We would never know this from French newspapers. They are talking again about "youths" and inter-confessional conflicts. They talk about a need for a "delicate" investigation. What was a motive for a mob of 30 Africans and Arabs attacking a Jewish boy who was going to a synagogue on Shabbos?
What possibly could be the motive! We publish below press release of AJC which spelled out what happened. Shame on France!
AJC Press Release:
ParisJune 22, 2008 –
New York– The American Jewish Committee (AJC) expressed shock and anger over a Saturday night gang attack in
that left Rudy Haddad, a 17-year-old French Jew, in intensive care with severe head injuries. French Jewish community leaders described the assault on the teenager, a member of the Lubavitch Beth Haya Mouchka synagogue, as one of the most brazen and violent anti-Semitic attacks on a Paris street.
“No words can adequately convey our outrage over this senseless assault, which has threatened the life of a promising young man and caused incalculable pain to the Haddad family and the wider French Jewish community,” said AJC Executive Director David A. Harris.
“In solidarity with his family and community, we pray for the full recovery of this latest innocent victim of hate," said Harris. "We welcome President Sarkozy’s condemnation of the attack and his commitment to find and prosecute the perpetrators of this unspeakable crime."
