Chirac opposes sanctions on Hamas

You just knew this was coming.

On the final day of a trip to Saudi Arabia, French President Dhimmy Jacques Chirac announced that he is opposed to the sanctions that the United States and the European Union are set to impose on the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority:

Speaking to reporters on the final day of his visit to Saudi Arabia, Chirac said he was aware of the calls for cutting off aid to a Palestinian Authority led by Hamas, owing to the group's refusal to recognize Israel and renounce violence.

"I am hostile to sanctions in general, and in this case in particular, because I do not see why we would impose sanctions whose consequences would in reality be borne mainly by the Palestinian people," Chirac said.


Chirac said Hamas has to come round to recognizing Israel and stopped terror attacks on Israel because "one cannot recognize a government that uses violence as a policy."

"I hope that the discussions begun with Hamas by a certain number of parties can lead to this positive result," Chirac added, apparently referring to the recent Russian talks with Hamas leader.

"Speaking truthfully, I don't doubt it because Hamas must now assume the responsibilities of democracy," Chirac added.

Earth to Jacques: Hamas has given NO indication that they are going to change. As to the 'Palestinians' - they voted for Hamas knowing exactly what its policies are (violence, violence and more violence) and what the consequences of their vote might be. They have no one to blame but themselves.

So what else is new?

It was,after all, the bloody French who said 'Take our Jews, please!' to the nazis...and it is France where Eurabia startd ,and Jews are Jews are being murdered...and it was France who helped Iraq with Osiris.

There is nothing that I could say that would properly express what I think of the country. I was there for one day,almost 20 years ago, with my daughter..we took the Hovercraft to Boulogne, from Dover. It is a beautiful country to see, but the French? I would not go back if it was a free trip, nor do we buy any French products.

The Jews still left in that cesspool should not tally; it is past the time to leave en masse. Uh, pardon my French.
