Strong French censure of IAF raid on Gaza irks J'lem
Jerusalem on Tuesday rebuffed sharp French criticism of an early-Monday IAF raid on a Hamas police compound near Gaza City that lightly injured a local employee of the French consulate living a few hundred meters from the target.

According to Israels clarification regarding Mondays airstrike, the windows of the home of Majdi Shakoura, a Gaza resident who holds a French passport, were shattered by the blast, and he and another family member were lightly hurt by flying shards.

Thousands of Israelis suffer injuries that are similar or much worse during rocket attacks from Gaza, and they dont draw the same sympathetic remarks from the French that were elicited by this single family, who suffered very light injuries, the official said.

In October, 52 rockets and six mortar shells were fired into Israel. The IDF said it would not tolerate continued rocket fire against Israeli cities and that Hamas would be held responsible for such attacks.

3. More than that
If a French citizen gets hurt, they pitch a hissy fit. How many Israelis have to get hurt for them to even notice.

Perhaps Israel should encourage French passport holders to move to Siderot so France would take those attacks seriously.
