Netanyahu Not Welcome
There is a report circulating that Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked by French Prime Minister Francois Hollande not to attend the anti-terror rally in Paris. When Netanyahu announced that he would attend, Hollande invited Palestinian leader Abbas to attend. Abbas has a long history of encouraging terror attacks against Israel and Zionist targets. At least five Jews were murdered in the series of attacks around Paris in recent days. Jewish casualties make up the largest single identifiable group among the targeted. There are around half a million Jews in France, and the nearly third of victims killed being Jews far outweighs the less than one percent of Jews in France's overall population. As the leader of the Jewish State, and as an ardent warrior against terror, it was proper for Netanyahu to attend. It mocks Jewish victims of terror that Abbas was included.
