Leftists sob over planned "Tel Aviv beach" in Paris

For a special event in Paris, there's going to be a makeshift beach set up alluding to Tel Aviv's shoreline. Predictably, this has some extreme Euro-leftists enraged:
Controversy is growing in France following the Paris town council’s decision for Tel Aviv be one of the cities honored in the Paris-Beaches summer event organized every year by the municipality.

[...] But across social media, and even among local politicians, the decision has caused an outcry. Danielle Simonnet, a left-wing lawmaker, called for the day devoted to Tel Aviv to be canceled.

In an interview on French Inter radio on Monday, Simonnet instead called for turning the day into “a peace protest, in support of fraternity, in support of the fight against all forms of racism and anti-Semitism, and to back recognition of the Palestinian state.”

“Just one year after the massacres over the Gaza Strip by the Israeli state and army, the City of Paris dares to organize in the frame of its cultural partnerships with the big cities of the world a day honoring Tel Aviv,” she wrote in a letter of protest.

Simonnet, who for the last seven years has represented the French capital’s 20th district – which has a large Arab population – said the day-long festival “sends a very bad message.”

She also said, “For the Israeli government, this is a nice bit of PR that Paris is serving up on a plate.”

The National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, on Sunday condemned Simonnet for her calls to cancel the event and said the city’s mayor should not yield to her pressure.

The pro-Palestinian group CAPJPO- Europalestine has called for protests of the event if it is not canceled.

BNVCA, an anti-Semitism watchdog, said it has asked the Paris police commissioner to bolster security during the festival day devoted to Tel Aviv out of fear of anti-Semitic attacks.
Thanks to that Simmonet, the danger is even more probable that there'll be trouble coming. It's clear she's among the people who actually want there to be a disaster in the making.

Interestingly, a deputy mayor defended the plans, but did it from a dhimmi's viewpoint:
Bruno Julliard the first deputy mayor of Paris, said on Sunday: “We refuse any parallels between the brutal colonization policy of Israel and the city of Tel Aviv, which is a progressive city and a symbol of tolerance.

“We will not let an entire population be punished for its government’s colonialist policy,” he added.
So that's why he's defending this? Ridiculous. His inference that Israel's government is "colonialist" is hostile too. Fortunately, he's been rebutted:
French lawmaker Eric Ciotti, who represents the Alpes-Maritimes region in southeastern France for the Les Républicains party, said regarding the reaction to the beach event, “Let me be very clear about this—the overtones are obviously anti-Semitic,” Europe 1 radio reported.

Ciotti also criticized Bruno Julliard, a top official in the Paris mayor’s office, who in an attempt to defend the event said that people should distinguish between “the brutal politics of the Israeli government and Tel Aviv, a progressive city.”

“These attacks on Israel are unjust and undignified. Israel is a democracy, we should be supporting them,” Ciotti said, France 24 reported.
He gets it right. Julliard should apologize.
