French Jew-Hate Rising: Vichy Wasn’t Enough?

Amin al Husseini und Adolf HitlerOld beliefs die hard, even when they are demonstrably false.” ~E. O. Wilson 
Everywhere that the ideology of Islam touches, suddenly begins a descent back to the Dark Ages … from where the ideology began.

The period 1940-1944 is identified as the Dark Years in France. During these years, 650, 000 civilian workers were deported to work in Germany; 75, 000 Jews were deported to Auschwitz; 30, 000 French civilians were shot as hostages or members of the Resistance, and another 60,000 were sent to concentration camps.
The milieu in that dark period for France was such that it permitted the willing takeover by the Nazi machine. The Vichy government, from where the Third Reich ruled, was an appeasement by the French … a fence sitting position for the French. It’s been unequivocally proven that Islam had a hand in the Nazi Regime via the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who helped Hitler craft “the Final Solution“. Hitler’s affinity for Islam had, as one of its major elements, Jew hatred. The French surrender to the Nazis apparently was not too difficult a task, since there was an under-the-radar anti-Semitism present. 
Since the end of the war, little to nothing has been done to change the erroneous ambience that made the Nazis at home in Vichy. That sleeping giant of Jew-hatred is arising once again due to the influx of Muslim immigration to France.
Western Europe’s home for the largest Jewish and Muslim populations is France. The Jewish Community Protection Service (SPCJ) reports a record rise of 58% in anti-Semitic incidents for 2012, a total of 614 compared to 389 in 2011. According to the Interior Ministry, 55% of racist violence in France in 2012 targeted Jews.

One of those attacks was in Toulouse where Algerian-born Frenchmen Mohammed Merah murdered 7 at a Jewish school, including 3 children. Following that, 2 separate attacks on Jews in Marseille attempted to “finish the job of Merah“. One attack was on a 17-year-old Jewish youth wearing a kipa. He was attacked by four male Muslim gang members who shouted “It’s Shabbat for you, long live Mohamed Merah! F*** the Jews?. Palestine will win!” 
Add to that, the Mayor of Bezons, a Paris suburb, honored Majdi al-Rimawi with honorary citizenship. Rimawi was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 2001 murder of tourism minister Rehavam Zeevi. Mayor Dominique Lesparre claimed, in the city’s newsletter, that honoring Rimawi was a “strong political act” related to the “colonization of the Palestinian people.”
But, OOPSIE…he never mentioned the murder. Now, how does one make a mistake like that unless they are predisposed to indifference to the Jewish State … or, perhaps, to Jews in general.
This is not an ancillary issue but one that must be tackled at the heart of the French government. France’s history has a loathsome aroma concerning its Jewish population. It’s up to the leadership to stamp this out. And with a rising Muslim population, ignoring this will breed more Mohammed Merahs and beyond.
Here’s a question: Wasn’t Vichy enough? I think so…
Shalom through strength…
