 (Will they just be called “Hooligans” as the previous French gov. used to do, and say it was due to lack of employment and assimilation?-comments by Allyson Rowen Taylor)



Three boys suffer facial fractures after being assaulted on street by Muslim group wielding stones, brass knuckles. French minister condemns anti-Semitic violence in response  



Three Jewish youths on their way to the Paris branch of the Bnei Akiva movement were attacked by a group of teens on Saturday, a short while before the end of the Sabbath. The three youths were hospitalized for a day due to the facial fractions caused by stones that were thrown at them by the attackers.



The boys were walking through Paris’ 19th Arrondissement, home to 20,000 of the French capital’s Jews. Raphi Zeush, a Jewish Agency and Bnei Akiva envoy to the city told Ynet, “Five Muslim and African youths came and threw chestnuts and cobblestones at them.
