What’s With French Anti-Semitism?

A Jewish friend says: There’s an aspect to the hostility toward Jews in France that is never mentioned. That is, the Jewish community, on the whole, sided with the French colonialist over the Arab nationalists which created a bitter divide that is still with us. The hostility there is a fabric with a number of threads. There is another divide, which is the Palestinian issue. So, what’s going on in France isn’t some rebirth of European hostility toward Jews so much as hostility between 2 communities. That is, if the Jews or the Arabs weren’t in proximity to each other, there wouldn’t be an issue. If the Arabs weren’t in France, the number of hostile acts would also be negligible.
