Palestinian terrorist Majdi Al-Rimawi, who had been convicted and sentenced to prison for life for his role in the murder of former Israeli Minister of Tourism Rechavam Ze’evi in 2001, has been offered “honorary citizenship” by the French city of Bezons.

Al-Rimawi was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization. In addition, the municipality of the city prepared a plaque referring to Al-Rimawi as a “political prisoner,” according to Palestinian Media Watch.

“Majdi is a direct victim of this [Israeli] occupation… As are the 4,500 Palestinian resistance [fighters] who were imprisoned for having dared to defend their country against an occupier whose military means are oversized and whose methods constantly violate UN resolutions and international law,” said the mayor of the city of Bezons, Dominique Lesparre, in a speech during the dedication ceremony.

    France and the rest of Western Europe (led by the French)made a deal with Arab states during the first Opec action agaist Europe. I believe the deal is that Europe will support the Arab states in foreign policy and also allow Muslims to enter in great numbers into Europe and of course oppose the foreign policy of the U.S. and do nothing to support Israel’s right to exist. Read the the book Eurabia. It is available on

They secret service is also responsible for the death of the terror attack on a ship in New Zealand that was acting to stop nuclear test.
    Also the killing of around 80 people most Italian’s when they fire a missile to an Italian line plane “Ustica” carnage. Still cover by the France republic, that had eliminate” disappeared and killing “of Italian’s citizen which had evidence against them. They are very good and arrogant when is for they so call security.

    So now the world knows that Bezons, France, is the sister city of Ramallah, Palestinian Authority. And Dominique Lesparre, the mayor of Bezons, who referred to Majdi al-Rimawi, one of the convicted assassins of Rechavam Ze’evi, as an “honorary citizen of Bezons,” is the counter-ego of Mahmoud Abbas, the Holocaust denier and former president of the P.A. The only question left is which street in both cities will be renamed for al-Rimawi in honor of his being a “political prisoner of the occupying State of Israel.” After all, a mere plaque is not sufficient recognition for a murderer. A street name is much more dignified. Is there any question as to whether France is headed in the direction of becoming an Islamist vassal state? I very sadly wonder which European country will become the first to join the new Caliphate.
