Can you understand the complaints in Israel about the "hypocritical" European reaction?
"Certainly. After all, I got a similar reaction during the war in Algeria, when I served in General Massu's 10th division. We were called upon to fight the terrorism of the FLN (the Algerian nationalist movement that fought against French colonialism). The intelligentsia at home criticized our actions. It's very easy to criticize from the armchair in the living room. I completely understand the State of Israel, which is seeking to defend its citizens."
The French. What can you say?

When the mainstream dare not discuss important issues directly, men like Le Pen will thrive.

but I believe it is just a detail in the history of World War II
Out of all the articles so far that I've read about Le Pen's anti-semitism, this is all I've seen of what he's said that documents it. Liberals are on the side of the Palestinians now against the Jews, even marching with them on Hitler's birthday here in the US so liberals have nothing to say anymore about anti-semitism, they've aligned with the worst anti-Jews there are.

The Muslim veil - "It protects us from ugly women."
The main threat to Jews in France comes from the Muslims, not Le Pen. He's opposed to the Muslims and appears to be a potential great ally of the Jews. Their opposition to him looks very self defeating. Some liberal Jews seem to have a death wish.
