VANDALS have desecrated 90 Jewish graves with Swastikas and other Nazi graffiti ahead of marches in France, as thousands prepared to rally against anti-Semitism. French President Emmanuel Macron visited the cemetery today in the village of Quatzenheim, near the city of Strasbourg, following the overnight vandalism. He slammed the crime as "odious" after walking through a gate daubed with a swastika as he entered the graveyard. Mr Macron said: "We will take action, we will use the law to punish" – referring to legislation aimed at fighting anti-Semitism.

Quatzenheim is close to the German border, and during the conflict local … [Read more...] about Thugs scrawl swastikas on gravestones at Jewish cemetery in France just hours before mass rally against anti-Semitism

President Trump touched down in France on Friday and immediately took a shot at President Emmanuel Macron for his recent call for a "European army," calling the idea "very insulting" and renewing pressure on the country to contribute more to NATO. "President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russia," Trump tweeted.
