- The head of French Friends of Israel's Likud Party admitted
staging anti-Semitic phone calls to himself.
- Alex Moise received a two-month suspended sentence and
a $1,000 fine from a Paris court Thursday for giving a false statement
and for wasting the court's time. Moise filed a complaint in January 
claiming he had received anti-Semitic phone calls and threats but later
admitted that he himself had made the calls.
- Describing Moise as a "friend and a serious worker
for the community," Sammy Ghozlan, president of the Bureau For Vigilance
Against Anti-Semitism, told JTA he is "shocked that a community leader
would do something like this in the current climate."
