Mak­ing do

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

Me­lanie Phillips is no doubt right to be scep­ti­cal about Macron whose be­liefs are open to ques­tion. He is a politi­cian who rather un­sur­pris­ingly tells his au­di­ence what it wants to hear.

But a few points to pon­der. It is hardly sur­pris­ing that Mus­lims were en­cour­aged to vote for him rather than Le Pen. A more fun­da­men­tal ques­tion is: who would Phillips pre­fer as a bet­ter bet for Jews among world lead­ers? Is there one now and has there been one th­ese last 2,000 years? We have to make do with the notso-bad rather than the ideal.
