French police arrested six Jews they believe staged vigilante attacks against suspected antisemites.

The attacks allegedly occurred on Dec. 21 in Lyon and Dec. 22 in nearby Villeurbanne, and are believed to have been perpetrated by members of France’s Jewish Defense League, or Ligue de Defense Juive (LDJ), the local branch of JDL, founded the late Rabbi Meir Kahane ZTL.

The targets were discovered on social networks and tracked down for performing the “quenelle,” a gesture conceived by the antisemitic comedian and Holocaust denier Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, the Le Progres daily reported.

 On Tuesday, LDJ wrote on its Twitter account: “Two major punitive actions were carried out Saturday and Sunday in Lyon against people who performed the quenelle. The little Nazis are no longer at ease!”

According to the Progres, the Dec. 22 attack involved six young members of. The report said they beat a man suspected of performing the quenelle and locked him inside the trunk of a parked car.

The report, which named neither the suspects nor the alleged victim, said two of the six were arrested that night and the remaining four were arrested the following day. Two were remanded to police custody Tuesday on suspicion of an assault, Le Progres reported. The report did not say how badly the targeted man had been hurt.

In recent weeks, the quenelle has been widely discussed in French media because many French Jews see it as another sign of mounting antisemitism in their country.

According to Le Progres, the first attack began late on Dec. 21 and was directed at an employee of the Mama Shelter Hotel in Lyon. A few small teams entered the hotel looking for the employee, who was not named, while their friends stayed outside.

In total, a few dozen men were involved in the incident, witnesses told the newspaper. The hotel’s security agents fought off the intruders and prevented them from attacking the employee. Several dozen guests were briefly evacuated from the hotel, according to the report.

In June, LDJ announced that its “soldiers” had put a young Arab in the hospital, calling it “a rapid and effective response” to the man’s attack on Jews at Saint-Mande, just east of Paris. The announcement drew calls to ban LDJ. As criticism mounted, LDJ retracted the statement and denied any involvement in the violence.

  11. While I have no sympathy for the victims, unfortunately, they have freedom of speech.

  12. Ronny Mol says:

    Not the proper response 4 Jews 2 make. Let's face it, the French and the Muslims HATE the Jews. When will the Jewish establishment in France and around the world help Jews make aliyah. The JDL or the LDJ is too late. There are too many Jew haters to fight against. What is needed is for wealthy Jews around the world and righteous non Jews find ways to get the Jews out of France. Make aliyah. Now for the 2 Jews who have French police records, who is going to hire them?

  13. Didn’t know there was still a JDL operating

    I am usually against vigilante violence, but in this case I make an exception.

  17. Blessings to these brave Jews

  18. Ron Kall says:

    I note it said their are calls to ban the LDJ. Wouldn't be surprised to find it is Jewish groups that are calling for the ban, since there are so many self hating Jews everywhere! Just like Jews world wide fell over each other trying to be the first to condemn Rabbi Meir Kahane who believed that Jews should defend themselves and was murdered in public by an arab and defended by a Jew lawyer(Kunstler) who is dead now and got the arab acquitted. Kahanes' Kach party was banned in Israel as racist!! His party demanded safety for Jews anyway it was necessary! Jews couldn't stand this man standing up for Jews!! A Jewish sickness!

  19. Anonymous says:

    Fighting words and fighting gestures demand fighting.

  20. Yechiel Baum says:

    Diudone – dude – you got locked into a parked car? That is hysterical!

    Clowns in the circus with the same act getting a rousing laughter. Your parents must be proud that you are a clown and nothing of any worth to mankind.

  21. The Guardian says:

    Netanyahu could learn a thing or two about standing up to our enemies from these brave young men.

  22. Jon Marretta says:

    Ron, you are soo right. The worst enemy to the Jewish people are progressive Democrats. The second is liberal Jews.

  23. Jon Marretta says:

    You are wrong! The Jewish people should fight. This is happening all over the world to Christians and Jews!. You do not give up the high ground to the enemy or in time you will have no ground and your backs to the wall.

  24. Douglas Kent says:

    VIVA LA FRANCE!

  25. Adam Schmidt says:

    What? We can't fight back? Good for them! Take back Europe!!

  26. Douglas Mills says:

    . "אם אין אני לי, מי יהיה בשבילי?

  27. Well said and all true. Fight, fight, fight…there is no excuse for being a coward and 'the world' does not forgive cowards…nor do I!

  28. Dan Silagi says:

    If they're not caught in the act, it's a job for the cops. Vigilanteism is wrong.

  29. I can never understand the world's Christians who support Jew hatred, and BDS aagainst Israel, which has spread by Muslims.
    Those same muslims are taking over the Christian countries, and will convert all Christians to Islam.
    France, England, Holland , Belgium plus many others and USA is on the way.

    This is something they been saying over the years.To convert the world to Islam.

    surely, the Christians should wake up and support the Jews and Israel against Islamic hatred and lies about Jews and Israel.
    Or are they so blind as not to see what the future holds for them?

    Israel is the only country n the entire Middle East, where Christians, Muslims, Jews have full religious rights and freedom.
    The Chrsitain community in Israel, is the only one where Christiani community is growing.

  30. Keith Gilbert
    The Muslims who attack Jews are never arrested and charged.
    Are the French police suck bastards?
    What did the French police do during WW2? They arrested the Jews and sent them to their deaths.
    Never trust a Frenchman.
    The colour of their national falg is white.
    They know how to surrender

  31. A little rope Yechiel, you antisemite schmuck, for you to hang yourself with.
