French government has to cut out the colonial-like stance against Jerusalem

Gol Kalev says French president Emmanuel Macron has to stop with the incredibly stupid act of being antagonistic towards Israel's sovereignty in Jerusalem:
Visiting Jerusaelm for the World Holocaust form last week, French President Emmanuel Macron used the site of a holy church to yell at the Israeli Police who were protecting him.

This is just another episode of French antagonism to Israel’s presence in Jerusalem. In 2016, France supported a ludicrous UNESCO resolution that implied Jerusalem has no Jewish or Christian historical connection. The French prime minister at the time, Manuel Valls, subsequently expressed regret for his country’s action, but it did not stop France from doing it again: A year later, it abstained on a similar UNESCO resolution.

The following year, when President Trump announced that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move its embassy, France was at the forefront of the passionate and angry European opposition— itself more aggressive than the Palestinian and Arab reactions. Macron repeatedly claimed that the recognition would have negative security repercussions well beyond Jerusalem, stating that "the status of Jerusalem is a question of international security which concerns the entire international community."

This European position is based on a 1949 U.N. resolution that designated Jerusalem and Bethlehem as a "corpus separatum" to be placed under an international legal regime — essentially a European colony.

Macron did not stop there, and tried to link the May 2018 Hamas-led "Nakba day" Gaza riots to the opening of the new U.S. embassy: "Experience shows that whether you like it or not, things like that provoke violence in response...This leads to people dying." He said.

French disruptive meddling in the Middle East is not new. In 1920, French actions triggered the first shots in what became the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. France invaded Syria in order to dethrone the pro-Zionist Arab Emir Faisal and to instill a French regime instead (nominally posing as a League of Nation mandate). While Jews attempted to stay neutral in the French-Arab conflict, local Arab commanders suspected French soldiers were hiding in the Jewish village of Tel-Chai and a deadly battle ensued.
Historically speaking, of course it was jaw-droppingly poor of France to get rid of that particular emir, if only because they weren't doing it to get rid of Islam's influence. So when they left Syria proper, they also enabled the truly rotten apples to take over.

As for the main subject at hand, the guy's correct; this form of hostility has to cease, as it's only causing embarrassment, and taking away attention from more challenging issues.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
