The appointment of Alain Juppe, architect of ZONE TURQUOISE, as France’s new Foreign Minister is a slap in our face, and question’s President Sarkozy’s supposed new policy towards Rwanda.
President Kagame, statemanlike put a foot forward in an attempt to mend relations between France and Rwanda. To now have to deal with a man who not only co-authored the 1994 genocide by assisting Rwanda’s then ramp government takes us a step back. This is the very man who sought to sanitize and prop up a regime that planned and executed a genocide, as highlighted in the MUCYO REPORT.
Juppe’s character is understood through his answer to two questions: did France take sides to aid extremist Hutus against Tutsi, and did France fail to denounce the genocide committed by Hutu extremists in 1994 ? His answer was a loud and sickening “YES.”
But I have faith in Foreign Minister Louis Mushikiwabo to deal with this man of shifty and questionable moral character tactfully, and with a firm hand.
