Sophisticated Europeans

Excellent story reported on the front page of the Canard this week.

Philippe Douste-Blazy, the new French Minister for Europe was "visiting the new Yad Vashem museum in Jerusalem, Douste-Blazy, while looking at a map of Europe showing the number of Jews living in each country before and after the Holocaust, apparently asked:

'Were there no Jews killed in England?'
'But, Minister, England was not occupied by the Nazis!'
'But no Jews were expelled from England?' replies Douste-Blazy."
