The latest solidarity theme on Twitter - #JeSuisJuif

There’s a new hashtag on Twitter – #JeSuisJuif, French for “I am Jewish.”

As the two sieges in France involving Islamist terrorists earlier today ended with the deaths of the three gunmen, along with four of the hostages from the kosher supermarket in eastern Paris, the #JeSuisJuif hashtag united Twitter users in an outpouring of grief and anger.

Similar hashtags appeared earlier this week. #JeSuisCharlie was coined to honor the dead in Wednesday’s massacre at the headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, whole #JeSuisAhmed paid tribute to police officer Ahmed Merabet, who was killed while on patrol in the vicinity of the Charlie Hebdo building.

Here are a selection of #JeSuisJuif tweets:

    WHERE ARE ZE PUBLIC PROTESTS FOR ZE FOUR SLAIN JEWS?
    I took down my profile of Je Suis Charlie sign today. Why? Because I saw no throngs of French citizens today in the streets, with signs, expressing their solidarity and sadness for the Jewish lives that were taken in the shoot out at the Parisan deli. What about Je Suis Juif!”. If I were French Jew, I would get out, now— France as well as Europe in general are heading towards very dark times.
    The nation of France’s silence today is most telling, but not at all surprising. I cannot be as sympathetic to the French. Yes, I feel sorry for the horrible fear that has taken over all of humanity, as we watched with horror the videos of the massacre and carnage the past two days. We have all as human beings felt the terrible loss of security. We will all suffer for this. No doubt that there will be strong reactions to this. Rightly so. But with reaction comes loss of freedom. Just as we all suffered after 911. Life changed radically since then all over the world. After that our privacy rights have been challenged. Try flying internationally and you will see what I mean.
    I hate to say it, but the French are now getting what they deserve. It is they who support to this day state- funded anti-Semitism, and it is they who have for decades have supported uber socialist- leftism , including the anti Israel, Pro Palestinian movement. And again it is the French who voted many times, too many to count, at the UN, one anti-Israel resolution after another. And then there was the final blow, final stab in our collective Jewish backs on Dec 2014 to recognize a PA state.
    Finally, who can forget France’s wholehearted compliance , deporting nearly 100,000 of their own Jews (Vichy government ) to Nazi concentration camps.
    So I say to all my little frogs, arayn drerd arayn to you France. And Am Yisrael Chai.
