Socialist mayor of Paris

"A Palestine solidarity rally that Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo had urged police to ban went ahead on Saturday, but under tight restrictions. A journalist was attacked during the rally by pro-Israel counter demonstrators as police watched and did nothing." "In August 2015 – a year after Israel’s devastating assault on Gaza – Hidalgo’s administration sparked outrage by partnering with Israel for a propaganda stunt to turn part of the Seine river bank into a “Tel Aviv beach.” " (thanks Amir)
