A few weeks ago, I wrote a piece on the riots in France. I was trying to uncover the real reason for the unrest. There were just too many people – angry people. I thought that the anger was directed at Macron, but I was not convinced that the rioting was about taxes and the high price of oil as the press was reporting.
I thought perhaps the anger was rooted in the Muslim migration issue.
Just today I have been reading that many of the Yellow Vested rioters are anti Semites. There were banners placed above streets calling Macron “The Whore of the Jews” and others calling him “The Puppet of the Jews.”
Emmanuel Macron was mentored by the Rothschild family before he entered the political arena.
This is from an article I wrote on Macron during the summer:
“Macron became an investment banker at Rothschild & Cie Banque at the age of 30. Mentored by the Rothschild family – this man certainly has no issues with self esteem. As a matter of fact, if a new “Left Behind” movie was to come out, Emmanuel Macron could step into the role as Antichrist and pull it off quite brilliantly.
His first name “Emmanuel” means “God with us.” With the convergence of events within the last year lining up neatly with Bible prophecy; the entrance of this man onto the world stage is a bit too coincidental for me.” source
France’s ‘Yellow Vest’ protests take an anti-Semitic turn
French Jews have become a focal point for the “Yellow Vest” protests across France, with an increase in anti-Semitism by demonstrators. In recent days, the Jewish community has reported numerous anti-Semitic videos, graffiti and actual threats appearing in central locations and on social media.
Last Saturday, the Chabad House on the Champs-Elysées Boulevard temporarily closed its doors for the first time due to safety concerns. The Chabad House issued a message saying that “for the first time, the Chabad House will not open on Shabbat morning; the police do not have the situation under control and today is a very dangerous day.”
At another synagogue in the city, emails were sent to members of the community before Shabbat, warning of the riots. “In the Eli Dray synagogue they recommended us not to conduct services in the morning,” said Tova and Yehoshua Nagler who were staying in the city for Shabbat. “The caretaker announced that anyone who nevertheless wants to go will only be able to enter until nine in the morning, and take into account that the synagogue will remain closed until evening because the gates will be closed from inside, so they asked people who come to pray to bring food along.”
‘The Jews are pulling the strings’
On Route A6, the main artery between Paris and Marseilles, a huge banner was hung on a bridge, accusing Jews of controlling French President Emmanuel Macron. The banner read: “Macron is a whore of the Jews.” Social networks have also become an arena for spreading anti-Semitic expression. Thus, for example, a message circulated by an anonymous source wearing a mask: “It was the rich Jews who brought Macron to power so that he would be their puppet and they are pulling the strings. The Jews are responsible for the lowering of taxes on the rich and for the whole financial situation.”
In another video, an activist from the “Yellow Vests” invited demonstrators to come to a Chabad Hanukkah candle lighting, saying: “The Jewish people celebrate while the French have nothing to eat.” The anti-Semitic French entertainer Dieudonné M’bala M’bala and his admirers joined the demonstrators and gave the Nazi salute.
A video circulated on the social networks of French musician Stephen Ballet, who lives in Istanbul, inciting protesters to “understand that the real enemy is the Jews.” Ballet, an esteemed musician with a racist reputation, last week uploaded a YouTube video which garnered 36,000 views before it was blocked. In the video, Ballet claims that lighting Hanukkah candles in front of the Eiffel Tower “while the French are dying of hunger” is a deliberate provocation by Jews against the French people. He also expressed regret that he could not come and “say hello” to the Jews who lit the candles.
An increase in number of French Jews wishing to emigrate
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, which helps Jews immigrate to Israel, noted that following the events in France there has been a surge in the number of Jews interested in immigrating to Israel. Uriel Saada, head of the France Desk at the Fellowship, said that he received dozens of requests from Jewish families interested in immigrating to Israel.
“Only last Friday I received about ten phone calls, which is very rare because usually they do not call at all on Fridays,” he said. According to Saada, since police forces in Paris are occupied with the riots and attempts to restore order, the Jews began to secure the synagogues themselves, and even warned the weekend that it would be better not to bring children to prayers.
He also noted that the trend of Jewish families planning to immigrate to Israel is increasing. “As long as the activists do not accept what they are demanding — raising the minimum wage — the situation will continue and may even escalate. I do not think that everyone will rush in and make this move, but there is no visible end to this protest.”
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, president of the Fellowship, said: “Anti-Semitism in France has become widespread and very blatant in recent years, and the authorities are still acting feebly against it. Due to the situation, we are prepared with the necessary resources to assist any Jew who wishes to immigrate to Israel through us and be successfully absorbed in Israel.
“We are also working in France and throughout Europe to secure Jewish institutions. I hope that the European leadership will succeed in its efforts to eradicate anti-Semitism, but until then it is important that we all stand guard.” source
Why are French ‘yellow vest’ protesters attacking Jews?
In France, many protesting the new fuel tax have been carrying signs and chanting slogans calling Macron the “whore of the Jews” and “the Jews’ puppet.”
Modern Zionism can be said to have begun in the courtyard of the École Militaire in Paris in 1895. It was there that Viennese journalist Theodor Herzl witnessed the appalling spectacle of the degradation of Captain Alfred Dreyfus. A loyal and assimilated Jewish officer, Dreyfus was wrongfully convicted of treason as part of a scheme to cover up the guilt of a non-Jew. His insignia were ripped from his uniform and his sword was broken as he proclaimed, “I am innocent. Long live France.”
But what was most chilling to Herzl was not so much the cruelty of the ceremony as the reaction of the Paris mob that had gathered to watch. Baying for the blood of the innocent man, cries of “Death to the Jews!” rang out in the historic site.
It was at that moment, he later said, that he realized that if Jews were treated thusly in what was widely considered at the time to the best, freest and most enlightened city on earth, then they had no future anywhere in Europe. He soon set to work on writing The Jewish State, the book that would give birth to a movement and eventually the rebirth of Jewish sovereignty in the land of Israel.
This story is brought to mind by what must be considered an equally astonishing spectacle that has been taking place in the City of Light in our own day. In the last month, demonstrators have jammed the streets of Paris protesting the imposition of a fuel tax by the government of French President Emmanuel Macron. With gas already costing a staggering $5.54 a gallon, Macron decided to raise taxes another 25 cents on fuel as part of an effort to combat global warming. But he didn’t count on hundreds of thousands of French citizens being willing to rise up and demand that the tax be rescinded.
Those who took to the streets wore the gilets jaunes, or yellow high-visibility vests that French citizens are required to keep in their cars in case of emergencies. They were angry at Macron, who only a year after being elected president in a landslide victory for his new technocratic centrist movement is already in big trouble. He’s been denounced as the “president of the rich” for his high-handed green policies that is hitting the middle class hard and was forced to rescind the tax.
But Macron’s political woes are only part of this story. While the initial coverage of the protests emphasized the normative populist slogans against Macron, we’re now learning that one of the themes sounded by the protesters is one that should be familiar to students of French and European history: blaming it all on the Jews.

Brethren, this is chilling to me as a Jewish Christian. It is bringing back memories of Hitler’s Germany and especially of his book “Mein Kampf.” Hitler blamed the Jews for every problem in Germany – every problem in the world. He said that Jews were a cancer on society.
Antisemitic propaganda was a common theme in Nazi propaganda, although it was occasionally reduced for tactical reasons, such as for the 1936 Olympic Games. It was a recurring topic in Hitler’s book Mein Kampf (1925–26), which was a key component of Nazi ideology.
Early in his membership in the Nazi Party, Hitler presented the Jews as behind all of Germany’s moral and economic problems, as featuring in both Bolshevism and international capitalism. He blamed “money-grubbing Jews” for all of Weimar Germany’s economic problems. He also drew upon the antisemitic elements of the stab-in-the-back legend to explain the defeat in World War I and to justify their views as self-defense. In one speech, when Hitler asked who was behind Germany’s failed war efforts, the audience erupted with “The Jews.”
After the failure of the Beer Hall Putsch in November 1923, he moderated his tone for the trial, centering his defense on his selfless devotion to the good of the Volk and the need for bold action to save them; though his references to the Jews were not eliminated (speaking, for instance, of “racial tuberculosis” in “German lungs”), they were decreased to win support. Some Nazis feared their movement lost its antisemitic edge, and Hitler privately assured them that he regarded his previous views as mild. Hitler in Mein Kampf describes Jews as “a dangerous bacillus”.
Thereafter, he publicly muted his antisemitism; speeches would contain references to Jews, but ceased to be purely antisemitic fulminations, unless such language would appeal to the audience. Some speeches contained no references to Jews at all, leading many to believe that his antisemitism had been an earlier stage. source
My father used to tell us that we Jews were the world’s scapegoats. I believe he was right. But as a believer, I clearly see that Satan puts hatred in the hearts of people across the planet.
What we are seeing taking place in France right now is a very scary thing to witness for the Jewish people. I pray that French Jews will now make aliyah.
The only safe place for them is in Israel.
