I am not an historian, decent author or a journalist, and the chances are that unless there is a link or reference to somewhere else, the perpetrator is yours truly – Renaud Sarda. I created this blog as a focal point, to arm people with arguments and facts that they can perhaps use to counter biased media reporting and anti-Israel propaganda, and to help counter (BDS) campaign. I am a Zionist/Sephardi/Jew who will fly the Israeli flag, and defend whatever Israel does.

Israeli flag projected on Paris’ city hall in solidarity with terror attack victims
(JTA) – An image of the Israeli flag will be projected on Paris’ city hall to show solidarity with the victims of a terrorist attack in Jerusalem, the mayor of the French capital said.
Anne Hidalgo announced the initiative Tuesday following expressions of solidarity in Berlin, where the Israeli flag was projected on the Brandenburg Gate, and Rotterdam, whose city flew the Israeli flag at half mast.
In the attack Sunday, a Palestinian terrorist plowed his truck through a crowd of Israeli soldiers in eastern Jerusalem, killing four and wounding at least 15 others. Similar attacks occurred in July in Nice, France and last month in Berlin.
“Tonight at 7.30 p.m., the Hotel de Ville of Paris will be illuminated with the colors of Israel in a tribute to the victims of the attack in Jerusalem,” Hidalgo wrote on Twitter.
The American Jewish Committee’s Paris office thanked Hidalgo, a liberal politician from the ruling Socialist Party, for the initiative, calling it on Twitter “a gesture of solidarity against terrorism.”
