Que tes ennemis expirantsSuccint translation of the French anthem: In death your enemies see your triumph and our glory!
Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire !
Why Le Marseilleise? Because Haifa University's Law School decided that the Israeli anthem is politically incorrect, talking as it does of the hopes of the Jewish people to be a free nation in its own land. The sensitive souls say it offends the non-Jewish legal and illegal inhabitants of this land. It is interesting that no one seems to be offended by the ferocious desires of revenge of the French. I think that the virus of PC-ness originates in America and was transmitted to Israeli legal scholars in Haifa through MacDonald hamburgers. May be it not exactly so but readers will understand why imperialist Coca Cola and MacDonald are disliked in France.
