Posted on 02/24/2008 9:18:56 AM PST by Nachum
I received this post from a friend in NY. One of his friends is living in France and posted this to him with the request that Andy distribute it to his American friends.
Andy prefaces with: "Once again, the real news in France is conveniently not being reported as it should. To give you an idea of what's going on in France where there are now between 8 and 10 million Muslims and about 600,000 Jews, here is an email that came from a Jew living in France.
"Will the world say nothing - again - as it did in Hitler's time? He writes, "I AM A JEW -- therefore I am forwarding this to everyone on all my e-mail lists. I will not sit back and do nothing." Nowhere have the flames of anti-Semitism burned more furiously than in France : In Lyon, a car was rammed into a synagogue and set on fire. In Montpellier , the Jewish religious center was firebombed; so were synagogues in Strasbourg and Marseilles ; so was a Jewish school in Creteil - all recently. A Jewish sports club in Toulouse was attacked with Molotov cocktails, and on the statue of Alfred Dreyfus in Paris , the words "Dirty Jew" were painted. In Bondy, 15 men beat up members of a Jewish football team with sticks and metal bars. The bus that takes Jewish children to school in Aubervilliers has been attacked three times in the last 14 months. "According to the Police, metropolitan Paris has seen 10 to 12 anti-Jewish incidents PER DAY in the past 30 days. Walls in Jewish neighborhoods have been defaced with slogans proclaiming "Jews to the gas chambers" and "Death to the Jews." A gunman opened fire on a kosher butcher's shop (and, of course, the butcher) in Toulouse , France ; a Jewish couple in their 20's were beaten up by five men in Villeurbanne , France The woman was pregnant; a Jewish school was broken into and vandalized in Sarcelles , France . This was just in the past week. "So I call on you, whether you are a fellow Jew, a friend, or merely a person with the capacity and desire to distinguish decency from depravity, to do, at least, these three simple things:
"First, care enough to stay informed. Don't ever let yourself become deluded into thinking that this is not your fight. I remind you of what Pastor Neimoller said in World War II: "First they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up, because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me".
Second, boycott France and French products. Only the Arab countries are more toxically anti-Semitic and, unlike them, France exports more than just oil and hatred. So boycott their wines and their perfumes. Boycott their clothes and their food products. Boycott their movies. Definitely boycott their shores. If we are resolved we can exert amazing pressure and, whatever else we may know about the French, we most certainly know that they are like a cobweb in a hurricane in the face of well-directed pressure.
Third, send this along to your family, your friends, and your co-workers. Think of all of the people of good conscience that you know and let them know that you and the people that you care about need their help. The number one best selling book in France is...."September 11: The Frightening Fraud," which argues that no plane ever hit the Pentagon. Please Pass This On, Let's not let history repeat itself, thank-you foryour time and consideration.
Get out of France....now!!
The Churches are next.
Good job. I wish all americans were as knowledgable as you.
This is alarming. Still, this is the same France that elected the pro-American, pro-Israel Nicholas Sarkozy as their leader. So maybe it’s not hopeless.
All material from World Net Daily must be excerpted and linked.
One must also realize that Islam is killing Christians on a daily basis in many countries around the world, and I expect it to start, unless something is done, in the EU very soon. Have they not already started in Holland and Denmark and the UK? So it is just not Jews but Christians as well who must stand up for their freedom and safety.
May those who understand history come forward and save us all.
A (stupid) college student told me so.
Correction of typos, sorry:
History is repeating itself! IMO, World War III is brewing as it did in the early 1930s. Only fools, morons, aka, Liberals and RINOs are ignoring it. Americans better awake from their stupor and see that war for our survival is coming. This upcoming election and its rhetoric is not a good sign that Americans are willing to accept the truth of our impending peril.
Economic downturn in Europe + big government =
Europe is already lost; her fate is sealed!
And the rev Franklin Graham was put down for calling Islam what it is...the false religion.
Out of this religion will come the beast and the anti-christ. He will be from the old Greek-Assyrian area and will gain his power in the old Media Persian area.
And therefore was made a new nation- By the People, for the People.
This protestant has no qualms defending Catholics and Jews. Them and communists in America have been benefiting from my M16 for almost 3 years now.
Who’s doin’ this in France? Is it Frenchies, or muzzies? If it’s muzzies, there’s no reason to boycott France, unless it’s to get their law enforcement in gear.
Scares the heck out of me. Obama must not win!
How many times will we ask the Jews to run?
...reprisals are the answer!
The very one
Comity between nations; free trade: these are anathema to to a super-nation of racial and religious warriors. When they want, they shall take...or force the subservient to provide, upon pain of death.
This prelude to world war bodes a much worse human conflict on the horizon than occurred in history, ever. The agents and citizens of this rising monster are embedded around the globe...in nearly every nation. Not sympathizers , as in WWII; adherents, racially and religiously aligned, in numbers that constitute armies. When the war comes, the front will be every city where they reside. Their loyalty is to Islam and Allah. They march to the orders of the strongest component of the organization: Wahhabism. They have plenty of money, and little regard for life. And , worse, Islam is assisted, at every moment, by liberal thinkers and outright socialists and communists, in Islam's mission to destroy and conquer....they have a common enemy. And both are advantaged by the destruction. The two parties will fight it out when freedom and trade are gone. Each will enslave whomever is left....conscripting armies for the battle.
There is nothing that will stop this. Momentum. Critical mass. Check.
How many Muslims in France?? Denmark?? US?? HAHAHA.
Stick a fork in Western Civ. Good as gone.
Not only, and Ben surmised we would, have we lost our particular republic; but free governments in free nations have allowed a known murderer and molester to rent the extra bedroom in the house.
Can I hear a DUH!!! Thankah...thankaberrymuh.
Well, except for the UN

Getting out isn’t good enough. Gun down the Jew-haters in the streets. Enough is enough.
I don't believe Europe is lost. There is hell to pay in the future however. I think Europe will eventually win through.
It was an email. I linked to an old article merely to post the letter. The post is the letter/email.
Hey those Muslims are the people that will be making my nation safer.
They have just been awarded 48% of the second largest Air Force Project in US history.
More blog stuff than real “news” I guess.
There is for sure a high level of antisemitism in France but why does France have one of the largest jews population in the world?
French jews, like from any other place, are free to move to Israel. The vast majority has decided to stay, so the “Hitler” thing may be a little bit exagerated.
The state of Florida alone reports more antisemite incidents than a country like France.
“The article you posted is nearly a year old. I forgot when Sarkozy assumed office, but would you know if the situation in France has improved or gotten worse under his leadership?”
Sarkozy has now the same popularity rate as GW Bush in the US.
Most French think they were tricked by his words.
Just words and no action! That’s France ... and Sarko as well!
Largest? Yes, they are the third "largest" with a whopping 3.8% of the world's Jews living in France. Almost half of the French Jews there now are historically new to the country. They ran to France after the 1967 "Six Day War" from countries that would have persecuted them or murdered them if they stayed.
The number of physical attacks against Jews, including children and adolescents, doubled compared to 2005. These events include vicious murders and brutal beatings.
French Jews, like from any other place, are free to move to Israel. The vast majority has decided to stay, so the Hitler thing may be a little bit exaggerated
And they do leave, more now than since WWII. Since the latest wave of Jew-hatred, the numbers of Jews leaving France have increased at least 6 fold. I know a number of French Jews too. They left France for exactly these reasons. So, not so exaggerated at all.
The state of Florida alone reports more antisemitic incidents than a country like France.
A total of 179 incidents were reported across Florida in 2006, with 142 incidents of harassment and 37 incidents of vandalism. In France, in 2006 there were a documented 594 anti-Semitic incidents in 2006. The number of physical attacks against Jews, including children and adolescents, doubled compared to 2005. And- these attacks included vicious murders and gang beatings.
Florida- not quite...
