French police suspended over anti-Semitic rant
By Tom Chivers and agencies
Three police officers in Amiens, France, have been suspended from duty following a racist outburst in a bar in the town, the French ministry of the interior has said.
The three men shouted anti-Semitic and white supremacist slogans, and made Nazi salutes, after bursting in to Le Goodness bar last Friday, AFP reports.
An account on the website of the National Office for Vigilance against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA) said that five people, including three police officers, shouted "sieg heil" and "heil Hitler" before shouting "violently anti-Semitic" slogans and throwing several Nazi salutes.
According to the BNVCA report the slogans included "death to the Jews" and "we need to open the gas chambers".
The interior ministry confirmed the account, adding that the men responsible had been suspended from their duties.
Michele Alliot-Marie, the Interior Minister, issued a statement strongly condemning "this intolerable behaviour ... which is in total contradiction with the police force's code of ethics."
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, it appears that the French authorities didn't feel it behooved them to release the names of the officers that were suspended...
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, could it be that they are 'moderate' moslems?!?
