    Doesn't it tell you something about an organization that has Daniel Cohn-Bendit as a member? Are we all supposed to have short memories? In May, 1968, He was a leader of the student Marxist radicals which shut down universities throughout France and nearly toppled De Gaulle. Why is this important? Because Cohn-Bendit and the French intelligentsia have a lot to answer for. It is these "intellectuals" who almost unanimously (Sartre included) approved of the Gulags long after the existence of those terror camps was well known in the West. They stood up for it. They (as only the French can do) rationalized it. They supported Stalin's purges whose early victims were a Who's Who of prominent Jewish Bolsheviks. They knew of the malignant nature of Bolshevism yet they supported it. This is the intellectual coterie to which Cohn-Bendit belongs. So, what does it mean that he declares himself a friend of Israel now? In Europe today anti-semitism, anti-Israel, anti-Zionism is a fetish of the Left. Cohn-Bendit is of a cast of mind that is antithetical to representative democracy; to human rights, to individualism and to common decency.
