Anti-Semitic attacks nearly double in France

Anti-Semitic attacks nearly doubled in France in the first seven months of the year, the country's main Jewish group saidAnti-Semitic attacks nearly doubled in France in the first seven months of the year, the country’s main Jewish group said. A total of 529 anti-Semitic actions or threats were registered up to the end of July, against 276 for the same period last year, the Council of Jewish Institutions in France (CRIF) said, citing figures gleaned from the interior ministry. Such anti-Semitic acts “exacerbate the growing unease that oppresses Jews in France each day and overshadows their future”, CRIF said in a statement. Yet more worrying, the group added, is the appearance of new forms of violence against Jews — including attacks by organised gangs and the targeting of synagogues, as well as acts of vandalism against Jewish businesses and “terrorist attacks”.
