2008.07.12 - “FRENCH JEWS”
(My wife Marie is French Canadian -- but felt this article should go out.)
I received this post from a friend in New York. One of his friends is living in France and posted this to him with the request that Andy distribute it to his American friends.
Andy prefaces with: “Once again, the real news in France is conveniently not being reported as it should. To give you an idea of what's going on in France where there are now between 5 and 6 million Muslims and about 600,000 Jews, here is an E-mail that came from a Jew living in France.”
“Will the world say nothing - again - as it did in Hitler's time? He writes, 'I am a Jew - therefore I am forwarding this to everyone on all my e-mail lists. I will not sit back and do nothing.' Nowhere have the flames of Antisemitism burned more furiously than in France: In Lyon, a car was rammed into a synagogue and set on fire. In Montpelier, the Jewish religious center was firebombed; so were synagogues in Strasbourg and Marseilles; so was a Jewish school in Creteil - all recently. A Jewish sports club in Toulouse was attacked with Molotov cocktails, and on the statue of Alfred Dreyfus in Paris, the words 'Dirty Jew' were painted. In Bondy, 15 men beat up members of a Jewish football team with sticks and metal bars. The bus that takes Jewish children to school in Aubervilliers has been attacked three times in the last 14 months.
“According to the Police, metropolitan Paris has seen 10 to 12 anti-Jewish incidents per day in the past 30 days. Walls in Jewish neighborhoods have been defaced with slogans proclaiming 'Jews to the gas chambers' and 'Death to the Jews.' A gunman opened fire on a kosher butcher's shop (and, of course, the butcher) in Toulouse, France; a Jewish couple in their 20's were beaten up by five men in Villeurbanne, France. The woman was pregnant; a Jewish school was broken into and vandalized in Sarcelles, France. This was just in the past week.
“So I call on you, whether you are a fellow Jew, a friend, or merely a person with the capacity and desire to distinguish decency from depravity; to do at least these three simple things:
“First, care enough to stay informed. Don't ever let yourself become deluded into thinking that this is not your fight. I remind you of what Pastor Neimoller said in World War II: 'First they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up, because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me.'
“Second, boycott France and French products. Only the Arab countries are more toxically antisemitic and, unlike them, France exports more than just oil and hatred. So boycott their wines and their perfumes. Boycott their clothes and their foodstuffs. Boycott their movies. Definitely boycott their shores. If we are resolved, we can exert amazing pressure and, whatever else we may know about the French, we most certainly know that they are like a cobweb in a hurricane in the face of well-directed pressure.
“Third, send this along to your family, your friends, and your co-workers. Think of all of the people of good conscience that you know and let them know that you and the people that you care about need their help.
“The number one bestselling book in France is ... 'September 11: The Frightening Fraud,' which argues that no plane ever hit the Pentagon.
“Please Pass This On. Let's not let history repeat itself. Thank-you for your time and consideration.”

NOTE: It is not just the Muslims who are mistreating and persecuting Jews -- it is French anti-antisemitism also. It showed itself strongly against Major Alfred Dreyfus in the 1890's -- and so distressed and discouraged an Austrian Journalist -- Theodore Herzl -- a Jew -- that he concluded no place in the world including Europe was safe for Jews. They needed their own homeland once again that God promised them in the days of Abraham and gave them in the days of Joshua.
Herzl founded Zionism for this purpose in 1897. The newly founded United Nations in 1947, with the help and urging of President Truman, gained a 2/3 voting majority in 1947, 50 years to the year after Herzl founded Zionism! The only votes against it were the 13 Arab nation-members of the UN.
Arafat the Terrorist, laid a web of deceit and lies concerning the ancient land of Israel and its Temple. Jerusalem is not even mentioned in the Koran. Israel voted itself a nation 60 years ago in 1948 on the basis of the UN mandate, (the one and only positive mandate on behalf of this reformed nation after 1900 years) and has experienced 6 wars since then by those who refuse to acknowledge the UN ruling of 1947.
France is not happy with its powerful 6 million antisemitic Muslims, who desire to have France, all of Europe
and eventually the world under Sharia law. But being an ancient antisemitic nation itself, it takes the easy way out like Pastor Niemoller, and does nothing.
We in America let Israel down during the days of Hitler's Holocaust and Final Solution (See our dealing with the desperate passengers of the St. Louis during World War II), but redeemed ourselves somewhat under Truman. How do we see what is happening in France today? More relevant still -- How do we see our stance in our own nation today? American non-Muslims attending certain schools in our land today, if they do not in Arabic say the 5-fold daily Muslim Proclamation, are punished! We already have, like Canada, permitted Sharia law to be practiced in certain areas.
Come -- where will it all end for us?
