- In the antisemitic climate that France has known for several weeks, we can unfortunately register this new act, committed on a contemporary work of art, in Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges, in Haute-Garonne.

Thus the sculpture "The three beautiful balloons" by Philippe Berry, exhibited on the north terrace of the cathedral of Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges, has been degraded by swastikas, Stars of David and the question "WHO?".

The slogan "Mais Qui?" appeared following an interview with Daniel Delawarde, by the CNews channel, last June. He is one of the signatories of a column evoking the "disintegration" of France published by the far-right weekly "Valeurs contemporaine". To the question "who controls the" media pack? ", he replied" the community that you know well ", implying the Jewish community, before being cut by the presenter Jean-Marc Morandini.

The Haute-Garonne Departmental Council, owner of the vandalized work of art, filed a complaint.
