Group says anti-Semitic acts soar in France in '09

From AP:

PARIS – A group founded to protect France's Jewish community says anti-Semitic acts in France soared 75 percent last year — many coming as Israel pressed an offensive against Hamas in the Middle East in January.

The Jewish Community Protection Service tallied 832 anti-Semitic acts in 2009, up from 474 a year earlier. Most involved graffiti and threatening gestures; about 17 percent involved vandalism and violence.

The group said Wednesday that 354 took place in January 2009 alone, when Israel ended a three-week offensive against Palestinian militant group Hamas in response to rocket attacks from Gaza.

France is home to western Europe's largest communities of Muslims and Jews. Flare-ups of anti-Semitic acts have often coincided with Mideast violence.

Notice you never hear of the opposite happening. You never hear of Jews attacking Muslims after a suicide bombing, a rocket attack on a private home, or an attack on a border guard.

Never.

Amen Pastorius, Nor do you hear of Americans attacking Muslims after the many terrorist attacks we experience here and are "certain" to experience.

That's because the overwhelming majority of Jews aren't indoctrinated barbarians whose minds have yet to venture outside the realm of the 7th century.

Mighty Like A Rose,
I remember only one attack on a Muslim by an American; and it was mistakenly aimed at a Sikh (not Muslim) in Phoenix in the days after 9/11.

You are right, Americans don't attack Muslims when Muslims attack Americans.

But, if Americans attacked Muslims, well ...

I would imagine our good will will only last so long, however.

The Sikh shooting was sad. But that there weren't more outbursts speaks volumes. 9/11 was pretty shocking.

And ... let's not forget the Muslim young woman who said her Islamic headscarf was "tugged" at in the supermarket after the Ft. Hood shootings. Apparently, there were no witnesses to corroborate her charges though. But CAIR still filed some sort of hate crime complaint.

In "While Europe Slept," Bawer talks about how they often fabricate situations of victimhood and will actually go pro-actively file a report with the police based on false allegations, often in an effort to obfuscate situations in which they were the instigators of an altercation.
