the article does not say that Dieudonne is responsible for much of the Blacks hatred of Jews in France and indirectly responsible for encouraging the murder of a young Jewish man who was tortured to death.

MONTREAL – Have you heard the one about the Holocaust-obsessed Jewish intellectual who goes to a market in France and haggles over the price of potatoes? “With six million dead, surely you could give me a better price,” he complains.

Audiences packing a Montreal theatre this week for shows by the French comic Dieudonne have heard the joke targeting Bernard-Henri Levy, and according to press reports, they have been rolling in the aisles.

Dieudonne’s increasingly virulent attacks on Israel and Jewish lobby groups have made him something of a pariah in his native France. Former colleagues have accused him of anti-Semitism, and last March a French court convicted him of “incitement to racial hatred” for saying that his Jewish critics were “slave traders, who had converted to banking, show business and, today, terrorist action.” Mainstream venues have shunned him and he is reduced to performing in his own theatre.
