Antisemitic book is best-seller in France

An antisemitic book by French "intellectual" and "philosopher" Alain Soral is a best-seller in France and is being sold in many reputable bookshops (some owned by Jews) in France, in Switzerland and in Belgium. Soral shares Gilad Atzmon's ("a very brave man") fulsome views on Zionism and the Jews.

FNAC (an international entertainment retail chain offering cultural and electronic products founded in 1954 and the largest retailer of its kind in France) indicates on its website that there are "[...] those who resist and save the honour of their generation. We bet Alain Soral will be one of them."  Can one be more cynical than this?

Below the translation of a short passage in the book (p. 134):

"Under the control of Trotskyists in Europe they have rallied [global liberalism] under the name of 'libertarian liberalism' in Europe and 'neocons' in the United States.  They are a bunch of social-traitors whose names bring to mind straightaway those on the Schindler's List."

Interestingly, the National Library of France tags the book under the following subjects: "Hegemony, World, Western Civilization, Economics, History" but not a word about "Jews", the main topic of the book.

"Accusations of anti-Semitism

In a report on the television programme Complément d'enquête (in its episode devoted to the controversial French humorist Dieudonné M'bala M'bala), broadcast on the French television channel France 2 on 20 September 2004, Alain Soral said:
When you're talking with a Frenchman who is a Zionist Jew, and you start to say, well maybe there are problems coming from your side, maybe you might have made a few mistakes, it's not always the fault of other people if no-one can stand you wherever you go… because that's basically their general history, you see… for 2,500 years, every time they settled somewhere, after about fifty years or so, they get kicked. You'd think that's strange! It's as though everyone is wrong except them. And the guy will start shouting, yelling, going mad… you won't be able to carry on with the conversation. Which, to sum it all up, tells you that there's a psychopathology with Zionism Judaism, something that verges on mental illness…[15]
These comments sparked much controversy and Soral estranged himself from his show-bizz friends like Thierry Ardisson, a French TV host and producer, though they knew each other for more than 25 years.[16] Anti-Semitism is the subject of Soral's latest book: CHUTe ! Éloge de la disgrâce. Soral defended himself some days later on the website, claiming that his words had been taken out of context.
Following this programme, on 29 September 2004, Soral and several others were the victims of an attack by about twenty people wielding baseball bats, while he was signing copies of his book Misères du désir in a book shop called Au Pays de Cocagne in Paris's IIIe arrondissement. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the police investigation has found no leads so far[citation needed]. Soral himself believes the act to have been the work of an extremist Jewish group such as the Betar or the Jewish Defense League.[17]
In a 2005 interview given to the magazine VSD, Soral announced his intellectual support for the equally controversial Dieudonné M'bala M'bala, with whom he worked on the Euro-Palestine list for the European elections of 2004, before his withdrawal led Dieudonné to do likewise. During the France 2 programme mentioned above, Dieudonné is visible in the background, listening to Soral."
