ANTISEMITES IN FRANCE? C'EST ENCROYABLE!

Are there Muslim anti-semites in La Belle France? Not if you believe the authorities.
Or maybe there are..... just as elsewhere in Europe. But to say so would inflame communal tensions, so better perhaps that a few Jews get whacked than that angry immigrant jugend set Paris afire. 'Tis a small price to pay.


Now, let me direct your attention to the following:

France arrests gang suspected in killing of Parisian Jew
By Assaf Uni, Haaretz Correspondent

PARIS - The French police arrested late Thursday night most of the members of the gang that abducted, tortured and murdered Ilan Halimi, a 23-year-old Jew from Paris. Hundreds of SWAT officers raided apartments in Bagneux and arrested 12 people. Another suspect was arrested in Belgium. "They acted with indescribable cruelty," the judiciary police chief leading the investigation said. "They kept him naked and tied up for weeks. They cut him and in the end poured flammable liquid on him and set him alight."

---[cut]---

But the Paris public prosecutor, Jean-Claude Marin, told Parisian Jewish radio on Thursday that "no element of the current investigation could link this murder to an anti-Semitic declaration or action." The umbrella group of French Jewish secular organizations, CRIF, issued a statement Friday calling on the Jewish community "to keep calm, cautious and wait for developments in the investigation."

A police source said the gang is a group of childhood friends who grew up in Bagneux, a suburb south of Paris. The gang includes Muslims of North African descent and is headed by Youssef Fofana, who has escaped police capture so far.

A source in the Jewish community said the gang's behavior suggested that the motive behind the kidnapping was violence for its own sake, particularly against Jews. "Why didn't they release him when the realized the family couldn't pay ransom?" asked Sami Gazlan, who is responsible for security in the Jewish community. Last Monday, a few days after the kidnappers ended contact with the family, Ilan was found near a suburban train station south of Paris, naked, handcuffed and gagged, with burns covering 80 percent of his body.


FRENCH AUTHORITIES WOULD LIKE TO ERASE ANY SUGGESTION THAT ANTISEMITISM MAY HAVE HAD A ROLE IN THIS... AFTER ALL, ANTISEMITISM DOESN'T EXIST ANYMORE IN CIVILIZED PEACEFUL EUROPE.


NOR WOULD IT LOOK GOOD IF THE NATIVES TOOK A SCUNNER TO IMMIGRANTS BECAUSE OF CERTAIN REGRETABLE TENDENCIES - IT IS ONLY BY ALLOWING IN SO MANY IMMIGRANTS THAT EUROPE CAN ERASE THE STAIN OF INTOLERANCE AND BIGOTRY THAT BLOTS ITS ESCUTCHEON.
[Or at least pretend that they always been liberal and broadminded, not to say humane and tolerant.]


SURELY NATIONS WHICH ARE SO WILLING TO ALLOW THE DISADVANTAGED OF THE EARTH A CHANCE AT FIRST WORLD OPPORTUNITY CANNOT BE ACCUSED OF RACISM?


MAYBE THEY CAN.


Here's an interview with the mother of the murder victim: http://www.primo-europe.org/selection.php?numdoc=Ch-358633130

La mère d’Ilan Halimi, jeune juif parisien de 23 ans qui a été enlevé, torturé et assassiné par un gang dans la banlieue parisienne, accuse la police de manquements qui ont entraîné la mort de son fils.

Elle accuse également la police d’avoir ignoré les motivations antisémites de cette affaire, afin de ne pas s’aliéner la population musulmane.
« Si Ilan n’avait pas été juif, il n’aurait pas été assassiné » affirme-t-elle.


And, from http://www.france-echos.com/actualite.php?cle=8488

Ruth Halimi, la mère d'Ilan, se bat aussi contre la chape de plomb. Les médias ont minimisé l'horreur subie par son fils. Il ne faut pas parler d'antisémitisme. C'est juste un crime crapuleux, pour de l'argent. C'est bien connu, tous les maîtres-chanteurs torturent, mutilent et brûlent leurs victimes qui leur sert de monnaie d'échange ! C'est la thèse officielle.


And from Israel National News
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/news.php3?id=98783

French media reports stated the victim was “tortured to death” as well as being “handcuffed and gagged,” adding he “died en route to hospital.”

While police are unwilling to label the attacks anti-Semitic, local Jewish residents assert that the gang has been targeting Jewish victims since December.


Also: http://www.ejpress.org/article/5845

Judiciary Police Chief Francois Jaspar and general attorney of Paris Jean-Claude Marin said that at least three other similar criminal kidnapping attempts have been reported since last December, but that previous ones have failed. ---[cut]--- Jaspar and Marin did not mention the victim’s Jewish identity or any anti-Semitic aspect in this affair but community security services suspect the kidnappers who tortured the young man may have had anti-Semitic motives.


----- -------------- -----

I would not be so crude as to suggest that the French have not changed since the days of the Dreyfus affair. They are manifestly a different people than they were in that far less enlightened age, and also they have changed much since the regretable events of WWII.

How have they changed?

Well, they're ten percent Muslim at this point. That's a voting bloc that cannot be ignored.
