Leader of French Far-Right Party Defends Her Father, the Former Leader of the Party, Against Allegations of Antisemitism

FSWC Reports:


The head of the far-right French party the National Front, Marine Le Pen, has downplayed remarks by her father, party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, who told an interviewer that a Jewish singer should be sent to the "oven". Footage of the comments was published on the party's website over the weekend. 

During the interview, Le Pen lashed out at various celebrities, including Madonna, who had criticized the party's achievements in the EU parliamentary elections last month. When the interviewer told Le Pen that one of those critics had been French Jewish singer Patrick Bruel, he replied: "I am not surprised. Next time we should arrange another 'shipment' to the oven".
