Facebook Page Publishing Identities of French Jews to Encourage Attackers; 15 Men Assault a Jew in Paris Suburb After Confirming Photo (UPDATE)
A violent mob of more than a dozen men in France assaulted a Jew at his home in a Paris suburb after confirming that his photograph had been published by a French Facebook page identifying Jews to be targeted for physical intimidation, The Union of Jewish Students of France, the UEJF, said in a statement on Friday.
The Facebook page, Jeunes Révolutionnaires Français, JRF, or Young French Revolutionaries, posted the names and photos of 32 Jews. The assault on one of those listed took place on Thursday night in Bobigny, Seine-Saint-Denis, a Paris suburb. The assailants were armed with iron bars.
On the Secret Tel Aviv Facebook page, Daniel Cohen called the group anti-Semitic, and exhorted Facebook users to report the JRF page to site administrators for removal.
On Facebook, Cohen wrote, An anti-Semitic page is publishing names and pictures of French Jews in order to target them physically! A few have already been attacked at their homes, one last night by 15 people on one Jewish guy. We need to remove this page!
The JRF captioned its page with the photos of the Jews to be targeted, Smile, youre caught! JRF watches! # AntiLDJ, referring to the LDJ, the French initials of the Jewish Defense League, an organization created to teach Jews how to defend themselves from anti-Semitic attacks.
The title page of the groups Facebook presence features a large Palestinian flag and calls for members to attend a rally on Saturday in connection with the international Al Quds Day protests around the world where police are preparing for violence against Jews.
The UEJF condemned the page and provided testimony from the assaulted Jew in Bobigny, according to Frances Le Monde Juif, or The Jewish World on Friday.
The UEJF said three men went to the victims house and asked him, Are you the guy in the photo on Facebook?
They then said they were there to break the Jew and do to him the same as Ilan Halimi, a 23-year-old who was kidnapped and tortured for 24 days by a gang led by Youssouf Fofana, described by The Jewish Chronicle as, the extraordinarily cruel, Paris-born fifth of seven children of immigrants from the Ivory Coast.
Halimi was found naked, handcuffed and bound to a tree near a railway station in February, 2006, and his body had been mutilated. Still alive, he died on the way to hospital. Halimis murder was made into a movie by French Jewish film director Alexandre Arcady entitled, 24 jours: la vérité sur laffaire Ilan Halimi, or 24 Days: The Truth About the Ilan Hamili Affair, inspired by a book with a similar title written by the victims mother, Ruth.
In Bobigny, after they confirmed him to be the Jew in the photo, the three men were joined by 15 more, armed with iron bars, who assaulted the victim, the UEJF said. When another resident in the building appeared, the men fled the scene.
The UEJF said: For several days, many Facebook pages have been created to encourage physical violence against young Jews. Photos were published, with the identities, phone numbers, and contact information. This young man was directly affected by such a Facebook page. It is unacceptable that the Jews are the target of Facebook calls to murder.
The UEJF said it will file a complaint against the administrators of the Facebook page for incitement to racial hatred and incitement to violence.
In the French media, the LDJ has been blamed for calling for a strong reaction by Jews threatened with violence over the past two weeks since Israel began its Operation Protective Edge to stop Hamass rocket fire from Gaza.
But Roger Cukierman, president of the CRIF, the umbrella organization representing the Jewish community in France, told The Daily Beast on Friday that LDJ was not instigating further violence, and those accusations were beside the point.
I am shocked when I hear journalists saying if the De La Roquette synagogue was attacked, it is because of the Jews, Cukierman told The Daily Beast. This is propaganda.
We had eight synagogues being attacked, he said. I am worried about the fact that synagogues are being attacked and not worried about these self-defense groups.

UPDATE: Facebook has removed the Jeunes Révolutionnaires Français page, which was no longer hosted on the social media platform, as of late Friday evening.
A reader of The Algemeiner reported the group to Facebook, which sent him a message to say that it has recognized JRFs credible threat of violence and removed its page.
Facebooks message noted that JRF was informed that its page had been removed, but not told who made the complaint.
Oh Lord judge the wicked and bring their evil plans back on their own heads!
When things settle down in Gaza,the Mossad needs to visit the authors of that page.
“...one last night by 15 people on one Jewish guy”
Hence, the need for 30 round magazines.
Professional tip: Forcing them to wear yellow stars helps a lot.
Don’t wait — dispense Mossad now.
That is down the road. You need to demonize them in the media which helps the average person become immune to the hatred. Then when you force them to wear the yellow star the average person understand why.
Europe never learns. They repeat history and each time think it something new and unique.
Why do liberals do this kind of thing? What do they hope to gain by it?
This can’t be true. We were told that all of the world’s problems would go away once Obama was elected. Huge crowds of Europeans cheered him during the campaign when he was in France ..... or wait.... that was Germany wasn’t it. Never mind.
I was just about to say, who needs yellow stars when you have Facebook.
With the info people put on their Facebook accounts about family and friends, getting targeted thru Facebook means your assailant has most of the info they need to do serious damage. It would be interesting to know if the victim that was assaulted had their Facebook page linked from the list.
This is a two-way street though, and I think the poster of the list will meet an unfortunate end.
It would be a pleasure to see FB implode.
Were the jihadis inspired by the nazis, or the nazis inspired by the jihadis?
Doesn’t matter. Anyone who belongs to either ideology needs to be expelled from civilized countries.
Has Facebook removed the pages since they are good removing Conservative pages. I wonder how they feel about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Were French Jews allowed to be armed, publication of home addresses of Jews could, if certain ‘plans’ were followed, result in the shooting of Muslims so stupid as to take the bait.
Question: Would the shooting of Muslim attackers under such conditions be considered “Hunting over bait”?
Somewhere in hell, Robespierre is smiling
It’s a constant fantasy of the global leftists, the failure of marxist/socialism isn’t that it does not work, it is the failure of not finding the right person to be it’s overlord.
What an opportunity for Jews to conduct a counter ambush. Set up an “easy” target for the thugs, deep inside a building that acts as a roach motel.
The best bet is to knock them out, then strip them naked and leave them in a public place far from where they come from. Maybe nylon strip handcuffed together in embarrassing ways.
The only surprise is that there are any Jews left in France. Who do you need? Ze’ev Jabotinsky to tell you? Get out! We’ve got our own country, right across the Med from Marseilles. You’ll be welcomed there.
