“It’s like Man vs. Wild“. This is what I thought when I saw the second half of the below video, and I imagine it could have been Antoine de Maximy‘s thought too after he faced those Israelis’ hostility.
It’s very funny how many Israelis still think France is an enemy or at least not a friend country. Perhaps the corrective actions undertaken by Sarkozy’s state, such as the trials faced by pro-Palestinian activists (including Alima Boumediene and Stéphane Hessel) who called for a boycott of Israeli goods, will help improve France’s reputation in Israel. But then, would such actions not change the way French tourists are welcomed in Arab countries (cf. first half of the video)?
Anyway, French justice is still independent to a certain extent and Mrs. Boumediene has just won her case.
