Valenton is a French municipality near Paris. It just named a street for Marwan Barghouti, the Palestinian terrorist convicted in 2004 of murdering at least five Israelis.
Palestinian arch-terrorist Barghouti had already been granted honorary citizenship by a large network of French towns like Pierrefitte sur-Seine, a city in the north of Paris. A photograph of Barghouti was hung on the front of the city hall in view of a large crowd, including city hall employees, parliamentarians and French mayors, next to the French flag and the French motto “Liberté, égalité, fraternità”, with the aim of obtaining Barghouti’s release.
Europe’s celebration of a serial killer of Israeli citizens such as Barghouti is far more severe and significant that “The death of Klinghoffer”. This is not art, it is about real inciting to kill innocent Jews. Can you imagine a French street named after Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?
Marwan Barghouti is the president of the French-Palestinian Friendship Club and has a lot of support, especially from France and the European Parliament.
Cowardly Europe, professing “non violence” and peace”, doesn’t find any problem in hailing a murderer such as Barghouti. A cowardly Arab terrorist.
It is Europe, with all its money and political influence, which turned a ferocious terrorist into a hero. Now the terrorist is celebrated in Europe’s streets as a “liberator”.
Seventy years ago, the city of Valenton was ruled by Vichy’s pro Nazi regime and French Jews were deported en masse to Auschwitz and Sobibor. There were Jews of French origin among the victims of Marwan Barghouti’s planned terrorist attacks.
By naming a street after him, France now closes the circle of Europe’s shameless anti-Semitism.
