‘We take money from Jews to give to the poor’: Family robbed & beaten in Paris
A Jewish family was robbed and beaten in their home by several men in Paris, authorities say. The attackers reportedly told their victims that Jews “have money” and that they planned to give it to “the poor.”
The incident took place in Livry-Gargan, a northeastern suburb of Paris, on Thursday night, according to French media citing local prosecutors.
Three men, “probably of African origin,” broke into the house of Roger Pinto, the president of the France-based SIONA group, which fights anti-Semitism and advocates for the rights of the Jews, the National Bureau for Vigilance against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA) said.
