Dear Daniel Pipes,

You wrote: "In 1943, where would you have rather been living? In Germany or in Iraq? In Italy or in Senegal?"

I disagree. Just a few contemporary examples.

Tunisia, which was a French protectorate, was occupied by the IIIrd Reich from Novembre 1942 till May 1943. Jews were persecuted by anti-Semitic laws edicted by French Vichy regime, and Nazi Army. They were victimized by rackets, rapes, forced labour camps, deportation, round-up, etc. In some Moroccan towns, some Jews had to live to overcrowded Mellahs (ghettos), etc. In Baghda, Jews were victims of Farhud, etc.

I invite you to read my articles about documentaries dealing with those topics:

You are making my point, as these atrocities were conducted by people of Christian origins.
