after controversial proposals from Meyer Habib, thirty-nine deputies demand the lifting of his parliamentary immunity

Proposals that don’t pass. The left-wing deputies of Trente-neuf, from the environmentalist, socialist and “rebellious” groups, demand, in a specific letter Thursday, December 21, from the President of the National Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, the lifting of parliamentary immunity of their colleague Meyer Habib, who sits within the Les Républicains group, for proposals he made in the Chamber concerning the situation in Gaza.

In question, a sentence pronounced by the deputy of the 8e constituency of French people established outside France (which brings together several countries around the Mediterranean, including Israel and the Palestinian territories) during the government questions session on Tuesday.

“While the minister (Foreign Affairs, Catherine Colonna,) was invited to react to the death of a Quai d’Orsay agent (to the) following (…) Israeli bombings on a residential building housing civilians, MP Meyer Habib distinctly and twice pronounced the words: “And it’s not over! »argue the authors of the letter, who believe that these proposals can “is akin to the apology of war crimes”.

The elected representatives of the Nupes coalition thus ask “a heavy disciplinary penalty” against Mr. Habib, as well as the meeting of the commission responsible for article 26 of the application of the Constitution “so that it examines the lifting of the parliamentary immunity of Mr. Meyer Habib”.

” And it’s not over ! », Launched the MP twice

According to the report of the session, Mr. Habib launched ” And it’s not over ! “, in response to a question from La France insoumise MP Eric Coquerel. “Who can now doubt the real war objectives of the Netanyahu government which, after the north, is bombing the south of the Gaza Strip, precisely where it had asked the Palestinians to take refuge? »the “rebellious” MP asked the minister.

According to the report, Mr. Habib re-pronounced the proposals when Mr. Coquerel asked: “Who can doubt now that it is less a question of eradicating Hamas than of putting an end to the Gaza Strip and the West Bank as Palestinian territories? »

Accustomed to controversial and invective sentences, Meyer Habib reacted by denouncing for his part a “gross manipulation” left-wing deputies. “Their damp squib is only a crude counter-fire to try to forget the repeated apologia for terrorism, the negationism and anti-Semitism at work in their ranks since October 7, but also their silence in the face of pogroms, (to) viols, (to) baby massacres, (of) old men and (of) survivors of the Shoah »he said again.

Since the deadly October 7 attack carried out by Hamas against Israel, the French MP has spoken out more often to defend Israel. A fervent supporter of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, he does not hesitate to deny the existence of Israeli colonization.
