Although I don't think the subject story is false, we need to consider the source. Reporting of Andy Geller of the New York Post, has been described as "problematic" because of his sensationalistic style.

First of all, one can hardly label the critisizing of wearing an Israelian flag as anti-semitism ("He told us to go back to Israel and said that we were stupid and should be ashamed to walk around with an Israeli flag,"). There are certain things which are simply 'not done' as the British put it. Wearing a hat or even shorts in church is such a thing and one can also argue wether wearing a national flag in a model gas-chamber in Auschwitz is appropiate.
"Family stung by anti-Semitism. She and her husband Greg Baer, 42, discovered the mustard markings on one of their three vehicles in their Pond Street driveway last Tuesday morning. Jamie Baer's son, who is Greg's stepson, attends Franklin High School with the threesuspects, they said." - August 3, 2004 http://www.milforddailynews.com/localRegional/view.bg?articleid=53080

I think it's funny that only Jewish cemetery was mentioned in the last one article. The exactly same thing happened to Muslim cemeteries as well. But why doesn't any of galaxy's news that mention this?

There is a difference between criticizing somebody for displaying a flag at an inappropriate time and screaming antiJewish insults at someone. Even you can see that? It seems to me that these people weren't criticizing a person wearing a flag; they were criticizing a person wearing the flag of the Jewish state.
Frankly, if I were visiting Auschwitz, I could think of no better tribute to the Jews who died there then wearing an Israeli flag.
If you truly feel that the French people were simply criticizing the Jewish students for wearing a flag, then fine. But I think that it's a stretch for anyone to believe.
Thirdly, the lack of any information on these 3 alleged 'anti-semites' doesn't give the whole article much credibility. Perhaps these people were Jewish as well
If they were Jewish, why would they be screaming anti-Jewish insults at the group of students? I suppose we can make a thousand "What if" arguments.
Because that's what Galaxy5 wants. Because he's the living example of "The Ugly American."
Alpha, don't call yourself a centrist when you are a flaming liberal. And don't call anyone an "Ugly American" when you are far worse.

Scorpio, it is true. You noticed how all the anti-French threads were started by this person? For the last 3 weeks or so he has done nothing but bash France. Why? Because French did not kiss Bush's ass. That is why. Alpha is correct that Galaxy5 is the stereotypical "ugly American".

First of all, I don't see any mention of that story on CNN or yahoo.
And more important, I'm really tired of being suspected all the time of anti-something because I'm French. And that's precisely what Galaxy5 tries to do.
His personal hatred against French is his own problem, I don't care. But like it seems the new trend, every isolated anti-semitic act occuring in France or involving a French is showed like a major terrorist attack backed by the governement. Hey guys, come on, back on earth !!
Anti-semitism is not new and is not French, it happens everywhere, even in Israel !

Stick it in your ear. You don't see me going around, starting anti-French, anti-foreigner threads like Galaxy 5 all the time.
And what exactly is wrong with him having anti-France feelings? Heck, not too long ago many restaurants were dumping French wine into the streets. It wasn't just Galaxy 5, I would wager that a majority of Americans felt/feel hostility to France. I'm not saying this is good or bad but it does exist. Perhaps all Americans are dumb, as Michael Moore so eloquently argues? (sarcasm)
And btw, he only posted an article. If a certain group of members hadn't responded first, this thread could have easily turned into a Middle East debate. He simply posted an article and then said he saw it on CNN and Fox News; the whole discussion about anti-French attitudes has been started and instigated by other members. Meanwhile, the article at hand, is being ignored.
And since when, my friend, is critisizing someone who is obviously trying to start a flamewar against the French, a sign of any political leanings? What a crock of shit that is.
I didn't mean you are a flaming liberal from this thread alone; it comes after months of reading your views...
Thanks for the laugh, and making yourself look really foolish. I guess I have to add you to tha list of right-wing nutjobs on the fourm. Welcome to the club.

Rjpieces: And what exactly is wrong with him having anti-France feelings?
Let me rephrase that:
"And what exactly is wrong with him having anti-USA feelings?"
"And what exactly is wrong with him having anti-Israel feelings?"
"And what exactly is wrong with him having anti-Canada feelings?"
And so on and so on...
A sufficiently narrow mind will always find a way to blame any group of people for anything, regardless of their individual involvement or lack thereof. In the end, it will always fall back on the one who´s propagating this idiotic nonsense.
