Act of vandalism against a synagogue in Toulouse
Paris, January 6, 2009
President Sarkozy utterly condemns yesterday’s act of vandalism perpetrated against a synagogue in Toulouse and asks the police and judicial authorities to use every means at their disposal to ensure the perpetrators are arrested and severely punished.
President Sarkozy holds that our country will not tolerate international tension leading to sectarian violence. National unity, solidarity between all the French and France’s foreign residents, around France’s diplomatic efforts to contribute to the quest for fair and balanced solutions, is the only possible response and only attitude worthy of our country in the tragic circumstances the Middle East is enduring./.
