It is 2019, and we are still facing the demons of racism and anti-Semitism. Why can't we seem to get past this evil?!
In a disgusting act of vandalism, more than 100 Jewish graves in France were desecrated with Nazi swastikas. The anti-Semitic inscriptions were made with spray paint, and happened in two nearby villages.
French president Emmanuel Macron tweeted in response to the attack, “Jews are and make France. Those who attack them, even in their graves, are not worthy of the idea we have of France. Anti-Semitism is a crime and we will fight it, in Westhoffen as everywhere, until our dead can sleep in peace."
Les Juifs sont et font la France. Ceux qui s'attaquent à eux, jusque dans leurs tombes, ne sont pas dignes de l’idée que nous avons de la France. L'antisémitisme est un crime et nous le combattrons, à Westhoffen comme partout, jusqu'à ce que nos morts puissent dormir en paix.

In a visit to Westhoffen on Wednesday, interior minister Christophe Castaner announced the French government would create a national anti-hate crime office.
Speaking alongside Jewish leaders, Mr Castaner condemned the graffiti as a sign that “hate is on our national territory”.
Castaner said, “We must respect the right to believe," adding that a special police unit has been assigned to investigate the hate crime.
Earlier this year, politicians from across the spectrum joined marches against antisemitism.
They denounced a surge in attacks that some commentators blamed on incitement by Islamist preachers, others on the rise of anti-Zionism – opposition to the existence of Israel as a homeland for the Jewish people.
Lawmakers in parliament’s lower house on Tuesday evening approved a non-legally binding resolution modelled on the definition of antisemitism set by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).
The World Jewish Congress commented, “For too long too many have used the excuse that their obsessive criticism of Israel stands exclusive from their otherwise positive feelings for the Jewish people. Those days are now over.”
