France: Three Jew-hate incidents 'every day'

Via Jewish Chronicle:
A hate crimes watchdog has revealed that there has been an average of around three antisemitic incidents a day in France since the supermarket murders in Paris earlier this year.

In addition, the Bureau National de Vigilance Contre l'Antisemitisme (BNVCA) believes that there are even more antisemitic crimes than it has recorded because French Jews are reporting hate incidents "less and less".
BNVCA director Danielle Ferra said that Jews are now feel that talking to police about a hate attack is a waste of time. "If the perpetrators get arrested they are released again and just continue with the attacks, and if they go to prison, they become Islamist extremists. We don't know what to do," she said.

Since the Paris killings, BNVCA has registered 22 complaints of physical violence, 72 online incidents and around 60 accounts of verbal abuse and threats.

The figures indicate that antisemitic crime in France has risen even beyond the increase seen in 2014.  more
