Macron says France to treat anti-Zionism a ‘form of anti-Semitism’

Introduction – Feb 22, 2019

Former Rothschild banker Emmanuel Macron is proving himself to be a full-blown Zionist stooge by conflating opposition to Zionism with “anti-Semitism”. Indeed this is exactly what the Zionists want.
No matter how many individual Jews speak out against Zionism, and there are a growing number, under Macron’s revised definition in future they will also be seen “anti-Semitic”.
Of course, Macron’s moves against “anti-Semitism” aren’t actually about protecting Jews. Like Zionism itself they are really about keeping individual Jews of conscience in line while keeping the goy in check.
Learning to discriminate between wrong and right and all the shades between is crucial to our development as spiritual beings. As individuals we need to exercise making that choice, for better or for worse, because it enables us to grow.
However, in its own way Zionism is turning into a prison for individual Jews. Rather than allowing them to develop into individuals capable of making independent and informed choices according to what they see as right or wrong, they are instead being made beholden to the dictates of the Zionist collective.
Conveniently Macron’s announcement follows his visit to a Jewish cemetery in the Alsace region, where almost 100 graves were daubed with blue and yellow swastikas.
Nobody has been charged or arrested over the vandalism, but it fortuitously helped underline Macron’s announcement and recent attempts in France to link the anti-government “gilets jaunes” protests with anti-Semitism.
After all, what better way to discredit the protests and pave the way for a more draconian crackdown than to smear the Yellow Jackets as Nazis and “anti-Semites”?
We honestly don’t know who desecrated the graves in Alsace and nor are we saying that the incident was staged.
However, although we’ve been told that “anti-Semites” were responsible we should not forget that Jews have been caught on numerous occasions daubing Synagogues and other Jewish sites with anti-Semitic graffiti (here, here, here and here). So it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that this may have been the work of Zionists setting the scene for Macron’s announcement. Ed.

Macron to unveil measures to fight anti-Semitism amid protests 

French President Emmanuel Macron gave a dramatic speech at an annual dinner with Jewish community leaders on Wednesday evening discussing the need for new means to fight the sharp rise in anti-Semitism, following a spate of hate crimes across the country.

“There is something worse than an evil — a soul that is accustomed to evil. We cannot become accustomed,” he said after praising the “history of French Jews who have contributed to making our nation what it is.”

He said part of the problem was that “Anti–Semitism is hiding itself behind anti-Zionism,” announcing that France would adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism that also encompasses anti-Zionism.

The announcement was met with resounding applause and was hailed by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was informed of the decision in a phone call from Macron shortly before the event.

“In the last few years, the situation is becoming worse, just in the last few weeks — in our country and Europe, anti-Semitism is becoming worse,” the president said lamenting the failure to adequately dispense with it.

“We have not been able to act efficiently…there is too much indignation, but not enough results. It is time to act.”

The French president vowed to take on protests against the state of Israel, such as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement that advocates isolating the Jewish state over its treatment of Palestinians, inspired by international advocacy against apartheid-era South Africa.

At the same time, he stressed the importance of education in combating hate speech and anti-Semitism, promising to set aside more funds to teach about the history of the Holocaust, while denouncing how much the number of Jews enrolled in France’s public schools has dropped off.

He also spoke of introducing a parliamentary bill in May to combat hate crimes and incitement, as well as instructing lawmakers to dissolve associations that promote hatred, discrimination or make appeals for violence.

Macron’s address to the annual gathering of the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions, known by the acronym “CRIF”, was watched closely by French Jews after a spate of anti-Semitic hate crimes that has sparked protests across the country.

On a visit Tuesday to a cemetery in the Alsace region, near Germany, where 96 Jewish tombstones were spray-painted with blue and yellow swastikas, Macron vowed: “We shall act, we shall pass laws, we shall punish.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the “shocking” anti-Semitic vandalism, while one of his cabinet colleagues urged French Jews to “come home” to Israel.

Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin, meanwhile, penned a letter to Macron thanking him for his visit to the desecrated graves and for his “serious commitment” to opposing anti-Semitism.

Macron’s visit came as thousands of people took part in rallies around France to condemn a recent spike in anti-Jewish crimes, which Macron and his government has linked in part to anti-Semitic elements within the “yellow vest” protest movement.

Tensions mounted last weekend after a prominent French writer was the target of a violent tirade by a “yellow vest” protester in Paris on Saturday. A video of the scene showed the protester calling the philosopher Alain Finkielkraut a “dirty Zionist” and telling him “France belongs to us”.

The suspect, who wore a green “keffiyeh” scarf, was one of the most vocal members of a group that jeered Finkielkraut and called him a “racist”, apparently referring to the academic’s repeated warnings about what he sees as the failure of Muslim immigrants to integrate into French society.

“I refuse to say that this recalls the worst times of our history,” Finkelkraut told i24NEWS after the exchange, “we should stop with all that, I wasn’t called a ‘dirty Jew’.”

“I was insulted because of alleged links with a state described as criminal, even genocidal,” he said, referring to Israel. “Some people are possessed with hate for the Jews because they hate Israel,” he added, qualifying this hatred as “unfathomable.”
