Paris: More Violence Against Jews in the "City of Light"

As reported by Haaretz (http://www.haaretz.com/jewish-world/jewish-world-news/1.604813) yesterday:

"A firebomb was hurled at a synagogue near Paris, part of a string of anti-Semitic incidents in Western Europe coinciding with Israel’s assault on Hamas in Gaza. The firebomb went off Friday night at the entrance to the synagogue of Aulnay-sous-Bois, a northeastern suburb of the French capital, according to the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA. No one was hurt and the fire resulted in minor damage, Le Monde reported.

. . . .

In Belleville, an eastern suburb of Paris, a demonstration Saturday by a few dozen people against Israel’s attack on Hamas featured calls to 'slaughter the Jews,' according to Alain Azria, a French Jewish photojournalist who covered the event. The crowd also chanted 'death to the Jews,' he said."

As reported by The Times of Israel (http://www.timesofisrael.com/clashes-in-paris-as-thousands-march-against-israel-offensive/) yesterday:

"Several thousand demonstrators walked calmly through the streets of Paris behind a large banner that read 'Total Support for the Struggle of the Palestinian People'.

But clashes erupted at the end of the march on Bastille Square, with people throwing projectiles onto a cordon of police who responded with tear gas. The unrest was continuing early Sunday evening.

Media reports said that hundreds of Jews were trapped inside a synagogue in the area and police units were sent to rescue them.

A person in the synagogue told Israel’s Channel 2 news that protesters hurled stones and bricks at the building, 'like it was an intifada.'"

Coverage by The New York Times or CNN? Where?

Jews trapped inside a Paris synagogue? Think about it before you plan your next vacation in France.

  1. Why "cover" it when they will feature an op-ed with an pro-Pal slant soon enough?
