French President Macron condemns Jerusalem terror attack, decries Trump’s decision

At a news conference in Paris Sunday after his talks with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the Palestinian terrorist attack in Jerusalem earlier, which gravely injured an Israeli security guard. But he told the prime minister he disapproved of President Trumps’ decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “Its status should be resolved in direct negotiations for a two-state solution and Jerusalem divided as capitals of Israel and the Palestinian state,” the French president insisted. Netanyahu praised Macron and France as friends of Israel, but, he said, “We don’t have to agree about everything – although I’m still working on convincing the president about Trump’s decision.”
The prime minister pointed out that Israel provides invaluable intelligence to countries in the Middle East and outside it for preventing terrorism. He then commented: “Paris is the capital of France, Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years and 70 years of Israel. We should respect one another’s capitals.”

    Friends – dont you worry: those nations who want to divide Israel and its eternal capital Jerusalem : Your God has said in the holy scriptures that HE will cut those nations in pieces ! Look at the EU : while spitting at
    US president Trump, the EU is politically falling apart / financially broke and far from being able to defend itself without the USA….Suicidal cowards / hypocrits + fools…
    The hope of Israel is her almighty God – HE is taking care of Israels enemies…
    HE is watching over his firstborn Israel 24/7/365….

    They are dying species, no children, not fit to survive. Arabs will breed with their women and Islam becoming dominant in a few years; unless ISLAM is not totally destroyed in the nuclear confrontation with other nations and races who are fit to survive. It is inevitable confrontation and the demise of ISLAM is just a matter of time.

    Blindness. It must be a European invention. They ignored Hitler until it was too late, they accommodated Stalin until it was obvious what he intended for them, and they now ignore the duplicity and hatred of the PLA toward Israel. When you lose a war, repeatedly, you don’t get to dictate the peace terms or the boundaries of your country. When you fail to negotiate in good faith, for decades, you lose any credibility at the conference table. When you try to use world opinion to force your opponent into making bad decisions, knowing that your opponent has suffered centuries of persecution at the hands of the very people that you think will exert pressure for you; it merely proves how weak is your case for nationhood.

      Good recap, fully agree , except the blindness part…the sad thing is Europe is (was some say) on a way to make a good liberal peacefully society…everyone money food and possibilities…unfortunately the naivety of some past governments , thought it was a good idea to recruit some labourers (temporarily mind you) to come help us build this walhalla and make some money themselves (their homelands were and still are in economic sh§t) they did not expect them to stay (naive) or to reproduce at the rate of Moshe and Sarah….so demographically Europe is slowly being scr§wed…Still our lovely left baring govts believe in the peace and flowers the new Europeans are bringing…a foto from a beach in Italy opens immediately our hearts wallets and borders…we wanne do so goooddd ,, in the meantime Daesh is wheeling in their children of islam by the hundreds ready to start blowing up Europes soft targets…..still we fail to see the potential loyalty dangers amongst our new Europeans…yes i am afraid a civil war Bosnian style is inevitable…

    Was Paris around 3,000 years ago? Was it the capital of France 3,000 years ago? Was France as a country around 3,000 years ago? Any other Euro capitals? Were there Jews In Jerusalem 3,000 years ago? How about Parisians? Where there Muslims 3,000 years ago in Jerusalem? Common sense and a complete lack of historical (or should I say hysterical) record apparently eludes the rest of the world.
