Letter to France's Chief Rabbi targets journalists

    France’s chief Rabbi has been sent a threatening letter warning of “brutal action” if he does not halt the activities of Jewish journalists who are trying to “curb the liberty of the French”.

    The letter, sent to Rabbi Gilles Bernheim by an obscure outfit calling itself Interaction of Forces of Order, claimed the group had “no racist or extremist animosity” and even said it respected the Jewish community in France.

    The letter’s authors protested about “the Stalinist attitude of certain radio and television journalists who are spreading propaganda… Before employing brutal measures, we come to you, as these corrupt journalists are Jewish.”

    The letter even noted how Moses had given the people of Israel permission to fight to ensure freedom.

    Police have launched an investigation to track down the IFO, which is believed also to have sent a death threat this week to Jean-Michel Gentil, the judge who ordered a criminal investigation into former French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s funding of his 2007 election.

    A police spokesman said: “We take every threat to the Jewish community very seriously.”
