    Hollande has proven more hostile to Israel than his predecessor, Sarkozy. It's been reported that some 90% of French Jews voted for Sarkozy, while some 90% of French Muslims voted for Hollande - enough to put him over the top. (After his victory, some gathered waving Palestinian and North African flags.) France's Muslims outnumber France's Jews by more than 10 to 1. As to Netanyahu being "obsessed" with Iran, Iran has repeatedly called for "Death to Israel" (and "Death to America" by the way), and used terminology (virus, vermin, cancer, etc.) not heard since the days of the Nazis. I wonder if Hollande thinks France in the 1930s was "obsessed" with Germany.
