Mother and Baby In France Attacked Because They Were Mistaken For Jews

French claims to tolerance and a lack of favoritism for Muslims notwithstanding, this kind of thing happens far too often in France ... because being anti-Semitic is one of the last bastions of allowable hatred in Europe. And the French know they have a violent underclass of Muslims waiting to strike if the French stand up to them.

The six attackers who were armed with knives clipped the 23-year-old woman's hair, and cut her t-shirt and pants before drawing three swastikas on her body.
The men of North African origin also overturned the pram with her baby of 13 months. In the attack they robbed her backpack which contained her identity papers, a bank card and 200 euros ($250).

Police said the attackers erroneously assumed the woman was Jewish because she was living in Paris' 16th district. "Only Jews live in the 16th district," one of the men was quoted as having said.

French President Jacques Chirac expressed his horror and condemned what he called "a shameful attack."

Was it shameful because they didn't kill someone, shameful because the newspapers found out about it, or shameful because Jewish treatment in France remains a black mark on French culture?
