France: Jewish activist assaulted at home

A French Jewish activist whose address was published in anti-Israel forums online was ambushed outside his home by several men who caused him minor injuries.

The attack Friday in Bobigny near Paris was one of several violent incidents and expressions of hate that occurred over the weekend across Europe. There has been a surge in such incidents since Israel launched Operation Protective Edge earlier this month in Gaza.

The 24-year-old activist’s name appeared last week on a page on Facebook that contained the names and photos of dozens of people, including some of their addresses. The Facebook page of  “Young French Revolutionaries” was taken offline, but a cached version of it shows the caption “Smile, you’re on camera” on the post containing the dozens of pictures and details.
