Statist (socialist Lefty/Righty) Jew haters have their latent antisemitism supercharged with the latest new comers, Muslim settlers…
It may be too late to defeat French Islamic anti-Semitism
The old anti-Semitism of the extreme Right joined the anti-Semitism of the radical Left, which has found anti-Zionism as the alibi for transforming the executioners of Jews to victims in society.
The writer, an Italian journalist with Il Foglio, writes a twice-weekly column for Arutz Sheva. He is the author of the book “A New Shoah”, that researched the personal stories of Israel’s terror victims, published by Encounter and of “J’Accuse: the Vatican Against Israel” published by Mantua Books.. His writing has appeared in publications, such as the Wall Street Journal, Frontpage and Commentary.
“Anti-Semitism is not the business of the Jews. It’s the business of all of us. The French, who have demonstrated their democratic maturity after each Islamist attack, are living through a tragic paradox. Their country has become the arena for murderous anti-Semitism”.
This is the beginning of the toughest and most important position taken so far by the French public opinion against the “new anti-Semitism”. The appeal, published in Le Parisien and signed by 250 public figures, comes after the last murder with an anti-Semitic background, the one in which Mireille Knoll was stabbed to death:
“When a Prime Minister at the National Assembly declares, to the applause of the whole country, that France without the Jews is no longer France, it is not a phrase of consolation but a solemn warning: our European history, in particularly the French one, for geographic, religious, philosophical and juridical reasons, is deeply linked to various cultures among which Jewish thought is decisive. In recent times, 11 Jews have been killed in France by radical Islamists because they were Jewish”.
