    BAGNEUX, France -- In the bleak housing project where a young Jew named Ilan Halimi was held captive and tortured before being dumped in a vacant lot to die, there's scant sympathy for the victim.

    ''It's too bad this happened, because we immigrants are always blamed," said Ibrahim Ag Ahmalou, a lanky man of West African heritage who shares his girlfriend's apartment in the project. ''But Jews have all the money and power. Everyone knows this and resents them. That's why they have these problems."

    Last week there were three more attacks on Jews by Arab and African immigrants in suburban Paris, according to police. None of the latest victims was seriously injured, but the attacks heightened the nervousness of French Jews. There is alarm that the antipathy of French Muslims toward Jews, long based on opposition to Israel, is reverting to the even more sinister prejudices that once pervaded Europe, making Jews the scapegoats for all social ills.

    ''Anti-Semitism is rising in our country," said legislator Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

    Although tens of thousands of French turned out last month to march against anti-Semitism, few analysts believe the show of solidarity will change the attitudes of an embittered underclass of restive Arabs, Africans, and other dark-skinned newcomers who increasingly, if illogically, blame Jews for the poverty and prejudice that often beset their lives. France is home to Europe's largest population of Muslims -- about 6 million

    Yeah, but do you trust anything that that liberal piece of yellow journalism known as the Globe prints? I hear they're owned by the NYT.

    Liberals will try to ignore this stuff if possible because they themselves (liberals) are becoming "Anti Semetic", yes the kind and caring liberals are little by little becoming Anti Jewish. Boy what a problem the wife swappers out in Hollywood are going to have with this one, many, many Jews are devout liberals, Jesus H Christ, what will they do, who's side will the mushy little darlings take, The Muslim or the Jew. What will the pony tailed ACLU lawyers do, they sure as hell aren't Muslims?

    What a spot to be in.

    The world is such a very scary place. We need the army to protect us. Lock up the kids and keep them supervised. We need more police. :cool:

    Those American-haters. Makes me want to go buy some freedom bacon and freedom lumber. I don't think it's safe to drive to Alaska anymore, is it?

    Why anyone would come into this thread and not even comment upon the topic is difficult to believe....REALLY difficult.

    In the case of France, their authorities shouldn't focus upon the problem, but rather they should focus upon the cause of the problem. Which appears to be Muslim immigrants. Immigrants should be the LAST ones to cause problems and their punishment should be immediate deportation.

    No, the problem is ignorance.

    It may appear to you that the cause of the poblem is Muslim immigrants, but that's the same thing as saying to a person lung cancer: "You know what your biggest problem is? Your cough."

    Lots of antisemitism among the French long before the Muslims showed up, of course the muslims have exacerbated the problem across Europe.

    but the level of the problem is a new thing......jews experience discrimination in the same manner many types of people experience it......just like homophobia, it's all bigotry......one doesn't need to give a different name for each type.....bigots are bigots
