A French comedian facing charges for performing an allegedly anti-Semitic sketch on TV is running for the European Parliament. Dieudonne M’Bala M’Bala joined with a group of pro-Palestinian activists heading the Euro-Palestine Party list, which announced it would field candidates for the Paris region in elections next month. At the new party’s launch Wednesday, leaders of the group — which includes a number of well-known Jewish anti-Zionists — said “the State of Israel as it has functioned since 1967 is the vector for a new anti-Semitism.”
