French President Hollande Expresses Solidarity with Israel after Rocket Attacks(KUNA – Kuwait)

(daily alert, July 10, 2014)

  In a departure from his usual and relatively-balanced policy on the Middle East conflict, French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday issued a strong message of support for Israel which he said should take all measures to protect its population faced with rocket attacks from the Palestinians in Gaza Strip.

  The Prime Minister has reassured Israel of Britain’s support in the ongoing conflict between the Jewish state and Hamas in Gaza. 

  A Downing Street spokeswoman said: “The Prime Minister spoke to Prime Minister Netanyahu earlier this evening about the situation in Israel. 

  “The Prime Minister strongly condemned the appalling attacks being carried out by Hamas against Israeli civilians. The Prime Minister reiterated the UK’s staunch support for Israel in the face of such attacks, and underlined Israel’s right to defend itself from them.”
Contrast to Obama:
(from multiple sources…Ed.)
It took Obama 18 days to condemn the kidnapping and subsequently confirmed murder of 3 Israeli teenagers, while he condemned the murder of a Palestinian 16 year old on the first day.

He condemned the rocket fire on Israel, and in the next breath called on both sides to avoid escalating the situation (ie Israel shouldn’t respond to the rocket fire). 
His spokespeople have blamed Islamic Jihad for the rockets, and have avoided mentioning Hamas’s role (since they support the Palestinian “unity” government). So, in short, NO! they have not condemned the Hamas attacks…they have called them Islamic Jihad attacks, or just “rocket attacks”, providing cover for Hamas.
