I'm french. Your "friend" is a liar. You should be ashamed for being so naive as to believe him. Don't you think that this would be a matter of *international* importance if it were true ? That you believed this at all goes a long way to show how french people are presented to you, and how impressionable you are. You do know that we've overthrown Vichy's government with the US' and GB's help, DO YOU ? What's next ? hitlerian salutes in school or something ? geee
Now I join Lurker and I challenge *anybody* to show a picture of these imaginary signs... I'm not even asking for it to be "many" like you asserted, only one single sign will be enough to win the challenge.
Note: I'll even make the trip to the town and restaurant where these pictures were supposedly be from in order to disprove this obvious lie. If I find such a sign, I will publicly apologize and, of course, signal this to the authorities as it would be utterly illegal : racial dscrimination is a VERY sensitive subject here, and as mossad said, almost bordering on infrigdment of freedom of expression.
>i will first say that i only repeated what my friend said
Liars don't make good friends. IANAL but I'm fairly positive that "i was only repeating what was told to me" is not a valid libel defence.
Now just so you get it, what do you think would be the reaction of this board if I pretended that a friend of mine, coming back from the US, saw signs in restaurants that read "No muslims" and that "not all had them, but [that] there were many" ? It would be an obvious lie, and Pete, Tim, and perhaps yourself would give me what I deserve for repeating it.
