worldleaks Parker apologizes

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is sorry for a photograph that shows him making the same gesture with anti-Semitic connotations also made by French soccer star Nicolas Anelka this weekend.

It shows Parker and a French comedian making a gesture known in France as a “quenelle,” which critics describe as inverted Nazi salute. Parker said Monday in a statement issued by the Spurs that the photograph was taken three years ago.

Parker, who is French, said he didn’t know at the time that “it could be in any way offensive or harmful.” He said he thought it was part of a comedy act.

The photo came out after Anelka made the same gesture celebrating a goal in an English Premier League game Saturday, making an outcry in France.
