"A Jewish state has no meaning because a state is neither Jewish nor Catholic." -Nicolas Sarkozy

(Paris, France)—French President Nicolas Sarkozy has elaborated on a quote attributed to him following the release of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit in which he claims, "There is no Jewish state."

Nicolas SarkozyAsked by a Jewish radio host about a "Jewish state," Sarkozy replied, "A Jewish state—I don't know what that means. Speaking of a state of the Jewish people is already more interesting. A Jewish state has no meaning because a state is neither Jewish nor Catholic," and, he added, Israel cannot be defined as Jewish any more than "this table is Catholic." (INN Photo)

As reported in Israel National News, Sarkozy was raised Roman Catholic but his grandfather was Jewish.

According to the report, "His remarks reflect an international view that denies that the United Nations recognition of Israel as a country in 1947 actually is the re-establishment of the ancient state that existed for approximately 1,000 years."

The report also noted that Sarkozy expressed views "shared by many people who support Jews when they are down-trodden."

"Frankly," said Sarkozy, "I prefer to be on the side of those who are victims of anti-Semitic abuse than those who profess these kinds of [anti-Semitic] behaviors.
