Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The last one i heard  : He-Midget now has a project for a "ministere de l'immigration". Can we say he's a (a little bit, on the edge, for electoral reasons only, etc) a little bit of a fascist yet?

But, in Sarkozy's usual winks and nods to the racists, i'd set aside the matter of the Harkis. Algerians can treat them as collabos if they want : it's not France's role, because France was the occupying power in Algeria.

I have no real emotional or personnal ties to the matter, and no in-depht knowldege of the period. However, it seems clear to me that France would have prefered these people not to exist - embarassing witnesses of a failure and a defeat - and treated them accordingly.

I like to believe i'd have been, then, part of the anti-colonisation left - and i find the way Harkis have been treated in France an absolute shame.
