  • Ouch!

    Posted by Shannon Love on November 8th, 2005 (All posts by )

    Ralph Peters on the French riots in the New York Post:

    “Does anyone really believe that the country that enthusiastically handed over more of its Jewish citizens to the Nazis than the Nazis asked for is going to treat brown or black Muslims as equals?”

    That’s really brutal but all the more troubling because it might be accurate.

     

    One Response to “Ouch!”

    1. James d. Says:

      I guess what might go a long way towards answering that is whether or not the French have changed since WWII. On the whole, are the French still clinging to anti-Semitic or colonial ways of thinking? That is, the succeeding generations of those French alive during WWII, those who haven’t immigrated.

      And if they haven’t changed their thinking, what about the rest of Europe?
      One thing that’s for sure: right about now, that idea of a happy EU blinding approving a constitution seems like something dreamed up in an alternate reality.
