Racist bastard burns Jewish School in Paris, France

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a racist bastard has burned down a Jewish school in a suburb of Paris, France:

Fire gutted the Merkaz HaTorah Jewish secondary school in the Paris suburb of Gagny in the Seine-Saint-Denis region Saturday morning at 3am. There were no injuries.

Fire started simultaneously in two separate places on the first floor of the school where works were under way. A primary school and a kindergarten for 200 children were to be inaugurated there in January 2004. The arsonist or arsonists broke into the building through a ground floor window.

This primitive anti-Jewish racism in France and Europe has reached levels not seen since the second World War. It seems to me that it has become fashionable to be a racist bastard in France and Europe - for example, click here for a report on how this week a famous Greek composer has called the Jews "the root of all evil".

The difference between today and 50 years ago is that we have the State and Army of Israel. We also have a fair, democratic and just superpower on our side: the United States of America.

Imagine the reaction in the US if some moronic composer called the African Americans "the root of all evil". There would be strong condemnations from all sides, all political parties, the media, and the overwhelming majority of Americans. And rightly so.

Arsonists torch Jewish school near Paris
By MICHEL ZLOTOWSKI, Nov. 15, 2003, Link

Fire gutted the Merkaz HaTorah Jewish secondary school in the Paris suburb of Gagny in the Seine-Saint-Denis region Saturday morning at 3am. There were no injuries.

Fire started simultaneously in two separate places on the first floor of the school where works were under way. A primary school and a kindergarten for 200 children were to be inaugurated there in January 2004. The arsonist or arsonists broke into the building through a ground floor window.

About 100 firefighters were called in to put out the flames, which destroyed some 3,000 square metres on the school's second floor.

France's Minister of Interior Nicolas Sarkozy and Minister of Education Luc Ferry visited the charred remnants of the building on Saturday. They were met by the head of the local Jewish community and by CRIF's (the umbrella body representing French Jewry) Director-general Haim Musicant.

"The criminal origin of the blaze is more than strongly suspected which gives, for this Jewish school, an anti-Semitic and obviously racist connotation," said Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy.

"This shows that there is still lots of work to do to fight against all forms of anti-Semitism," the minister added.

He vowed that those who set the fire would be caught and punished "with the greatest severity."

Musicant said he was worried by this aggression against a Jewish school. "In the homeland of human rights, attacks against children and schools are absolutely intolerable," he said.

"We know the French government's determination to fight anti-Semitism. We would like the arsonists to be arrested, tried and condemned in the hardest possible way to send a strong signal about France's commitment to fight anti-Semitism."

The Merkaz Hatorah school has some 160 junior high school students and 60 students in the high school.
