  1. Amazing – How ungrateful the French are. We bail them out and liberated their country twice in 2 world wars and this is the thanks we get. My Father fought in WW 1 in Bordeaux, France. Their is no other worse country and so anti Semitic on the face of this earth as France is.

  2. France is a morally bankrupt country, horrified by the slightest criticism and yet totally unprincipled. The revolution’s founding mottos “Liberté, Égalité et Fraterité” have never been realised. I happen to be a French citizen but prefer to live in another country. The French have no understanding of gratitude. Not surprising considering half the population collaborated with the Nazis y”s during WWII.

  3. The French government is the most pro-Jewish and most supportive of Israel of any on the continent of Europe today. The formal recognition means little.
