Our European allies continue to lead the fight against anti-Semitic terror:
Fire swept through a Jewish community center in eastern Paris in the early morning hours today after arsonists broke into the building and scrawled swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans inside. It was the latest in a wave of neo-Nazi acts sweeping the country.
The center, which prepares kosher food for needy Jews, occupies the ground floor of a five-story residential building. There were no casualties.
President Jacques Chirac and other politicians were quick to issue statements condemning the attack and vowing to find and punish the perpetrators. Mayor Bertrand Delanoe, visited the site today and said he felt “shock and horror.”
Of course, when I say “lead the fight,” I mean “frown seriously and get back to tenaciously ignoring the problem.”
