France Soir Editor Hit By Divine Retribution — From the Land of Debate, Discussion, and Tolerance

Well, France Soir's editor-in-chief didn't have to wait long for his divine retribution.

Of course, Jacques Lefranc was neither stabbed, beheaded, or blown up, but still, his punishment came from the French side — aka the land of debate, openness, tolerance, reason, republican values, and never-cave-inness (even though his boss is French-Egyptian) — so that must have hurt.

At least, several newspapers around the continent have taken up the fight.

Update: Needless to say, however, the fight is far from general in "Zeropa". Nestlé shows some typical Euro solidarity.

Incidentally, Le Monde 2 has a portfolio on Hamas. (One of the pictures turns out to be three election posters on a green wall; when I first saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a game show on Palestinian TV with three contestants vying to hit the buzzer first.)

Meanwhile, Davids Medienkritik has a list of Danish products to buy.

As for Dan Kauffman, the CoC editor asks that we sign the online petition.
