Skip to comments.Undiplomatic: Israel Furious After French Diplomat Hits Soldier
Posted on 09/22/2013 8:01:14 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Tensions between Israel and the European Union over the EU boycott of Israelis living in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) may be exacerbated by a new incident in which a French diplomat struck an IDF soldier.
The incident occurred as IDF soldiers stopped a humanitarian aid shipment of tents and other supplies that were headed for an illegal Bedouin encampment.
The equipment was to be sent to Bedouin and foreign activists in the Jordan Valley whose illegal encampment was destroyed last week after the High Court of Justice, Israels Supreme Court, ruled that the structures were built without proper permits. The Bedouin claim they have lived in the area for generations.

The proper response to this should have been a rifle butt to the head (of the “diplomat”).
Get rid of Hollande, that hideous Eiffel contraption and half of the most toxic Arabs and other antisemites in the world.
Try building a structure in France without a permit. LMAO Fat chance...
The French are being occupied, can’t even control their own territory, and they’re concerned with what’s taking place in Israel?
The French and the Germans seem to want to become the world’s most disgusting Western nation. Good luck with the competition folks.
what a nasty woman
Checked the video out on the incident ... not much of a punch. Just a light jab ... no big deal.
I’d use the other end.
So? Are you saying the diplomat hits like a girl? :D
7.62 rounds can penetrate diplomatic immunity, I believe.
Oh, no. She hits like a Frenchman.
Don’t forget that so many of the French (supposedly our allies) were far more enthusiastic collaborators with the Nazis than the Italians (supposedly our enemies) ever were. Whereas the Vichy were quite cooperative with their conquerors, the Italians conveniently misplaced and even lost records on which of their countrymen were Jewish. French Jews had the highest death rate in western Europe. Italian Jews had the best survival rate in Axis occupied western Europe save the Scandinavian countries only. This was particularly impressive when you consider that Hitler entertained pipe dreams of winning the Nordic peoples over as allies and, thus, was very careful with even their Jewish populations. Danish Jews got their own higher class relocation camps and not a single one was murdered.
Is it just me, or does that cameraman have the most steady hands ever? No jerky movements, high angles... It’s almost like the camera was on a dolly or something.
I wasn’t aware of that. I appreciate the mention.
Thank God for videos. Must come as a shock to the protesters. They can’t hide what they are really doing as well.
Israel should declare her personna non grata, toute suite.
...a French diplomat struck an IDF soldier... as IDF soldiers stopped a... shipment of tents and other supplies that were headed for an illegal Bedouin encampment... to Bedouin and foreign activists in the Jordan Valley whose illegal encampment was destroyed last week after the High Court of Justice, Israels Supreme Court, ruled that the structures were built without proper permits.
And I heard that Finland had 2,000 Jews at the time, but the Finns never gave up any of them to the Nazis. That’s why Finland is the most pro-Israel country in Europe today.
I was not aware of this until a few years ago.
I should visit Finlandia
Don’t know about the number, but Finland was indeed a refuge for European Jews. Hundreds of them got transit visas through Japan under Chihune Sugihara, the brave Japanese Consul-General there. As you may know, Japan and Finland were both officially allies of Germany during the war, but they were never into Jewish persecution. Neutral Sweden, which still provided a lot of iron ore and other minerals for the German war machine, also provided another escape hatch for European Jews.
