Israel’s foreign minister arrived in France on Tuesday for a two-day trip hastily arranged in response to an anti-Semitic arson. Silvan Shalom was to hold talks with his French counterpart, Michel Barnier, as well as Interior Minister Dominique de Villepin and Jewish officials. The Israeli Embassy in Paris said Shalom likely would visit the site of Sunday’s arson, which destroyed a social center for the elderly, on Wednesday.
