Algiers: a city where France is the promised land - and still the enemy

Jan 26, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Guardian

Andrew Hussey believes the only way to makes sense of the problems Algeria faces today is to look back into its colonial history.

Still blaming the white man? That is getting a bit old. It is time for these beggars to take responsibility for their lack of vision and ambition.

Thanks Faith...that was nice of you to bring out this article... It really brought out the essence of Algiers and Algeria... It felt like for a moment strolling the steet of aLGIERS...
Algerians don't blame the white man... they usually are blamed by the white man...lol
They already took their responsibilities... but their vision is blurred momentarly... soon they will see the world as it is ...chaotic..

Beggars?

Well, Algeria has no debt and a huge reserve!

French president Hollande went to Algeria to beg for financial support for his war in Mali.

France is also begging Algeria to lower its gaz and oil prices.

So, who's the beggar now?

I haven't seen Algeria beg for anything!! I also see less people begging on the streets of Algiers than in London, New York and Paris...

There are 6 million Algerian beggars in France. 6 million blood sucking beggars.

Algiers was built by the French, remember that when you admire the old buildings.

What about the 132 years of colonisation and exploitation and blood sucking!!!
the old buildings are not a big deal comparing what they've done to the algerian people.

You do not need to answer these shills they are here to interrupt.... but the article that Faith brought up is really interresting....What is interresting is how Mr. Hussey look at the history of colonialism with a fresh approach.... past historians just left us a sour taste in our mouth and a feeling of incomplete or distorted stories...

Look Cartooni... stop being a Drama Queen... Lena wanted to date some North African guys... It's OK to date North Africans... they have a reputation to be fierce and hot... The problem is when they saw her picture... a lot of them went nut and wanted to date her... I just put a small add in an Algerian forum with her pic ... and they came like ants at her site... and all came at the same time and started asking her questions ... what's your Greek name? How much money in your account you have now right now? Will you marry me... I am cute and I need a green card asap... and this froze her computer... So now I don't know what Lena is going to do. Like I know her she is very nice and can't turn back all these handsome Algerians... She might date one every two days to give a chance to all this crowd... Lena have a big heart and can accomodate all these pretendants.lol,

Alexandre is just one of these racist Islamophobes who despise Muslim countries. He probably has never been to Algeria and just regurgitates racist slogans learnt from the National Front.
These morons hate Algeria because it has inflicted upon them a huge defeat and dented their pride as a nation.
The French will never accept to have lost the Algerian war, and since, they despise Algeria and Algerians, even it they need Algerian workforce.

Agree. I come from South East Europe and we were occupied by Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years, today we don't cry wolf daily blaming Turks for that. These beggars need to wake up and start working. Arabs and Africans are no different. I say nuke them and case closed.
