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.
