France: March against antisemitism turns antisemitic

"against homophobia, racism and the extreme right"
Anything missing?

Following the antisemitic and homophobic graffiti in Toulouse, 2000 people marched in the city this past Saturday.

But some of the participants turned on Nicole Yardeni, head of the regional CRIF (French Jewish umbrella organization).  They shouted "Yardeni get lost. CRIF, fascists, Zionists, get lost."

Yardeni was surprised that the protesters did not want Jews in a protest march against antisemitism, and noted that some protesters identified with anti-Zionism (*).

(*) Remember: Anti-Zionism has nothing to do with antisemitism.

Update, via LDJ: The antisemitic protesters were members of a Communist group.
