using a picture of a Roma child waving a toy gun after gypsy groups

today that the front-page picture of the youngster was 'justified' and
highlighted growing 'crime tourism' in Switzerland

  • That's just one more hype in the german leftist's media about someone telling the truth. It's obvious that all those who shout "Nazi, Holocaust" now do not argue in any way with the content of the article, the facts that are mostly taken from police reports. Even the german leftist's magazin "Der Spiegel" wrote some months ago, that there is a problem with gipsies in Germany and other EU-countries. But the german media always blame the Germans ("Nazi genes", no cult More..

  • Fun facts - it wasn't the gypsies that complained.

    The first people were other journalist filing lawsuits against "Die Weltwoche"

    The title is misleading... the guy was even Austrain that filed the lawsuit.

    • @NakedPray it's mainly the EU which is to blame for the problem most western European countries are having with the Roma and criminals from eastern European countries.

    • @NakedPray Western European countries are, UK, France, Germany etc. Because of EU rules we are forced to open our borders to people from eastern Europe.
