UN ‘Special Rappoteur’ Justifies October 7 Terror Attack; Israel Wants Her Fired

The United Nations’ “Special Rapporteur” on human rights for Palestinians justified the October 7 terror assault on Saturday, saying that it was a response to Israeli oppression.

In a submit on X, previously referred to as Twitter, Francesca Albanese objected to French President Emmanuel Macron expressing sympathy for the victims. She wrote (translated from French by Google): “The ‘greatest anti-Semitic massacre of our century’? No, Mr. @EmmanuelMacron. The victims of 7/10 were not killed because of their Judaism, but in response to Israel’s oppression. France & the international community did nothing to prevent it. My respects to the victims.”

In response, the French authorities stated (translated by Google): “The October 7 massacre is the largest anti-Semitic massacre of the 21st century. Disputing it is a mistake. Seeming to justify it, by including the name of the United Nations, is a shame. These comments are all the more scandalous since the fight against anti-Semitism and all forms of racism are at the heart of the founding of the UN.”

As the Times of Israel noted, Israel’s overseas minister, Israel Katz, known as for Albanese to be fired:

As Breitbart News has reported, Albanese has a protracted historical past of antisemitic statements, in addition to radical anti-Israel statements.
