France: Jewish leader refuses to condemn boycott of Israel

Europe Israel blog reports that Patrick Klugman, elected Socialist Deputy for International Relations and the Francophonie (French-speaking communities), vice president of SOS Racism and co-opted member of the CRIF, has refused to condemn the calls for a boycott of Israel.

On 28 September at the Paris City Council, the group Republicans called on the Mayor of Paris to take a firm stand against the boycott of Israel and BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions).Patrick Klugman, who is a member of the CRIF which is supposed fight against the boycott, opposed the call.

Claude Goasguen, a member of the National Assembly of France who represents the city of Paris and is a member of the Union for a Popular Movement, roundly condemned Mr. Klugman's refusal.    Claude Goasguen is not Jewish.

Crif  is an umbrella organization of French Jewish organizations.  It is highly unlikely that it take any action in respect to Patrick Klugman.

No wonder so many Jews are leaving France.
