Gallia Watch: ‘The French Demonstrator’

According to Le Parisien, the man in this photo, known as “The French Demonstrator,” has become the icon of the pro-Palestinian demonstration on July 19.

Strange, since he doesn’t look like a typical pro-Palestinian demonstrator, but his stance, his dancer’s strength and agility, his fearless readiness to attack (the police?), his haughtiness, similar to male models of haute couture, give him the look of a Hollywood bad guy…

It would funny it wasn’t so serious. People are photoshopping the pic (see examples at the link).

Same old story: The “iconic pro-Palestinian” must, above all, look like a European, and not a Muslim.

More coverage and pix at the Gallia Watch blog of the various riots, of which I am losing track.
