Hamas attack: “LFI has abandoned the values of democracy” supports Gérard Larcher

Since this weekend, political parties have unanimously criticized the Hamas attack in Israel, with the exception of La France Insoumise, which was sharply criticized for its ambiguous position. Invited this Wednesday by La Grande interview Europe 1-CNews, the President of the Senate Gérard Larcher estimated that the party founded by Jean-Luc Mélenchon had “left the values of democracy”.
France Insoumise is still in turmoil. Invited this Wednesday on La Grande interview Europe 1-Cnews, Gérard Larcher, president of the Republicans of the Senate, strongly criticized the positions of the party founded by Jean-Luc Mélenchon, on the Hamas attack in Israel. “I think that La France Insoumise has abandoned the values of democracy and the Republic,” he maintained. Since Saturday, LFI has refused to clearly criticize terrorist acts, placing the responsibility on the far-right government of Benjamin Netanyahu.

Marine Le Pen is part of “the ramparts”

This Tuesday, Mathilde Panot, president of the La France Insoumise deputies, again refused to qualify Hamas as a terrorist organization: “it is the armed branch which is today responsible for war crimes”. On this subject, Gérard Larcher is unequivocal. “What would she say this morning when we discover, in these two kibbutzim, crimes against children and against civilians. It is worse than a terrorist act, it is a criminal act which touches the deepest values” , did he declare.

Following these declarations, many political and associative organizations called for the dissolution of the party. This is the case of Republican senator Stéphane Le Rudulier, who also singled out the New Anticapitalist Party (NPA), under investigation by the judicial police for provocation and advocating terrorist acts, Permanent Revolution and the Indigenous of the Republic. In the same camp, Gérard Larcher wants to be more procedural: “We will have to really know and it will be up to the executive to make decisions”. Before emphasizing that “if there are requests to lift parliamentary immunity, I would vote for them if I were a deputy”.

Asked about the position of Marine Le Pen, the head of the National Rally deputies in the National Assembly, on the Hamas attack, he included it in what he calls “ramparts”. “All those who stand today against anti-Semitism and against the war crimes of a terrorist organization, they are bulwarks.”
