I haven't said to my daughter that unicorns don't exist. I might pretend, once in a while, that the meat we're about to eat is unicorn meat. That's an easy way to keep the world a marvellous place. [more]

The Charlie Hebdo cartoonists never promoted islamophobia not racial hatred. This is clearly an interpretation. This isn't the case with Mr. Dieudonné. He's explicit about it : Jews everywhere, Israel are the problem, they've always been and will… [more]

I don't. I'm getting tired of Dieudonné's and Alain Soral's gibberish. Internet has a very unfortunate adverse effect, exposure to your contemporaries worst paranoid bits. Which, unfortunately, in their case, consist in an inexhaustible logorrhea. [more]
