Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I never considered that Marianne was on the left... Le Monde ceased to be so, progressivement, over the past couple of decades. Liberation is hardly any better, and fairly lightweight on foreign policy, so barely worth reading.

I have no problem with the Israeli ambassador having a regular column in a publication -- journalisme d'opinion is great, everything is transparent.
What I object to is having his opinions relayed by a supposedly objective journalist.

Marianne is supposed to reflect the Republican ideals of France -  liberté, égalité, fraternité

it does a pretty good job, except with regards to Israel
