Ethnic Cleansing of Jews in France

Meanwhile, back in Paris, a group of 300 thought leaders have declared that French Jews are being ethnically cleansed by radical Islamists. By their lights, nation’s political elites have been largely complicit. 

To my knowledge the American press has ignored the story. We read the account from the Times of London (via Maggie’s Farm):

More than 300 political leaders, intellectuals and celebrities have signed a manifesto claiming that French Jews have fallen victim to a form of ethnic cleansing perpetrated by radical Islamists, amid the indifference of the country’s elite.

Nicolas Sarkozy, the former president, Manuel Valls, the former prime minister, Charles Aznavour, the singer, and GĂ©rard Depardieu, the actor, are among those who have thrown their weight behind the document.

It says that France has become “the theatre of murderous antisemitism” with 11 Jews having been “assassinated” because of their religion since 2006.

“French Jews are 25 times more at risk of being attacked than their Muslim counterparts,” it adds. “Ten per cent of the Jewish citizens of the Paris region . . . have recently been forced to move because they were no longer secure in certain council estates. This is a quiet ethnic cleansing.”

Note the fact, French Jews are 25 times more likely to be attacked than their Muslim counterparts. Presumably, that’s why elites are more concerned with Islamophobia than anti-Semitism.

The signatories claim that the French media has been silent and the French political establishment has merely paid lip service to the problem:

France has Europe’s biggest Jewish community, with more than 500,000 people, and the biggest Muslim population, with about eight million people. More than 3,300 Jews left France for Israel last year, more than from any other western country.

The signatories say that radical Islamists are being allowed to act without restriction by the political establishment in France, thanks in part to the “silence of the media”. In a denunciation reminiscent of the criticism facing Jeremy Corbyn in Britain, the manifesto claims that historical far-right French antisemitism has been joined by that “of a part of the radical left which has found in anti-Zionism an alibi for transforming the executioners of the Jews into the victims of society”.

Why is this happening? Simple, the Muslim population offers far more votes than the Jewish population. It’s the democracy, stupid:

Politicians have made the “lowly electoral calculation that the Muslim vote is ten times bigger than the Jewish vote”, they say.

I can easily imagine a France without millions of Muslims but I don’t see how France continues to be France if Jews are forced to leave.
