      French Anti-Semitic Comedian Says He Was Threatened


      The Paris prosecutor’s office said Thursday it is investigating threats against French comedian Dieudonne, the man who invented the “reverse Nazi salute” that has caused great controversy over the past several days.

      Dieudonne, who has made anti-Semitic comments in the past, claimed he received four phone calls this week threatening him and the Theatre de la Main d’Or, where he often appears, prosecutors said.

      The comedian is being investigated for an alleged anti-Semitic slur during a recent show directed at a Jewish journalist.
