Because of his homosexuality and Jewish religion organizations denounce a "wave of hatred" against the new French Prime Minister

Organizations condemned the "wave of anti-Semitic and anti-gay hatred" targeting the new French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal on the "X" platform.

On Thursday, the Union of Jewish Students in France called for “sanctions” to be imposed on the publishers of these messages.

The union wrote in a message published on the same platform that “Gabriel Attal’s appointment as prime minister is the subject of a new wave of anti-Semitic and anti-gay hatred on X.”

He added, "This is not the time for condemnations, but for action," especially by "imposing sanctions on all writers of hate tweets."

Gabriel Attal was appointed Tuesday as Prime Minister of France, making him the youngest Prime Minister in the history of the Republic and the first openly gay to hold this position, as part of a ministerial reshuffle that is supposed to give new impetus to Emmanuel Macron's second term.

The head of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France, Yonathan Arfi, on Tuesday, the day Attal was appointed prime minister, denounced “a wave of homophobic and anti-Semitic comments on social media.”

He said on the “X” platform, “For the haters, it is clear that the prime minister is attributed above all to his sexual orientation or the origin of his name. For the Republican minds, he is a prime minister, just that.”



The German Chancellor condemns a party plan seeking to deport immigrants

The German Chancellor condemns a party plan seeking to deport immigrants

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz strongly condemned alleged plans adopted by far-right parties that aim to deport millions of immigrants, even those with German citizenship, if these parties take power.

An alleged plan, published on the Correctiv website run by a group of investigative journalists on Wednesday, has sparked an uproar in Germany because it paves the way for the return of the Nazi ideology of deporting all non-Germans.

News leaked of a secret meeting in which far-right parties participated, held in a palace outside Berlin to plan the deportation of millions of immigrants. 

Schulz said Germany would not allow anyone living in the country to be judged on the basis of race.

“We protect everyone, regardless of race or colour,” the chancellor wrote on X on Thursday.

He added, “Anyone who opposes our free democratic system will be subject to accountability from the domestic intelligence office and the judiciary in Germany.” He said: "Drawing lessons from Germany's history should not be mere talk."

Schulz meant the Nazi dictatorship of the "Third Reich" that ruled Germany in the period between 1933 and 1945, and made racial ideology and the rejection of some ethnicities the basis of its political approach.

According to the Correctiv report, the meeting took place in November, and members of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party and the extremist Identity movement participated.
