French official sacked for Israeli diatribe

Bruno Guigue wrote in an online column this month that Israel was the only regime that allows "snipers shoot down little girls outside their school gates."

Guigue, author of several books on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, also wrote of the "Israeli jails where -- thanks to religious law -- they stop torturing on the Sabbath."

Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie dismissed Guigue, deputy prefect of the southwestern town of Saintes, after learning of the column on Wednesday.
