Is a French Intifada Brewing?

France has Europe’s largest Muslim and Jewish communities. The outbreaks of anti-Semitic violence since the Second Intifada are only the most visible signs of an unstable and fraught situation.

    “Simultaneously, a wave of anti-Semitic acts of violence hit France, unprecedented since the Second World War.”

    Why don’t you call what Israel is doing to Palestinians as ‘antisemitic’? After all, Palestinians are more Semitic than European Jewish imperialists who invaded Palestine and have since dispossessed and oppressed Palestinians.

    And why don’t you call the West(dominated by Jewish power)’s policy in the Middle East as anti-Muslim and neo-imperialist?

    PS Though Muslims outnumber Jews 10 to 1 in France, Jews outnumber Muslims 100 to 1 in all the elite institutions of power. Jews control France.

    Since Jews have been pushing open non-white immigration in Europe and America to undermine the power of whites(and play divide-and-rule among the gentiles), it’s only poetic justice that Muslim immigrants should kick Jewish ass.

    Also, if Jews hadn’t used their political, financial, and cultural power to rob and cheat so much of the world, there would be no anti-Jewish hatred. Jews are not hated because they are Jews but because of what they do to gentile communities.
