Speaking shortly before being rewarded for her latest show, “The World After”, the comedian said: “We who share the freedom to raise a cry on all the channels in France or to scream our indignations on anything and everything in the stands, I think we should also pay attention to our silences In the hubbub of our easy indignations, the silence, even relative, after October 7, in which 1,200 Israelis were massacred, is deafening.”

“And if it is obvious that we all share the calls for a ceasefire here, how can we be in solidarity with the thousands of civilian deaths in Gaza without also being in solidarity with the Israeli victims? How can we demand a ceasefire from Israel without demanding the release of the Israeli hostages? How can we demand the departure of Netanyahu without demanding that of Hamas?” continued the comedian, applauded for nearly 20 seconds, before concluding: “This silence which accompanies the victims of October 7 and the hostages continue to divide us and hurt all those, Jewish or not, who are committed to human rights. It is up to all of us to break this silence and the solitude of some of those who listen to us in the theater or. elsewhere.”
