France: Jewish university director target of intimidation campaign

Via Le Monde:

This story started about a year and a half ago (see here).   After the management of the IUT (Technological Institute) in Saint-Denis (Paris) reported several teachers for misconduct, Samuel Mayol, the Jewish head of the institute and his family became a target of intimidation, death threats and physical attacks.  In  one case his house was broken into.  All together, thirty incidents, and the police still don't have a clue who's responsible.

Things came to a head this week when Mayol and six staff members received threatening SMS messages with racist and antisemitic insults.  Five of the teachers announced they will not come to work until the issue is resolved.
