“We played a real role”and this is no longer the case according to him, which complicates the possibility of finding “a peaceful solution to the conflict” current situation between Israel and Hamas, knowing that “national unity” of France seems “impossible”he criticizes, evoking in particular the controversial remarks of certain parties such as the Insoumis. “France no longer has a particular voice, neither with Israel, nor with the legitimate, peaceful Palestinian authorities”snapped the deputy from the Somme.

Reconnect with French diplomacy

The elected RN pleads to reconnect with “a traditional French diplomacy defending a humanist vision of the situation in the Middle East, guaranteeing the right of the Israeli people to defend themselves”. In the eyes of the deputy chairman of the RN group, “since the end of Jacques Chirac’s mandate, the policy followed by Mr. Sarkozy, Mr. Hollande and Mr. Macron has moved away from France’s traditional positions to align itself much more clearly with American positions.”

The MP displays his total solidarity with Israel, believing “proportionate” the Israeli response to the surprise Hamas attack. “For the moment, it seems proportionate to what the Israeli people have suffered with the heaviness of the attacks and the seriousness of the attacks”he developed.

“Civilians as human shields”

Israel has announced a war to destroy Hamas’s capabilities, relentlessly shelling the Gaza Strip and deploying tens of thousands of troops around the Palestinian enclave and on its northern border with Lebanon. According to him, “Hamas uses civilians as human shields and this makes the interventions of democratic armies extremely complicated,” he stressed, denouncing in passing the “Gaza Strip hostage situation” by the Palestinian Islamist movement.

Some 2.3 million Palestinians live in the Gaza Strip, which has been under Israeli blockade since 2007, when Hamas took power. The opportunity for Jean-Philippe Tanguy to recall that Marine Le Pen proposed “that the international community finds a temporary reception solution to provide relief” the Gazans. “These people are doomed to return very quickly to their homes and where they live”he assured.

The United States also indicated “to work” with Israel and Egypt to allow the exit of civilians from Gaza.
