Sarkozy in Tel Aviv

An Israeli policeman killed himself Tuesday afternoon at the Tel Aviv airport—just as French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni, were saying their goodbyes to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert before boarding their plane, which suddenly became a quick and urgent exercise.

Sarkozy is committed to selling French modern weaponry to all buyer, this was one of his campaign promise. For this of course you need a market and what better market that the fear mongering government of Israel.

The “terrorists” will no doubt be blamed for it.

Sarkozy is a jew too…don’t forget that.  It’s a real shame he won because now Israel has its tentacles spread deep into France too.  Beautiful country…hopefully they won’t fk it up like they have the US.

I want some sober French man or woman to tell me what the hell is the matter with this Nicolas Sarkozy! Since he’s been elected he’s been touring the Middle East in what seems to be a perpetual honeymoon with his new woman who seems to have replaced the whole nation.

I know France is not the perfect country to allow the luxury for its president to become a perpetual tourist. What about spending sometime at home working on the problems of France?!

And now this trip to Israel of all other places! I guess it’s his second, which makes me suspicious in light of Israel’s reported plans to attack Iran. We know that historically France has its big share of trouble-making in the area during and since the colonial period. People in that part of the world should always remember that it was the French who helped Israel first develop its military nuclear capabilities. The Middle East cannot any more afford or accept to have ex-colonial-neo-colonial powers continue middling in its countries’ affairs for further exploitation and trouble-making.

Diplomacy, good-will and peace-making efforts are always welcomed from any part of the world, but merchants of death and military-industrial complex agents are not and should not be welcomed!

And on the margin of this, I am really interested to know the real story of this Israeli policeman who committed suicide on this occasion! Was it really a suicide or an assassination attempt?! If it was a suicide was it intended to be a protest?! I guess all these things will remain a top secret, unless with some luck the Haaretz manages to get down to the real story!
