France's Macron shares Israel's concerns about Lebanon's Hezbollah

Netanyahu, who was in France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Jews being rounded up in Paris, delivered his remarks after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.

On July 16-17 1942, French police under the Vichy regime - a puppet government of Nazi Germany - launched "Operation Spring Breeze", which led to the roundup of more than 13,000 Jews in Paris.

Macron dismissed arguments by French far-right leaders and others that the collaborationist Vichy government didn't represent France.

After Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he opposes the Washington-Moscow deal regarding Syria, Russia's foreign minister said that Israel's considerations will be taken into account during the discussions.

"We will not let the Iranians and Hezbollah be the forces that will win the very brutal war in Syria" and then turn their guns on Israel, said Amidror, now a fellow at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies who has remained in touch with PM Netanyahu.

"It was indeed France that organized this", Macron said, referring to the mass arrests of Jewish citizens by French police authorities who cooperated with the Nazis. "We can not build pride upon a lie", he said.

Macron: Talks with Trump are 'obvious and indispensable'
He also insisted that Trump had listened to his arguments in favour of the U.S. remaining in the Paris Agreement. Macron also revealed that Trump could consider a new approach to the global accord.


French diplomatic sources said that one should not confuse what is said in the open and what is said behind closed doors.

He confirmed France's long-held policy that favours a two-state solution with Jerusalem as the capital for the Palestinian state and Israel and said he would visit Israel "in the coming months", at the invitation of the Israeli prime minister.

The occasion was also a revival of anti-Semitism in France, a string of terrorist attacks against French Jews, and an exodus of Jews from France (5,000 to 8,000 per year recently, out of a population of around 600,000).

A USA official told The Associated Press that Israel had been "a part" of the agreement, but did not elaborate, while Haaretz reported that senior Israeli officials were only briefed on the talks and not a direct party to them. "This story has nothing to do with Israel", he said.

That Netanyahu felt the need to go public with his displeasure points to this being a particular sore spot, and Israeli officials say he also brought the matter up to both US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Israeli Prime Minister stands accused of violating worldwide law by setting up a blockade in Gaza and planting Israeli settlements on the Palestinian West Bank.
