Air France Employees Performed Quenelle Salute

Three Air France union officials “joyfully” performed the Quenelle reverse Nazi salute at a rally last November but not reported until this week by the French Liberation newspaper.

Air France management issued a statement condemning the salute, according to the European Jewish Press, which reported they were “extremely shocked” and promise ”to take appropriate actions,” whatever that means.

The quenelle was popularized by French anti-Semitic comedian, so he calls himself, Dieudonne.

David Ricatte, secretary and spokesman of the CGT-Air France Communist union, defended his performing the salute and claimed it has no racial or religious significance. He argued that it was a fashionable anti-establishment sign until it was publicized in December as anti-Semitic

“However, earlier in January, Ricatte posted on his personal Twitter account a dubbed version of the scene of Adolf Hitler in ‘Downfall’ in which Hitler is a parodied version of French Interior Minister Manuel Valls condemning the quenelle,” EJP reported.

    This is getting scary.

  2. Aldo Mimoun says:

    Quenelle or Nazi salute it's all the same. We must take these obscene gestures to their face value. They are antisemitic and must not be allowed to continue.

  3. Trish Longwell says:

    There are more than three on that picture performing the quenelle!

  4. I would like to be informed by Air France what ”appropriate actions"
    they took. Until I hear from them, I'll book elsewhere.

  5. James Johnston Ferguson says:

    Bloody Disgrace ! this Nazi salute needs sorting out !

  6. Les Le Gear says:

    They reflect anti-Semitic feelings of most frenchmen. These creeps are descendents of the WWII french who joyfully aided the nazi's in sending Jews to their deaths.
