How French media made Palestinians ‘invisible’ | The Listening Post

France is home to both Europe’s largest community of Jews and its biggest Muslim population so its citizens are more invested in this conflict than most.

The Macron government has been strident about which side it’s on – supporting bans placed on pro-Palestine protests by local authorities – and much of the media have effectively taken the same view.

News outlets owned by conservative billionaires have been peddling Israeli talking points – and weaponising this war, to go after some of their favourite targets: immigrants, Islam and the political left.

The Listening Post’s Meenakshi Ravi reports on some of the factors that feed into the intensity around France’s debate on Israel’s war on Gaza.
