Arab Men Beat French Jew on Paris Train

By: JTA

Four unidentified Arab men savagely beat a French Jew in a Paris Metro train, a watchdog organization reported.

The attack happened Sunday as the train was traveling from Nogent Sur Marne to Gare de Lyon, according to the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA.

Two of the attackers held down the 28-year-old victim, who was identified only as A. Levy, while a third strangled him and beat his face, BNVCA said on its website Monday. The report said Levy sustained some injuries but did not specify.

His attackers shouted the Arab word for “Jews” before attacking Levy, who is a religious Jew belonging to the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, the report said. One of them also told him: “Jew, we are going to lay into you, you have no country,” according to the report.

They stopped assaulting Levy after one of the passengers said loudly that the police were coming, according to BNVCA.

The suspected attackers got off the Metro at the Chatelet-les Halles station in the heart of the French capital. Levy stayed on the train and filed a police complaint for aggravated assault at Gare de Lyon, the report said.

On Sunday, the SPCJ monitor unit of the French Jewish community reported in its annual summary that it had recorded 423 anti-Semitic incidents in France during 2013. The figure constitutes a 31-percent decrease over the previous year, but is still eight percent higher than in 2011.

  4. is Obama knows about this?

  5. Haddad mansour there is your chance again to give sweets in Gaza.

  6. Lying Arabs! It’s the same all over the world! It’s not occupation if it’s your home, as Israel is and has always been the home of the Jews , Arabs should just quietly move back east of the Jordan and think themselves lucky that their lying skins have been indulged for so long! There will never be peace because so very many Arabs are full of hate, a hate that has festered under their hateful religion. If it wasn’t Jews then they just turn on each other, they can’t live in peace with anyone!

  7. Jill Rod says:

  10. Jose Bueno says:

    Muslims = New Nazi Organization

  11. Allen Miller says:

    The French willingly put Jews on the trains to Auschwitz during the NAZI occupation.

  12. Roger Froikin says:

    And if you believe official figures for anti-Semitic acts, you are folloing yourselves.

  13. No one attempted to help the young man… because, of course, they were not Jewish and saw no need to get involved.

  14. Alex Bensky says:

    Oddly enough, Roger, right here in the US, despite the Muslims' plaintive cries of discrimination and fear, there are many more incidents of anti-Semitic violence and vandalism than against Muslims.

  15. and no one stopped this? a bunch of cowards!!!!

  16. i wish he learned Krav Maga and opened a can of whoop ass on these punks!
