A French Clash With The IDF?

Not content to go Jew-hunting at home, French forces stationed in Lebanon are itching for a brawl...with Israel. LGF reports:

Commanders of the French contingent of the United Nations force in Lebanon have warned that they might have to open fire if Israel Air Force warplanes continue their overflights in Lebanon, Defense Minister Amir Peretz told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday.

Peretz said that nevertheless, Israel would continue to patrol the skies over Lebanon as long as United Nations resolution 1701 remained unfilfilled, adding that such operations were critical for the country’s security, especially as the abducted IDF soldiers remain in Hezbollah custody and the transfer of arms continue.
Over the past few days, Peretz said, Israel had gathered clear evidence that Syria was transfering arms and ammunition to Lebanon, meaning that the embargo imposed by UN Resolution 1701 was not being completely enforced.

No surprise here...in fact, back in early September when some were marvelling at the buildup of European forces around Lebanon, and speculating that it might be prelude to an Iranian offensive, your humble blogger noted thusly:

I still don't buy it...and who's to say that France is not intending to more forcefully step into a possible renewed Israeli-Lebanese conflict, given their longstanding colonial roots in that nation? Could their final dhimmitude be achieved by deploying the French armed forces against Israel?

Is it coincidence or by grand Gallic design, that just as mayhem wrought by Muslim youths is breaking out across France, the French government begins to discuss attacking the Jewish state? Appeasers to the end; the spirit of Munich 1938 is alive and well in France, where they would see Israel destroyed (as Czechoslovakia was ), to buy a few more minutes of freedom for themselves.

For trusting the safety of the Israel to the United Nations and to France, Ehud Olmert should face trial as a traitor, not only to his own country, but to the diaspora of Jews worldwide as well. For by weakening his own country -the homeland -the Jewish people may have lost their last safety net in this "enlightened" world that despises them for being....Jews.

I just can't figure the French out. They always seem to do the opposite of the logical thing.
