Clashes outside French far-right leader's rally

21 Avril 2017

The Vel' d'Hiv Roundup was named after a velodrome stadium where 13,000 Jews were rounded up in July 1942, with a population that also came from the so-called "free zone".

She added: "I think that generally speaking if there are people responsible, it's those who were in power at the time. It is not France". Marine Le Pen kicked her father out of the National Front in August 2015 as part of an ongoing rebranding and image softening for the party.

Following both unexpected events, "Brexit" and the election of U.S. president Donald Trump, Le Pen seeks to restructure "France's affairs" - by the time two-third of the French voters didn't make their final decision.

Israel's Foreign Ministry on Monday said far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen "contradicted historical truth" when she said that her country was not responsible for the rounding up of Jews during the Holocaust.

Israel has slammed Marine Le Pen after the French presidential candidate claimed her country was not responsible for the roundup of Jews during World War Two.

And he repeated his accusation after Marine Le Pen's latest comments, telling CNN affiliate BFM TV: "Some had forgotten that Marine Le Pen is the daughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen".

Le Pen's estranged father founded the far-right National Front in 1972 and has been repeatedly convicted for racist and anti-Semitic comments, such as calling the Holocaust a "detail of history".

The CRIF Jewish umbrella organization and the president of the UEJF students' union, Sacha Ghozlan, accused Le Pen of historical "revisionism". They clashed with Le Pen's security team, throwing punches and firing teargas, prompting the evacuation of the hall, the newspaper said.

This one isn't for all the marbles, but it's for so many marbles that the fun is probably over if it's not a victor . Chicago is 3-3 in six all-time postseason games vs. the Predators at Bridgestone Arena. "Tough game last night".

Le Pen later specified in a written statement that she "considers that France and the Republic were in London" during the war and that the Vichy regime that collaborated with the Nazis "wasn't France".

"It is not France", she said in an interview with media groups Le Figaro, RTL and LCI.

Polls have for weeks shown Le Pen and Macron topping first-round voting and qualifying for the May 7 run-off that Macron is predicted to win easily.

French hard-left presidential candidate, Jean-Luc Melenchon, speaks during a campaign rally in Marseille's Old Port, southern France, Sunday, April 9, 2017. Almost 38,000 Jews had been deported to Auschwitz from France by the end of September 1942.

Polls show National Front candidate Le Pen and centrist independent Macron in a dead hit at around 25 percent heading into the first round on April 23.

Socialist candidate Benoit Hamon said there was no longer any doubt that Le Pen was from the extreme right.

Her telegenic niece Marion Marechal-Le Pen made a rare television appearance to deny reports of differences and tensions in the family, which led to speculation this week she might quit.
