To check the veracity of this report, let’s look into the Jihad Watch archives:
1. “A dozen books about the Dreyfus case and related legal issues were stamped on their edge with the words “Against the Jewish Mafia and Jewish Racism” followed by the addresses of a Holocaust-denying Web site and an Islamic propaganda Web site.”
2. Jewish teen stabbed by Muslim in Paris.
3. “Recently, there have been two ritual murders of Parisian Jews by Muslims.”
There is much more. But even the coverup is nothing new: see “EU ‘covered up’ attacks on Jews by young Muslims.”
From the Jerusalem Post, with thanks to Gloria:
Disaffected youth and marginalized individuals are more likely to perpetrate anti-Semitic attacks than those with ties to the Palestinian cause or neo-Nazi groups, as Jewish groups have charged, according to an anti-Semitism report France released Tuesday.
The study “shows that the link with the Middle East conflict is the most misleading or is constructed through false reasoning or exaggerated representation,” according to remarks made by Interior Minister Dominique de Villepin released with the report he commissioned….
Jewish leaders welcomed the report as an indication of French resolve — often criticized as lacking — in fighting the resurgence of anti-Semitism. But they took issue with the report’s finding that “only a small proportion of [perpetrators] are North African [or] originate from a country that has links with the Arab-Israeli conflict.”
“It’s a fact” that many of those who have been prosecuted for attacks on French Jews have Arab or Muslim backgrounds, according to European Jewish Congress secretary-general Serge Cwajgenbaum, who attributed the downplaying partly to politics.
“For many reasons one doesn’t want to antagonize some communities,” he said.
He also noted that the increase in anti-Semitic attacks is due to a larger array of perpetrators, decreasing the relative proportion of Arab and Muslim actors.
“Anti-Semitism has spread out and become a social element,” he said.
