French Pig News

A French court has ruled that distributing pork soup to the homeless is not racist (hat tip: LGF).

A French court ruled Tuesday that an organization with far-right links can continue offering pork soup to the homeless, rejecting police complaints that the food distribution was racist.

Police banned the soup kitchen last month, arguing that the handouts discriminated against Jews and Muslims who do not eat pork on religious grounds.

The administrative court said the distribution was “clearly discriminatory,” but could not be stopped because the organizers offered to feed anyone who asked for help.

The mayor of Paris condemned the ruling and urged the police to appeal the ruling.

“Faced by this initiative which stinks of xenophobia, I want once again to express city hall’s desire to fight all forms of discrimination, racism and anti-Semitism,” mayor Bertrand Delanoe said in a statement.

The food handouts are organized by a nationalist group called Solidarity of the French (SDF). It says its “pig soup,” which uses pork fat for stock, is country fare much loved by French traditionalists.

Now that’s what I call soup Nazis.

And still on the topic of France and pork, I think that’s a pig with wings I see in the air…

An official report published recently by the French government says that resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will not bring an end to the threat of global terrorism.

The report, named “Internal Security vs. Terror Threats” is an official publication of the French government. The report says that “since Europe is closer and more accessible to the Middle East than the United States, it serves as an alternative to anyone seeking to attack the “distant enemy.” Europe contains a variety of appropriate targets, some of which are connected with the United States and with Israel, and a strike on one or more of these targets would draw huge international attention.”

In addition, the report says, Europe has a large population of Muslim immigrants which creates an area where there is direct contact with the conflict areas.

The report also says that “some of the conflicts in the Middle East are mentioned extensively in the rhetoric uttered by the Islamist terrorists. However, the resolution of these conflicts would have no effect on ending global terror, which is functionally disconnected from these conflicts.”

Sources in Israel have attributed great importance to this report and the that it separates the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, along with other conflicts in the Middle East such as the situation in Iraq, from the phenomenon of global terrorism. This distinction in the report is important, they say, mainly because there are many in Europe and around the world who believe that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is at the root of global terrorism, and once that conflict is resolved, global terror will end.
