Remember that famous headline on 9-12-01 in the French newspaper Le Monde: “We Are All Americans”? Apparently the text below wasn’t as pro-American as you might think. (See this article by Fouad Ajami, for instance.) I’ve been searching without success for a full translation of that front-page editorial, written by Le Monde publisher Jean-Marie Colombani. A few snippets seem to be available, but nothing more. If anybody knows where I might read an English-language version of the whole piece, please email me here.
