But… C'est Injuste!

Go see Erik do what he does so well. A tease:

Let's see, what have we got here?…

"The Kidnappers of French Journalists Renew Their Blackmail…"
"Paris Tries to Isolate the Terrorists…"

Wow. "Odious blackmail"! "Terrorists"! Quite different from the bland and straightforward headlines when Americans and other nationalities are kidnapped, huh?

No rightfully angered locals here, no members of the "Iraqi rebellion", no "insurgents", no justification, no "executions", no "Ils l'ont bien mérité" (they deserved it, they had it coming)… Au contraire! Au contraire, as it turns out…

Take a look at Paris Tries to Isolate the Terrorists By Orchestrating Arab Disapproval:

"Maybe [Christian Chesnot and Georges Malbrunot] were kidnapped by mistake [wonders Malbrunot's editor.] Maybe the kidnappers didn't know they were journalists and French citizens."

It's only a matter of time before France overcomes enough bureaucratic inertia to make Erik illegal. Since "French" is apparently a race when you want it to be, he can probably already be fined for "race hate", Brigitte Bardot-style.
