Israel Honored in Paris this Week

French and Israeli flags over the Opera Garnier

If you happened to notice the Israeli flags all over Paris this week, it’s because Israel is the honored guest of the annual Salon du Livre (Book Fair), featuring the latest Israeli authors and their works. Arab publishers at the fair have called for a boycott, which has caused quite a stir in the publishing community.

President Sarkozy gave President Shimon Peres the guided tour of his posh pad on the Champs-Elysées (maybe Carla made cookies), and a tour of the city, including a stop at the Pantheon to honor the memorial to those who helped save Jews from deportation during WWII.
