Solidarity, according to the Oxford Dictionary, “is unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest”.

Tell me, what sort of unity of feeling can you or I or Benjamin Netanyahu have with Mahmoud Abbas? What sort of common interest do we have with the leader of a an organisation that proclaims its “struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished”?

While you’re pondering that, answer me as to how a country that has lost Jewish lives to a cowardly terrorist attack has the temerity to ask the leader of the Jewish state not to attend a solidarity rally.

This is not solidarity but a two-faced insult. This is not the France of the French Resistance. This is Vichy France with a politically correct mask.

Am Yisrael Chai!   … but no thanks to Francois Hollande.
