La République en Marche, the political party of French President Emmanuel Macron, today rejected the “dangerous proposals” of an Israeli minister. The latter had called on French Jews to move to Israel after a series of anti-Semitic incidents in France, most notably the desecration of 80 graves in Quatzenheim with Swastikas and anti-Semitic graffiti.
“I strongly condemn anti-Semitism in France and call on the Jews: come home, immigrate to Israel,” said the Minister of Immigration Yoav Gallant on Twitter.
“Their home, that is France. The people are French and I think such proposals are dangerous “, replied La République spokesman and Aurore Bergé on Radio France Internationale (RFI).
“Our country without Jews, would no longer be the same country. I want us to reaffirm our values instead, and that’s what we did last night, “she continued. Ms Bergé was referring to protests that took place last night against the flaring-up of anti-Semitism in Frace.
“We know that there are currently elections in Israel, so I can imagine that all this is not innocent,” she concluded.
