Jewish deputy mayor of Toulouse Aviv Zonabend could be fired after he allegedly said there were “too many Arabs” on an Israeli radio programme.
Mr. Zonabend made his remarks on broadcaster Army Radio last week, which airs in Hebrew, saying that there were “very many, too many” Arabs in Toulouse and far too few Jews, French radio broadcaster France Bleu reports.
Mayor of Toulouse Jean-Luc Moudenc condemned the statement saying it was “intolerable that the dialogue we are cultivating with and between religious communities is trampled”.
Zonabend defended his remarks claiming that his Hebrew language skills were lacking and that he had meant to say there were too many radical Islamic extremists in the country.
