These organizations remain blindly silent : for them, Muslims are "victims of racism" and therefore cannot be racist.
France is presently prey to one of the worst waves of anti-Semitism in its history ; this wave is not receding, rather, it is intensifying.
According to the annual report published by the Protection Service of the Jewish community, 2011 was a bad year; 2012 will be worse.
Since the killing of three children and a rabbi in the courtyard of a school in Toulouse on March 19 by Mohamed Merah, the number of attacks against Jews has exponentiated.
The vicious assault of three young Jews in Lyon on June 2 by a gang of ten men armed with hammers and iron bars was only the most visible and most obvious act among more than 150 other acts of the same kind in less than three months.
Since then, in just two weeks, dozens of new attacks have occurred. In one of them, an eighty-three year old woman was beaten, raped and left for dead in a Marseilles stairwell.
Most of the victims do not even go to the police: they know only too well that their complaint is likely to be dismissed. The police have orders: the risk of riots is in the mind of all those in authority. These orders are not transmitted in writing, of course ; their existence emerges when the police, angered by the role they are asked to play, organize protests. They are even more angry when they do their job and make arrests, only to see those arrested released by the judge even when the evidence provided is overwhelming. Judges also appear to have orders, also not transmitted in written form: some organize protests, others silently comply.
Those who were arrested may then seek revenge against those who complained -- who will be protected by nobody.
The situation has evolved as successive governments have accepted the existence and growth of no-go zones which are now effectively out of control.
The situation has also evolved as nearly all politicians, left and right, submit to the omnipresence of political correctness. To them, those who commit crimes are not really guilty, but are "victims of society."
Anti-racist organizations are always ready to mobilize against anti-Semitism, but they act and speak as if there were only one form: extreme-right anti-Semitism.
But as anti-Semitic crimes committed in France do not come from the extreme-right, but mostly from the Muslim community, these organizations remain blindly silent ; for them, Muslims are "victims of racism" and therefore cannot be racist.
As the mainstream media are also silent, Muslim anti-Semites feel free to act. And the more time passes, the more they feel free to act. When crimes are not followed by repercussions, criminals acquire a giddy sense of impunity.
Almost no one dare associate the words "Muslim" and "anti-Semite" in France anymore, and those who still do are immediately accused of "Islamophobia" and charged. A law that bears the name of a communist politician -- the "Gayssot law" -- states that any criticism of a religion is a form of discrimination, and criticism of Islam is generally considered to be much worse than discrimination against anything else.
When Muslim anti-Semites, knowing the demonization of Israel that reigns in the country, say they hate Jews because of what Israeli Jews do to "Palestinians," many journalists and "intellectuals" consider that excuse a mitigating circumstance, without even bothering to consider what the Palestinian leadership does to Palestinians -- such as stealing the funds sent to the Palestinian people by gullible Americans and Europeans, throwing Palestinian journalists and any other outspoken citizen in jail wholesale, teaching toddlers to be terrorists, and effectively rejecting all rule of law. And this is the leadership that would like its own state?
When Jewish schools had to be protected before the killings in Toulouse, those killings showed that security measures in place were not sufficient. Jewish shops and restaurants receive daily threats. Every week, windows are smashed or covered with insulting graffiti. Jewish radio stations dare not display their name on their studio doors. Jewish kids are spat upon in the streets.
French Jews feel very isolated and very vulnerable. They now know that simple things can be dangerous: wearing a skullcap in the street, going to the synagogue alone, placing a mezuzah on a door frame.
400,000 Jews live in France today, and the number is decreasing. Two thousand Jews leave the country every year; those who do not leave now know they have no future in France. (Emphasis added)
Six million Muslims live in France today, and their number is increasing. In addition to the risk of riots, the existence of no-go zones and the omnipresence of political correctness, politicians, left and right, know whom they must seduce, flatter, or appease to be elected. (Emphasis added)
Even if Nicolas Sarkozy usually complied with the "Arab policy of France," it did not help him: He was considered a "friend of the Jews".
Polls shows that France's new President, François Hollande received an overwhelming majority of Muslim votes, approximately 94%. On the evening of May 6, he was greeted at Place de la Bastille by a forest of flags of almost every country in the Muslim world. French flags were virtually invisible. Groups of veiled women were there, apparently happy. Any observable signs of Judaism would have been clearly inappropriate. Holding an Israeli flag would have been suicidal.
Although saying that France will soon be a country without Jews would be going too far, it is clear that daily life for Jews in France will become increasingly harsh and unbearable. This is what is happening in France today.
What is happening in France is happens almost every place in Europe: Jew hunting season is open in France and Europe. Even if the hunt lead to the horrors that stained Europe seventy years ago, it will not end any time soon.
An isolated hate crime is an isolated hate crime. But a hate crime followed by another hate crime is the beginning of a series.
When these crimes come in addition to hundreds of less-serious hate crimes, it indicates that this is more than a series. A noxious atmosphere is taking shape.

Maybe things will turn around for the Jews when abortion is unequivocally condemned.
The kind of ignorance displayed by the Swedish bimbo we were talking about last night has a price.
I’m not Jewish, but the Mohammedan is the enemy of Jew and Christian alike. (Along with Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Animists, Shintos and just about everybody else.)
The more things change, the more they stay the same.....
Maybe Abe Foxman can quit worrying about Pat Buchanan's grumbling about AIPAC for five minutes and turn his mind to the accelerating excruciation of the European Jews and the existential threat to the European homeland.
How 'bout that, Abe?
So, after helping to elect Francois Hollande, French Jews would have been too frightened to attend his victory celebration.
I will also speculate that French Jews - like American Jews - strongly oppose private gun ownership.
It's as if they would choose death rather than politically align themselves with Conservatives and Evangelical Christians.
for them, Muslims are “victims of racism” and therefore cannot be racist.
Where have I heard that before?
Incredible. All the vets who died liberating the Frogs from the Nazis and the Frogs turn around and invite in the Islamo-Nazis. I freakin can’t stand the French, apologies to any French freepers, but when I use to work as a waiter, then a taxi driver in New York city, I detested dealing with them. “We don’t believe in tips! Sacre bleu! Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!” If the bill was $4.99 and they gave me a $5 they would demand the penny change the cheap ass bastards and that was after busting my chops the whole time. Eat my shorts Jaquass.
Anyone having doubts about the left climbing into bed with the muslims better think again.
Overseas you get terrorist attacks when the muslims get roused up.
In this country you get terrorist attacks when the blacks get roused up by the left.
It never fails.
Prior to each and every terrorist attack the left always gins up civil unrest.
Trayvon Martin and the planned underwear bombing is just the latest example.
When the underwear bomber turned out to be a double agent, the hoopla over TM died down.
...guess the Jews in France shouldn’t have backed a bunch of no borders Marxists.
Oh well - they can go pay their taxes. The Jew Haters need the money. :)
Ha ha glad I’m not the only one. The French tourists in New York city were the worst, probably still are. Just by them walking in the door of the restuarant and hearing that accent we use to immediately fight over who would serve them because we knew without fail they would bust balls and leave zero for a tip, and they ALWAYS would. Then when I would drive a cab they would fly off the handle if something was not to their liking, like one time I picked up this Frog who didn’t like that my AC wasn’t cool enough for him, so while at a stoplight he slammed open the door right into a brand new BMW and ran away leaving me to deal with the guy driving the BMW.
