Israeli Culture Minister Miri Regev has called on the French president to fire the chief executive of French telecom giant Orange. Regev issued her appeal on Thursday, a day after Orange’s CEO announced in Cairo that he would like to sever his company’s ties to Israel as soon as possible. He cited the country’s sensitivity to Arab countries.
Regev says French President Francois Hollande should show “zero tolerance” for what she calls anti-Semitism. She also urged Jewish customers of Orange around the world to change carriers.
