French-Israeli spat over French President's comments on "Sacking" Lieberman
30-Jun-2009 (2 comments)

Israel's foreign ministry has accused France of unacceptable meddling in its internal affairs over a reported comment by President Nicolas Sarkozy. He was quoted by Israeli TV calling for Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who leads a far-right party, to be sacked. The plea, which has not been confirmed nor denied by officials, was allegedly made during a meeting with Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu last week.

Second Decent Comment ... ;0)

The first was widely acclaimed by Iranians in France and in the Diaspora by calling the Elections a Fraud but also denouncing the IRI for its violence with a very firm stance which made Obama's speach quite mild in comparison.

In all the demonstrations for the Green Vote in Paris that were held the organizers ( despite the fact that many belonging to left wing or socialist sensitivities) repeatedly thanked Sarkozy for standing with the Iranian People, amongst those who thanked Sarkozy were Satrapi and Makhmalbaf.

It says alot on how much Sarkozy's foreign policy stance towards Iran is appreciated here. Some claim its Carla Bruni's positive influence on the Right Wing President.

My humble Opinion,



The one decent comment he has made since became president
