The recasted nazi salute is the new craze sweeping nations across the world.
Of course, to these people, the murder of children and the Holocaust is all "light-hearted", "anti-system" and a show of support for a "comedian" (Dieudonne) who has multiple convictions for anti-Jewish hate speech.
A man has been pictured performing the anti-Semitic 'salute' made famous by Nicolas Anelka in front of the Jewish school where three children were killed in a 2012 massacre (and look at his t-shirt).
Daily Mail: The photograph below shared on social media has helped to fuel anger over the 'quenelle', which was invented by an outspoken comedian accused of espousing extremist views.
The gesture, said to resemble a Nazi salute, was brought to international fame last week when Mr Anelka made it after scoring a goal for West Bromwich Albion.
The (London) Daily Mail: "Check YouTube for pictures of la quenelle at weddings and parties, by soldiers, policemen, on ski trips and, of course, at Auschwitz. In one reel, it is shown performed at the Holocaust memorials in Berlin and New York, on a deportation wagon in Drancy, outside synagogues in Paris, Bordeaux, Budapest and Barcelona, and on innumerable rues de la Juiverie. Quenelliers stand laughing while posing in the act outside the Creche Israelite de Paris or the Memorial des Camps de la Mort. So it is preposterous to believe Anelka did not know what he was doing, or the association."

Controversy: Nicolas Anelka made the gesture after scoring against West Ham United on Saturday
"NBA PLAYER TONY PARKER APOLOGIZES FOR NAZI-LIKE GESTURE – WHILE ENGLISH-BASED SOCCER STAR STOPS SHORT OF FULL APOLOGY," Tom Gross, Middle East Dispatch
(I write in some detail because of the disgraceful misreporting in some international media, including broadcasts on the BBC and reports in The Guardian, failing to explain who Dieudonne is and implying that Anelka is the innocent party. One paper that has reported on it accurately is the Daily Mail, and I include an article from the Daily Mail's sports pages at the end of this dispatch.)
San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker has apologized for using the "quenelle" Nazi-like gesture invented by the notorious anti-Semite and Holocaust denier, the French entertainer Dieudonne M'bala M'bala.
Parker said he will "never again repeat the gesture," and expressed his hope that the incident would "serve to educate others that we need to be more aware that things that may seem innocuous can actually have a history of hate and hurt" and incitement to kill.
Several prominent French public figures including soccer star Mamadou Sakho and TV journalist Yann Barthes have all been photographed making the gesture. Alain Sorel, an anti-Semitic filmmaker, was also seen posing at the Berlin Holocaust memorial, and in September, two French soldiers were punished for displaying the quenelle in front of a Paris synagogue they were supposed to be guarding.
Meanwhile, English-based French soccer star Nicolas Anelka has still not properly apologized for his use of the gesture after scoring a goal for English soccer club West Bromwich Albion earlier this week.
Jewish groups accused Anelka of "mainstreaming anti-Semitic hate" and criticized the West Brom coach and sections of the British media for defending Anelka.
The "quenelle" has been used by followers of Dieudonne in front of Nazi concentration camps, synagogues and Holocaust day memorials.
On Friday, French Interior Minister Manuel Valls, said that his ministry was looking for legal ways to ban Dieudonne's shows which are rife with encouragement to harm Jews and Holocaust survivors.
Dieudonne's film, "The Anti-Semite," was banned from the Cannes Film Festival last year. He has also openly supported former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Holocaust denial and said museums that educate about the Holocaust were "pornography."
Dieudonne also tells his audience that Jews spread the Aids virus in Africa, and the Jews made up the Holocaust.
Anelka is believed to be one of his followers. France's Minister for Sport, Valerie Fourneyron, said that, "Anelka's gesture is a shocking and disgusting provocation. Anti-Semitism or incitement to hatred has no place on the football field."
Dieudonne has defended the torture and killing of a young French Jew, Ilan Halimi, hunted down in Paris, and he has demanded Halimi's killers should be released from prison.
