ER Editor: Readers may be interested in this link to the Eurosatory Defense Exhibition for 2024 to see what kind of event it is. It’s self-billed as ‘the global event for defence and security.’

France is up to its neck, much like the USA, in tacit support for, and influence from, Zionism. The media here is unbearably pro-Zionist, with discussions of alleged anti-semitism virtually non-stop on the opinion-based news shows. This despite the fact that France has the largest Muslim population (as well as the largest Jewish one) in Europe. 

This news is eliciting pro and con reaction on Twitter.

It is indeed a highly significant move for France.

Translation: France is cancelling the participation of Israeli companies in the Eurosatory exhibition.

France bans Israeli companies from the Eurosatory Defense Exhibition 2024: A Historic Victory!

France has decided to exclude Israeli companies from the Eurosatory 2024 exhibition. This historic decision marks a strong stance in favor of human rights and international peace. A big step for justice and a victory celebrated by human rights activists.

LE MEDIA EN 4-4-2

In an unprecedented decision, France has decided to exclude Israeli companies from the prestigious international defense and land security exhibition, Eurosatory 2024, which will be held from June 17 to 21 in Paris. This announcement was made this Friday by the organizer of the event, Coges Events, and marks a strong position taken by the French authorities.

Absence of Israeli Industrialists

Coges Events confirmed to AFP that “by decision of government authorities, there will be no Israeli defense industry stand at the Eurosatory 2024 exhibition.” This exclusion comes in a climate of strong international tensions, exacerbated by a recent Israeli bombing on a displaced persons camp in Rafah, having triggered a wave of protests in France and around the world against Israeli military actions in the Gaza Strip.

The decision to exclude Israeli companies from the Eurosatory 2024 exhibition stems in particular from a question asked to the French government by MP Elsa Faucillon on May 21, 2024. She stressed that “these companies have long used the Palestinian territories to develop new technologies” and challenged the minister on the need to take responsibility to cancel the arrival of Israeli exhibitors.

An Initially Expected Participation

Eurosatory 2024 was expected to welcome more than 2,000 international exhibitors, including 74 Israeli companies, as well as defense industry giants. These companies planned to present major innovations in military technology. Charles Beaudouin, president of Coges Events, had previously underlined the importance of this Israeli participation.

The Context of the Conflicts in Gaza

Since the start of Israeli strikes on Gaza, more than 36,224 Palestinians have lost their lives, mainly women, children and adolescents. This tragic toll sparked a massive international reaction and influenced the decision of French authorities to exclude Israeli companies from the show.

Israel Increasingly Isolated on the International Scene

Israel finds itself increasingly isolated on the international scene. Celebrities around the world strongly condemn the colonialist entity, while calls for boycotts multiply across the globe. The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an international arrest warrant against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and several countries now prohibit him from setting foot on their territory under penalty of arrest. The image of Israel today is catastrophic, synonymous with massacres, with the faces of killed children becoming poignant symbols of this tragedy.

A Victory for Human Rights Defenders

For many activists and human rights defenders, this decision is a major victory. It reflects a moral stance in the face of Israel’s genocidal military actions. This exclusion is seen as a strong message in favor of respect for human rights and international peace.

France’s decision to ban Israeli companies from the Eurosatory trade fair could have profound repercussions on diplomatic and commercial relations between the two countries.

This decision is celebrated as a great victory by human rights defenders around the world.
