France 2 Israel: If you try to stop this violence against you, there might be violence against you
France warns Israel its ban on Palestinians could escalate violence
Three-day closure imposed after Tel Aviv terror attack risks ‘stoking tensions,’ says French FM, adding: ‘France is always working for the security of Israel’ (rimshot, please)
Jean-Marc Ayrault reiterated France’s condemnation of the attack, in which two Palestinian terrorists killed four civilians, but was critical of Israel’s response.“We must be careful about anything that could stoke tensions.”
Israel imposed travel restrictions Thursday on Palestinians and sent hundreds of additional troops into the West Bank. On Friday, the military announced it was closing the West Bank until the end of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot on Sunday due to security concerns, except for “humanitarian and medical” cases and for Palestinians to worship at Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.
“The decision by the Israeli authorities today to revoke tens of thousands of entry permits could stoke tensions which could lead to a risk of escalation,” Ayrault told a small group of reporters at UN headquarters in New York. “We must be careful about anything that could stoke tensions.”
Dude, they are thinking about Louis IX’s solution.
Not ANYTHING else.
