A year ago we saw this story from paris
I’m in Paris.
I had seen these videos where you shout “Death to the Jews” in the streets of Paris. But the truth is that with a video, we not went well even when that reality.
So when I came completely by chance, Republic Square in the middle of the afternoon, and I saw this pro-Palestinian rally, I first paid attention to me … But I wanted to see from close.
I do not have enough peace of mind to write as it should. It’s too hot.
– Death to the Jews
– Ashkenazi Death to!
– Hitler was right
– We’ll burn you
– white Sales!
– Hamas Resistance!
– Jihad! Jihad! Jihad!
– Palestine must finish the job (note: started by Hitler)
Where are the police?
…And in the streets, scooters reversed. Police remains speechless. Jews who lock themselves in synagogues.
Here is a glimpse of some video:
At the time Elder of Ziyon said
The attack on the synagogue has been denounced by politicians in France, but the real problem of huge numbers of Muslims who have no desire to act in a lawful manner, and who can be easily whipped up into a pogrom, does not seem to be a high priority for the French police.
Seven months later we saw this:
A gunman who would later say he was acting on behalf of the Islamic State walked into her neighborhood’s kosher market and opened fire, launching a siege that would leave four hostages dead — all of them Jewish.
two month later Jeffrey Goldberg in a Piece at the Atlantic wrote asking if it was time for Jews to leave Europe wrote:
France’s 475,000 Jews represent less than 1 percent of the country’s population. Yet last year, according to the French Interior Ministry, 51 percent of all racist attacks targeted Jews. The statistics in other countries, including Great Britain, are similarly dismal. In 2014, Jews in Europe were murdered, raped, beaten, stalked, chased, harassed, spat on, and insulted for being Jewish. Sale Juif—“dirty Jew”—rang in the streets, as did “Death to the Jews,” and “Jews to the gas.”
as for 2015?
The number of anti-Semitic attacks recorded in France during the first quarter of 2015 increased by 84 percent over the corresponding period last year, a watchdog group said.
The SPCJ security service (Service de Protection de la Communauté Juive) of France’s Jewish communities released the figures Monday in a quarterly report that counted 508 anti-Semitic acts recorded between January and May.
I think the Jews in France need to arm themselves or leave. I’d suggest coming here, at least you can defend yourselves legally, but…
We saw it in the manifestation of UCLA and it was one kid. But it was worse in Stanford. When the Jewish girl in Stanford, who wants to be a rabbi, cleansed her Facebook and removed her (expressions of) support of Israel, in the United States, that’s scary to me. That’s like Jews taking off their kippa in the streets of Paris, and here it’s in the US. I have a feeling that Jewish kids, and I’m (also) looking at it in high school, feel intimidated.
If you are a Jew and are not free to be openly Jewish for fear of your safety you’re not free.
All of what is done here is only made possible by you.
My goal for 2015 is Twenty Two grand which will give me a nominal living doing this.
That gets all the bills paid. (including my writers like Fausta) If I can get to Forty Thousand I can afford to travel outside of New England and/or hire me a blogger to help me get it done.
