France is the Western country with the largest number of Jews assassinated in the 21st century

In all fairness, it has to be stressed that quite a few Jews work in various capacities for the French mainstream media.  They go along with the Israel-bashing described in the article (some with great enthusiasm) or keep silent about it.

Via Gatestone Institute (Stefan Frank):
A Franco-German film that no one in Europe is legally allowed to see has become the source of a major scandal, and its creators the targets of unprecedented smear and hate campaigns from Germany's public broadcasters. 
At the center of the scandal is one of Europe's biggest media companies, the Westdeutsche Rundfunk (WDR) -- with 4,500 employees and an annual budget of 1.4 billion euros -- and the Franco-German culture channel, ARTE.
The television documentary, "Chosen and Excluded – the Hate for Jews in Europe", will be shown in the United States for one night only, on August 9. The Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles announced that it would screen the film after the German and French networks tried "to bury the documentary, before it could contaminate the viewing public with the truth," according to the Center's Associate Dean, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, in an interview with Gatestone Institute. "It is a film that needs to be viewed by anyone concerned about anti-Semitism and anyone concerned about the democratic future of Europe. It is a truth-telling, and 'PC'-busting documentary", he said.(...) 
Would the station (ARTE) ever show a serious film about anti-Semitism?, Gatestone asked the journalist Jean Patrick Grumberg, of the French-language news site Dreuz. Grumberg replied: 
"France is also a country were communist mayors celebrate Palestinian Jew-killers as honorary citizens. Arte would never denounce a communist. They would instead introduce the Terrorists as "Freedom fighters"... the heads of Arte France would never - ever - be hired if they are suspected of being pro-Israelis or conservatives. As a matter of fact, being a radical is welcome." 
According to Grumberg, "nearly 100% of the French media are anti-Israel." Anyone who is pro-Israel must conceal it, or deal with the threat of repercussions. 
"And within this hard to believe environment, France Television and Arte are the worst among the 'islamo-lefties'.  
"To start with, France's Arte heads of program refused to produce a documentary about anti-semitism in Europe because they knew too well that it would underline the Muslim anti-semitism issue, and Muslim anti-semitism is taboo in France, most notably among the left and in the media. 
"One has to keep in mind that France is the Western country with the largest number of Jews assassinated during the 21st century (14 Jewish people killed because they were Jewish). All of them were killed by Muslims, not by the Far right. Arte would never want you to know that."
The scandal surrounding the film shows how things really are in terms of the culture and freedom of expression in Europe. "The WDR ranks among those whom we criticize in this film," says Schroeder. "Up to that point, one could only speculate about this [anti-Semitism], but the way they dealt with this broadcast made it very clear." 
Anti-Semitism in Europe does not come from fringe groups. It is primarily left-wing liberals -- "intellectuals" -- who fuel the hatred. At the end of the film, retired Parisian police commissioner Sammy Ghozlan, a Jew who fled to France from Algeria, says: 
"I am convinced that the Arabs in France would never have turned to violence against the Jews if they had not been convinced by others that it was their duty to demonstrate their solidarity with their coreligionists in Palestine. Otherwise, they would never have done that. They were persuaded that this was necessary. And since some of those who hold power, mayors or ministers, took the liberty of doing such a thing, for them, it justified the attacks so they supported them." 
"That is one of the key messages of our film," Joachim Schroeder said to Gatestone. "Who was it that encouraged them to do this? It was not just their brothers and sisters; it was the French and German mainstream."
