    I wouldn't use the term 'racist', racism is a strong word, but it seems that this word has lost a lot of its value when every second person is using it twice a day.
    I actually don't use the term racist lightly, unlike a lot of PC people... but France is definitely a racist place, and it's because of its inherent xenophobia. The two are linked, for sure.

    It is the fact that she CHANGED her behavior that makes it so obvious that hers is a political statement.
    So in your lifetime, you've never changed or evolved your beliefs, and you don't believe others have that right? Is that really what you're saying?

    If you cannot understand basic English, that is your problem, not mine.

    Same could be said about many Western-Europe nations today.

    Oieeeee, you're speaking just like Jean-Marie Le Pen or Philippe De Villiers.

    So you're Israeli, how do you define Israeli culture? Isn't it a melting pot of many different cultural backgrounds ?

    The majority of the Muslim immigrants are blending into the society just fine, the way the millions of Polish, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Armenian.... immigrants did before them. It might take a few generations and the end of the discrimination of the French against them and they will blend in just like papa dans maman.

    Really, you can tell?
    Did you share a room with them or something?
    So you're Israeli, how do you define Israeli culture? Isn't it a melting pot of many different cultural backgrounds ?
    Indeed it is, just like America, but there is a bigger culture that unites 'em all.

    But wait, we're speaking about France here, France is not a melting pot, why would you bring up the subject, Mira?

    You are free to believe so.
    It seems to me as if most of them aren't even trying to blend.
