Only In Israel

Just another day in Europe.

Today, we find out Prince Harry found a nice costume idea for his latest party. How about a nazi soldier?
Prince Harry has apologised for wearing a swastika armband to a friend's fancy dress party.

Clarence House issued a statement in response to a photograph published on the front page of the Sun newspaper under the headline, "Harry the Nazi".

And just across the tunnel, in France, Jean-Marrie Le Pen makes another statement which makes us understand why he won second place in the last presidential elections. Apparently the Nazi occupation wasn't that bad.

"In France at least, the German occupation was not especially inhumane, even if there were a number of excesses - inevitable in a country of 550,000 sq km (220,000 sq miles)," he was quoted as saying.

"If the Germans had carried out mass executions across the country as the received wisdom would have it, then there wouldn't have been any need for concentration camps for political deportees."

He only forgot one thing:
More than 70,000 French Jews were deported during the Nazi occupation from 1940 until 1944. Thousands of civilians also died at the hands of the German army.
I've said it once, I'll say it again. Of all the things wrong about France there's nothing a few more years of German occupation won't solve.
