Marin Le Pen was bloodied by the media for her remark that “France” was not responsible for the roundup of Jews during WWII, it was, ‘those in power’. It is similar to the defense we use in the US for gun ownership, ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’. A gun is a tool – just as France was a tool.
It echoes the recent attempts to blame an entire country and all it’s people in the present for the crimes committed by ‘people’ decades, hundreds – if not thousands of years ago. It would be like putting every American citizen on trial for the crimes of the Puritans. Or, putting all the American Indians on trail for the rapes and scalpings of white men, women, children hundreds of years ago.
Therefore, Le Pen’s statement that ‘France’ is not to blame today for the crimes committed by those in power during WWII – is absolutely, correct.
As such, Jewish commentators should be careful in rallying the French Jews behind Macron based on the idea that Le Pen is now somehow a ‘Holocaust denier’. Broad Jump!
Today, a Townhall commentator has decried that Le Pen will treat all Jews like the Muslims and therefore they should place their vote with Macron. The source of the Le Pen denouncement would seem to come from CRIF; Conseil Représentatif des Institutions juives de France.
So what is CRIF?
1976 to 1982, Alain de Rothschild was President of CRIF.
From 2001 to 2007, and again from 2013 to 2016, Roger Cukierman served as the President at CRIF. Prior to that he worked for the Edmond de Rothschild Group and for the Banque Privee Edmond de Rothschild.
What can be deduced is that the Jewish media cry for Macron, who was also a former ‘employee’ of Rothschild, and the denouncement of Le Pen, is all built on the Rothschild agenda advocating globalization, world power, and a Socialist/Communist regime change utilizing puppet governments.
European media outlets are blustering over a comment made by Rabbi Lazar during a FSU conference. It is important to understand the context of Rabbi Lazar’s statement in which he advises Jews to leave France if Le Pen is elected. In 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu made the same plea, calling for France’s Jews to come home after three days of Islamist attacks. The point? France has the largest Muslim population of any country in Europe. France is NOT a safe haven for Jews as a direct result of the massive Islamist extremism that has punctuated there.
Given that Le Pen vows to crack down on immigration, crime and extremist attacks inside France, a new spate may erupt in defiance. While Macron’s stance is a rather pathetic, ‘”well they are here to stay, terrorism is just a part of life now, live with it”, philosophy, Le Pen does not want to play dead. As such she is vowing to secure France from Islamic extremism which should be a Halleluja for the Jewish population.
When Netanyahu was making the plea, their was no National Front in power, it was Hollande, the Socialist do nothing. It is Rothschild and Soros pushing for a Macron win, attempting to twist the leverage through manipulation of the Aliyah or Exodus that has been instituted and called for since 2014.
The Times of Israel offers a different perspective which shows that many French Jews are reluctant to publically announce their preference for Le Pen for fear of reprisal or backlash. Instead, they keep their opinions private and vote their conscious. A similar phenomena occurred in the US leaving the pollsters quaking in their boots as all their fine algorithms proved worthless after a Trump win.
As such, it would behoove the French to investigate the sources of the pro-Macron propaganda, such as CRIF. And I suppose if Le Pen does win, it will all be a Russian plot…
FYI: The left leaning Liberals decry the fact that Le Pen would limit Jews from wearing Kippahs… however crosses, kippahs and Hijabs have already been banned in France’s public schools since 2004. Where was the Indignation? Funny, there was no Jewish response, only Muslim outrage.
