Stand down, Israel! French President Emmanuel Macron says it’s time:

From the Jerusalem Post:
French President Emmanuel Macron told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone call on Tuesday that he condemned the violence in Gaza, a day after dozens of Palestinian protesters were killed by Israeli troops.
“He expressed his very deep concern about the situation in Gaza, condemned the violence and underlined the importance of protecting civilian populations and of the right to protest peacefully,” the Elysee said in a statement.
No need to Francosplain this to us. Just let me know when the peaceful part begins. https://t.co/YGvn2R12CS

Yep. We’re waiting.
And then PM Netanyahu had to explain the meaning of the word, “peaceful” to the nice fellow from France.

Too bad they didn't use it.

When will they start this “peaceful protest”?

Except @EmmanuelMacron they aren't peaceful. That is the keyword here.

Everyone agreed with that. Does Macron think the protests have been peaceful? Should Israel let tens of thousands through the fence and figure it out later?

If Macron thinks that is considered “peaceful,” I would hate to see what he considers to be a “violent” protest.

Are these pictures of a peaceful protest? Has the definition of peaceful changed? pic.twitter.com/12qmsUtr8X

Nobody in Israel have denied Palestinians to protest PEACEFULLY. @PresidentMacron : Terror kites, side-triad bombs, knife, rocks and infiltrating the border isn't PEACEFUL. Or do you accept the propaganda version of Hamas?

Did the definition of peaceful change overnight?
Because I didn’t think throwing Molotov cocktails & improvised explosive devices & grenades were part of it. https://t.co/eODwIbarsC
