IN CASE THERE WAS ANY DOUBT IN YOUR MIND WHERE FRANCE STANDS . . .

You might have missed it. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir made the comment that Jews control the world. This was made at an Islamic summit in Malaysia yesterday. Not a big surprise, right? You wouldn't expect them to embrace Jews or Israel.

OK, fast forward to today in Brussels. The EU leaders were having their own summit and an official communique was drafted, harshly condemning Mahathir's statements. But, surprise, Jacques Chirac insisted the language be deleted from the official statement.

It's one thing for France to block efforts in the mid east, it's another for them to look the other way as anti-Semitic violence increases in their country. But, when many world leaders issue condemnations, but France refuse to, it couldn't be any clearer that they obviously agree with Mahathir's point of view.
