Macron reiterates France's responsibility in WW2 mass round-up of Jews

Macron reiterates France's responsibility in WW2 mass round-up of Jews

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyah opposes the ceasefire agreement in Southern Syria reached between the US and Russian Federation - which affects areas near the Golan - that went into effect last week, Israeli media reported Sunday.

A senior Israeli official who asked not to be named due to the diplomatic sensitivity of the matter said Israel is aware of Iranian intensions to substantially expand its presence in Syria.

Two days after treating President Donald Trump to a Bastille Day parade, Emmanuel Macron welcomed yet another world leader - the Israeli prime minister - to Paris.

Macron rolled out the red carpet for Trump on Friday when he was guest of honour for France's Bastille Day festivities.

In April, Marine Le Pen said: "France, as a nation, is not responsible for" what happened at Vel d'Hiv, prompting Macron, who was then running for president against the far-right leader of the National Front party, to visit a Holocaust monument in protest of her statement.

At a ceremony attended by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr Macron also pledged to fight continued anti-Semitism.

It is understood that Mr Davis said in private: "If Manchester United played Real Madrid, you wouldn't let Real pick the referee". Monday's discussions will focus on citizen's rights and the bill the United Kingdom will pay to exit.

Stressing that global law should be "respected by all", Macron said he was referring to Israel's "continued building of settlements" in occupied Palestinian territory, a policy opposed by France.

It was the first commemoration of this kind to be attended by an Israeli prime minister.

After the event with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Paris, Macron said that "everything should be done so that negotiations restart" with the aim of reaching a two-state solution, as the global community has long sought.

Separately, President Macron denounced his country's collaboration in the Holocaust, attacking those who still downplay the French role in sending tens of thousands of Jews to their deaths. "We will never forget, never, these great, great human beings". "It seems that the values of the French Revolution - liberty, equality and fraternity - these values were crushed, crushed brutally under the boot of anti-Semitism".

After the ceremony, Netanyahu and Macron headed to the Elysee palace for their first formal working meeting. The Jewish community must know that we, the veterans, did not abandon them.
