France’s new leader on record as opposing boycotts

Socialist François Hollande won the French presidential election Sunday, beating incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy in the second and final round of voting.

Just in case anyone was concerned that Hollande may view the issue of boycotts differently than outgoing President Sarkozy, we are happy to share Hollande’s comments on the matter, given in an interview published on 1 May, by the French Jewish news website, in which Mr Hollande said he is “totally opposed” to the boycott of Israeli products which, he added:

“is illegal and does not serve the cause of peace.”


One response to “France’s new leader on record as opposing boycotts

  1. Je suis un peu décue.J’ai retenu François Hollande comme président d’abord parce que je voulais croire ai changement tel qu’il était proposé et à la conception d’un gouvernement irréprochable. Comme je suis déçue de constater que François Hollande va choisir en premier ministre Jean Marc Ayrault, qui n’est clairement pas irréprochable ! Ce monsieur a vraiment était l’objet d’une condamnation à une peine de prison pour acte de favoritisme ! Quelle déception !.
