Reader Duane has a good name for this: WWJ — Walking While Jewish. That’s something you can’t do in France, these days (and Sweden . . . and a number of other countries where Muslim populations are growing). Oh, and by the way, “North African youths” is yet another euphemism for Muslim guys. But when it comes to Islamic violence, we always gotta couch it with niceties and whitewashing. You know the drill. PC rules.
That Was Then . . .
This Is Now . . .
A 21-year-old man from the city of Villeurbanne in southern France was severely injured last week after being assaulted by two men of North African origin, the European Jewish Press reported Monday.
According to the report, Thursday’s violent incident occurred as the man headed home from a Torah class at the local synagogue.
The two aggressors allegedly approached the man and asked for his name. After hearing his response, the two told him: “You don’t look to be named Antoine, you look Jewish, you are a Jew.”
Hey, it sounds just like the stories my Holocaust survivor grandparents told me of being asked for their papers in Nazi Europe and then being called “Moses” (a name they would call people who “looked” Jewish in Poland). That was just before they and their entire families were shipped off to the death camps.
Local police have launched an investigation. A police source told a French news agency that “the tone heightened between the three youths. There was an exchange of blows and two youths of North African origin took out a gun ball and possibly a truncheon.”
Think the Muslims in the U.S. are any different or in any way unique? Think again. There is no difference, but for their numbers here . . . and that is very quickly changing.
