As More Jews Are Attacked In France -- Some Apparently Taking Up Mohammad Merah's Torch -- The NYT Frets About... Possible Repercussions to Muslims

They're worried about the repercussions?

Can we pause for a moment to worry just about the percussions themselves? Seems they're more of a clear and present danger, no?

But yeah let's worry about what may, possibly, speculatively transpire in the vague future.

Meh. That's true of all of Old Europe. They hate Jews more than anything. All of the European "anti-Holocaust denial speech laws" are beyond jokes. They arrest people for just claiming that the Holocaust didn't happen, or whatever, but then those same nations pursue every possible policy to insure the death of six million more Jews in Israel.

It's high time the GOOD Muslims in the world started speaking up about they're evil compatriots instead of keeping their mouths shut. Otherwise there isn't much reason for non-Muslims like myself to believe that the "good" Muslims are any different from the bad ones.

181 The way I see it, the Muslims aren't worried ENOUGH about repercussions. Because there aren't any. The government pre-empts them, and not enough citizens are willing to inflict them.

If the Muslims were given reason to sincerely believe that if one of them killed an infidel, five Muslims would similarly die, this shit would stop.

If the Muslims were given reason to sincerely believe that if one church were to be pillaged, five mosques would be wreck, this shit would stop.

If the Muslims were given reason to sincerely believe that if one American servicemen were killed by them, five of their jihadi would be put in the ground, this shit would stop.

If the Muslims were given reason to sincerely believe that if they were to blast the World Trade Center, then the Qaabah would be turned within hours into a glow-in-the-dark crater, this shit would never have started.

They don't have any fear of repercussions. They have every reason to believe there will be none, because our elected overlord do nothing.

182 51 Technically you are wrong, because those countries were governed directly by Germany. France was an ally. Look up VICHY.

Oh. I thought you wrote "occupied." You know, like Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia were "occupied." NOT like Vichy France, which wasn't "occupied."

I must have misread your comment.

Well, VICHY France was NOT occupied by the Germans, though I must admit that the northern half of the country did have German soldiers but was still administered by a French government. They were allied with Germany and actually did round up the Jews in 1942 and had them shipped off without any prodding by the Germans.

Poland, Latvia etc were completely incorporated into the Reich and were governed by Germans.

You could nitpick that Vichy France had no choice, but they cooperated lock, stock and barrel with Germany. While those who resisted were brave beyond belief, there were far more collaborators than resistance. Watch the movie about Klaus Barbie "Hotel Terminus" as well as "The Sorrow and the Pity."

183 France wasn't always full of assholes and collaborators; I know a very old lady who was in the French Resistance. She's been a widow for many years,and now she fondly recalls the several lovers she knew during that time (she met and married her GI spouse at the end ofthe war). By her account, there were many "good" people in France, and many "terrified" people in France, and a number of "worthless scum" people in France during WWII.

185 Re: Vichy France and battles in the Atlantic
---
The Germans occupied the remainder of France following the Vichy surrender of French North Africa after the Anglo-Canadian-British invasion in November 1942. The terms of the French capitulation to Germany in 1940 included the agreement to defend unoccupied French territories from the opponents of Germany and there capitulation in North Africa was a violation.

The British attacked the French fleet in port following the French capitulation to Germany which led the French to like the British even less than they did before. The French briefly resisted the Anglo-Can-Br invasion of North Africa before capitulating (notice the common theme).

In France as well as other occupied countries (but not Poland so much as most Polish leadership was eliminated by the Germans and the Russians), local law enforcement and round-ups was handled by local authorities who generally cooperated with the German occupiers for obvious reasons.

No one else in Europe cared much for the Jews, the Germans, or the Russians with the Germans often being the least disliked, at least initially after the occupations.

The first battles the U.S. fought in the Atlantic were against the U-boats and not the French off North Africa. In fact the first battles against the U-boats were before the Euro-Axis declarations of war against the U.S.

186 Here is another sign of this administration's "loyalty" to Israel:

Former U.S. diplomat John Bolton alleged Thursday that the Obama administration leaked a story about covert Israeli activity in order to
foil potential plans by the country to attack Iran's nuclear program.

"I
think this leak today is part of the administration’s campaign against
an Israeli attack.’ Bolton, a Fox News contributor, noted that a strike
launched from Azerbaijan would be much easier for the Israelis than a
strike launched from their own country - jets could stay over their
targets longer and worry less about refueling. But he said tipping the
Israelis’ hand by revealing 'very sensitive, very important information'
could frustrate such a plan.

'Clearly,
this is an administration-orchestrated leak,' Bolton told FoxNews.com.
'This is not a rogue CIA guy saying I think I’ll leak this out. It’s
just unprecedented to reveal this kind of information about one of your
own allies.'

187 You know that your are doing nothing more than trying to “push a string”
when the people involved are happy to become their own worst
stereotype.
