France’s Supreme Court has confirmed a ruling that promoting a boycott against Israel is tantamount to ‘’inciting hate or discrimination,’’ upholding the convictions and fines on twelve anti-Israel activists.
 
In a statement to the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini urged both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to ''demonstrate with acts'' that their commitment to the two-state solution ''is real and not just fake'' or ''just an empty slogan.''
 
The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the French government that he is ready to meet Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas “anytime and anywhere,’’ in a response to Paris’s attempt to arrange such a meeting in the French capital.
 
Police arrested the assailant, who shouted anti-Semitic epithets at the victims and reportedly was drunk at the time of the attack. /p>
 
Pope Francis welcomed over a hundred leaders of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) on Wednesday and issued a strong condemnation of anti-Semitism. At a private audience with WJC President Ronald S. Lauder in the morning, the pontiff made it clear that outright attacks against Israel’s existence is a form of anti-Semitism.
