French children’s magazine Youpi published this in its latest edition. The translation is “We call these 197 countries states, like France, Germany or Algeria. There are a few more, but not all countries in the world agree that they are real countries (for example, the State of Israel or North Korea.)”
Youpi is meant for children ages 5-10.
The French Jewish community was not pleased, and complained to the editor.
As a result, the magazine’s publisher issued an apology:
“We recognize an error, a clumsiness, we obviously did not want to challenge the existence of the State of Israel”, said Pascal Ruffenach, president of the Bayard group that publlshes Youpi.
The magazine will be withdrawn fram being sold today.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
