I received the following email a few days ago…
Bad news from France …REAL BAD! for French Jews…
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 that country where there are now between 5 and 6 million Muslims and about 600,000 Jews, here is an E-mail that came from a Jew living in France.
Please read! “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 20’s 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 just 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-Semitic and, unlike them, France exports more than just oil and hatred. So boycott their wines and their perfumes. Boycott their clothes and their foodstuffs. 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.
The number one bestselling book in France is….’September 11: The Frightening Fraud’ which argues that no plane ever hit the Pentagon!
Please Pass This On, Let’s not let history repeat itself, thank-you for your time and consideration.”March 5, 2009 6:31 pm at 6:31 pm #671758myshadowMember
Just to add on for all the people that insist on buying French Louis Vutton, On the doors of their store in Paris it says NO JEWS OR DOGS ALLOWED. Rachmana L’tzlanMarch 5, 2009 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #671759smartcookieMember
MYSHADOW- Yes, I heard about that too. Sad, however, because pple dont care enough to stop purchasing their BRAND NAME items.March 5, 2009 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #671760
france has always been a lowly, ugly place of immorality and hatredMarch 5, 2009 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #671761
Does anyone have proof of the claim of the signs of the doors of Louis Vutton? I am usually quite skeptical about stories like this. I remember the “story” that Tommy Hilfigger himself said that he regretted that Jews and blacks were wearing his clothing (the story was a fake).
Not denying the Anti-Semitism eminating from France, just skeptical about the Louis Vutton sign.March 5, 2009 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #671762squeakParticipant
I think that the alleged sign was there during WWII.March 5, 2009 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #671763
During the Second World War, a sign at the entrance of the main Louis Vuitton storefront in Paris read “No dogs. No Jews.
no longer there, except perhaps in the hearts of the employees and management.March 5, 2009 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #671765JayMatt19Participant
I know this will open a can of worms…but what the heck

Firstly, I love the quote.
Secondly, Why did this not apply to all the “innocent” Muslims who were tortured by the USA (against its own constitution by a President to preached “security” over freedom.
Many on this site praised the President’s actions. However, I’d like to ask the chasuva olam “Why couldn’t this happen to us?” “Why not stand to ensure the values and morals of the ‘medina shel chessed’ which attracted our parents/grandparents etc.?”
Did the quote above not apply here?March 5, 2009 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #671766areivimzehlazehParticipant
mod39- that story aint true cuz it was regarding Ralph Lauren, not HilfigerMarch 5, 2009 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm #671767
Sorry areivim. Did not happen with Ralph Lauren either. These internet rumors can be like Rebbe stories, they jump form one company (or Rebbe) to anotherMarch 5, 2009 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #671768areivimzehlazehParticipant
did you call Ralph himself? 😉March 5, 2009 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #671769moish01Member
i’d call it “morah torah”
or is it “rebbe rambling?”
editing: maybe i like “rebbe rumors” better 😉March 5, 2009 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #671770
snopes.com tells the story of the falsely alleged racist remarks of Tommy Hilfigger, just as the mod stated.March 5, 2009 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #671771
couldn’t get through. He was busy playing polo 😉March 5, 2009 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #671772
feivel, where else would one go to check this stuff?March 5, 2009 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #671773noitallmrParticipant
But it’s famous that Henry Ford said “I regret making and producing cars because Jew are buying them”.March 5, 2009 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #671774avfParticipant
I THINK THAT THE REAL MESSAGE IS
“ATTN. ALL YIDDEN: REALLY STRONG WAKE UP CALL BEING SENT- DO TESHUVA NOW”
LETS DAVEN THAT WE ALL GET THE MESSAGE NOW….March 6, 2009 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #671775
i dont know, i always go to snopes.
or google: “urban legends” for sites similar to snopes
or just google the item itself, possibly adding the word: “myth” alsoJanuary 7, 2010 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #671777meshanemazalMember
Who wrote the email? Does anyone know? If what he says is true, we need to spread the word to Jewish companies that sell French products.January 7, 2010 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #671778bombmaniacParticipant
