(BNVCA – The National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism), the Simon Wiesenthal Centre has commended those members of the public who came to the victims help and the swift action by the police.  Nevertheless, the Centre has urged the judicial authorities to see the attack for what it is: a pre-determined antisemitic hate-crime. 

In view of the gathering of Palestinian terrorists, last week hosted and feted by the nearby Paris region municipality of St. Denis, Dr. Shimon Samuels, the Centre’s Director for International Relations, called for an investigation into possible Jihadi links and internet usage of the aggressor.  He further appealed for a governmental commitment to prevent the continued entry of Palestinian terrorists into France.
