tues., 21 mar., 2017: le french trumpo-elle, ii.: give us This Day our Daily Curse


FRENCH:  Merde aux Arabes...    

[NOTE : An invective that French Arabs,  esp. Algerians, have been hearing from Le Pen’s National Front (a racist,  anti-Semitic,  Islamophobic,  homophobic & neo-fascist organization making life in France miserable for immigrants  — esp. those from former French African colonies,  esp. Algeria,  & other racial & religious minorities, & gays) since the early  1970s,  when a series of Arab-on-French violent incidents in Southern France were followed by widespread Anti-French-Arab retaliations: Arab immigrants murdered by the police — either on their way to jail for minor offenses,  in jail,  or immediately upon release from jail  (anticipating the situation w/ Black Lives Matter by decades),  cafés or homes or hotels strafed with machine gun fire or bombed w/ Molotiv cocktails. This was so widespread that it adversely affected France’s relationships w/ the newly independent countries of north & equatorial Africa for several years, esp. during the early to mi-1970s... [NOTE: for some context & further ref., read The Very Sad Story of Salah Bougrine, from Bruce Chatwin’s essay collection, What Am I Doing Here, p. 241 — 262, orig. pub., 1989]

   ‡)   Shit to the Arabs...”  /  Shite to the Arabs...”
