I totally give up,
I don't knoz hoz to do this,
Thanks for the photos. Do you know what the red flag in #9 is for?
But I think you've been here longer than me!
my keyboard has been turned back into a US one, and so noz I can barely type, and I can't post these photos.
Thanks for posting these, Sarah. And thanks to Les Francais and Les Francaise for having this demonstration.
Will this be covered by the leftist-dominated-mainstream media?
I think not.
You wrote good html. I figure it's the host site.
I am so a noob
You used the IP address to get around the problem. (I just learned something new - thanks)
I have the same problum... stoopid keyboard!
I can't get them to post either. Somebody will come to the rescue!
Yes... if you right-click the image you can get the actual image location, and insert that into the img src if it works (places like geocities, angelfire block remote hosting of pics.) :)
Thanks for posting these.
So I went around and took pictures and interviewed people!
I told people that I was from this US web site called free republic!
So this was the general thing: most were Jewish, although there were many Frenchies. I overheard many remark that 'oh isn't it odd that there are no Arabs'
I asked people what was the purpose of the march, and it was funny how the answer was so similar: "We want to show our solidarity, we are against all forms of Racism", so just leave it to FR's Sarah to point out that there is really one basic issue now in France, there is only source of these race based acts of horrible violence. People were just so polite, like I was being rude to say the obvious.
could you also post the second 10? (#11 to 20) thanks
Extremely glad to see Parisians taking to the streets in protest against Anti-Semitism. It's a shame that this young man had to be tortured and murdered before people spoke out and said they'd had enough of the govt's shameful denial of what's been going on. Maybe now the French govt. will have the cojones to deal with Muslims. It's not poverty, it's Islam.
LOL, I love it. We have really gone international now. Not so pleasing is that people will not face this squarely for what it is. Political correctness kills.
Alouette, check out photos 6 and 7!! Its the Chabadniks putting tfillin on people!
(I took those for you!)
Thanks for the efforts. Bump....
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
It looks I missed 2 of the 20 pictures - do you know which ones? Thank you for taking all of them and posting them to us.
The red flags are Shomer Hatzair which I remember as a secular Marxist group.
The flags look horrible don't they?
Anyway, they're for Shomer HaTsair, Youth guard. Its a extremely anti-religious group that gained it's fame by stripping the morocans of all vestiges of religion when they first came to Israel, decades ago.
The ones you got look like the first 10, then there are 10 more
Wow, that high-school French comes in handy after all!
Photo 11 is from evangalical Protestants against antisemitism.
The crowd is very impressive in 14-17
I posted some more in posts #17 & 18, but counting all of them it looks like I only posted 18 of the 20 pictures you took at the demonstation.
Thanks for the explanation. I just googled Shomer Hatzair and did a little reading about it.
Sarah, are you visiting Paris or living there? I would have loved to be a part of the "manifestation" however small a step it might be. It's 1937 deja vu.
Well... the pictures in posts #17 & 18 are no longer there! Server overload?
It looks like the turnout was mostly Jewish. Is that accurate?
Okay. So they aren't showing up on the thread anymore (at least for me), but if you right-click the broken image icon, you can still "view image." Strange.
Vive La France! A bas les Mussulman barbarique
we've been here since August 2001. There were so many people there! The first photos were taken at about 3:15 at place de la République, and once I headed out towards Place Nation, the roads were totally blocked, meaning that the route was fully covered and no one was moving at all. I slipped out onto a side street and came in a photographed from the middle a bit, so one photo you can still see Place de la Republique in the way background and all the demonstrators are coming towards the camera, and then the next shot I'm aiming towards Nation, and you see only the backs of people and the roads are totally blocked.
My husband was hysterical when I told him my 'get-up', I had put on his professional photographer's vest and had a great camera, a notebook, and I went up to people and interviewed them! I would say that from 75% to 80% were Jewish. The rest had signs like the one 'Evangalistic Protestants against anti-semitism', or the group, 'Ne touche pas a mon pote', which are Frenchies that are against all forms of racism. (clueless useful idiots), oops, I mean kind hearted souls.
It was one of these who got a bit testy with me when I asked what did he see as the purpose of the rally, like what result was he hoping to see, and he said that it was a silent march in solidarity with those suffering from racism. And I said that wasn't there perhaps something that he would hope that the government might do to take action, like perhaps educating the culture that was able to do such a thing??? and he got all 'well things are obviously getting worse and now all the violence from the United States is finding it's way over here.' I said, 'huh?', no really I just said thank you, and what can I say, it's pathetic.
They are going to be majority muslim, when exactly? So my basic theory going in, being that the usefulness of expecting the French government to actually do something to protect the Jewish community at this point, it besides the point: The French Government cannot or simply will not do anything to save THEMSELVES.
Just wanted to ping you to this free republic exclusive report!
Best regards, Sarah
Meant to ping you here!
Thank you for your report. Sad for the French that there wasn't a better response. I have read that even when the Muslim perpetrators of anti-Semitic crimes are prosecuted they receive minimal sentences from judges.
