Anti-Semitism at Paris 'anti-racist' protests

French MP Meyer Habib has condemned anti-Semitic statements and banners at protests in France ostensibly against racism in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Banners displaying anti-Semitic slurs such as "Jews stink" and "Israel trained cop killers" could be seen, and anti-Semitic slurs were shouted by many demonstrators.

"Here we see the link between Islamic activists and the extreme left wing," said Habib. "No matter what the issue, people come out with their hatred of Jews. Jews and Israel are always found guilty."

Habib added that, "I'm not worried so much about French Jews as I am worried about France itself."
