Jewish Man Assaulted with Taser Gun Outside Paris Synagogue

Anti-Semitism is not the best reason to make aliyah, but it is better than being dead.

Anti-Semites shot a Jew in Paris with a taser gun Monday night,

Two unidentified men wielding a taser gun assaulted a Jewish man Monday night at a building next to a synagogue, according to the French Jewish  JSSnews.com website.

The victim was identified as K. Sassoun, a 52-year-old Israeli, and he filed a complaint for racial hate crime and assault with Paris police.

The perpetrators fled from the scene immediately after the act. Sassoun did not sustain serious physical injuries but required medical treatment after being knocked down by the taser gun, which sends electric currents that usually incapacitate targets or render them unconscious for several minutes.

One of the perpetrators was black, according to an unnamed witness who reported the incident to the National Bureau for Vigilance against anti-Semitism,  a Drancy-based not-for-profit watchdog known locally by its French acronym, BNVCA.

“The perpetrators assaulted the victim for no other reason than his clothing and appearance, which identified him as being Jewish, and the fact that he was near a Jewish place of worship,” BNVCA said in a statement.

The neighborhood used to be the center of Jewish life in Paris and is considered its historic Jewish quarter.

According to BNVCA, the assault was part of a spate of hate crimes against Jews this month.

On Saturday, a group of teenagers hurled stones at a Jewish institution in Sarcelles near Paris and shouted “death to Jews.” On Friday, BNVCA learned that a school bus full of Jewish students was pelted with stones by teenagers in Paris.

And on Sunday, several people chanted anti-Semitic slogans at a young Jewish woman near a Jewish studies center in Strasbourg. One of the chants was “Merah max” – a reference to Mohammed Merah, an Islamist who killed four Jews in Toulouse in 2012.

Earlier this month, the French Jewish community’s watchdog organization, SPCJ, released a report that counted 423 anti-Semitic incidents in France in 2013. The figure was a 31-percent decrease from the previous year, but was still higher by eight percent than the number of incidents recorded in 2011.

  2. Jews can go to Israel, but they should consider rejecting the idea of being a victim. Arm yourself, stop accepting the place and role gentiles assign to us, reject Christianity (or host culture) as the acceptable matrix for our culture. These peoples are just the current tenants and will not be here forever.

    If there weren’t gun laws in Nazi Germany and the Jews had strong leadership within their individual communities Hitler never would have succeeded in the evilness he accomplished. Too many jewish people believe in the the goodness of the gentiles around them. Not a good idea. We are as weak as you are naive . I am a gentile that loves and supports the Jewish people and Israel but I know I’m a minority . Jews need to be strong and diligent . God loves you and so do real Christians .

  4. I think God will use sometimes unbecoming circumstances to force people to accomplish His plan. I think it is God’s plan for all Jews in the Torah except those Jews who embraced Christianity to make Aliyah.

  5. No surprises-europe has never stopped hating Jews especially in hard economic times. They just pushed it underground. And besides, there just aren’t that many Jews left in europe. We must all be thankful for Israel, a place that we can go to and that has cost us so dearly to have.

  8. Thank G d there is Israel for the Jews to go to

    Why does such a misleading photograph accompany this article? The use of the photograph, given that it is not a police officer who is accused of tazering the gentleman, diminishes the integrity of the story.

  11. Shameful and disgusting. Sanne DeWitt

  12. Aryeh Sax says:

    Jews should not turn the other cheek anymore Christians don't even do that now that they are in the majority, defend yourself.

  13. Unfortunately, there will always be hatred of the Jewish people-after all, they are proof of G-d's existence, and, more importantly, that He cares for all of his children (Jewish and non-Jewish), but has always had a special place in His heart and His plans for the world for Jews. "Real" Christians defend Israel, the Jewish people, and their right to not only exist but flourish without fear of harm-and that's how, even in the 21st c., you can distinguish the "real"" from those who just say they are…whatever!

  14. sadly, France has a reputation for anti-Semitism; whilst not all Frenchman feel the same, there has always been hatred for the Jewish people. But, this is the death of Europe for Jews, and the ingathering of the Exiles. It is happening.
