Not anti-Semitic? Anelka will miss five games after being banned by the FA

Flashpoint: Nicolas Anelka has been handed a five-match ban and fined £80,000 for this gesture 

So why did he do it then? If Nicolas Anelka’s quenelle gesture was so guileless and innocent, why did he introduce it to a goal celebration in front of a worldwide audience?

If there was no attempt to promote anti-Semitism, no tendency towards it on his part — and we must take him at his word on this — then there needs to be an explanation for his behaviour. And it had better be good.

Well, better than the FA’s mealy-mouthed statement, that banned Anelka for five games for, basically, nothing.
