Report on Antisemitism in France 2014

Regarding the raw data, the numbers you will read demonstrate a more than 100-percent increase in Antisemitic threats and actions, with a significant rise in violent actions and assaults. During the same period, racist acts--excluding Antisemitic acts--have decreased by 5 percent. Behind each of these 851 acts recorded in 2014--to which I add the victims of extreme horror that culminated with the killings of early 2015--there is a human drama. A person is murdered,
wounded, terrorized. A family is destabilized, and as a result no longer fulfils its place in society. It is a human drama, a collective drama. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all those who have been dragged into this senseless spiral of events. I offer my most sincere condolences to the families, relatives, and friends of the reporters, the Jews, and the police officers that were murdered.
