Many comparisons to historical events are hyperbole...Sadly, this is on target...

French Jews are experiencing another Kristallnacht...

France's Jews Flee As Rioters Burn Paris Shops, Attack Synagogue

Quote:
France's politicians and community leaders have criticised the "intolerable" violence against Paris' Jewish community, after a pro-Palestinian rally led to the vandalizing and looting of Jewish businesses and the burning of cars.

It is the third time in a week where pro-Palestinian activists have clashed with the city's Jewish residents. On Sunday, locals reported chats of "Gas the Jews" and "Kill the Jews", as rioters attacked businesses in the Sarcelles district, known as "little Jerusalem".

Manuel Valls, France's prime minister said: “What happened in Sarcelles is intolerable. An attack on a synagogue and on a kosher shop is simply anti-Semitism. Nothing in France can justify this violence.”

Religious leaders gathered for an interfaith service on Monday to call for calm, and Haim Korsia, the chief rabbi of France, and Hassen Chalghoumi, the imam of Drancy shook hands on the steps of the synagogue.

Francois Pupponi, the mayor of Sarcelles, told BFMTV that the violent attacks were carried out by a "horde of savages."

"When you head for the synagogue, when you burn a corner shop because it is Jewish-owned, you are committing an anti-Semitic act," interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters at a press conference at the local synagogue.

Eighteen people were arrested for attacks on shops, including a kosher supermarket, a Jewish-owned chemist and a funeral home. Rioters, who carried batons and threw petrol bombs according to eyewitnesses, were yards from the synagogue when they were driven back by riot police who used tear gas.

“They were shouting: ‘Death to Jews,’ and ‘Slit Jews’ throats’,” David, a Jewish sound engineer told The Times. “It took us back to 1938.”

“We called our town 'Little Jerusalem' because we felt at home here,” Laetitia, a longtime Sarcelles resident, told France 24. “We were safe, there were never any problems. And I just wasn't expecting anything like this. We are very shocked, really very shocked."

Roger Cuikerman, head of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France told Radio France International: "They are not screaming, 'Death to the Israelis' on the streets of Paris. They are screaming, "Death to the Jews." The community was not just scared, but "anguished."

The government had banned a demonstration planned in Paris for Saturday, but posters were seen around the area which said “Come equipped with hammers, fire extinguishers and batons" and promised a "raid on the Jewish district”.

Not even 100years has passed and it begins anew.

I pray for our world and our Jewish brothers.

And yet far to many are in support of the Palestinian cause. And this is just that, no matter how others see it.

Anti Jewish brought to France by those who left the M.E. for a better way of life.

Yet want time to go backwards. Without care for the other French Citizens that surround them.

They are not Nazi's but part of this Terror run amuck in and around Israel.

This is just a big win for Hamas.
How sad for the world that we are again here.

Hamas' Triumph
By Mona Charen July 25, 2014 11:48 am


Hamas, with perhaps unwitting help from President Barack Obama, is achieving its war aim: to legitimize Islamic supremacism and Jew-hatred, and take it global. Jews are no longer safe in Europe or even in some places in the U.S.

Who now recalls that when Hamas was elected, the world responded with disgust? Hamas was on everyone's terrorist list. Flailing, the European Union, Russia, the United Nations and United States asked Hamas to recognize Israel, renounce terror and agree to live by previous agreements between Israel and the Palestinian National Authority. Hamas refused. Nevertheless, its image is much improved.

Hamas enjoys killing Israelis and Jews -- "By God, we will not leave one Jew in Palestine," one of its leaders, Abdel Aziz al-Rantisi, told Al Jazeera -- but thanks to Israel's self-defense, opportunities for that pleasure are limited. Hamas has successfully terrorized southern Israel -- and more recently, central Israel -- with its deliberate missile attacks on civilians, and they take satisfaction in that. But their chief aim and greatest victory is in forcing Israelis to kill Palestinians. It's almost a matter of indifference to Hamas whether a dead child is an Israeli killed by a Hamas rocket deliberately aimed at a village or a Palestinian child killed because Israel returned fire and the launcher was located in a kindergarten. If it's the latter, the child's image becomes part of the psychological war on Israel.

This script has been followed year after year. Elite world opinion seems incapable of seeing the truth -- that every dead Palestinian civilian (and, of course, every Israeli) is a victim of Hamas. Maybe it's just too pleasurable to indulge in guilt-free anti-Semitism. Notice that attacks in Europe have targeted synagogues, not Israeli embassies.

Hamas has been successful at libeling Israel and stirring anti-Semitism globally. Obama ought to speak for our values and forcefully push back against this dark, spreading stain, but he doesn't. He hasn't spoken up for Christians persecuted throughout the world, either.

Rather than denouncing Hamas' depravity, he has issued tepid endorsements of Israel's right to self-defense (undermined by privately delivered warnings). Canada's Stephen Harper, who has lately seemed, by default, the leader of the free world, was stalwart. "It is evident that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region." In light of that, "Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict."

Obama, by contrast, has slid into the role Hamas practically scripted for him, calling the Israeli prime minister twice in three days to express his "serious concern about the growing number of casualties."

It is pretty bad when the Canucks show more solidarity than we do. These animals need to be controlled or eliminated.

We have had a 100% increase in antisemitic incidents reported in the UK in the last three weeks. Sadly because of the most of the media not reporting both sides, but just the Palestinian side in this war, people are not getting the full story, (as in the thread to Israel of the Hamas tunnels, the year after year of attacks by missiles from Gaza to Israel, the random street attacks within Israel by Israeli-Arabs etc). Of course that is not the main reason for these riots and attacks, as they were more than likely done by those looking for a fight and scapegoat anyway.

There are ways where the Jews will fight back. Never Again. I don't think they will put up with that B.S. much longer. Just my opinion.

Once the Jewish Defence League joins in there will be 'war' on the streets. Ah well. Just what the antisemites want. An excuse to vilify the Jews. Hint - don't mess with the JDL.
