The exhibit — which also visited Rome and Warsaw — is a joint venture of the Israeli Strategic Affairs Ministry and Israeli Foreign Ministry, showing Israel’s character as a nation of technology, innovation, culture, and rich history.

“The BDS activists have once again revealed their true faces, not human rights activists, but extremists and lawbreakers whose goal is to silence anyone who supports Israel,” Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan said regarding the vandalism. “I will work so that the truth about Israel is heard in the world.”

    Paris has more than it’s share of problems as does all of Europe. I have been keeping up with this refugee invasion, 75% male and healthy and wondering after living in Europe for close to 4 years why they are importing more problems. Paris has had terrible problems with Muslims and Nazi and their Jew hatred. Seems to me that after this last attack they would have pulled down hard on the ropes to bind the Jew haters and Christian haters they have among them.

    Suppose only the Slavic countries retain any sensibilities being as they say no to Muslims and problems. Sad that the one’s being hated are the innocent, history repeating itself in more ways than one all over the world including the U.S.

    As usual, the side that resorts to unscrupulous methods to further their cause is the one most easily discredited.
