Jew rape spreads to France

The BBC reports:

French President Emmanuel Macron has said that schools in France are being threatened by the “scourge of antisemitism” after a 12-year-old Jewish girl was raped in what police said was a hate crime.

According to French media, the girl told police she had been in a park in Courbevoie, north-west of Paris, with a friend last Saturday when three boys – two aged 13 and one aged 12 – approached her. She knew at least one of them.

The victim said the boys dragged her away to an isolated location before hurling antisemitic abuse at her and raping her.

The boys were arrested on Monday and two of them were charged with gang rape, antisemitic insults and violence, and issuing death threats.

French media also reported that one of the attackers threatened to kill the girl if she went to the police.

This is shocking in so many ways. Rape is terrible, but rape of a 12 year old is even more terrible. But then add to that where it seems she was targeted because she is Jewish, and the fact the rapists were also 12 and 13, and it is beyond disturbing.

I do wonder where the alleged offenders learnt their hatred – was it parents, was it online or somewhere else?
