France complains about EU criticism of Gypsy deportationsNOW SARKOZY KNOWS HOW ISRAEL FEELS NEARLY EVERY WEEK WHEN SHE IS UNFAIRLY COMPARED TO THE NAZIS.
President Sarkozy's office calls EU Justice Commissioner comments comparing French behavior to WII atrocities as unacceptable.
President Nicolas Sarkozy's office fired back Wednesday at European Commission criticism of France's crackdown on Gypsies, or Roma, saying some of the complaints are unacceptable.
A day earlier, EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding had called France's expulsions of Roma to Eastern Europe "a disgrace" — as well as something she "thought that Europe would not have to witness again after the second World War."
BTW: JUST TO REFRESH REDING'S MEMORY: EUROPE EXPELLED/RELOCATED NEARLY 20 MILLION GERMANS AFTER THE WAR. WIKI:
From 1944 until 1948, between 13.5 and 16.5 million Germans were expelled, evacuated or fled from Central and Eastern Europe. The Statistisches Bundesamt estimates the loss of life at 2.1 million SO THIS IS A CASE OF THE HUGE EU KETTLE CALLING THE ITTY-BITTY FRENCH POT BLACK.
