'Danny the Red' in Ramallah
Former student revolutionary Danny Cohn-Bendit, aka "Danny the Red," visited Ramallah Thursday together with what was termed "a delegation of French Jews," in a show of support for the bid by the Palestinian Authority (PA) for a unilateral declaration of statehood.
Cohn-Bendit, who led the ultra leftist Paris student riots in 1968, joined the Green Party in the 1980s and is now its European co-president.
Cohn-Benedit is a Jew himself and a founder of Jcall, a group of leftist Jews who oppose the right of Israeli Jews to build their homes in Judea and Samaria. Last year, the group initiated a petition against Jews' right to live in these places.
