French President Nicolas Sarkozy attacks anti-Semitism and his support for a secure Israel

In a report by the Washington Jewish Week, French President Nicolas Sarkozy attacks anti-Semtism, saying it was deplorable to deny it or even to rationalize it at a minimum. He said "At a minimum, when you start explaining racism, you are rationalizing racism," and he noted it should be attacked "head-on." He also reaffirmed his belief in a secure Israel and that its right to security "should be inviolable and guaranteed," and that "the international community has a responsibility for Israeli security."

It is good to see a French President, even when his country is one of the leaders in Europe of anti-Semitism, waking up and finally showing that it is not dead, but that anti-Semitism is alive and well, for now.
