Retour sur un mini scandale.
Ken Livingstone a comparé un journaliste Juif à "un gardien de camp de concentration".
Devant l'ampleur du scandale, il a été sommé de s'excuser par Tony Blair. Il a refusé et publie sur le site de la Mairie ce communiqué (extrait)
The Mayor said:
‘I have been deeply affected by the concern of Jewish people in particular that my comments downplayed the horror and magnitude of the holocaust. I wish to say to those Londoners that my words were not intended to cause such offence and that my view remains that the holocaust against the Jews is the greatest racial crime of the 20th century.’
‘A week ago I said it was not my intention to apologise to the Daily Mail group journalist or his employers. Upon a further week of reflection in which I have read everything written in the press about this controversy and after considerable debate with many Londoners I have decided to stand by that position. There will therefore be no apology or expression of regret to the Daily Mail group.’
Est-il antisémite selon vous ? Est-il pardonnable ?
