Les Juifs français sous pression, Isi Leibner

"Most recognize that anti-Semitic forces are gaining strength and influence."

Over the past decade the status of the 500,000-600,000 French Jews, who constitute the third largest Diaspora community, has continued to deteriorate.  This can be attributed to a combination of the dramatic increase in the numbers and power of Islamic extremists, the revival of indigenous anti-Semitism and consistent French support of the Arabs in the Middle East conflict since the Charles de Gaulle era.

In recent years, burgeoning hostility emanating primarily from radical Muslims has led to increasing desecration and bombing of Jewish sites and synagogues, as well as violent altercations on the streets climaxing with the 2006 kidnapping, brutal torture and murder of Ilan Halimi, a young Parisian Jew. Hostility has become so pronounced that Jews are now warned not to wear kippot in public even in central thoroughfares such as the Avenue des Champs Elysees in Paris.

The media is obscenely hostile to Israel. It was French TV in 2000 which initially launched the Muhammad al-Dura blood libel, a fake video manufactured to portray IDF soldiers deliberately killing a young Palestinian boy. It generated enormous waves of global revulsion against the Jewish state and paved the way for the Goldstone Report.

Cet article bien que reflétant une situation préoccupante, est malheureusement trop dramatisé. Les exagérations, telles que "Most Jews are extremely depressed" font partie de la vue caricaturale qu'ont de nombreux israéliens non-francophones de la situation des juifs de France.
Il n'y a pas que nos médias européennes à faire de la désinformation à sensation. Cette forme de discours décrédibilise ce qui aurait pu être une alerte sur la montée des sentiments anti-israéliens et antisémites en France.
