The 50-year-old was arrested in the French capital's Marais district, which has always been the traditional home of the city's Jewish community.

He is believed to have been drinking heavily in a local bar on Thursday evening when he launched the alleged attack.

Witnesses called police during the incident, which took place in front of dozens of astonished revellers in a busy covered terrace.

A police source said: 'We arrived extremely quickly and managed to break up the disturbance. The man involved was briefly arrested and then released pending charges for assault.

'Witnesses said he swore heavily, using anti-Jewish insults, before attacking a couple. Both have provided witness statements, as have a number of other people at the bar, including staff.'

The source confirmed that Galliano, who has been chief designer at Christian Dior since 1996, was the only person arrested in connection with the incident.

Dior, who was born in Gibraltar and then brought up in South London, is often seen in the bars and café of the Marais.

He is currently preparing the Dior autumn collection which will be shown for the first time at Paris Fashion Week, which starts on Monday.

Galliano, who regularly performs his trademark 'rock star' poses at the end of fashion shows, is one of the world's foremost celebrity designers.

Close personal friends include pop star Kylie Minogue, for whom he has designed clothes for tours. Madonna has also visited him regularly in Paris.

His 'set' in the French capital has also included supermodels like Kate Moss, Helena Christensen and Naomi Campbell.

They are always so enthused by his creations that, it has been claimed, they regularly waive their usual couture appearance fees to appear in his clothes.

Private clients for his hugely expensive clothes included the late Princess Diana, who also loved his work.

A friend of the designer in Paris said: 'Women love John because he has a very feminine side. Reports of this assault are so out of character. I've never seen him being violent towards anyone.'

Galliano produces work under his own label, as well as Dior's. He produces six couture and ready-to-wear collections a year.

He has appeared on the Independent newspaper's Pink List for being one of "the most influential gay people in Britain'.

A Paris police spokesman confirmed that Galliano was facing criminal charges and would appear in court on a date to be fixed.

    Incredible.



    Entire religions ,islam / shari'a, ( NOI , Sauds , et al , " black liberation threology " is built around the active actual real life genocide of all the jews ( SEMITES and so muslim arabs are also semitic AND if they are arab muslims they are simultaneously ANTI-semite by their own religion laws..and are thus ridiculously STUPID and ignorant ) as well as ANTI- kaffur ( non muslims ) as well as being ANTI-female, ANTI children ...SLAVE owners....... do we see any muslim leaders whose religion requires the murder or enslavement or punishment of every last jew/kaffur being thrown into jail to be prosecuted??????? islam hates more than one half the entire worlds population and so this kind of thing is so stupid.. my mother says it is likened to an old saying...the pot calling the kttle black ( in ancient days pots and kettles were heated over flames and were always blackened by the soot ) ..it is stupid and in this case criminaly evil...

    let's outlaw islam/shari'a first ..... and then worry over people who hate religions and theocracys ( islam is a theocracy which claims it is a religion )

    Islam worries about being outlawed so much it moves first to convince stupid ignorant people they must never be allowed to use their freedom of speech against the religion ...

    Islam worries about being outlawed so much it moves first to convince stupid ignorant people they must never be allowed to use their freedom of speech against the religion of islam.but whose only interest is in forcing the entire world to become enslaved/slaved/submitted to islam/sharia which is INTOLERANT, murderous, greedy ( Muhammed loved booty ) .and craves ownership status over this entre planet and ever human upon it... including their version of paradise in which men are so incredibly stupid...all they can do is to hope to own multiple virgin females to rape forever , along with children of either gender...

    READ the qur'an and hadith of Bukhari......

    It is NOT freedom of speech which should be prosecuted.....islam is a theocracy . THEOCRACY should be outlawed .

    it is theocracys which use taqiyya and violence and murder and theivery to steal everything and cause freedom to die painfully........... which should be outlawed forever once and for all time.


    God is not stupid and he created people with brains and the love of questioning.. of learning.... of honouring truth....
    and no religion is the truth or good ...

    only God is good and is true.

    Islam is nt God. Judaism is not God. NO religion is the God. NO books are god. NO rocks clad in silver collars are god. Etc etc.

    The everyday muslims are demanding shari'a/islam be imposed on the entire planet..... the UK is being ruined and murdered by islam. Let's out law any religions which support or espouse murder or enslavment or trickery to gain for itself and be done with it.

    WAKE UP HUMANS. Islam wants your freedom to die . Become educated. Read qur'an and hadith of Bukhari.. and see with your own eyes why this sort of arrest ids the most stupid.. most ridiculous . most evil.. most ignorant kind of arrest.

    OUTLAW islam and any other theocracy and then let's al grow up into mature beings capable of actually loving one another the right way.

    ................................

    All the heightened fighting in the middle east... is caused entirely by the slave owning Sauds/OPEC/UAE royals whom Obama bows before .. to prevent real life humans who despise shari'a/islam owning them,.enslaving them , using them for material gain ....

    WAKE UP. Our president bows before them. They drive cars plated in platinum.. they own solid gold uzis ..... and they claim it is Americas fault ( and any others who are freedom loving peoples,,, ) they hate us and use us all to commit their violent acts upon all other muslims and other peoples ... who do NOT want to bow before them any longer.

    These " royals " OWN us . Islam is a theocracy bent entirely upon world ownership by the royal tribal caliphate ... the SAUDS... the OPEC ... the UAE ...... and all those who bow before them and appease them..... and agree with them. Those OWN us .

    The war is clear,.

    it is freedom/love against slavery/jealousy and has always been since mankind began..

    Who takes anybody seriously when they are drunk?? However, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, one of Israel's leading experts on Biblical law wasn't drunk when he said: "Goyim non-Jews were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel. “Why are Gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an aristocrat and eat. That is why Gentiles were created. With Gentiles it will be like any person, they need to die but God will give them longevity..."

    Why does the good Rabbi get away with the slurs "gentiles" and "goyim"? I consider that a slur against non-jews.

    It is not extremist when jews do the same?

    Well, extremists are everywhere! They can be Muslims, Jews, and Christians (God Hates fags!)... You can't justify what Galliano said by quoting an insane Rabbi.

    And considering Christian Dior had seen his belowed sister sent to a concentration camp.. you can't really blame the company for firing him!

    Excuse me. I pointed out that Galliano was drunk and shouldn't be taken seriously. However, Rabbi Yosef was sober and is very serious. Why isn't the Rabbi being fired?

    I do believe a gentle girl, named Ayesha, whose own creepy violent greedy father ( abu Bakr ) sold her into sexual slavery/marriage to a violent greedy depraved evil murderous warlord " prophet" , had it recorded that her husband, who had been caught at adultery , was quite aggravated when he berated her when he became irritated that she was between him and his holy city and his prayers... and he likened her and all females to donkeys or dogs , unworthy and stupid... hmmmmm..... seems her husband was anti-female and anti-semite .. unless he wanted to use/rape them for sex ..which if she refused , se was subject to being beaten, deprived , or starved to her death literaly and cruelly .. or stoned or beheaded.... depending on the mood of her husband.... who was known to force her to commit adultery with a young man while her husband watched and laughed at her discomrfort.,..... a " prophet " known to suck on the tongues of baby boys .. a "prophet" known to force all males to be clothed in public while he himself was well known to have walked naked , dragging his garment behind him , wearing only a huge toothy smile toward another male known to be very handsome ... whose shock and dismay was evident according to hadith recording the events... a "prophet " who was known to condem...

    eh? I do believe his name was Muhammed.. the creator of islam/shari'a, the law of the hypocrite male, a semite himself who hated semites and anyone else who refused to obey his commands.

    ................................


    I cannot stand prophets who pretend to be good but whose actions and words prove they are evil incarnate.

    isaiah 45:7 .

    No prophet is God. No religion is God. No book is God . No cross is God. No rock wearing a molten silver collar is God. No kaa'ba is God. No imam is God. No rabbi is God.

    And God said ONLY God is good. Very simple. VERY simple . Men and prophets and religions and boks etc etc etc etc are not God at all..but men like to pretend they are good as God .. and all that happens is their lives prove they are not God... their followers are not God.. their idols are not God.. and so on.....

    Men love to pretend ( taqiyya ) .
