“... You have been criticized for removing hatemongers and thus purportedly 'obstructing their human rights'... Freeze Corleone’s malicious hatred can kill and is not 'freedom of expression'.”

Paris, 25 September 2020 

In a letter to Sweden-based Spotify CEO, Mr. Daniel Ek, Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, commended Spotify for “having adopted a policy to remove hatemongers from its platform.”

Samuels brought to the CEO's attention “the French rapper, Freeze Corleone (a.k.a. Issa Lorenzo Diakhaté), who continues to abuse Spotify through his songs that incite to antisemitic hate.”

The letter stressed that, “Corleone is thereby poisoning young African Europeans against the Jewish community – which is already a target for extremists in Sweden and Jihadists across Europe and the Middle East.”

Some examples of Freeze Corleone’s malicious rap – inspired by his friend, comedian-ideologue Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, who is considered in France an inveterate antisemite:

“Everything for the family, so my children can live as Jew landlords; Kill a life, F a Rothschild; I arrived determined like Adolf in the 30s; in the shadow the Bilderberg conspiracy; to create an empire like young Adolf; I am in Dakar, you in your Zion centre, American indians, slavery; I don’t give a F, for BHL [Bernard-Henri Lévy]; I don’t give a F for the Shoah; I have the propaganda techniques of Goebbels; we get the German girls like the SS; Kill a life, Lord of war like Mullah Omar [former head of the Afghan Taliban and an antisemitic ideologist].”

Another song: “Too many Cohens, Jews in finance, politics, plots, school books... Against them is the courage and bravery of the 3rd Reich and its heroic mysticism.”

The Centre noted that, “Ek had been criticized for removing hatemongers and thus purportedly 'obstructing their human rights'.”

“Mr. Ek, we urge you to remove Freeze Corleone’s raps from Spotify, thus evoking awareness in Sweden and beyond that malicious hatred can kill and is not 'freedom of expression',” concluded Samuels.
