Response to Riots in France

The following was sent out by a Jewish person who knew
the real story to set the matter straight. I have been
following anti-Semitism in France that has pushed a
large portion of Jewish population to leave that
country. I think that this time their will be no
American liberators to rescue them from their Algerian
Muslim fascist conquerors.

"I AM A JEW...I will not sit back and do nothing."
Nowhere have the flames of anti-Semitism burned more
furiously than in France:
In Lyon, a car was rammed into a synagogue and set on
fire. In Montpellier, the Jewish religious center was
firebombed; so were synagogues in Strasbourg and
Marseilles; so was a Jewish school in Creteil. A
Jewish sports club in Toulouse was attacked with
Molotov cocktails, and on the statue of Alfred Dreyfus
in Paris, the words "Dirty Jew" were painted.

In Bondy, 15 men beat up members of a Jewish football
team with sticks and metal bars. The bus that takes
Jewish children to school in Aubervilliers has been
attacked three times in the last 14 months.

According to the police, metropolitan Paris has seen
10 to 12 anti-Jewish incidents per day since Easter.
Walls in Jewish neighborhoods have been defaced with
slogans proclaiming "Jews to the gas chambers" and
"Death to the Jews."

The weekly journal Le Nouvel Observateur published an
appalling libel: 
It said Israeli soldiers rape Palestinian women, so
that their relatives will kill them to preserve
"family honor."

The French ambassador to Great Britain was not sacked
-- and did not  apologize -- when it was learned that
he had told guests at a London  dinner that the
world's troubles were the fault of "...that shitty
little country, Israel."

"At the start of the 21st century," writes
Pierre-Andre Taguieff, a well-known social scientist,
in a new book, "we are discovering that Jews are once
again select targets of violence. . .
Hatred of the Jews has returned to France." But of
course, it never left.
Not France; not Europe.

Anti-Semitism, the oldest bigotry known to man, has
been a part of European society since time immemorial.
In the aftermath of the Holocaust, open Jew-hatred
became unfashionable; but fashions change, and Europe
is reverting to type.

To be sure, some Europeans are shocked! by the
re-emergence of Jew-hatred all over their continent.
But the more common reaction has  been complacency.
"Stop saying that there is anti-Semitism in France,"
President Jacques Chirac scolded a Jewish editor in
January. "There is no anti-Semitism in France."

French Anti-Semitism: Finally and long overdue, your
people, oppressed and disgraced by hatred and
maliciousness, have achieved justice: now you enjoy
full citizen's rights, but you'll remain Jews
nonetheless." Franz Grillparzer (1791-1872), Austrian

A gunman opened fire on a kosher butcher's shop (and,
of course, the butcher) in Toulouse, France; a Jewish
couple in their 20s were beaten up by five men in
Villeurbanne, France. The woman was pregnant; a Jewish
school was broken into and vandalized in Sarcelles,
France. This was just in the past week.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, from
September 9, 2000, at the start of the intifada,
through November 20, 2001, there were some 330 acts of
anti-Semitism just in and around Paris.! In addition
to literally scores of firebombing of synagogues, just
before Rosh Hashanah, 200 Arabs attacked Jews on the
Champs Elysees. The pace has only picked up since 

In December, a French cinema in Paris refused to allow
a Hanukah showing of Harry Potter to 800 Jewish
children because of French-Palestinian threats (the
threats were confirmed by French police who then went
on to do nothing, not even giving details). It was one
incident in an eventful month when synagogues
continued to be firebombed and a Jewish kindergarten
was vandalized with anti- Semitic graffiti and set

We can understand anti-Semitism among the French
people. There is nothing the French love like their
traditions and, on the question of hating Jews, they
certainly have tradition galore. What, however, can
explain the sometimes muted, sometimes defensively
outraged reaction of French officials? Simple. There
are approximately 5,000,000 to 6,000,000 Muslims
presently living in France and many more arrive daily.
There are only about 600,000 Jews still living in
France. Moreover, France is the number one European
exporter to Iraq, totaling over two billion dollars
per year in exports since 2000. To those who are at a
loss to explain why French elected officials seem
"helpless" to stem the tide of anti-Semitism, I say
that something smells awfully Vichy around here.

So I call on you, whether you are a fellow Jew, a
friend, or merely a person with the capacity and
desire to distinguish decency from depravity, to do,
at least, these three simple things:
First, care enough to stay informed. Don't ever let
yourself become deluded into thinking that this is not
your fight.
Second, boycott France. Only the Arab countries are
more toxically anti-Semitic and, unlike them, France
exports more than just oil and hatred. So boycott
their wines and their perfumes. Boycott their clothes
and their foodstuffs. Boycottt their movies.
Definitely boycott their shores. If we are resolved we
can exert amazing pressure and, whatever else we may
know about the French, we most certainly know that
they are as a cobweb in a hurricane in the face of
well directed pressure.
Third, send this along to your family, your friends,
and your co-workers.
Think of all of the people of good conscience that you
know and let them know that you and the people that
you care about need their help.

The number one best selling book in France is
"September 11: The Frightening Fraud," which argues
that no plane ever hit the Pentagon!
Our only strength is the strength of our community and
there can be no community without communication.

This is really scary stuff. Read it very carefully and
thoroughly. We cannot allow this to continue.
You MUST pass it on to as many people as you know, so
we can curb this hideous anti-Semitic wave.
