France, overlooking the suggestion to "resort to historians" when it issued the so-called Armenian Genocide Law five years ago, now seeks assistance from historians in the face of accusations of having committed genocide..
"Memory study cannot be conducted by politicians; it is neither the business of parliamentary representatives nor that of senators," the French foreign minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said.
Politicians should leave history to the historians, the minister added last week. Algerian President Abdelaziz Buteflika accused France of having committed genocide in Algeria.
Talking to a French radio, "Memory studies are conducted by historians and researchers," said Doust-Blazy in response to a comment suggesting that "Buteflika insulted France by mentioning genocide."
Before he came to France, Buteflika held the country responsible for "conducting genocide against the Algerian identity" between 1830 and 1962.
Please notice how European conceit, racism, and hate is exhibited. France is truly the stink on shit that perfume cannot hide.
The video shows genocidal acts of an arrogant and cowardly race.
Dont point the finger at others Froggie.
It wont help you.
Got to love it when the French can't contain those inner true feelings. France, colonialism and genocide. Such sophistication.
