Hollande: Israel's New Best Friend? (part 2)

The French president's three-day state visit to Israel may have been planned long in advance, but François Hollande happened to arrive 48 hours before the resumption of crucial talks over Iran's nuclear program. It was Paris last week that balked at a deal, hence the enthusiastic red carpet treatment from his hosts. Come Wednesday, will Paris still be standing firm? And, as a nation that's home to both Europe's largest Jewish and Arab populations, what are the complexities of France's position?

  • Samuel GHILES MEILHAC, French Political Science Institute Sciences Po;
