Under en Gaza-demonstrasjon i Paris søndag, omringet demonstranter en synagoge. Flere hundre jøder som var innenfor slapp ikke ut. Situasjonen var meget truende.

Opprørspoliti måtte rydde gaten. Det skjedde ikke uten tumulter. To jødiske ledere og seks politimenn ble skadd. Statsminister Manuel Valls fordømte omringingen på det skarpeste.

Synagogen ble ikke «befridd» før kl 21.

“I am profoundly shocked and revolted. This aggression towards the Jewish community has taken an absolutely unacceptable turn,” Joel Mergei, president of the Israelite Central Consistory of France, told AFP.

Også en annen synagoge skal ha opplevd trøbbel.

I både Tyskland, Oslo og Paris meldes det om Gaza-demonstrasjoner som tar en stygg vending.

Slagordet under Paris-demonstrasjonen var: «Total støtte til den palestinske kampen». Det lar seg meget vel tolke til å bety støtte til Hamas og rakettene de sener mot Israel.

Også i USA har det forekommet antijødiske utslag. I Boston fredag holdt en liten gruppe studenter en pro-israelsk demonstrasjon utenfor det israelske konsulatet. Da dukket Palestina-venner opp.

Surrounded by pro-Palestinian activists chanting “Jesus killers” and “drop dead,” several pro-Israel students claimed they were “physically assaulted” by the protesters at the rally’s close.

The incident took place as anti-Israel protesters ended their demonstration outside the consulate and headed to the Boston Common for another rally. As protesters crossed the street outside the consulate, they surrounded the Israel supporters standing between them and the adjacent Public Garden.

After several minutes of hurled insults and physical contact, police officers intervened to restore order.

“School may not be in session, but Israel-haters take no breaks,” said Malveira. “I think the Boston [Jewish] community needs to do a lot more in terms of rallies and public support – actual mobilizing – instead of hiding online or limiting their support to synagogue vigils,” she said.

One of the assaulted students – Chloe Valdary, a University of New Orleans senior – pressed charges on Saturday at the Boston Police Department against a woman related to the incident.

“There were several cops who literally did nothing,” wrote Valdary on her Facebook page after the protest. She also posted videos and photos of the “disturbing” incident, the first of which she has faced in Boston.

“They surrounded us, they swarmed us,” said Valdary, who is in Boston for the summer as a fellow with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting (CAMERA).

At motdemonstranter roper «jesusmordere» tyder på at det var «kristne» eller innfødte amerikanere, hvilket bilder også viser.
