Israelis not welcome at the Louvre?

The Louvre in Paris has been reported to French police after a group booking by Israeli art students was refused.

Tel Aviv University art professor Sefy Hendler, said he had emailed the historic museum to make a group booking for 12 of his students visiting Paris last month. After a brief exchange his request was turned down and he was told that no tickets were available.

Mr Hendler contacted the Sainte-Chapelle, the 13th-century church that contains what is said to be Christ’s crown of thorns and received the same rejection.

Surprised by the “bizarre” replies, he immediately sent fictitious queries to the two institutions. These were on behalf of the Abu Dhabi Art History College and the Florence Art Institute. These bookings from non-Jewish groups were processed without difficulty.

      Of course, that’s why they are french

      • The French they are a funny race,
        They fight with their feet and **** with their face

    • Clausewitz

      If you read up on the Dreyfus affair, the biggest strike against the defendant was that he was a Jew.

    The last time I saw Paris. . . was 1989.

    They don’t want Jews in the Louvre it will incite the mussies and they may notice the art and set about burning it down.

      It appears to be only a matter of time anyway.

    If this is true, it is outrageous
    The highest levels of government
    And the press should be informed
    There are greasy Islamic racist fucks
    Working at low levels in all our countries and institutions
    And these racist hate mongers are in positions
    To make these decisions
    I hope the Israelis who tried to get
    Reservations will Perdue this complaint at the
    Highest levels
    There is so much crime from gypsy gangs
    In Paris, the Louvre was closed a couple years
    Ago to everyone because of security
    Now open again, the Romanian,Bulgarian and other
    Free to immigrate gypsy gangs
    still hang around terrorizing tourists on the street and subways

  • One would think they had kindred spirits in the Israelis, given the nature of Islamofascists and everything.

    I guess not.
