    First World War was going on in the 1910′s….. no way this was then. The obvious prosperity and smiling marching soldiers survivors of WWI is evident. At least, my opinion.

    In 1910 streets were not so plenty of cars and vehicles. Those models of cars were popular in the 20s.

    This doesn’t look 1920s. It looks more like mid – late 1910s. People in the video are wearing mid 1910s fashion.

    Maybe they are not there because they were part of the 475,000 colonial French troops who fought for the French in World War I and died by the tens of thousands. The people in this clip might be speaking German if it weren’t for the great grandfathers of the North Africans and Muslims you apparently dislike so much.

    There was no “justification” for moorish invasion because it was not based on a humanist ideal, it was only about Islam supremacy instead of french who wanted to bring civilisation to the “savages”. You could also considerate that North Af’ muslims deserved what happened to them in XIXth century because they invaded North african christian people that they converted by force and annihilated their civilisation, like in Persia. Go ask Kabylians what they think about arabs in Algeria.

  23. 1400deadwood says:

    - if that’s the …
    – if that’s the case then there is even more ‘justification’ for the Moorish invasion of Spain and France since this brought science, medicine, and architectural advancement into those countries.

  24. SyndromeRDR says:

    “Algeria” was not …
    “Algeria” was not invaded but created by the french, they overstayed there after they ejected from the coast the turk ottomans who were there for centuries as invaders. The difference between french and ottomans is that french brought vaccination, education, technical progress. Without european colonisation of Africa, there would still be massive slavery of blacks by arab muslims and africans who would still be dying of disease with a huge child mortality.
