Friends and Family,
I received this post from a friend in NY. 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 email 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 anti-Semitism burned more furiously than in France: In Lyon, a car was
rammed into a synagogue and set on fire. In Montpellier, 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 20s 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
ju st 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 anti-Semit ic and, unlike the m, France exports more than
just oil and hatred. So boycott their wines and their perfumes. Boycott
their clothes and their foodstuff s. 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.
