Macron calls for renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at Holocaust service

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyah opposes the ceasefire agreement in Southern Syria reached between the USA and Russian Federation - which affects areas near the Golan - that went into effect last week, Israeli media reported Sunday.

Netanyahu said that although the agreement seeks to keep Iran 12 miles from the Israeli border, it does not deal with Teheran's plans to further entrench its presence in Syria, including the establishment of both a naval and air force base.

French President Emmanuel Macron said his defense chief has no choice but to agree with what he says, a weekly newspaper reported on Sunday, after his top general criticized spending cuts to this year's budget.

More than 4,000 were children. In the words of Elie Barnavi, France's former ambassador to Israel, the wartime roundup had "nothing to do with Israel". Many were sent on to Auschwitz concentration camp and fewer than 100 people survived.

"Antisemitism did not die with Vichy", Mr Macron said.

Following talks with the Israeli leader at the Elysee Palace, covering Iran and the peace process, Macron said he was ready to lead a push against the threat posed by Hezbollah.

Mr Netanyahu is the first Israeli prime minister to attend the Vel d'Hiv commemorations.

Netanyahu, who is looking to turn a new page with France after resisting attempts led past year by Macron's predecessor Francois Hollande to restart the peace process via an worldwide conference, said Israel and France shared a desire to see "a stable and peaceful Middle-East". "Never again. We will never let it happen again". "It seems that the values of the French Revolution - liberty, equality, fraternity - these values were crushed brutally under the boots of antisemitism".

"Militant Islam wants to destroy our common civilization", Netanyahu told the French president. "They try to destroy us, but also they try to destroy you".

After the ceremony Sunday morning, Netanyahu was due to hold a meeting with President Macron. "Admittedly Vichy was not all of the French", he said, "but it was the government and the administration of France".
