On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the crystal Night, France made a sad realization : the anti-semitic acts in the country have jumped on the first nine months of 2018, with an increase of 69% according to the government.

It is Edouard Philippe himself, who revealed these figures, which show 385 anti-semitic acts are listed, of which one-third equity and two-thirds of the threats.

For the president of the representative Council of jewish institutions of France (Crif), Francis Kalifat, these numbers are “no surprise”. They “show the permanence and the development of a anti-semitism of the daily”.

This is on the internet and the social networks that are played as the battle against hate speech. Paris is preparing a law to strengthen the control of the web.
