France: "They're shouting 'Death to the Jews' and attacking synagogues. It's completely out of control."

The thoroughly cowed and compromised dhimmi BBC identifies the rioters only as youths, as if its readers will naturally understand that young people have a problem with Israel. No mention is made, of course, of Islamic antisemitism, or of the violent Muslim riots that we have seen all over the world in the last couple of weeks.

French officials decry rioters who target synagogue, Jewish shops
Kim Willsher
12:31 pm, July 21, 2014
French politicians across the political divide on Monday denounced pro-Palestinian rioters who attacked a synagogue and Jewish-owned shops in a Paris suburb.

Hours after the Sunday night clashes between riot police and demonstrators angered at Israel's invasion of Gaza, ministers and opposition members of the French Parliament united to castigate what Prime Minister Manuel Valls said were "intolerable" acts that were clearly anti-Semitic.

Francois Pupponi, the mayor of Sarcelles, told BFMTV that the violent attacks were carried out by a "horde of savages."

Roger Cuikerman, head of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France, an umbrella group, said there was increasing concern among French Jews at growing anti-Semitism in France.

While he said he understood protests against the Israeli government, attacks on Jews simply for being Jewish were "deeply disturbing."

"Anti-Zionism is just another form of anti-Semitism. They are not screaming, 'Death to the Israelis' on the streets of Paris. They are screaming, 'Death to the Jews,'" Cuikerman told Radio France International.

And in Germany . . .

Berlin police cower before Jew-haters
It's a double scandal. Scandal Fact 1: that angry Arabs in Berlin in a demonstration chant "Jew, Jew, cowardly pig" is shameful enough. Much worse is the behavior of the police. They did - nothing. Thousands of Berliners and tourists heard on Thursday the unspeakable roar on the Kurfrstendamm, but so did hundreds of policemen. And no one did anything. Scandal Fact 2: . . .

Growing opposition to Israel in Germany (Deutsche Welle)
**snip**

It was reported that a group of Arabs shouted "Jew, Jew, cowardly pig, come out and fight alone" at a recent demonstration and police officers did not interfere.

In many European cities, what began as peaceful protests turned into outpourings of anti-Jewish sentiments and violence against counter-demonstrators.


**snip**

Politicians from nearly all German political parties have condemned the hostile displays. However, at this stage, the German government does not see a reason to raise alarm.

It would appear that DW is engaged in PC-speak here. The naked anti-Jew nature of the protests is cited, but the anti-Israel spin comes from German "intellectuals" who did not participate in the riots. So you end up with a headline like:
Growing opposition to Israel in Germany

From the article:
It is the third time in a week where pro-Palestinian activists have clashed with the city's Jewish residents. On Sunday, locals reported chats of "Gas the Jews" and "Kill the Jews", as rioters attacked businesses in the Sarcelles district, known as "little Jerusalem".

They no longer bother with the figleaf "death to Israel."

Today (Tuesday) the leaders of France, Germany, and Italy have issued a joint statement condemning antisemitism, saying that it will not be tolerated, and that they would "do everything possible to fight acts and statements that cross the line to anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia.

So not everybody is cowed by the the Muslims in the streets. Presumably statements like this, from the highest levels of government, give the police more room to crack down.

Israel uses missiles to protect its citizens.

Hamas uses citizens to protect its missiles.

It is no wonder that many Palestinians are killed during the Israeli actions. That is the intent of Hamas. They intentionally use citizens as human shields and rely on the inevitable photos of injured and killed citizen to try to garner sympathy. What exactly did the Palestinians think that they were going to get when they voted to be ruled by a terrorist organization. Elections have consequences. Perhaps the Palestinians will make a better choice at the ballot box next time.

From your linked article:
In a joint statement issued in Brussels on Tuesday, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, his French counterpart, Laurent Fabius, and Federica Mogherini of Italy said that though citizens of their three countries had the right to freedom of speech, they would not [?allow?] anti-Semitism of any kind.

So, (a) Foreign Ministers, in (b) a neighboring country, issued (c) a balanced statement to (d) the international press.

Neat.

We'll have to see if any the rioting "youths" are "cowed" by that.
