As Moroccan, I'd rather not comment on Algeria and even less on their government... but so what, here we go: France and Algeria have a very difficult relationship because of colonialism and the ensuing war; tensions that seem to flare up again every now and then. Most recently, there was a discussion in France on the merits of colonialism, and this must have upset a lot of Algerians; very understandably may I add. I'd guess that this remark by M. Abbas was just a clumsy stupid way for them (or just him personally?) to retaliate. If at all, it was much more directed against France and Sarkozy in particular, than against Jews. That's absolutely not an excuse for antisemitism, but hopefully it puts things back into the right perspective. Okay, enough advocatus diaboli for now.
