An Israeli minister has asked the French government to dismiss the "anti-Semite" chief executive of the French telecommunications company Orange over its plans for severing business ties with Israeli mobile firm Partner.
Amid the outrage in Israel over the company’s plan, the regime’s Culture Minister Miri Regev on Thursday issued an appeal for the dismissal of Stephane Richard, the chief executive and chairman of Orange.
“The French government must show zero tolerance for anti-Semitism,” the Israeli minister said.
The latest comments are in line with Israel's policy of labeling its critics as "anti-Semite."
Meanwhile, the top official in Partner said Thursday that he is furious at remarks by Richard regarding the French company’s “intention” to withdraw its brand from the occupied territories.
