Anti-Semitism seen rising among France's Muslims

Boston Globe reported Anti-Semitism seen rising among France's Muslims
Semites are peoples whose ancestry can be traced back to Shem, Noah's eldest son. This includes Arabs, Aramaeans, Jews, and many Ethiopians. So if an Arab is anti-semetic, he must hate his own people.
In the bleak housing project where a young Jew named Ilan Halimi was held captive and tortured before being dumped in a vacant lot to die, there's scant sympathy for the victim. 'It's too bad this happened, because we immigrants are always blamed," said Ibrahim Ag Ahmalou,
Maybe the fact that they blame immigrants is because they are the ones filled with hatred.
a lanky man of West African heritage who shares his girlfriend's apartment in the project. ''But Jews have all the money and power.
Or at least that is what the people that taught you to hate told you to think.
Everyone knows this and resents them. That's why they have these problems."

Anchoress said We keep hearing that the majority of Muslims in France do not consider themselves to be French.
They are willing to share the French's dislike of Jews, but they certainly don't want to be French. And if the French area stupid enough to let them stay in their country, they will deserve what happens
And besides, how can Muslims be Anti-Semitic when they are themselves Semitic peoples?
The point I made above. However I think they are merely anti Zionist (or anti Jew), and they are just not smart enough to realize they can't be Anti Semetic because they are Semites.
Unless….they’re self-loathing….
You have a good point there. The Islamofascists have done some pretty despicable things, and any sane person would loath them. Perhaps there are some sane French Muslims. (And I wish there were more).
Arghgh…it’s all too much. Let’s go have chocolate milk!
