MORE BAD NEWS FROM FRANCE:

Violent hate crimes quadrupled in France in 2002 to the highest level in a decade, with more than half the assaults aimed at Jews, a national study has found. . . .

In the report, the committee said 193 of 313 attacks were against Jews in a “real explosion” of anti-Semitic violence. Last year, the group reported 32 acts of anti-Jewish violence.

Hopefully, the explosion of antisemitism in Europe has peaked. We’ll see.
