Caroline Glick: French Anti-Semitism

Rioters in Paris, July 2014, during the Israeli-Gaza war

In an impassioned address to the French parliament on Tuesday, Prime Minister Manuel Valls gave a stirring denunciation of anti-Semitism, and demanded that his people stop treating it as someone else’s problem.

In his words, “Since Ilan Halimi in 2006… anti-Semitic acts in France have grown to an intolerable degree. The words, the insults, the gestures, the shameful attacks… did not produce the national outrage that our Jewish compatriots expected”…

…Valls words were uplifting. But it is hard to see how they change the basic reality that the Jews of France face.

When all is said and done, it is their necks on the line while humanity’s conscience is merely troubled…

…anti-Semitism in France is systemic. Muslims are the main perpetrators of violence. And they operate in social environments that are at a minimum indifferent to Jewish suffering and victimization. This violence and indifference is abetted by non-Islamic elites

Demography is moving France in a different direction. According to Israeli political scientist Guy Bechor, Marseilles will be the first Western European city with a Muslim majority. The ruling Socialists owe their victory to the Muslim vote. It is hard to see French President François Hollande and his comrades taking actions that could anger that constituency which votes as a bloc…

    As always, Caroline Glick gets to the heart of the matter in a clear manner without mincing words. The future of France is what? More socialism and more Islam?

    Maybe if they started shooting carbecuers there might be fewer carbecues.

      But the French specialty “halal Renault 9 with spicy sauce” is such a delicious treat!

      Such fun the muzzies have! Yay!

    Islamic attacks haven’t enhanced or promoted antisemitism, they merely and once again exposed it. Europeans have always had it like someone who’s a typhoid carrier. This year it’s Islam that’s the excuse for Europe to kill Jews. Just like in the past if was communism, Nazism, socialism, the Catholic church, the crusades or the 30 years war. Next time it will be something else. Until there are no more Jews left in Europe.

      I sadly believe that Islam in Europe will be the straw that broke the haram camel’s back this time. While of course Nazism was devastating to Europe’s Jews, small communities re-established themselves after the war. However, that was when Europe was actually European and at least de-facto Christian, unlike today.

      At the present time, there is no future for Jews in Europe.

      They should all move to Israel, Canada, or the US while they can and before the inevitable bloodshed in the near and distant future.

        No of course not. That’s why Vall’s statements are absolute nonsense. “France w/o Jews is no longer France”? Oh please. That’s been the plan since 1848.

          Not so sure about 1848 or arguably even around the French Revolution in the late 18th century. Nonetheless, Muslim violence towards Jews is at a level never seen before or after the Nazi period in Occupied France.
