#1 And I thank him also, merci beaucoup or as a friend of mine in Texas would say "mercy bucket". Why criticize a guy who is also against the USA policy of unitateral defence by using unilateral offense? Why criticize a guy who is anti-semetic when you are the President of the most anti-semetic country in Europe? And when your best allie is Germany who you represent from time to tim what would give you the right to defend Jews? So, mercy bucket, old pard, for once again proving to all of us what a complete arrogant, ignoramus, chicken shit, yella belly you really are.

#2 "I never thought the Europeans would be against me," the New Sunday Times quoted him as saying. "I can’t understand them. I’m glad that Chirac at least understands. I would like to thank him publicly."

I hope that certain EU countries take note of this statement, and realise that at best this suggests they're sending out mixed messages as regards anti-semitism, to the likes of Mahathir.

#5 Well, we KNOW who our enemies are. As long as Chiraq is in power in France, there is not a snowball's chance in hell of relations improving. France is our enemy, not a shootin' enemy, but still an enemy. And Madeline Half-bright is an apologist for this sicko. If the EU wants to carry Chiraq as an albatross hanging on their necks, its their game.

#7 I'm just waiting for France to declare all of Europe as it territory and haave the economy collapse there. Then we can ban Europeans from Immigrating here because of economic troubles.

" What? The Euro collapsed and is now worthless? Well boo-freagin-hoo. "

#8 I’m glad that Chirac at least understands. I would like to thank him publicly." Mahathir

I'm guessing that even though ya'd think that Chirac would be horrified by this, he's probably pleased as punch with it. It probably opens doors and lays red carpets for his type of business associates and patrons.

#9 Chirac, backed by Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis, stopped the EU from ending a summit Friday with a harshly worded statement deploring Mahathir’s speech.

So Aris, where's the outrage, or do you think your Prime Minister did the right thing?
