The letter, signed Francois Stifani, adds: "I tell them every assistance they need in their projects, as all masons of my obedience does with you. You are the first president with whom we are in complete agreement.
Such a declaration of love for politics is unprecedented from a Masonic organization.
Nicolas Sarkozy meets Francois Stifani, grand master of the GLNF: "The confidence you have shown me and the strong support which you assure me comfort me in my determination to continue the reform movement initiated."

Un collaborateur du leader franc-maçon at-il pu fabriquer la missive à son insu et l'envoyer au président ? A writer for the leading Freemason he could make the letter without his knowledge and send to the president? Mais, dans cette hypothèse, François Stifani aurait dû être surpris que Nicolas Sarkozy le remercie de lui avoir adressé un message de soutien.
