1. The US contributed to the liberation of France because the threat concerned the US too, and its military doctrine is to fight American wars abroad. 2. Recent expulsions of Gypsies is indeed despicable symptom of this right-wing gov't (you can join the immense rally against expulsions this week), but I'm sorry, it's identical to the official and practiced policy of the US regarding the illegal immigration. 3) Judging by sources, the allegation of "anti-semitism" behind this case (and many other) seems to be non-existent, although media is far from reliable source of particular circumstances. The person in question is a teacher of history, and there's a big difference between teaching Holocaust in the context of history and teaching history in the context of the Holocaust. The inspectors who compiled the report are monitored far more strictly than the teachers. By contrast, the study/teaching of Holocaust in France is, perhaps even more than in the US, subjected to the liberties taken by apologetic teachers in the vacuum of contextual, critical, scientific regard to this chapter of history. Of course, nothing obviates the reality of anti-Semitic acts in France (or the US, for that matter). Not even the fact that the very often victims of it are French Muslims.
