HORROR FROM HISTORY Chilling echoes of France’s Nazi past as ‘Juden’ graffiti is sprayed on Jewish bakery in Paris
>The word “Juden” – German for Jew – was sprayed in yellow paint on the window of a bagel shop in the city’s 4th arrondissement on Saturday night.
>“An anti-Semitic tag in the middle of Paris,” said France’s Interior Minister, Christophe Castaner, as he reacted to the latest outrage.
>He added: “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 make sure the perpetrator of this outrage is prosecuted. Our pledge – don’t let anything pass.”
>Gilles Abecassis, the owner of the Bagelstein shop on the Ile St Louis said: “We discovered this tag on Saturday morning and it was probably done overnight from Friday to Saturday.”
>This was the day that the Yellow Vests – the social movement threatening President Emmanuel Macron’s government – went on the rampage around Paris for the 13thSaturday in a row.
>They have been associated with a number of anti-Jewish incidents, and are known to number neo-Nazis in their ranks, but there was no immediate evidence linking them with the bagel shop incident.
>The Paris prosecutor's office has now opened an investigation for “aggravated voluntary damage” and “provocation to racial hatred”.
>Far-Right parties in France including the National Rally – which used to be called the National Front – have a history of anti-Semitism, and their members are regularly convicted for crimes including Holocaust denial.
>Ariel Weil, mayor of the 4th arrondissement, said the perpetrators of the latest attack were among those who “were nostalgic for the Third Reich”.
>It was as recently as 1995 that the then conservative president Jacques Chirac finally publically admitted that French police and other authority figures had helped arrest 13,152 Jews on two days – July 16 and 17 1942 – in Paris.
>They included more than 4,000 children, and all were held at the so-called Vel d’Hiv cycle stadium before being talem to camps such as Auschwitz.
Well, I mean, democrats keep screaming about how it's cruel to separate illegal parents from children so wtf do you want?
This certainly could be a self inflicted "hate crime" and given that it's on a fucking bagel shop, not a bank or a media corporation, I wouldn't be surprised.
It is possible that this is an attempt by the jews and the establishment to frame these protests as "anti-Semitic" in order to justify more harsh repression against the people.
Then again, it is also possible that this is a true attempt by an individual to identify jewish businesses in Paris. If so, a bagel shop is hardly worthy of identifying. A better target would be a media corporation, a bank, or a newspaper. These are the tools of repression, not bagels.
In any case, it might be beneficial for French anons to identify jewish owned media corporations and banks in France.
