French Society ‘Under Stress’ From Islamist Terror, Says Jewish Community President

As France marked the third anniversary of the Hyper Cacher supermarket siege in eastern Paris on Tuesday, the head of the country’s Jewish community emphasized that French Jews were no longer isolated in their fear of Islamist terror.

“French society is under stress,” Francis Kalifat — president of CRIF, the French Jewish communal body — told The Algemeiner in a wide-ranging interview.

French Jews continue to feel in the “forefront” of the threats posed by terrorism and religious extremism, Kalifat said — a point brutally underlined as the Hyper Cacher anniversary fell on Tuesday morning, when two adjacent kosher stores in a shopping mall that had been vandalized with swastikas only last week were firebombed – “but the risk is shared by their compatriots.”

      Turd O is Jewish?

    • The lefties you refer to are Jewish only in the loosest sense of that term, their religion is the usual leftist bilge making them no different than than the other 5th columnists of the Liberal left.

        Rubbish. They love their Talmud.

        The Jews are in the driving seat of the liberal Left. The Media, the Banks, the Government, the Fed. Wake the fuck up.

    Apparently, only the uncosseted French can see this
    and the rest turn a blind eye to it.

    I just came across this great clip of Christopher Hitchens putting down a Jihad sympathizer. Great stuff.

    Even the Jews in France admit that their number has been reduced to no more than 435,000. Down from 650,000 fifteen years ago. Jewish existence in France is on a terminal glide path. No more than half of that number will ever leave no matter what happens so we’re talking about how to get 218,000 people to safety over time. That’s a quarter of the Jewish migration from the Maghreb and Mizrahi from 1948-54. It’s not impossible.
