Anti-Semitic Signs: An Open Investigation After A Rally of Anti-Health Passes

Justice takes over the case. The day after a demonstration in Paris against the health pass, the prosecution opened an investigation into the signs considered anti-Semitic seen in the procession.

These, in particular, had been widely shared on social media, to the point of sparking a complaint by the Paris police prefect. The investigation was opened under the charge of “public provocation to hatred or violence against a person or group of people because of their origin or belonging or not belonging to an ethnic group, nation, race or religion.”

Among the targeted posters, we found some with the motto: “who?”. A reference to an anti-Semitic statement by a retired general, Daniel Delawarde, made a few weeks earlier. This is not the first time such a sign has been found in the middle of a court case. A former member of the National Front, who demonstrated in Metz a week earlier with a similar poster, will be tried next September.

Invited on Franceinfo to speak on the subject this August 15, the vice president of Crif (Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France) Gérard Unger declared: “We can be against the vaccine, we can be an anti-health pass, but not we can not be allowed to be anti-Semitic in our country, it is a crime, not an opinion ”.
