'Drive out the Jews,' residents of French town told

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 |  Ryan Jones

Residents of the French town of Aix-les-Bains near Lyon say they have been receiving flyers urging them to take part in an effort to drive out local Jews.

The flyers claimed that the Jews are "the main people responsible for the decadence of the White People and the invasion of sub-races," and called on recipients to "drive out the Jews who pollute the television, the radio and the cinema."

The flyers were signed by the Church of Wotan, who is a pagan god of German origin.

Some 1,000 Jews live in Aix-les-Bains, and they along with numerous non-Jewish residents have filed complaints with local police.

In related news, a prominent German-Jewish historian last week slammed the government in Berlin for failing to adequately combat anti-Semitism in its own ranks.

Dr. Julius H. Schoeps, who actually serves on the Interior Ministry's commission to fight anti-Semitism, presented a study showing numerous anti-Semitic remarks and actions by German deputy ministers and other government officials in recent months.

Dr. Schoeps charged that there remain anti-Semites in positions of power in Germany, and that the government must do more to curb their influence when it comes to matters concerning Germany's Jewish population.
