Torture and Death of Jew Deepen Fears in France

This is a particularly frightening story - Torture and Death of Jew Deepen Fears in France. Today's New York Times reports on three more attacks on Jews in the Paris suburbs.
The police said two young men, 17 and 18, were attacked late Friday by black and Arab youths in the northern Paris suburb of Sarcelles, home to a large number of Jewish families. The attackers broke the nose of one victim, a rabbi's son, and stole the cellphone of the other.

On Saturday, a 28-year-old Jewish man was beaten in the same suburb by youths who made anti-Semitic remarks. He suffered a dislocated shoulder. Four people are being questioned in the Saturday attack, the police said.


  1. why can't we all be friends????

  2. It would be nice, wouldn't it?

  3. BS"D
    I have never understood why France has been a worse place for Jews more consistently during its history than most other places in Europe. We have similar attitudes, I'm sorry to say, in Quebec.
