French President:

Anti-Zionism Is Antisemitism

-

In an unprecedented statement, French President Emmanuel Macron said that anti-Zionism and antisemitism are one and the same.

At a Paris event marking the Holocaust with Israeli Prime Benjamin Netanyahu, Macron pledged, "We will never surrender to the messages of hate; we will not surrender to anti-Zionism because it is a reinvention of anti-Semitism."

The statement is unusual because France has traditionally been pro-Arab and hostile toward Israel.

In addition, French authorities have largely ignored the massive wave of antisemitism that has swept the country over the last decade, with attacks usually committed by Muslims.
