What are you building Obelix?
It's a Capital 'A' monument...
to the Arrogance of the French Parliament.

Asterix and Obelix -- building a monument to the French Parliament's arrogance
Thanks to Hinkelstein

Janek Jonas

Where are Asterix and Obelix when we really need them?

The French Parliament voted yesterday to make it a crime [punishable by one year in prison and a fine of up to 45,000 euros (57,000 dollars] to deny the so-called Armenian genocide, in speech or print.

So... before the language-gendarmes start capping free speech and burning books in your locale, you may want to obtain copies of any or all of the following:

1) Death and Exile: The Ethnic Cleansing of Ottoman Muslims,
1821-1922

by Justin McCarthy

Amazon.com (North America)
Waterstones (UK)

2) History of the Ottoman Empire and Modern Turkey
(Volume II -- 1808 and 1975)
by Stanford J. Shaw

3) A Myth of Terror -- Armenian Extremism
by Erich Feigl
