I think not.

Anelka argued in his tweets that the gesture – in which he thrust his straightened right arm downwards while tapping his bicep with the other hand – was merely “anti-establishment”.

Former France international footballer Nicolas Anelka rubbished accusations on Sunday that a controversial ‘Nazi-style’ gesture he made after scoring a goal was ‘anti-Semitic or racist’. Anelka faces a possible ban for making the salute.

French footballer Nicolas Anelka on Sunday strongly defended a controversial gesture he made during a weekend match, saying “I am neither anti-Semite nor racist”, even as British football authorities mulled possible punishment.

The 34-year-old West Bromwich Albion striker and former member of France’s national team issued a series of tweets rejecting claims that the gesture he made Saturday was anti-Semitic or a thinly veiled Nazi-like salute, as many have interpreted.

His response came amid growing outrage online and internationally, and a risk that he could face match suspensions if England’s Football Association finds his act racially offensive.

  1. This is so completely revolting! What the hell are you thinking when you are posing in front of a building were children were being murdered for being Jewish!

    I reread the book by Denis Boyles ‘Vile France’ (Please do read the book if you haven’t done already) and here’s what it says on the rise of anti-Semitism in France:
    “The combination of rising tensions in the Middle-East, Islamification at home, traditional French anti-Semitism and the newly fashionable antiglobalization movement, with its pro-Palestinian assumptioms, makes it likely that such acts will only increase. In France, anti-Semites are like cockroaches in the cupboard. For every one you see, there are zillions more, just waiting for the lights to go out.”

      1. Yes, they are. He’s a Muslin (convert), and that’s all we need to know and act upon accordingly.

  2. Why was this mo fo not immediately fired? Aren’t there rules against tarnishing the image of the team or league? They should not need public outcry to ditch this scumbag for making the closet nazi salute during a game. His career should be over. Period.

    To not fire him is a direct endorsement of fascism.
