French Minister of the Interior Bernard Cazeneuve banned pro-Palestinian demonstrations, scheduled in Paris tomorrow, to be banned citing the violence that erupted between them and pro-Israeli demonstrators last week.


On Sunday, Paris witnessed marches in support of Palestine. The demonstrations were attended by 30,000 people according to protesters, or 7,000 according to the police, and were marred by clashes between pro-Palestinian protesters and people who came out of a nearby synagogue yielding furniture and weapons which they hurled at the demonstrators.


"I want everyone to show a sense of responsibility, I am the Minister of the Interior and therefore it is my duty to guarantee safety for everyone. I condemned the violent acts that occurred on Sunday," they are "intolerable" and "I cannot have them reoccur" and "take the risk of seeing French people tomorrow exposed to violence," Cazeneuve said
