Un nouveau 'Juste Parmi les Nations' or a new 'Righteous Among the Nations, the Righteous Gentile'?

Il n'est pas Oskar Schindler.  Il est simplement un jeune Malien et Musulman pratiquant sa foie.  Mais il sauvait ses clients Jwifs a Hyper Cacher.

For his heroic, humanitarian act, his compassion, he has become famous all over the world.  At his own risk, he saved his customers, 7 to 15 of them, including a baby. 

Lassana Bathily's story is in this eBook, written with the assistance of Danielo Laferriere.

Book Review:

I am only Lassana Bathily! A simple Hyper Cacher Supermarket worker who happened to help and save others!  Yes, a Muslim can engage in acts of kindness, compassion, and humanitarian acts.  Jews, Muslims, Christians, Catholics or whatever else, we are on the same boat.  We have to work together to face the crisis of our time. 

In this eBook, I want to thank everybody –from my colleagues who had opened their arms to welcome me, the people of France, both the Jewish and Muslim communities, all the people of faith, my parents in Mali, my religious teachers and school instructors to my supporters on Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the world- for all their kind messages for what is now known as my 'heroic act of kindness and compassion.' 

I did not know anything else to do other than to give SHELTER in this cold storage or freezer to scared customers running down to the basement where I was working.  After hearing the booming noise above and seeing the clients running down, I knew something bad was going to happen.  I had to offer SHELTER at my own risk.  The content of this eBook tells you a little bit about myself, my humble origins, and my philosophy on mutual aid and love on this earth. 

Disons ‘non’ ȧ l’antisémitisme, ȧ la terreur causée par les extremistes et les terroristes.  Rien ne justifie les attaques ȧ caractère racial ou ethnique.  Après tout, on est tous dans la même situation. Il nous faut utiliser l’aide mutuelle pour faire face ȧ notre crise actuelle.

Despite DSK's sordid affaire, there is a renewed interest in learning French. After all, French is a very important language. After English and German, French is the most used language of the world.

French is a Romance language spoken mainly in France but also in several other countries in Europe, Africa, all across the Caribbean region, and many parts of Canada. It descends from Latin, which it replaced in international communications from the 17th century until World War II, when English took over this role.

Today, French is spoken by 90 million people as their first language and is an official language in 29 countries. It is the third most spoken language in the European Union (EU), following English and German.

French is also an official language of all United Nations agencies and a large number of international organisations.

Why Do You Have To Learn French?

French plays an important role in diplomacy, journalism, law and education.

It is the international language of cuisine, fashion, theatre, visual arts, architecture and dance.

It is the third most commonly used language on the Internet.

Learning French can help you to learn other languages too, especially other Latin languages (Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, and Haitian Creole).

French is the language of Love! So here we go again. DSK possesses one of the most beautiful languages. He did not want to use it to meet his needs. Despite his actions, French will remain the language of love!

While men shake hands, women tend to kiss each other in French-speaking countries.  Yes, people gently kiss each other on the cheek or shake hands when they meet.  As they leave, people also kiss or give a handshake.  Le bisou usually starts on the right cheek.  The number of kisses may vary depending on your relationship and the warmth of your encounter.  In French-speaking countries, the space between the speakers is also shorter.  That is very different in English-speaking countries.
