CRISIS IN FRANCE

Rabbi Yossi Gorodetsky
About the author

 

For the past ten days, the situation here in Paris is deteriorating with no end in sight. Well over a thousand cars have been set afire in the street. Just a few hundred yards from our office in the Place de la Republique , several vehicles have been set afire. City buses have been burnt, trains have been disrupted while carrying hundreds of passengers, etc. The images of Paris and its suburbs literally burning are true.


At first we were told by the authorities that it was an isolated incident in the suburbs and would be brought under control rapidly. Then, as the violence spread, from city to city, we realized that the government had lost control of the situation.


Unfortunately, once again politics is at the center of the current events. Presidential elections are scheduled for next year and the two front runners, the current Prime Minister, Mr. De Villepin (Chiracís preference), and Mr. Sarkozy, the present Interior Minister, are thinking more about votes than putting an end to the current crisis.


Todayís local papers report that the French public is in a state of shock. Violence and rioting of this magnitude hasnít been seen here in many years. The French equate these types of events to the Middle East ( Israel or Iraq ) or Central Africa .


As for the Jewish community, we have been once again thrown in to a period of uncertainty and instability.


Many of the original venues where the young Muslims started the rioting do not have major Jewish communities. In the past two days, they have entered towns and cities that have a major Jewish presence; synagogues, community centers, schools, etc. The police have promised to protect us and have taken concrete steps to that affect. We can only hope and pray that the violence does not spread any further and take on an anti- Israel / anti-Semitic agenda.


We are in constant contact with the French authorities at the highest level, and are trying to prevent the unthinkable from happening.


Personally, it is hard to believe that we are once again faced with a nightmare of this magnitude where we must think twice before going anywhere, even just several minutes from home.


Please join me in praying that the Jewish community be spared, and that G-d protect our families from harm.
