480 French Jews Move To Israel

In the middle of the war, 480 French Jews arrive in Israel

Three days after a mob surrounded a Parisian synagogue, trapping worshipers inside and leading to a brawl between pro-Palestinian demonstrators and members of the local Jewish community, hundreds of French immigrants arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport on Wednesday to start new lives in Israel.

Waving flags and chanting “Am Yisrael hai” (the nation of Israel lives), the 430 French olim filed past a sign for a bomb shelter into the Immigration and Absorption Ministry reception area to listen to welcoming speeches and, afterward, to get down to the bureaucratic business of filling out the paperwork to become Israeli citizens.

Many of them will be moving to areas of the country under the heaviest missile fire, including Ashdod and Ashkelon, Jewish Agency officials said. Despite the conflict, however, the immigrants appeared sanguine and unafraid.

The bombing “doesn’t bother me,” immigrant David Zafran explained. “The main thing is to be here.”

“It’s more dangerous for Jews in France,” agreed Jeremy Tawil, a Tel Aviv-bound Parisian. “I am not scared.
There is a God.”

I think that they probably are safer in Israel than in France. First of all, Israel is competent; they are capable of protecting them. And secondly, Israel wants to protect them. The French don’t seem especially interested.

French Antisemites Attack Synagogue In Paris

3 Jews hospitalized, synagogue beseiged.

Dozens of young men protesting Israel’s actions in Gaza briefly besieged a Paris synagogue and clashed with security.

At least three Jews were taken to hospital as a result of the clashes the erupted on Sunday between the protesters and young Jewish men who guarded the Synagogue de la Roquette in Paris, a witness told JTA.

“The attackers splintered off an anti-Israel demonstration and advanced toward the synagogue when it was full,” Alain Azria, a French Jewish journalist who covered the event told JTA.

Azria said that when the men arrived at the synagogue, located at the 11th Arrodissement near Dare de Lyon, there were only five police officers guarding the place. The police blocked the entrance to the synagogue while close to 200 congregants were inside and as the protesters chanted anti-Semitic slogans and hurled objects at the synagogue and its guards, Azria said.

“They were determined to enter and the police did not have enough forces,” he said.

According to Azria, the mob was kept away by men from the SPCJ Jewish security unit, the Jewish Defense League and Beitar, who engaged the attackers in what turned into a street brawl.

“Thank God they were there because the protesters had murder on their minds and it took a while before police reinforcements arrived,” Azria added.

The attack at the Synagogue de la Roquette came on the heels of several anti-Semitic incidents that coincided with Israel’s offensive in Gaza, which began on July 8.

In one attack in Belleville north of the French capital, a firebomb was hurled at a synagogue, causing minor damage. In another attack, a man sprayed pepper spray on the face of a 17-year-old girl.

Does France deserve to be a country? What vile creatures they are. But thinking ahead, shouldn’t the French send all of their graven images (aka art) to the US for safekeeping? They are soon to be overrun by people who destroy art.

Show Restraint, France.

Respect cultural differences.

French authorities say they foiled an Islamic terrorist plot reportedly targeting the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and a nuclear power plant last year.

The revelation comes as the country unveiled new anti-terror rules which included a proposal to ban terror suspects from leaving the country if it is thought they intend to fight abroad, The Telegraph reported.

French authorities revealed they arrested a 29-year-old Algerian butcher living in southern France June 2013, after they found coded messages between him and a high-ranking Al Qaeda member discussing how “to conduct jihad in the place you are currently,” according to Le Parisien.

The suspect, identified in the newspaper report as Ali M, reportedly said he would target French landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and “cultural events that take place in the south of France in which thousands of Christians gather for a month.”

The father of two reportedly had signaled his willingness to travel for training before returning to France to “await your instructions,” the Telegraph reported.

French police say they arrested him a month before he was to travel to Tunisia, and then Algeria for training.

“There are doubtless others on our soil programmed to harm French interests,” French anti-terror judge Marc Trevidic told Le Parisien.

The new legislation, which will be presented in parliament, will also force internet providers to block Islamic hate propaganda, and allow investigators to use pseudonyms while undercover on anti-jihadist sites, The Telegraph reported.

Hmm. Liberte, Fraternite, Egalite. What about the rights of the oppressed? Is it right for France to oppress its Muslim population this way?

Hamburg-sur-Seine

They held a rally in Paris the other day for the three kidnapped Israeli kids. It was attacked, of course.

Yesterday, France; today, Germany:

An 83-year-old German man was assaulted while participating in a rally on Friday in Hamburg to raise awareness for the three abducted Israeli yeshiva students.

The assault was reported by the German Jewish news website Judische Allgemine that quoted Dieter Graumann, the President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, who condemned the attack on Monday.

“The fact that here in Germany such pure hatred of Israel culminates in assaults, is frightening and extremely worrying. We wish the injured a speedy recovery and trust that the authorities quickly identify the perpetrators and hold them accountable,” Graumann was quoted as saying.

The 83-year-old victim who was brought to hospital for treatment was pushed to the ground so violently that he suffered a head-wound and was unable to walk, according to the Judische Allgemeine.

When the victim’s daughter tried to help her father she was also kicked by the counter-demonstrators, according to the report.

To say that Europe has a problem is to state a proposition that is millennia old, and in no need of further proof.

Being Jewish In France

They are bailing.

BTl touched on this below, and I’ve commented previously, but the media is finally covering this a little bit.

Increasing numbers of French Jews are leaving for Israel, citing dim economic prospects and a sense of being caught between an increasingly influential far right and militant Islam. More than 5,000 are on track to leave this year, the most since after the Six-Day War in 1967. [The AP refuses to mention the Jew hatred living in the French Left, but trust me, it's there. - Aggie]

Israel, seeing the influx as a success, is doubling down on its efforts to attract Europeans, planning to dedicate $29 million over two years to bring in new immigrants.

France has the world’s third-largest Jewish population after Israel and the United States – about 500,000, according to rough estimates. The country bans any official documentation of a person’s race, religion or ethnicity in a law with roots in French shame over its collaboration with the Nazis. [The more things change, the more they stay the same... plus ca change, right Frenchie? - Aggie]

Since World War II, France has redoubled efforts to make Jewish families feel welcome. But many say dramatic acts of anti-Semitism coupled with France’s stagnant economy — which includes a 25 percent youth unemployment rate, compared with 11 percent in Israel — make a hard choice easier.

Laurie Levy, 26, left in 2013. A native of the southern city of Toulouse, her departure came after attacks by a French-born Islamic radical on a Jewish school and soldiers left seven people dead, including three children and a rabbi. She has given up on a career in French law and left behind her parents and siblings.

In Tel Aviv, she no longer feels the need to hide the Star of David she wears around her neck. But there are other concerns: Her parents are unlikely to uproot themselves and she worries about their future back in France. They, in turn, worry about her, living alone in a different country.

“Life is beautiful here. You work. You go to the beach. You see your friends. You’re not afraid,” said Levy, who now works at an Israeli design firm. “The irony is that I am more concerned about them than they are about me.”

That she was able to switch fields and find a job is a demonstration of Israel’s economic allure. The country annually welcomes 1,000 French youths for a year abroad and 70 percent of them decide to stay in Israel, according to Ariel Kandel, who runs the Jewish Agency for Israel in Paris.

And then there’s the famous French sense of humor:

“I am not an anti-Semite,” French comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala says with a devilish grin near the start of his hit show at this city’s Théâtre de la Main d’Or.

Then come the Jew jokes.

In front of a packed house, he apes Alain Jakubowicz, a French Jewish leader who calls the humor of Dieudonné tantamount to hate speech. While the comedian skewers Jakubowicz, Stars of David glow on screen and, as the audience guffaws, a soundtrack plays evoking the trains to Nazi death camps. In various other skits, he belittles the Holocaust, then mocks it as a gross exaggeration.

In a country where Jewish leaders are decrying the worst climate of anti-Semitism in decades, Dieudonné, a longtime comedian and erstwhile politician whose attacks on Jews have grown progressively worse, is a sign of the times. French authorities issued an effective ban on his latest show in January for inciting hate. So he reworked the material to get back on stage — cutting, for instance, one joke lamenting the lack of modern-day gas chambers.

Isn’t that hilarious?

But the Afro-French comedian, whose stage name is simply Dieudonné, managed to salvage other bits, including his signature “quenelle” salute. Across Europe, the downward-pointing arm gesture that looks like an inverted Nazi salute has now gone so viral that it has popped up on army bases, in parliaments, at weddings and at professional soccer matches. Neo-Nazis have used it in front of synagogues and Holocaust memorials. Earlier this year, bands of Dieudonné supporters flashed it during a street protest in Paris while shouting, “Jews, out of France!”

“Dieudonné is getting millions of views on his videos on the Internet and is spreading his quenelle,” said Roger Cukierman, president of the Council for Jewish Institutions in France. “Something very worrying is happening in France. This is not a good time for Jews.”

Look at the numbers:

A recent global survey by the New York-based Anti-Defamation League suggested that France now has the highest percentage in Western Europe — 37 percent — of people openly harboring anti-Semitic views. That compares with 8 percent in Britain, 20 percent in Italy and 27 percent in Germany.

Hey, all you libs that refused to visit South Africa during apartheid! Why are you vacationing in France? They are violent animals.

“I walked into my kosher sandwich shop the other day and the owner asked me, ‘Is it time to leave? Are we Nazi Germany yet?’?” said Shimon Samuels, the Paris-based international director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. “We’ve got the National Front in first place. We’ve got Dieudonné, spreading his hate. So I told him, ‘Well, do you really want to be the last to go?’?”

Let’s listen to the children, something that all good Lefties encourage:

“We’ve been thinking about moving for a long time, but the climate was not as dangerous as it is now,” said Alain, 30, a medical equipment specialist who is moving to Israel in July with his wife and three children. He declined to give his last name out of fear for his family’s security.

Sitting at his modest dining-room table in eastern Paris, a set of moving boxes in the next room, he added: “It bothers me because this is not normal; this is not how I remember France when I was growing up.”

Two weeks ago, Alain said, he woke up to find his 13-year-old daughter, Michele, crying. After a recent attack on two Jewish boys not far from her school, she said she was too afraid to join her regular car pool. Instead, she demanded that he take her to school and pick her up, standing guard as she entered and exited each day. He has moved his work schedule around to accommodate her request.

Asked what she was scared of, Michele, an elegant French teenager in a fashionable black skirt and white T-shirt, looked down and said: “I’m afraid that what happened in Toulouse will happen at my school, too. .?.?. I hear what people say about Jews. And I am scared.”

And here’s a personal anecdote, something to help other Americans understand how this feels. My oldest kid attending a Jewish day school for one year. In the early spring, someone left a note threatening to kill the Jewish children. This was in an affluent suburb of Boston. We finished the year but didn’t return. I can guarantee you that Jewish parents in France are completely torn. How difficult it is to lose your language, job, culture, and everything that it familiar to you. But that is so much easier than losing a child.

Ah, France!

Don’t you love those beautiful villages with the old stone buildings and the happy cows munching grass in the green fields? Prefer the wonders of Paris? The fabulous wine? The unending Jew hatred?

This article, which appears in today’s Wall Street Journal, was written by French scholars. Why in the world would a Jewish person ever choose to reside in France? You are not safe, your children are not safe, and your elderly relatives are not safe. What goes on there is barbaric.

I visited France a few months ago, after having avoided Europe since 1999. That was my last trip. What a cesspool:

Just ahead of last month’s European Parliament elections, which saw the rise of far-right and anti-Semitic parties, four people were murdered in the Jewish Museum of Brussels. The shootings underscored that, in addition to political extremism, Europe’s Jews also face the violent threat of jihadists.

Mehdi Nemmouche, a French Muslim, was arrested on suspicion of carrying out the attack. He appears to have been radicalized in prison, and is believed to have fought for Islamist rebels in Syria. Like Mohamed Merah, who murdered three soldiers, three Jewish children and a Rabbi two years ago in France, Mr. Nemmouche appears to have mixed gangsterism with radical Islam, anti-Semitism and hatred of the West.

With roughly 1,000 European fighters like Mr. Nemmouche estimated to be in Syria, European Union officials are working to devise better strategies for combating radicalization and detecting the movements of people to and from Syria.

But Europe’s Jews also face almost daily attacks—both verbal and physical. In France, home to Europe’s largest Jewish community of about 650,000, the situation is particularly severe, with 170 anti-Semitic acts reported by the Paris-based Jewish Community Protection Service (SPCJ) and the French Ministry of the Interior in the first trimester of 2014 alone. According to the French League of Human Rights, nearly 50% of all racist acts in France are anti-Semitic, even though Jews represent only 1% of the population.

In France, The Left, The Right, and the Muslims all join together in their hatred of Jews.

Such attacks take place in the context of an extremely charged public debate. French comedian Dieudonné has managed not only to popularize an openly anti-Semitic discourse, but to forge the most unlikely of alliances. Though his father is from Cameroon, Dieudonné has united behind him individuals from the extreme right such as Alain Soral, a self-described “national-socialiste intellectual,” National Front founder Jean-Marie le Pen and Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson. Meanwhile, Dieudonné’s fan base has deep roots in France’s immigrant communities. Whatever else may divide the likes of Mr. le Pen and Dieudonné’s legions of admirers, they are united by their animosity toward Jews and the Jewish state.

In nearby Belgium, Laurent Louis—until last month a member of parliament—is trying to reproduce Dieudonné’s mass appeal. In early May, Mr. Louis organized a conference to unite French and Belgian anti-Semites, which the Belgian authorities canceled at the last minute.

Government attempts to silence Dieudonné and his followers by prohibiting his shows have failed, largely thanks to the Internet. Dieudonné’s anti-Jewish YouTube diatribes receive millions of viewers within hours of uploading. The authorities can ban events but not sentiments. Take one demonstration in January this year, of some 17,000 people in the streets of Paris. Officially meant as a general anti-government protest, hundreds of participants wound up chanting “Jews out of France” and “the gas chambers were fake.”

Read it all if you can stomach it. And find another lovely spot for a vacation.

Riddle Me This, Descartes

If a potential terrorist aims an AK-47 at Jews and a synagogue, but doesn’t pull the trigger, is he a terrorist?

As France continues to grapple with growing violent anti-Semitism alarming reports suggest a potentially deadly terrorist attack on a Paris synagogue in broad daylight was thwarted at the very last minute on Saturday.

According to French-language JSS News, a pair of unidentified attackers approached the synagogue, located in the French capital’s 20th District, armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and a handgun. According to reports they began aiming their guns at bystanders and the building itself and pretended to open fire, but fled the scene when they saw armed French police officers guarding the synagogue.

Reports say they escaped on a scooter.

No shots were fired, and the incident took place at a time when few worshippers were in the building, but the shocking incident has left the local Jewish community extremely shaken.

In the news biz, if it bleeds it leads. The corollary, I suppose, is: if there’s no shot, we forgot. Silly me, I think dry runs of the slaughter of Jews are newsworthy, if only to alert people to the danger of the real deal. But this is the only English-language account I can find (based entirely on the lone French-language account).

So, whatever happened, I guess it never happened.

It’s On

I guess the title is misleading. It’s been “on” for a long time now. Surely the murder of three (possibly four—two of them Israeli) people in the Brussels Jewish museum reminds us how on it is.

Just another piece of evidence:

Two Jewish men were attacked Saturday night outside a suburban Paris synagogue, just hours after a deadly shooting at the Brussels Jewish Museum in Belgium.

The two men, brothers in their 20s, were heading to an office located in Chaare Tsion Synaogue on Saturday night around 8:30 p.m. They were about 200 meters away from the synagogue when they noticed that they were being followed.

Shortly after, one of the brothers was struck with a metal object. The object that attacked the second brother was not identified.

The attackers fled on foot and by bike.

The French minister of interior, Bernard Cazeneuve, announced on Sunday in a statement that he condemns the act “with the utmost severity.” He instructed all neighborhoods to immediately increase security related to protecting the Jewish community.

Cazeneuve “wishe[d] to reiterate its unwavering determination to fight those who, by their murderous acts or foul words, propagate racism and anti-Semitism and undermine the cohesion that our society needs more than ever.”

Cool. Glad to hear it. Though we’re a little bummed that you have to “reiterate” your “unwavering” determination. After Ilan Halimi, that is. And Toulouse.

Among other incidents across Europe.

Whatever the cause, whatever the reason, it’s on. This has been a public service announcement brought to you by BTL.com.

Leader of African Descent is Unpatriotic

No, not that leader of African descent! (Or not just.)

This leader of African descent:

It all started with a tweet. Following a ceremony commemorating the abolition of slavery, French Justice Minister Christiane Taubira was criticised by fellow politician Geoffroy Boulard for declining to sing the national anthem, La Marseillaise.

Boulard’s tweet says: “Taubira isn’t singing La Marseillaise under the pretext that she doesn’t know the words. Resignation!” This ignited a conversation which trended on Twitter for several days around the hashtag #LaMarseillaise. For some, Christiane Taubira is a controversial figure associated with the radical left, and she was accused of deliberately not singing to make a political point. Others argued that the attack was racially motivated and that Christiane Taubira was being unfairly singled out (she is black and was born in French Guyana).

Taubira herself defended her decision not to sing by telling her Facebook followers, “some occasions are more suitable for contemplation… than stage karaoke”. This didn’t defuse the tension. Instead, the hashtag #karaokedestrade (“stage karaoke”) began trending on Twitter and generated further criticism of Taubira.

Was race a factor in this discussion? “To be black or white is not the problem,” Geoffrey Boulard, the centre-right politician who started the discussion, told BBC Trending. “It’s not a racist tweet. It’s about national identity and national pride.”

In fact, rows about La Marseillaise are nothing new in France. French football players are regularly condemned for not singing along heartily to the anthem. For others, the real problem is the song itself. Written in 1792 to rally French troops battling foreign armies, the refrain includes the phrase “may impure blood water our fields”. The debate was revived on Wednesday when the French actor Lambert Wilson was asked about the most recent controversy. He described the lyrics as “terrible, bloody, racist and xenophobic” and called for them to be changed.

Wilson’s remarks meant the #LaMarseillaise hashtag continued to trend, with many agreeing with his view and others taking offence. One tweet said: “Those trendy liberals can spit as much as they want on #Marseillaise, people are still attached to it and we are in a democracy.”

What’s French for: “Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security.

“I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest. Instead, I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism.”

PS: Obama was right again, as usual. I looked up patriotism in the dictionary, and it really did say “speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security”. Of course, it was the Ayers-Alinsky Unabridged Dictionary for Radicals, Fugitives, and Community Organizers.

PPS:

Ye sons of France, awake to glory,
Hark, hark! what myriads bid you rise!
Your children, wives and white-haired grandsires.
Behold their tears and hear their cries! (repeat)
Shall hateful tyrants, mischiefs breeding,
With hireling hosts, a ruffian band,
Affright and desolate the land,
While peace and liberty lie bleeding?

To arms, to arms, ye brave!
The avenging sword unsheath,
March on, march on!
All hearts resolv’d
On victory or death!

Now, now, the dangerous storm is rolling
Which treacherous kings confederate raise!
The dogs of war, let loose, are howling,
And lo! our fields and cities blaze! (repeat)
alt: And lo! our homes will soon invade!
And shall we basely view the ruin
While lawless force with guilty stride
Spreads desolation far and wide
With crimes and blood his hands embruing?

To arms, to arms, ye brave!…

With luxury and pride surrounded
The vile insatiate despots dare,
Their thirst of power and gold unbounded,
To mete and vend the light and air! (repeat)
Like beasts of burden would they load us,
Like gods would bid their slaves adore,
But man is man, and who is more?
Then shall they longer lash and goad us?

To arms, to arms, ye brave!…

O Liberty, can man resign thee
Once having felt thy generous flame?
Can dungeons, bolts or bars confine thee
Or whips thy noble spirit tame? (repeat)
Too long the world has wept, bewailing
That falsehood’s dagger tyrants wield,
But freedom is our sword and shield,
And all their arts are unavailing.

To arms, to arms, ye brave!…

PPPS: It is a bit “terrible, bloody, racist and xenophobic”, isn’t it? But then, so was the French Revolution.

Boko’s Harem

Fear the hashtag:

African leaders meeting in Paris have agreed to wage “war” on Nigeria’s Boko Haram Islamic militants.

President Hollande of France, who hosted the summit, said regional powers had pledged to share intelligence and co-ordinate action against the group.

The Paris summit brought together President Francois Hollande, Nigeria’s Goodluck Jonathan, and their counterparts from Benin, Cameroon, Niger and Chad.

Afterwards, Mr Hollande said participants had agreed on a “global and regional action plan”.

That’s telling them, Bernie!

Now, I think you need to tell these guys:

As insurgents fired rockets into a busy marketplace in Nigeria’s northeast Saturday, killing as many as 31 people, the military’s control and composure in the volatile region continued to unspool.

The army has spent recent days trying to defuse a budding mutiny in its ranks; it relocated a general after soldiers revolted and fired on their superior inside the barracks.

The rebellious soldiers, already angry that they don’t have the necessary equipment to fight Boko Haram militants, blamed the general for unpopular orders that led to troops being ambushed and killed, a source close to the situation told the Star.

You know what you fellas need? A standard bearer. A modern Joan of Arc to inspire you in battle against the godless heathens:

Not good enough? Doesn’t have the “necessary equipment”? Very well.

Rapid Rise In French Jews Leaving For Israel

Big surprise

The number of French Jews emigrating to Israel rose nearly four-fold in the first quarter of the year and could touch a record in 2014, a Jewish organisation said Monday.

The Jewish Agency for Israel, a global body responsible for the immigration and absorption of Jews into Israel, said 1,407 people left France for Israel between January and March against 353 people a year earlier.

“This phenomenon is speeding up” said Ariel Kandel, the head of the Jewish Agency’s French chapter.

I’ll ask my usual question: Why are there any Jews left in Europe?

Ilan Halimi Could Not Be Reached For Comment

You think Britain is bad (it is—at least its architects, see below—no matter how much I love it), France is worse

A Jewish teacher from Paris told police that three men had assaulted and cursed him in Arabic before drawing a swastika on his chest.

The attack occurred on Thursday night, according to a report by the Drancy-based Bureau for National Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, a watchdog group known as BNVCA.

“They pressed him to the wall and hit his face, around the eyes and on his chest,” the report said. The blows broke his nose and deformed it, according to the report.

“One of the perpetrators opened the victim’s shirt and with a black marker drew a swastika on the man’s bare chest,” BNVCA president Sammy Ghozlan wrote in the BNVCA report.

The victim, who was wearing a kippah at the time of the attack, was identified as K. Richard. He was treated for a broken nose and lacerations on his face on Thursday night.

He told police that the three men who attacked him appeared to be of North African descent and were in their twenties. They cornered him as he was exiting a kosher restaurant on Manin Street in Paris’ 19th arrondissement, near the Gare du Nord train station.

They shouted “Death to the Jews” and called him “Dirty Jew” in French and also shouted insults in Arabic which Richard did not understand, the BNVCA report said.

I believe the Arabic insults were along the lines of “Your architects kill the state and steal the land.” (See post below.)

BNVCA has recorded a spate of anti-Semitic incidents in France in recent weeks.

On Wednesday, the two-year anniversary of the murder of four Jews in Toulouse, the president of the local Jewish community encouraged young Jews to leave France.

Arie Bensemhoun, the community’s president, said young Jews should leave Toulouse because they could not practice Judaism openly and without fear there.

“I won’t deny that, yes, I encourage the younger people to make aliyah [immigrate to Israel] or go elsewhere, where they can thrive in open Judaism, emancipated and without constantly fearing over what tomorrow will bring,” Bensemhoun said.

On March 19, 2012, 23-year-old French-born Islamist Mohammed Merah arrived armed at the Ohr Hatorah Jewish day school in Toulouse, where he killed eight-year-old Miriam Monsonego along with Rabbi Jonathan Sandler and his two sons, Arieh and Gabriel.

Also Wednesday, French Interior Minister Manuel Valls called anti-Zionism “an invitation to anti-Semitism.” He was speaking at a rally in Paris commemorating the four Jews murdered in Toulouse.

That, at least, is indisputable—as Dr. King reminds us:

PS: Who’s Ilan Halimi?
