The French transport company RATP has rejected adverts for a concert held by a group of singing priests that was intended to raise funds for persecuted Christians in the Middle East. The exact phrase the company found objectionable was "au bénéfice des chrétiens d'Orient" (for the benefit of Christians in the Middle East). It said it it had an obligation to preserve the "principle of public service neutrality" in "the contest of an armed conflict abroad". Instead, it offered to run an altered version of this advert that removed the reference to Christians. Despite this, the company has in the past run adverts that refer to, for example, halal meat.

In response, a Monsignor of the Catholic Church has said that he "understands how the Holocaust came to be". I thought this might be a reference to one of the directors of RATP, Gérard Unger, a member of the Socialist Party and various Jewish organisations CRIF (Representative Council of Jews in France) and LICRA (International League against Racism and Antisemitism). But, no. It seems he was referring only to the fact that a genocide is being simply ignored by those who have the power to prevent it.

  1. It doesnt matter which westrrn country - the official theme adopted by all governments is ANTI-WHITE. The central element of European civilisation is white people, when white people arent being attacked directly the cultural and religious institutions associated with white people are attacked. Either way the intended target is white people.
