    The face of new Anti Semitism in France In the last forty years tens of thousands of Jews have left France for Israel or to the peripheries of Paris and Lyon where Muslim populations is rapidly rising Across the globe in Islamic countries and in Muslim communities elsewhere Anti Semitism and anti Israel sentiments are increasing largely fueled by Muslin clerics strengthening the Islamic teachings against Jews The uran makes forty three specific references to Children of Israel using the term Yahud for Jews The ur’an teaches Jews as evil and projects them negatively in verses 582; 279; 375 3181; 564; 541;513; 2247; 378; 214; 244; 2109; 3120; 518; 4161; 446; 261; 274; 2100; 579; 5913 14; and 453 Over the course of the past decade France never had less than 400 anti Semitic acts a year including the brutal murder of Ilan Halimi by the “gang of Barbarians” in 2006; and the massacre at the Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse in 2012 Jewish gravestones are routinely defaced and desecrated with swastikas and anti Jewish slogans The northwestern Paris represents a tactical retreat for Jews; It has become a haven for many Jews who say they have faced harassment in areas with growing Muslim populations Ms Galilli a Jewish woman moved to this neighborhood said that they spit when she walked in the neighborhood for wearing a Star of David France has a painful history of anti Semitism with its worst hours coming in the 1930s and during the German occupation in World War II But in recent months journalists and academics have called this “new anti Semitism” and they trace a wave of anti Semitic acts to France’s growing Muslim population For the French government it is touching the country’s rawest political nerves as well as ethnic and religious fault lines They cannot categorize people by race or religious affiliation In the eyes of the law and the French constitution all French citizens are eual Gunther Jikeli a German historian at Indiana University who conducted a study of Muslim anti Semitism in Europe called the phenomenon “blindingly obvious” in his interview with the newspaper Le Monde A manifesto signed by a former president a former prime minister and numerous intellectuals warned of a “silent ethnic purge” a reference to what Mr Fouruet called the “large scale phenomenon” of internal migration The manifesto called on Muslims to renounce what it deemed anti Semitic verses in the uran Author and philosopher Pascal Bruckner said that “For fear of not setting one community against another you wind up hiding things” Routine expression of anti Semitism is also linked to the state of Israel Michel Serfaty a rabbi has led good will bus tours in Muslim communities in France for than 10 years acknowledged an uphill battle “I’ve seen it myself” he said “Day after day the insults and finally people say ‘Right that’s it we’re leaving’ Complicating the matter as it is happening all over the world is that the radical left and liberal feminists align with Muslim community in its expression of antisemitism This is sad for European countries where the political social and economic landscape is rapidly changing The Roman Catholic Church tried to control the lives of Europeans for centuries Now when they are enjoying the freedom of free expression the population is facing an uphill task of fighting the domination of Islam over their livesThe book is very narrative and describes in detail some of the terrorist attacks on Jewish business and Jewish individuals The author analyzes the circumstances that led to the brutal murder of Ilan Halimi by the gang of Barbarians and other cases For a reader interested in the influence of Islam on the growth and nurturing of antisemitism this is uite interesting

    “Marc Weitzmann has given us a blueprint of dangerous religious hatred that harkens to the Holocaust with a promise of terror yet to come”Author Marc Weitzmann is an award winning journalist who has published ten books in France He is a regular contributor to Le Monde’s literary supplement and Tablet MagazineBefore recent outbreaks of violence in France against Jews before Charlie Hebdo and the Bataclan night club attacks author Weitzmann noticed patterns emerging among these attacks against Jews in France He sensed a relationship between apparently random “lone wolf” attacks by the general public and strategic organized attacks by professionally trained terrorists such as from ISIS or Al aeda Yet those groups could hardly be similar One supports open democracy the other mandates Sharia lawThe scope of earlier anti Semitism in Europe including the Nazi genocide of Jews in WWII is not addressed here The author’s focus is concentrated on attacks in recent decadesCould these outbreaks of violence against Jews have presented a harbinger for even murderous attacks against Jews elsewhere including the Argentina Jewish Center attack and the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue massacre Are these orchestrated massacres against Jewish targets about to increase and in varied global locations Can we use such data to predict future acts of terror against JewsAre specific nations such as Saudi Arabia Iran or Pakistan financially supporting the training of terrorists and acts of terror against Jews And if they are employing a deliberate strategy to attack “soft” Jewish targets can there be any safe place for JewsWeitzmann’s excellent book is a stellar focus upon the major influences producing an increase in anti Semitism in France during the past 30 years Thanks to the author’s careful research Hate is than an analysis of recent anti Semitic attacks It has become a signpost signaling where terrorists might strike nextWeitzmann carefully examines the confluence of fluctuating political conditions in France influenced significantly by widespread Muslim immigration in addition to the rise of far right indigenous French political parties such as the National Front These disparate groups express similar anti Semitic values and promise such attacks in the futureThe result has been not just an increase in overall French anti Semitism but repeated murderous attacks against “soft” Jewish targets including a school near Toulouse patrons at the Bataclan theater a Brussels neighborhood shootout and the Charlie Hebdo massacre The tragedy in Mumbai might similarly fit within this type of genocide had the net been cast fartherThe author demonstrates how countless French citizens including populistnationalistic natives and radicalized Muslim immigrants accept and promote tired old discredited lies about Jews such as those presented in the widely debunked Protocols of Zion which they continue to feed their mendacious supportersThis unholy union of Jew haters and Islamic radicals blame Jews throughout time as the source of all of civilization’s troubles but fail to provide any empirical evidence Still many sociologists today believe that the public is only happy when they have people who behave differently to despise That such deceitful groups can summon gullible haters to perform acts of terror against innocent Jewish families or any other type of family is a dangerous sign of catastrophes yet to occur and not just in France The only solution is educationWeitzmann also makes clear his disdain for the political left in France and serves a warning to America about the danger in allowing an unfettered political left to align their values with Islamic extremists It’s hard to say if conservative Western nations would succumb to a surrender to politically embedded or celebrity liberals Still we have been fairly warned and served with notice that we should prepare for devastating attacks especially against Jews The only uestion will be how we respondMuslim immigrants and far right French nationalists make for strange political bedfellows They are disparate groups politically socially and religiously Here we find only one common feature anti Semitism We see a commonality of purpose in which French nationalists and Muslim immigrants eually share in hatred of Jews and in promoting violent acts of punishment against Jews Yet neither group can change present conditions because they represent a small fraction of French society So they resort to attacking “soft” Jewish targets because it is their only viable method of attacking French influence and powerThese disparate groups of French citizens hate all Jews because they have been taught to hate throughout their lives by anti Semitic family members and friends—and they hate Jews as a product of astonishing ignorance jealously and avarice Ironically nowhere within Jewish teaching do we find it advised to hate members of any other religionFrance was a colonial power until the mid 20th century controlling vast areas of the Middle East the far East Vietnam and North Africa Like most colonial powers they were hated by the indigenous populations under their controlWeitzmann traces the actions of Muslim immigrants from French colonial nations like Gambia Chad Mali Togo Sudan Gabon Tunisia Niger Republic of Congo and Cameroon as they assimilated politically into contemporary French society Vast immigration from those lands has pulled France farther toward viewing Jews as a malignancy rather than a social and economic resourceWeitzmann leaves us with significant research to perform and critical decisions to make How can we use the results of this book to help nations defend themselves from anti Semitic attacks by both Islamic extremists and by those within our own societies who hate for widely ignorant nefarious and improbable reasonsThe author attempts to leverage his family’s experiences related to fighting anti Semitism with his general political and social research and useful interviews with key players While a noble effort it falls a little flat due to inadeuate relevancy The influence of the author’s family just did not appear highly germaneIn terms of editing this book would be enhanced with the addition of visual aids including diagrams and links to relevant videos of anti Semitic acts Otherwise the translation and editing appear uite solidNonfiction can almost always be enhanced in uality by the use of varied media In this case photos maps charts drawings and news articles or remnants from events such as the Charlie Hebdo murders the Bataclan Theater tragedy and the Toulouse shooting would bring facts to bear in a way that words and descriptions cannotIs there a connection between the new wave of anti Semitism in France and Europe to violence against Jews in general Could they be part of a new wave of anti Semitism with foreboding global results Do American militia groups and right wing citizens espouse the same anger resentment and commitment to achieve violence against Jews as did the French far right These are the important uestions for future considerationWaves of terror and murder against Jews and Jewish families in France are examined carefully in this excellent book The author’s research is spot on and relevant His writing is swift vital and enlightening Jews are not safe in France and elsewhere today Marc Weitzmann has given us a blueprint of dangerous religious hatred that harkens to the Holocaust with a promise of terror yet to come

    This is a book that I think needed to be written and needs to be read probably than once to fully digest all of the information With the society we live in people change faiths and change the country they live in at a freuent rate be it by choice or out of necessity As usual in an unsettled world or country if we look back in history we can see this the Jews are one of the first people to be targeted for hate Anti Semitism is something that can never be ignored and in this book we can clearly see the rise in France that has occurred What has and continues to occur in France can so easily occur in any other country We have a duty to prevent this and everyone has to stop the hate this book is about France yet it shines the light on the problem as a warning sign for other countries
