It's about time: French 'diplomat' who struck soldier to be expelled from Israel

Remember Marion Castaing, the French 'diplomat' who punched an Israeli soldier in the face? You will be pleased to hear that she is going to be expelled.
The French diplomat who was involved in a physical clash with Border Police personnel in the Jordan Valley last Friday will be expelled from Israel.
Marion Fesneau-Castaing, a cultural attaché at the French Consulate in Jerusalem, will leave Israel before the end of the year.
A video of the incident near Khirbet al-Makhul last Friday shows Fesneau-Caistaing striking a Border Police officer in the face.
Israel filed a complaint with France about the incident. The two countries decided to handle the matter while "maintaining Israel-France relations," as an Israeli official put it.
End of the year? They should have given her 48 hours to leave.

In other news involving the French diplomatic corps, a chauffeur for the Jerusalem consulate was caught trying to smuggle 152 kilos of gold bars, 500 kilos of tobacco, hundreds of new cel phones, and $2 million in checks across the border to Jordan (Hat Tip: Shy Guy).

Sounds like the French need to do a little diplomatic training....

Marion Castaing should also be barred from re-entry (with no recourse of appeal) for next 5 years at least.
