Jews News is one of those rabidly pro-Jewish websites that are also anti-Islam. For some reason, they believe that being Jewish, one must also be anti-Islam. Take a look at one of their latest posts – Muslims in Paris Attack 13-year-old Boy Wearing Kippah.
Everything about this news suggests that the boy was targeted because he was wearing a kippah, a Jewish cap that is also known as the yarmulke. They even include a picture of a large crowd of people kicking the boy. Take a look.
If the violence in the picture is not enough to boil your blood, they make sure you know who’s at fault by quoting the Quran :
You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers to be the Jews – Qur’an 5:82
Which they use as an example of hypocrisy, by pointing out that this is another example that the “Muslims are the most intense of the people in animosity toward the Jews“. That’s a neat literary twist that kills two bird with a stone – telling you that the Muslims are to blame while demonstrating how hypocritical their holy book is.
If that is not enough, they quote Joseph Byron of the European Jewish Press and put in brackets this comment – (thanks to The Religion of Peace). The sarcasm is duly noted.
But is that really the truth? Did Muslims attack a young boy because he was wearing a kippah? Let’s find out…
Did Muslims in Paris Attack 13-year-old Boy Wearing Kippah?
Intensive search for an actual news report revealed nothing. The blogs that were covering this were just paraphrasing from a report published by the BNCVA, the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism – a Jewish watchdog group in France. The only credible source was a secondary report by The Times of Israel, also paraphrasing the same report :
The incident occurred on July 7 in the French capital’s 19th arrondissement, near the Gare du Nord train station, according to a report published by BNCVA, the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism.
The 13-year-old boy, who was not named, was followed by six men of African descent as he exited the school while wearing a kippa, the report said. One of his aggressors shouted: “Take that, dirty Jew” while the group was hitting the boy. One of the young men also stole the boy’s cellular phone before fleeing the scene.
The boy was taken to a hospital where he received stitches to wounds on his head.
Here is the actual press release by the BNCVA (Bureau National de Vigilance Contre l’Antisémitisme) :
Bureau National de Vigilance Contre l’Antisémitisme 8 Boulevard Saint Simon 93700 Drancy 0663883029 Le Président Drancy le 7 Juillet 2015 Sammy GHOZLAN 0609677005 Le Bureau National de Vigilance Contre l’Antisémitisme condamne l’agression de nature antisémite commise le lundi 6 juillet 2015 rue Pailleron à Paris 19 eme. La victime, une jeune garçon de 13 ans,sortait de son école juive place Colonel Fabien.Il a été repéré comme juif car il porte la kippa. Il raconte avoir été suivi et frappé par 6 jeunes qu’il décrit d’origine africaine. Au cours du tabassage , l’un des auteurs aurait déclaré “VAS Y TAPE LE CE SALE JUIF “; Avant de s’enfuir les individus lui ont volé son téléphone. Blessé, le jeune juif a été transporté à l’hôpital ou des points de suture ont été effectués sur sa tête. Un témoin des faits a été interpellé par la police et gardé à vue. Nous avons recommandé aux parents de la victime de déposer plainte,et de se rendre au UMJ pour faire établir le constat des blessures afin de faire évaluer le nombre de jours d’ITT Le BNVCA demande à la police de tout mettre en œuvre pour identifier et arrêter les agresseurs.
So it appears that yes, a 13-year old boy was waylaid and beaten by 6 teenagers in Paris on the 6th of July, 2015. The facts of this case are quite clear :
- The boy was followed by 6 teens of African descent after he left the Colonel Fabien Jewish Day School.
- He was wearing a kippah but even if he wasn’t wearing one, those teenagers would know he’s a Jew from the fact that he’s a student of a Jewish school.
- There is no evidence that these teens of African descent are Muslims. The BNCVA never said that they were Muslims.
- The police arrested one of them, and even they did not say that he was a Muslim.
Perhaps those teenagers are Muslims, perhaps they are not. Until we know otherwise, we cannot say one way or another. Therefore, Jews News‘ claim that Muslims attacked the 13-year old boy is unsubstantiated and in short, malicious. Their intentional fingering of the Muslims as the culprits is a disgrace to their fellow Jews, especially when they maliciously used an unrelated photo to back up their claim.
No, This Is NOT The Photo
Jews News has a reputation of plagiarising other people’s articles and pictures, so it’s no surprise to find them doing it yet again. This time, they stole this photo from French photographer, Thierry Roge, and misappropriated it for their anti-Muslim slam piece.
This is actually a REUTERS photo of a French student being “attacked by a gang of hooded youths from poor suburbs during a nationwide protest demanding the government to scrap a youth jobs law during a demonstration in Place de la Republique in Paris March 28, 2006.”
Frankly, anyone with some common sense would have realised that this cannot possibly be the photo of six teens of African descent attacking a 13-year old boy :
- There are more than 6 people attacking that boy.
- Some of them are obviously NOT of African descent.
- There are so many people just standing and watching, including women. Do you think they would all stand by and watch a 13-year old boy get beaten?
- It is SUMMER in Paris in the month of July. You wouldn’t see people wearing sweaters and parkas like in this picture.
As victims of anti-Semitism throughout the ages, Jews should know what it’s like to be maligned. It is ironic that some of them choose to use that experience as an excuse to malign other people.
New (15/7) : The Entire Article Was Plagiarised!
As mentioned before, Jews News has a reputation for plagiarising other websites’ articles. This time, we discovered that they copied wholesale almost the entire (false) story from Fitnaphobia.
So we can now confirm that the ironically-named Fitnaphobia (which means phobia of lies) is the one who created this piece of falsehoods.
