One Jew Not Welcome In France

Jacque Chirac is trying to snub Ariel Sharon after the latter urged French Jews to leave France immediately:

Chirac had written that "after some weeks of contacts concerning such a visit it turns out that it is impossible ... and you are not welcome following your comments," [...]

Sharon sparked anger in Paris with a speech on Sunday in which he urged all French Jews to move immediately to Israel in order to escape what he called the "spread of the wildest anti-Semitism".

This has an aspect of the old "you can't quit, you're fired" joke.
