Cheering for the opposing team in France is dangerous...

Especially if you are Jewish. Several not too brilliant Israelis, decided to cheer on their team in a soccer match in Paris. The fact that their team, Hapoel Tel Aviv beat the French PSG in the UEFA cup match didn't help things. One of the Israelis was chased by 100 PSG fans until a plain clothed policeman opened up some tear gas. The Policeman was then attacked himself and knocked to the ground. After yelling that he was police, he fired and killed one PSG fan and injured another.I personally applaud his act of bravery and unfortunately he is custody pending an investigation.

I'm still waiting from the mass exodus from France.

Mind-boggling. Unfortunately, not surprising.
