Stephane Richard, head of French Telecom giant Orange, has come to Israel to
surrender meet with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, following his disgraceful comments about Israel.
Note Netanyahu’s demeanor. He would rather be anywhere else with someone he can stand the sight of. Or perhaps go medieval France on his ass. But he realizes it is important to have his “guest” apologize for his statements.
As for the French Richard, he can’t quite apologize. Instead, he “regrets deeply this controversy.” Not his statements. the controversy. He would rather no-one made a big deal out of them. Then he wouldn’t he standing here, in front of all those cameras, expressing regret in front of someone he also clearly cannot stand the sight of.
