UN ‘Special Rappoteur’ Justifies October 7 Terror Attack; Israel Wants Her Fired
Attack was a reaction to Israeli oppression
The United Nations’ “Special Rapporteur” on human rights for Palestinians justified the October 7 terror attack on Saturday, saying that it was a reaction to Israeli oppression.
In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Francesca Albanese objected to French President Emmanuel Macron expressing sympathy for the victims. She wrote (translated from French by Google): “The ‘greatest anti-Semitic massacre of our century’? No, Mr. @EmmanuelMacron. The victims of 7/10 were not killed because of their Judaism, but in response to Israel’s oppression. France & the international community did nothing to prevent it. My respects to the victims.”
Le ‘plus grand massacre antisémite de notre siècle’? Non, M. @EmmanuelMacron. Les victimes du 7/10 n’ont pas été tuées à cause de leur judaïsme, mais en réaction de l’oppression d’Israël. La France & la communauté int’le n’ont rien fait pour l’empêcher. Mes respects aux victimes. https://t.co/uiXOkD7HV4

In response, the French government said (translated by Google): “The October 7 massacre is the largest anti-Semitic massacre of the 21st century. Disputing it is a mistake. Seeming to justify it, by including the name of the United Nations, is a shame. These comments are all the more scandalous since the fight against anti-Semitism and all forms of racism are at the heart of the founding of the UN.”
Le massacre du 7 octobre est le plus grand massacre antisémite du 21e siècle. Le contester est une faute. Sembler le justifier, en y mêlant le nom des Nations Unies, est une honte.
Ces propos sont d’autant plus scandaleux que la lutte contre l’antisémitisme et toutes les formes… https://t.co/IGOfEP5Q0q
