  1. Time will tell, what the outcome of the election will be.
    Do hope that achenu that live in France will have an easier time with their Muslim neighbors.

  2. of course he said that. he was speaking to the prime minister of Israel!
    what do you think he would have said if he was speaking to hamas?

  3. France has always been notorious for their anti-semetic views. Many times a diplomat will “claim” his “support” for Israel and not follow-up, case in point, Victor Yuschencko in Ukraine. Opportunistic for the moment only. There will be no change in France’s attitude towards Israel at all.
