Deo volente.

It is the time of Kristalnacht … again

Chris over at Veritastic has a boots on the ground update on the anti-semitic violence that continues in France.

In Lyon, a car was rammed into a synagogue and set on fire.

In Montpellier, the Jewish religious center was firebombed; so were synagogues in Strasbourg and Marseilles; so was a Jewish school in Creteil — all recently.

A Jewish sports club in Toulouse was attacked with Molotov cocktails, and on the statue of Alfred Dreyfus in Paris, the words “Dirty Jew” were painted. In Bondy, fifteen men beat up members of a Jewish football team with sticks and metal bars. The bus that takes Jewish children to school in Aubervilliers has been attacked three times in the last 14 months.

This is 2006, unless you happen to be a French Muslim, and then it’s 792 all over again.

Read the whole thing. It gets worse.

As for vacationing in Israel to offset the disparity, I’d do it.

And as for boycotting France, you had me at Freedom Fries four years ago, Chris.
