These days, there is no way in hell that I would spend one cent of my money in France. Why? This is why. They are so anti-Jewish and anti-Israel that not only would I not feel safe there, but I wouldn't suppport a government that breeds hatred. Look, I haven't forgotten the Vichy government, the collaboration with the Nazis, and the way the Algerian citizens of France have created even more hatred of the Jews. I remember when Jo Goldenbergs was bombed in Paris. I know that France has always had a tenuous relationship with it's Jewish citizens. It has the largest Jewish population in Europe, you know. But this is what France supports:
Now I'm poor and every penny of my money is spent in a manner that I feel is righteous. I won't buy from China because they appear, at least to me, to be heartless in their human rights and in the way they ship dangerous and inferior goods in their own country and around the world. I just can't support that. I won't ever, as long as I live, buy anything German. Now I don't blame the current German population for the horrors of the past, but I'm not stupid enough to believe that Germany, Austria and Poland are now friends of the Jews. They're not, and my money isn't going to them. I won't buy a German car, or a German stereo component, or anything else that Germany ships to the USA. I just will not spend MY money on things that come from countries that have gone out of their way to make enemies of my people. Ditto for Spain. The most anti-semetic country in Europe, according to some people.
I don't think every person should do as I do, just as I don't think every person will think as I think, but I'm telling you that for me, putting MY money into these countries is contrary to everything I believe is morally right. And I won't do it.
And Great Britian. You're next on my list. I suggest you clean up your act.
