Here follows a translation of Bertrand Renouvin's exposure of the hollowness of the so-called Franco-German couple.

An unacknowledged fragility behind the much vaunted 'German model' has put German interests, indeed those of the European Union in general, in jeopardy.
More carnage in Gaza, with the usual mis-reporting and indifference in the West. Grotesque defense of the massacres by Israel. The criminal state of Israel depends for its impunity and immunity on establishment Jewish institutions internationally.
