  CRISIS IN FRANCE II

Rabbi Yossi Gorodetsky
About the author

It has been over two weeks. Two weeks of uncertainty and instability for the Jewish community in France. The good news is that the original fears of this turning in to a Jewish issue have not materialized.

The situation here in France is far from normal. While the press is reporting that things are quieting down, there is still no end in sight. Over four thousand cars have been set afire in the streets of France since the "calm" was reported.

As I wrote last week, violence and rioting of this magnitude hasn't been seen here in many years. The government was forced to declare a state-of-emergency Tuesday, empowering local authorities to invoke exceptional security measures such as curfews, if deemed necessary.

Major cities such as Paris and Lyon have been severely restricted. In Lyon, children under 18 cannot be out after 10 PM unless accompanied by an adult.

I was told by a deputy in the French parliament that there is a majority in the parliament that has asked President Chirac to seriously rethink the governments position on dealing with the unrest. He alluded to a major push by himself and several of his fellow deputies to set up a commission to deal with the cause and the realities of the present situation.

For the moment, the Prime Minister, Mr. De Villepin, has announced that he is reinstating funding for all government programs that had their budgets lowered or cut since 2001. Needless to say, this is tandem to the government relenting in the face of violence and unlawfulness. What kind of message will that send to the rioters? What kind of message will that send to regular law-abiding folk who are being victimized by the rioters.
 
Recent discoveries have shown that the rioters are well-organized as well. Who knows where they are receiving direction from? One can only shudder when thinking such thoughts.

It is our hope that the government take serious steps to stop the rioting and unlawfulness that now rule the streets of France. We pray to G-d that the Jewish community be spared and our families remain safe from harm.
