France: Three Jews Beaten With Hammers, Iron Bars by Islamic Youths

French Jewish youths.

Three yarmulke wearing Jewish youths were brutally assaulted on Saturday night by a mob of over a dozen who beat them with hammers and Iron bars. The incident took place in Villeurbanne, near Lyon in southeast France. French blogs reported that the crime was carried out by Islamic youths.

The victims were hospitalized suffering various wounds and were subsequently released according to French newspaper L’Express. Police forces have begun a manhunt in search of the suspects.

On Sunday the Interior Ministry said that they believe the assault to be motivated by antisemitism.

Minister Manuel Valls, denounced the attack in a statement calling the act “extremely serious” and “a deliberate attack against our republican model that should enable everyone, without distinction, to live freely and safely expressing his religious affiliation “.

The assault comes just months following the brutal massacre of four by an Islamic terrorist at a Jewish school in Toulouse.

In reaction to the incident, French Jewish artist Ron Agam told the Algemeiner that, “It is about time now for the French authorities to radically search for these Imams and put a stop to the brainwashing on tens of thousands of Muslim kids in France.”

“It is unacceptable that this culture of racism and antisemitism is being tolerated by a significant number of the Muslim community, this culture must stop,” he concluded.

  • It’s all very well to fight back. But are we all supposed to carry a hidden billy club for protection?

    It’s time for Hamas to come to term with the facts of life: Jews are here to stay; no amount of their hatred will succeed in making Jews “go away” It’s time for the French authorities to get real with Hamas and other Jew-haters, and throw these people into jail long-term.. If they went after Christians the way they go after Jews, you c’n bet yer’ life they’d have the crap beat out of them by everyone from the police down to the neighborhood bully.

    What is the matter with these Hamas people? Don’t they have anything else to do except hate Jews?

  • Despite the injustices we face from other communities, let us remember to rise above the hatred. We can protect ourselves without arming ourselves. Once we cross that line we become no better than those who seek to do us harm.

    • Turn the other cheek…just the sort of thing our six million brothers and sisters attempted to do before being slaughtered. The solution is to stand up to these Islamic barbarians. It would be more preferable if the French authorities took back France from these beasts.

      • There is a difference between turning the other cheek and rising above the hatred. Ithis is something that must not and cannot go without response but we must seek to fight this fire with water, not fire.
        Fight ignorance with education
        Fight hate with justice

    • Bollocks.

      You turn the other cheek to these people and you will have it cut away.

  • Our Torah refers to us as ARYEH ( LIONS).
    We are but if the lion acts like a LAMB you will be slaughtered like one you will be treated as one.
    Use whatever weapon you are comfortable with from a straight razor you shave with to a metal screw driver to a gas powered WEED WACKER or a metal bat or a gun if they will not stop.
    UNTIL THEY UNDERSTAND NO MORE MEANS NO MORE. THEY WILL STOP OR WE WILL STOP THEM. WE WILL NEVER LET THEM DRAG US BACK IN TIME TO DACHAU to be beaten abused and slaughtered. WE WILL SLAUGHTER YOU LIKE OUR FATHER DID IN MITZRAIM. THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL THESE ANIMALS WILL BE STOPPED. He has already shown us the way! What is hanging in-between your legs is not a decoration!

    • Let us Jews put our heads together and solve this problem. If THEY can carry weapons, WE will carry weapons – and fight back. The great “might” of Egypt’s Military and Air Force is no match whatsoever for Eretz Israel. Prayer is all very nice and has its effect. But it’s not enough. They prayed in Dachau, too.

  • Judaïsme français, vous feriez mieux de faire vos valises.
    (French Jewry, you’d better pack your bags.)

  • Majid Malik

    No, Islamic youths didn’t hit them…Islamophobic artcile

    • Majid: Really? Did the murders in France before this also fall under that category as well. How about you going to a Jihadist web site and tell them to stop advocating violence and Genocide against Jews, and to stop printing text books that report the Holocaust did not happen and we Jews are descendents of Dogs and Pigs. Take care of your own brothers and Sisters we dont need your nonsense!

  • Prayers for the victims of this terrible attack. I’m sure the vast majority of French people abhor such violence.

  • This (like Ilan Halimi, and the Toulouse school massacre) is not a “result” of the “conflict” but the CAUSE of it all.

    It was always about the dual intolerance by Arab Muslims:
    (1) Arab racism (2) Islamic bigotry. Ever since the infamous mufti began leading massacring Jews. It is followed by [Fakestinians, AKA] grandchildren of Arab immigrants who call tehmselves as “palestinians,” for some reason.
    They like to use their civilian population, to make sure there are casualties… so they can claim victimhood and shed more blood.

  • Jewish youth are going to have to learn to carry and use baseball bats against these barbaric muslim animals.
