France's Expulsion Of The Roma, AKA Gypsies

France's President Nicolas Sarkozy is giving orders that Gypsies, or the Roma, as they prefer to be called, should have their Gypsy camps destroyed, and be deported back to Romania. The command is already being followed. Several Gypsy encampments have been demolished, and Gypsies are already being deported from France.

This is not a matter of illegal immigration, although this is the excuse President Nicolas Sarkozy is giving to the world. France's expulsion of the Roma is a matter of ethnic racism, and demonstrates an extreme disliking of the Roma. This is far too similar to the order given by Hitler to his German Nazi henchmen; the Nazis murdered a vast majority of Gypsies living in Europe.

I can't help but feel compassion for Gypsies because, like Jews, they have had a history of being misunderstood and hated. I find these racist acts by Sarkozy to be unethical, immoral, and uncivil. I guess the French are not quite as sophisticated as all of the hype would indicate.
