Stéphane Jégo, a well-known French chef who has recently been targeted by anti-Israel campaigners, hit back, saying his critics are dishonest and biased.
Jégo responded to the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement who in recent weeks picketed outside his Parisian bistro ‘L’Ami Jean’ and criticized him on social media for his attendance this month at the culinary Round Tables festival taking place in Tel Aviv.
Jégo wrote that the BDS activists “at best misinformed … at worst biased and dishonest.”
The chef also retweeted a remark about BDS being illegal in France, where dozens of the movement’s activists have been convicted of incitement to discrimination due to their actions against Israel.
According to the ‘Electronic Intifada’, a pro-Palestinian media outlet, the Denmark-born head of a restaurant in Bolivia has pulled out of the festival due to the pressure.
