Anti-Semitism in France has deep roots and ‘new masks,’ French PM says

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe speaking before the CRIF (umbrella group of French Jewish communities) Annual Conference:

“In our country, anti-Semitism is alive. It is not new, it is ancient. It is not superficial, it is well-rooted and it is alive. And it hides always behind new masks, attempts to justify itself through diverse reasons.”

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, also speaking at the CRIF Conference, added:

“Antisemitism, which cloaks itself as anti-Zionism, must never be allowed to succeed.”
