"Our public space is secular and we keep religion to ourselves," answered one of the participants in the discussion.

Cohen replied that "My name is Cohen, I come from Israel. Why should I keep my religion to myself?"

Cohen added that "if a priest or the Pope comes here, will you also tell him to take down the cross?"

Prof. Cohen said in a conversation with "Israel Today" that "I was invited to the program because I am interviewed about the corona virus for many French channels. We talked for 40 minutes about the corona virus and the vaccine and then at the end I was asked about my kippa. The question was also raised by the reporter sitting next to me that she is Jewish, but I did not feel that I'm attacked - I'm on good terms with them."
