French PM Warns: France is Facing Violent ‘New Form of Anti-Semitism’

49

France’s prime minister, Edouard Philippe, said his country is facing an utterly new level of anti-Semitism that is marked by violence and brutality.

He made the remarks in context of discussing the assault of an 8-year-old boy who was wearing a Jewish skullcap when he was attacked.

The attack was denounced by France President Emmanuel Macron:

Authorities believe the incident was rooted in religious discrimination.

Ynet News has more of Philippe’s comments:

France is facing a “new form of anti-Semitism” marked by violence, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said Wednesday, deploring an assault this week in a Paris suburb on an eight-year-old boy wearing a Jewish skullcap.

President Emmanuel Macron has denounced the attack Monday in Sarcelles, a northern suburb with a large Jewish population, as “heinous.”

Two teenagers beat the boy up in the northern Paris suburb of Sarcelles on Tuesday, in what prosecutors said appeared to be attack motivated by the child’s religion.

It is the latest in a string of assaults that has worried France’s large Jewish community, coming three weeks after a kosher supermarket in the Paris suburbs was gutted in a suspected arson attack.

Prosecutors said the two youths attacked the boy while he was on his way to after-school tutoring on Tuesday, pushing him to the ground and then beating him. Police were investigating but there have been no arrests.

Sarcelles, nicknamed “Little Jerusalem” due to its large Jewish population, was rocked by anti-Jewish violence during the 2014 war in Gaza.

Several shops were set on fire or vandalized, including a kosher grocery.

Speaking before lawmakers, Philippe noted the emergence of a new kind of anti-Semitism in France, which has the largest Jewish population in Western Europe.

To fight something, one must have “the courage to put a name on it … to acknowledge that, yes, there is a new form of anti-Semitism, violent and brutal, emerging more and more openly in our land,” Philippe said.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb and Jewish leaders say the number of anti-Semitic acts in France has risen this month after a drop in previous years.
