Israeli President Moshe Katsav said he is worried by anti-Semitism in France. In an interview published in Le Monde on Saturday, Katsav said he is “concerned that Jews don’t feel free to walk in the street solely because they are Jews.” However, he said he is “able to see the determination of French authorities” to fight anti-Semitism. Katsav begins a four-day state visit to France on Monday, the first by an Israeli president in 18 years.
