Pro-Palestinian protesters storm synagogue in France

posted at 5:21 pm on July 14, 2014 by Allahpundit

Leftover from yesterday’s news but important enough to be posted belatedly. A glimpse at the Ghost of Europe Future from the Ghost of Europe Past?

Pro-Palestinian protesters tried to force their way into a Paris synagogue Sunday with bats and chairs, then fought with security officers who blocked their way, according to police and a witness…

A police spokeswoman said the Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue in eastern Paris was targeted during a service, and worshippers were blocked inside while police pushed protesters back. The spokeswoman said all those inside left safely by Sunday evening.

Aline Le Bail-Kremer watched the incident unfold from her window across the street. She said protesters came from two directions and converged on the synagogue, grabbing chairs from sidewalk cafes and wielding bats as they tried to push past security guards.

There were, reportedly, “dozens” of attackers who peeled off from a larger protest. The police’s presence at the synagogue was initially thin, so men from Jewish groups ended up brawling with the Hamas fans in the street to keep them out of the building while they waited for more cops to arrive. Three people ended up in the hospital; according to a journalist at the scene, the attackers “had murder on their minds.” The clip below supposedly shows a snippet of what it looked like. Here’s a photo, via Twitchy:

The same journalist covered a protest in a Paris suburb the day before and heard people chanting “slaughter the Jews” and “death to the Jews,” which is an … interesting but not altogether uncommon reaction from people who claim to be objecting to some specific Israeli military action. The day before that, a different synagogue in a suburb outside Paris was lightly damaged when someone threw a firebomb at the entrance. All of this is happening in a country where nasty anti-semitism, replete with a crypto-Nazi salute, is quite literally a laughing matter.

The predictable result, albeit only in its earliest stages, is a new Jewish depopulation of Europe:

Ms. Taieb Nizard, 32, a mother of two, says she was punched on the Champs-Élysées by a gang of Muslim girls who called her “dirty Jew.” Last year, she said, a man in her neighborhood on the edge of Paris complained to the police about her sister’s Sukkah, a hut erected to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. She insists that her Orthodox husband wear a baseball cap over his skullcap to avoid harassment. A graduate in management, she was also struggling to find a job.

“I love France, and this is my country, but I am disgusted now,” she said. “In Israel there is an army that will protect us. Here, I can no longer see a future for my children.”…

Last year, 3,288 French Jews emigrated to Israel — a 72 percent increase over 2012. For the first time since 1948, the year Israel was founded, French émigrés surpassed the number of American émigrés. This year, the Jewish Agency says it expects some 5,000 to make aliyah, the Hebrew word for immigration that means “to ascend.” The agency said that while immigration to Israel was stagnating globally, French Jews were the notable exception.

It’s not just Muslims whom they fear; the NYT notes that “far right” parties have more of a foothold in Europe than they did 10 years ago. European Jews may end up caught between the same two monsters that have reduced Jewish populations in Muslim countries to almost nothing, Islamic fanatics on one side and militaristic fascists who promise to keep the jihadis in line on the other. I hear Tel Aviv is lovely this time of year.

AP, you really need to expand and clarify how “far right” in European politics is no where NEAR the same meaning as “far right” in America.

Some who don’t understand the nuances and history won’t understand the major difference between the two and might equate Conservatives in America with the NYT reference to “far right” in Europe.

I’m sure that’s why the NYT did it in the first place, but HA shouldn’t just parrot that lie.

Meople on July 14, 2014 at 5:33 PM

European Jews may end up caught between the same two monsters that have reduced Jewish populations in Muslim countries to almost nothing, Islamic fanatics on one side and militaristic fascists who promise to keep the jihadis in line on the other.

Um, it’s not just Muslims and Neo-Nazis that instill fear in European Jews.

From JPost:

A demonstration in Frankfurt against Operation Protective Edge erupted into violence, with protesters tossing stones at the police.

According to the Frankfurter Rundschau paper, about 2,500 protesters appeared in downtown Frankfurt, screaming “God is great,” and slogans such as “freedom for Palestine” and “children-murderer Israel.”

Eight police officers were injured. One sign at the rally was titled, “You Jews are Beasts.”

German media reported that after the protests, groups sought to locate Jewish institutions. The Frankfurt police said Jewish institutions would be protected. It is unclear if the goal was to attack said institutions.

According to the Rundschau, student organization Left-SDS, Islamists and some members of the Neo-Nazi group National Socialists Rhein-Main attended the anti-Israel protest. Flags from Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Hamas were on display at the protest. Banners compared Prime Minister Netanyahu with Adolf Hitler.

Anti-semitism has never been the sole province of Islamists and Neo-Nazis…

‘Auschwitz meant that six million Jews were killed, and thrown on the waste-heap of Europe, for what they were considered: money-Jews. Finance capital and the banks, the hard core of the system of imperialism and capitalism, had turned the hatred of men against money and exploitation, and against the Jews. . . . Antisemitism is really a hatred of capitalism.’

– Ulrike Meinhof, a left-wing German terrorist of the 1970s, co-founder of the Rote Armee Fraktion and the Baader-Meinhof Gruppe

It really is, and I can almost guarantee that the crowd of protestors waging jihad in the street yesterday did not consist of a majority of entitled middle-class white French college students (as most French protests tend to have), and that the French people were probably not happy about this mob, because they may not like Jews over there, but they hate the Muslims.

And far too many governments (and people) act like the stupid teacher who saves/protects the actual bully from a well deserved @sskicking by punishing the victim for actually fighting back.

Israel has only ever fired back at any of the Muslims AFTER the Muslims started something.

The majority of muslims are illiterate and stupid, and they cannot tolerate the educated, the achievers and the enlightened.

It’s not just Muslims whom they fear; the NYT notes that “far right” parties have more of a foothold in Europe than they did 10 years ago. European Jews may end up caught between the same two monsters that have reduced Jewish populations in Muslim countries to almost nothing, Islamic fanatics on one side and militaristic fascists who promise to keep the jihadis in line on the other. I hear Tel Aviv is lovely this time of year.

The reporters at the NYT must see themselves in the mirror when they see “far right parties” because fascists are leftists.
