“Days of Anger” in France, as thousands call for Jews to “get out”

You can read about the “Days of Anger” in France, in an article, written by Ian Tuttle, a William F. Buckley, Jr. Fellow at the National Review Institute.

This quote is from the article:

…. Jewish leaders blame the upswing in anti-Semitic attacks on four factors, the Post reports: “classic scapegoating amid hard economic times, the growing strength of far-right nationalists, a deteriorating relationship between black Europeans and Jews, and, importantly, increasing tensions with Europe’s surging Muslim population.”

It is this last cause that helps to explain how thousands of citizens in a country oppressed by the Third Reich not even 75 years ago has come to dally, at least rhetorically, with the notion of a Final Solution. […]

Nationalistic tripe is one thing. But the protesters also took to proclaiming “Faurisson is right! Gas chambers are bulls**t!” Robert Faurisson is a French academic with a history of World War II revisionism. In 1978 he published an article entitled “The Diary of Anne Frank — Is It Authentic?” and he has declared, “Never did Hitler order or permit the killing of a person because of his or her race or religion.” For his “courage” he received an award in 2012 from Iran’s then-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. That French anti-Semites have landed on Faurisson for an intellectual leader is alarming, to put it mildly.

I agree that Robert Faurisson is not the best of the revisionists, but he is French, so I think that is why he is admired by the French people who want the Jews out of France.

In my humble opinion, Faurisson was completely wrong in his analysis of the Diary of Anne Frank.  I wrote about this on a blog post at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/02/19/the-dairy-of-anne-frank-is-it-authentic/
