Why Did Israel Warn France About “Grave Consequences” If They Supported A Palestinian State?
In December 2014 151 out of 339 French MPs voted in favour of recognising Palestine as a State. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the vote a “grave mistake“.
Was this a threat to France of things to come?
Since the Charlie Hebdo attacks rumours abound on the internet that Mossad may have had something to do with the attacks. The fingers point to Israel and to the threat Netanyahu issued France.
Uprooted Palestinians Blog reports:
Israel had warned France of grave consequences even before the country voted in favour of Palestine. Speaking to reporters in Jerusalem, France 24 reported Netanyahu as saying that time: “Do they have nothing better to do at a time of beheadings across the Middle East, including that of a French citizen? Recognition of a Palestinian state by France would be a grave mistake.
“The State of Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people, the only state that we have, and the Palestinians demanding a state do not want to recognise the right to have a state for the Jewish people.”
Israel, last week, also expressed its “deep disappointment” with France for voting for a Palestinian resolution at the UN Security Council and calling for a full IDF withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines by the end of 2017, the Jerusalem Post reported.
France was one of eight countries supporting Palestine in the Security Council – although it fell one-vote short of the nine necessary to pass.
Although there is no way to verify the claims that Mossad was involved, the backdrop in which the attack took place seems to indicate that it might be involved, many conspiracy theorists have noted. Mossad is responsible for intelligence collection and has undertaken many covert operations for Israel in Europe that aim to further their Jewish cause.
