Symbolic Votes and Anti-Semitic Incitement

Yesterday the French parliament voted to recognize the nonexistent state of Palestine in a nonbinding move, in keeping with France’s firm commitment to base its foreign policy on delusions, appeasement, and surrender at the first sign of trouble. My initial instinct was to dismiss it, both because of France’s general irrelevance to the defense of the free world and because of its symbolic nature. But I was wrong to do so. In fact, the symbolic nature of France’s action is precisely what makes it so deadly, so dangerous, and so utterly indefensible.

    I’d like to have a map of the West Bank and Gaza with the cursive writing in French that says: “this is still not a country”

    I would title it: “the treachery of statecraft”!

    Its an act of evil that will come back to haunt the French Government. Its appeasement to the worst elements.

    Well this is France. Yes, the same France that on its own rounded up French Jews and stole their property prior to any request from the Nazis. Of course when the Nazis were defeated, every Frenchman claimed to have been part of the Resistance and innocent of those horrible crimes committed by the Nazis. It was only a French diplomat sever years ago who referred to Israel as that “shitty little country” along with comments about Jews.
