French PM leads mass march against anti-Semitism in Paris

Tens of thousands of protesters marched in Paris and across France Tuesday night to protest the surge in anti-Semitic attacks, which the government said was spreading “like poison.” Prime Minister Édouard Philippe led the event in Paris with ministers and lawmakers of other parties. Before the marches, some 80 tombs at a Jewish cemetery in Quatzenheim in Alsace were defaced with swastikas. President Emmanuel Macron held a moment’s silence at the city’s Holocaust memorial. He has condemned the anti-Semitic abuses recurring during the Yellow Vests protests. Last weekend, some of those protesters called the Jewish philosopher and Auschwitz survivor, Alain Finkielkraut, a “dirty Zionist.”

    Dear Jewish community: I know it will seem a novel idea, even a bit “unorthodox”, but have you ever read Deuteronomy 28 or Leviticus 26 and pondered the ultimate root and cause of “antisemitism”? I know, we live in a fallen world, sometimes the good are afflicted, sometimes the evil prosper, but if we can’t depend on the power of Yah, what can we count on? Compare the 2000 years of rabbinic tradition to the 3500 years of Mosaic-Yahwistic tradition. Which looks more promising? Rabbinism may have been a good tool for surviving exile in the nations, but don’t we welcome the end of the exile?

    Who cares. The only lesson from the Holocaust is that it can happen once again anywhere, doesn’t matter what Jewish progressives and reformated are telling you.

    Macron closes his eyes to Sicklamic antisemitism and reflexively and politically blames “the right.” If he cared about Jews and their survival in France and Europe as a whole, then he would stop the glow of endless migration and open borders. If you are importing Jew-hating and civilization-hating people with their own Moh’d-led eternal unalterable rule which contains hate for mankind, then you get thugs with knives and bombs attacking civilians in Moh’d’s name.
