Paris Anti-Hollande March Turns into Day of Hatred of Jews

By: JTA

A march through Paris against French President Francois Hollande ended with anti-Semitic chants and cries of support for an anti-Semitic comedian.

At least 150 protesters were arrested in the “Day of Anger” demonstrations on Sunday, according to reports. Nineteen police officers were injured in clashes with protesters, one seriously, the French news agency AFP reported. Police estimated that 17,000 participated in the march.

Protesters performed the quenelle, a gesture reminiscent of the Hitler salute that was invented by the anti-Semitic French comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala. They also called for freedom of speech on Dieudonne’s behalf.

Anti-Semitic chants included “Jews go home” and “Jews, France is not your country.”

The Union of French Jewish Students, or UEJF, condemned “anti-Semitic slogans and Nazi salutes” by some protesters, and the group’s president, Sacha Reingewirtz, told AFP, “This Day of Anger has turned into a day of hate.”

  1. This is their true colors..

  2. Gideon Jones says:

    Elena Marcus Alberstone and Michael Hollander,

    If this is the “true colors” or “horrid people” (and I agree) what are most of us doing everyday to protect Jews from this?

    Never Again!?

  4. What do expect from a country who couldn’t defend themselves respectively during WW2, a country of cowards and now Muslims, which is the same as being a coward anyways

  5. Paul Hatgil says:

    Netanyahu tear down the wall.

  6. If you do not enjoy this demonstration, & you should not, make an effort to combat online Jew baiters every other day. All you need to do is show they are really murderous thugs, not at all hard to do. Then everyone sees them for what they are.

  7. James you are right on.

  8. There is a picture of the web of the quenelle salute being done at Michelle Obama’s birthday party.

  9. Hating us is good for it shows that there is emotions towards us even if it is from the negative side…
    the other thing is that we thrive and flourish while you are don't and the only thing left to sustain and keep you vibrant is hate…
    life for Jews in Europe is over so we'll leave you to enjoy with our cousins maybe you'll find them more to your liking… <3

  10. paris was always anti-semitic

  11. Guarentee most of them were Muslim arabs

  12. Gideon Jones, you are absolutely right. (What are we doing to protect Jews?) I am a member of the ZF. I go to some protests. Especially the BDS thugs who hide behind a 'Palestinian' flag. My suggestion is to join protests, get informed. Write to your MP. Write letters (keep the emotion out of letters!) to the press. Do everything you can. We are (again) facing a terrible crisis in our history. This time we have to stand up and face the haters. It is not enough to moan between ourselves, that gets us nowhere. Action! Jews are brave. Think of the Warsaw Ghetto fighters. Think of the IDF. I used to engage with Leftists, but now I don't waste my energy. I write and speak out. I urge all of us to do this.

  13. france. cowards and collaborators. and, anti-american as well.

  14. abe zelcer says:

    So where are the people of France? Why dont we hesr anything from them or for that matter from anyone in the government?

  15. Stanley Roth says:

    All I can say is add French food to the Boycott list and remember to Buycott when it comes to Israeli products

  16. Lea Assuied says:

    I'm so sad for my family still in France…. I can't believe that in this world today we can't find peace.

  17. Are u a member of McNamara's band????
