting to join jihadist movements from leaving France.

68%受訪者支持法國公民若「涉嫌前往恐怖組織控制的國家或地區作戰」,例如敘利亞,則應禁止其返國。相同比率的受訪者支持禁止疑似想加入聖戰士運動的人離開法國。

The poll was conducted last week in the wake of the slaughter at Charlie Hebdo’s office in Paris, where Islamist gunmen killed 12 people, saying they were taking revenge for repeated publication by the magazine of Prophet Mohammed caricatures. (AFP)
