Quelle Surprise! State censorship fails to protect France’s Jews

Mindy AlterRebel Blogger

“Do something. We are terrified here.” That's the cry - a cri de coeur, really - of a Jew in today's France, a country that cannot seem to control its growing population of angry, violent, Zion-loathing Muslims. Marie Brenner examines the all-too-familiar phenomenon in the August Vanity Fair magazine. Describing a hate-fueled protest that took place in Paris last year, Brenner notes that the Judenhass/Zionhass persists despite efforts to curb it via censorship:

France’s endless demonstrations are a mainstay of the republic, a sacred right rooted in the legacy of Voltaire. But hate speech is a criminal offense - people may express their opinions, but not to the extent of insulting others based on their race, religion, or sex. The protest - against Israel’s Gaza policies - had been banned by the government, fearful of violence, following flare-ups in the preceding weeks. But if the police were to move in too quickly, the riots might continue all summer long - suburbs in flames, mobs in central Paris...

You mean to say that criminalizing hate speech has not succeeded in deescalating the Zionhass? Are you telling me that local authorities, who seem to fear the testy Muslims every bit as much as the Jews do and maybe even more, are inclined to take the path of least resistance, allowing the angry ones to spew and vent in a violent way instead of wading into danger and actually endeavoring to enforce the law?

Does that sound familiar to you, Canadian Jews? If it doesn’t, I’m sorry to say that you haven’t been paying attention to what’s occurring on the ground, right before your eyes.

It's remarkable, isn't it, how quickly "liberté, égalité, fraternité" (or “peace, order and good government”) can evaporate when the population of testy Muslims reaches a critical mass? Alas, by the time that our Canadian immigration gate-keepers figure that out, the anguished cry of the Jew quoted in Brenner's article may well become all-too familiar in this country too - and in both official languages.

Yes I always said that any Muslim that lives by the Quran and lives an Islamist’s way of life, should be illegal in this country. I say this because the Quran and Islam stand against everything we hold dear and close to our chest. Freedom, Rights, Liberty, Justice!!!! We as a country must banned together to stop this incursion of hatred into our country. We must ban all those that teach this hatred to all other groups in their mosques. We must make Islam an illegal ideology in this country. They are going to destroy us from the inside not from the outside and we have already seen this time and time again. We really need to toughen up our immigration laws to weed out those like the Islam followers by making Islam illegal!!!!!

The fact that Mulcair’s Wife, who ran as a candidate for election to this, French Government, with the full backing of her Husband, is alarming. We know where the Mulclair mind set is at. Anti Jewish Pro Muslim, Left Wing Bull. Resign Thomas. You would have been better to take the job that the Conservatives offered You.

It is time for us of other religious persuasions, to stand with our Jewish friends. Because remember, if they come for the Jews, other religions will be next on the list. We must demand an end to muslim immigration. We must demand that the so called ‘hate speech’ laws of this country be enforced inside the mosque. How much more clearly does the vision of a future Canada under the scourge of rampant muslim hatred have to be, before Canadians of all religions take action?

Really good point. Something Canadian’s need to seriously consider.

The French have always been Jew Haters, they are not the only ones. Look at WW2 when half of them became instant Natzi’s,the other half became Communists.

This bodes well for Citizen Mulclair and his Wife. Both of these individuals are in bed with Islam.

I don’t even pretend to understand the Global persecution of the Jews. They are good people . They make excellent Citizens for any Democratic Country. Yes! They really are excellent business people. Good! Isn’t that what every country that actually cares about the bottom line should hope to emulate in their Citizens? Are we all jealous that so few people that have had every obstacle tossed in their way for a few thousand years are STILL here ? They have not accomplished this with the SWORD . Maybe in the early day. Not now. For me—-Judaism is the total opposite of Islam ism. I don’t have to think twice about which ones make great Citizens in Canada.

“That ‘cri de coeur’ was also heard on the German ship St Louis in 1939, sailing away from Halifax …” And let’s not cover up that was a Liberal Gov’t citing “one jew is too many” did this….condemning those people to the death camps. The current Lieberal corps are fascinated by Communist Dictatorships starting with PET, and freely admitted by his son Justin. Nothing has changed.

While all these real problems are continuing, and related ones emerging, our leaders in the West, and even in some of the churches, are declaring the crisis is Global Warming, now referred to as Climate Change, since the Globe is not warming. Talk about seeing but being blind!

I often see stats thrown around about Canada regarding rates of native incarceration vs. overall population, and the U.S. with respect to black and latino crime/incarceration, but France takes first place in the racism category as far as I’m concerned. Did you know Jews make up less than 1 percent of the French population, but even so, they are the target of 51 percent of all racist acts in France? Last year, about 7,500 Jews left France for Israel, and that number doubled to over 15,000 this year. Hmm. I wonder why.

I don’t care about their background or their beef — shouting “MORT AUX JUIFS! MORT AUX JUIFS!” (Death to the Jews) — is a hate crime.Why aren’t these people being arrested???
