France: For film director Jews are responsible for Muslim crisis

Via Monde Juif and several Jewish blogs (comments and translation are ours):
French film director Philippe Lioret, echoing what a growing number of Europeans are being led to believe, floated the idea that Israeli Jews are responsible for Muslim fundamentalism and the current immigration crisis.

Interviewed by public radio channel France Inter he explained that for a while something has been preying on his mind - something that the media completely ignore.  "Where does the responsibility for the present-day crisis lies if you go back in time?", he asked.  "The Six-Day war for example. In 1967, the Israelis entered the West Bank and Gaza and the robbed the Palestinians."

This dispossession was the beginning of the terrible trauma on the Arab identity which is now bringing us this kind of Islamic fundamentalism, he added.

He also accused the West of always being responsible, that it is people who have got money who make decisions and that Nicholas Sarkozy had inflicted terrible harm. 

Typically when talking about the great Muslim identity trauma supposedly inflicted by the Jews, it never occurs to people like Philippe Lioret that after Europeans had exterminated six million Jews, including one and a half million children, not a single Jew, after the war, exacted revenge on a single European.  No bombs, no shootings, no beheading, no punch-ups, no brawls.  Jews didn't use the excuse of the terrible trauma they had suffered to inflict misery on Europeans - either innocent or not so innocent.  

But what's more.  Wikipedia reveals that Philippe Lioret had been harshly criticised by historians for comparing, in his film Welcome, the plight of illegal immigrants to the persecution and extermination of the Jews during the Holocaust.  Historian Henri Rousso spoke of ignorance and provocation.
