The French foreign minister has been mobbed by Palestinian protesters
A crowd of Palestinian protesters attacked the car of French Foreign Minister, Michele Alliot-Marie, with shoes and eggs as she toured through the Gaza Strip.
Dozens of protesters, relatives of Palestinians held in Israeli prisons, were waiting for French foreign minister Alliot-Marie as she crossed from Israel into Gaza through the Erez Crossing, jumping on her vehicle.
Palestinians were protesting because they mistakenly believed she had called the capture of an Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit a “war crime”.
The remark had actually been made by the soldier’s father, Noam Schalit, when he met Michele Alliot-Marie a day earlier.
Schalit, an Israeli-French dual national, was captured in a 2006 cross-border raid by militants with ties to Hamas. France has repeatedly called for his release.
Wow, how classy! I heard that’s she claims that the blockade causes poverty and aggression. She is still defending them, can you believe it?
I think the French FM suffers from “battered wife syndrome”.
The Arabs just needed an excuse to beat her up.
BTW, the U.S. State Dept. has a strict edict against their employees going to Gaza. The State Dept. also warns U.S. citizens that they can expect NO diplomatic services from the United States if they travel there.
Apparently, the French Foreign Minister didn’t get that memo.
And the Frenchies will say, “I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!”
