France: Muslims Fear Backlash After Report Reveals Anti-Semitic Attacks Increased 82% In 2012

"The year 2012 was a year of unprecedented violence against Jewish people in France," the SPCJ said in its report, which will be handed in to Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault on Wednesday.

What the SPCJ find most concerning is that Mohamed Merah's cold-blooded shooting of three children and a rabbi appears to have inspired others to commit anti-Semitic attacks.

The organisation reports that in the ten days following the Toulouse shooting 90 acts of anti-Semitism were reported, many of which were "committed with reference to supporting or identifying with Merah".

And after the grenade attack in Sarcelles, there were 28 acts of anti-Semitism reported in eight days including "many cases of bullets being fired at Jewish people," the SPCJ reported.
