Fallafel in the Jewish quarter.


This afternoon we went to Marais and had a fallafel at "L'as du Fallafel", its a nice area in Paris where the Gay and Jewish community live side by side in perfect harmony.
In 1982 terrorists threw a hand grenade into the Goldberg resturant in Marais and then went down Rue des Rosiers shooting.
6 where killed and 22 seriously wounded.
The special French antiterrorist unit investigated and a few weeks later they found explosives and guns in an appartement in Vincennes...
Ready to know who the appartement belonged to?
The Irish nationalists.
Nooo, there is absolutely nothing strange with that. Irish nationalists hate Jews. I know who you had in mind but no, no, no, you're being simple minded!
Well, later on it emerged that the explosives found in the appartement were actually put there by the police itself...
They never found the real culpable, a tricky case...
The fallafel was very tasty and the home-made lemonade too.

I will miss you so much, I know that Israel is not at the end of the world, but maybe that I am scared that I will loose your friendship!
