French Pres­i­dent Emmanuel Macron has con­demned the “scourge of anti-Semi­tism” threat­en­ing schools in France after a 12-year-old Jew­ish girl was gang-raped by a group of boys who accused her of hid­ing her reli­gion from her boyfriend.

The hor­rif­ic attack occurred in a Paris sub­urb, where the girl said she was grabbed by three youths, one of whom was her ex-boyfriend, while sit­ting in a pub­lic square with her cur­rent boyfriend. 

The boys alleged­ly dragged her to an aban­doned hangar and forced her to under­go anal and vagi­nal rape, fel­la­tio, and death threats while mak­ing anti-Semit­ic remarks.

Two 13-year-old sus­pects have been charged with gang rape, anti-Semit­ic insults, vio­lence, and issu­ing death threats. A 12-year-old was also charged with anti-Semit­ic insults, vio­lence, and death threats, but not with rape.

The lead­ers of France’s Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty, which is the largest out­side of Israel and the U.S., expressed hor­ror over the attack. Macron called for “dia­logue” about racism and hatred of Jews in schools to pre­vent such “hate­ful speech with seri­ous con­se­quences” from “infil­trat­ing” classrooms.

Anti-Semit­ic acts in France have tripled in the first months of 2024 com­pared to the same peri­od in 2023, with over 12% occur­ring in schools.
