The Iranians are up-front about their intentions: "Israel is doomed to be wiped off the map in a war of destiny. "Israel no longer has reason to exist and will soon disappear." "Israel is a disgraceful stain on the Islamic world and a rotten dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm."
Instead of telling the Iranians to end their Holocaust denial, support for terrorism, and genocidal threats, the French are enthusiastically arranging billions of eruros worth of business with Iran, including the sale of dual-use technologies to boost Iran’s nuclear and missile development.

“The only time I saw France was through a train window as it crossed the entire country from west to east in July 1976. When my wife and I arrived from our hotel in Brussels at the train station, I saw the headlines that France condemned Israel for violating the territorial sovereignty of Uganda to rescue the Jews from an Air France plane hijacked to Entebbe by Arab and German terrorists. I refused to exit the train in Paris for our planned vacation. I paid for a ticket to the next stop – Basel. We vacationed in Switzerland.”
“It seems that French contempt for Jews and Israel hasn’t changed since Israel’s daring rescue of endangered Jews in which our prime minister’s brother Yoni was killed.”
