The French Jewish community organisation, the Jewish Community Protection Service, has recorded a 75% rise in antisemitic incidents in 2009:
PARIS — A group founded to protect France’s Jewish community says anti-Semitic acts in France soared 75 percent last year – many coming as Israel pressed an offensive against Hamas in the Middle East in January.
The Jewish Community Protection Service tallied 832 anti-Semitic acts in 2009, up from 474 a year earlier. Most involved graffiti and threatening gestures; about 17 percent involved vandalism and violence.
The group said Wednesday that 354 took place in January 2009 alone, when Israel ended a three-week offensive against Palestinian militant group Hamas in response to rocket attacks from Gaza.
