France: Jewish political candidates targeted, attacked

Via JSS News:

Jewish candidates in the upcoming municipal elections in two Paris suburbs were targeted for vandalism and physical attack.

In Le Blanc-Mesnil posters of Laurent Benhaim and Edwin Legris were vandalized with Jewish stars.

A day later Edwin Legris was attacked in his home by thugs wearing 'police' shirts and wielding baseball bats.  Legris, his wife and children were all seriously wounded.

The office of Sarah Benhamou, a candidate in Noisy-le-Sec, was vandalized with antisemitic graffiti: swastikas, "Jew", "big whore" and sexually explicit graffiti.  Le Parisien reports that posters of the candidate elsewhere in town were also defaced with swastikas.
