The 74 year old Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar, a wealthy man and former chairman of Egypt’s Bank of Alexandria, was arrested on May 31 under sexual assault charges involving a New York hotel maid. The charges and circumstances are practically identical to the 62 year old Dominique Strauss-Kahn alleged offences. DSK was arrested in New York on May 14 for sexually assaulting a New York Hotel maid, leading to his resignation from the head of the International Monetary Fund and ending his chances to become France’s president next year against Nicolas Sarkozy.

Now that I’ve dispensed with the obvious and obnoxious teaser headline, let’s drop the towel and expose Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s history of arrogant abuse. The truth is, the grandee of the IMF has molested Africans for years.
On Wednesday, the New York Times ran five – count’em, FIVE – stories on Strauss-Kahn, Director-General of the International Monetary Fund. According to the Paper of Record, the charges against “DSK,” as he’s known in France, are in “contradiction” to his “charm” and “accomplishments” at the IMF.

Le Monde confirmed in a poll conducted by CSA that for 57% of the French population, Strauss-Kahn is the victim of a plot. Reviewing the French Press reveals that most of the mass media in France published articles of main political figures, including political rivals, stating that they do not believe the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn are genuine. In the meantime the career of the Chief of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and potential future French President, who was favourable to the people instead of global corporations, is over. Unless somehow the belief of his innocence could be turned to his advantage, even if found guilty by forged evidence. A crucial mistake perhaps, the French simply don’t think like Americans, anything is possible. Here is a review of the most substantial articles in the French Press.
