The word “Juden” emblazoned on a Parisien restaurant window, evoking the Nazi persecution of the Jews. What do the French authorities expect: Socialists running true to form, led by the nose while dancing to the tenets of Islam, pander to the old Jew-hate.
The word “Juden!” was spray painted in yellow across the window of a bagel shop in Paris.
The vandalism was discovered on Saturday morning on a Bagelstein shop in the 4thDistrict of Paris.
Many Parisians took to Twitter to express their horror, the French-language Huffington Post reported.
French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner tweeted late Saturday night “An antisemitic tag in the middle of Paris. One too many. ‘Juden’ in yellow letters, as if the most tragic lessons of history no longer enlighten our consciences. Our answer: To do everything to condemn the author of this ignominy. Our honour: Do not let him get away with it.”
Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux called the graffiti “dirty antisemitism in the streets of the city of light . ”
Fourth District Mayor Ariel Weil, who is Jewish, tried to treat the incident with humour, tweeting: “Not offended by some nostalgia of the Reich and Vichy. We enjoy humour, bagels and view. And you?
The managers of the restaurant filed a police report on Saturday, according to LeParisian. Police came immediately to the restaurant in the centre of the capital, according to the report.
Some tried to link the incident to Yellow Vest protesters, who were blamed with setting fire on Saturday to the home of the president of the French National Assembly, and vandalism in front of the National Assembly building. The Yellow Vests began in the fall as a series of protests against a hike on fuel prices but has been mired since in countless instances of violence against police and a substantial amount of antisemitic hate speech.
