FRANCE’S FIGHTING JEWS – Fighting IslamoNazi antisemitism in France with physical force, not verbal pleas

Unknown-2According to the French Interior Ministry, anti-Semitic incidents have increased 40 percent during the first three months of 2014. And in a country where a whopping 37 percent of the population harbors anti-Semitic attitudes, one Jewish youth group, Betar France, has started to fight back.

At its core, the 90-year-old youth Zionist movement called Betar aims at empowering and promoting leadership within young Jewish communities. But with an increased number of Jews falling victim to anti-Semitic assaults on the streets of France, the Parisian sect of Betar resumed training five months ago in Krav Maga—a martial art used by the Israeli Defense Forces.
