France: Testing The Boundaries Of Jew Hatred (Updated)

This is the new scandal gripping France:

Une entreprise parisienne de création graphique a partagé une annonce, recherchant un candidat “si possible pas juif(ve)”. L’agence nous explique que le choix était volontaire, “pour des questions d’horaire de travail”. Elle a, depuis, retiré son annonce, et affirme avoir été “victime d’un hack”.

Translation:

A Parisian graphic design company shared an ad, looking for a candidate “if possible not Jewish”. The agency explains that the choice was voluntary, “for reasons of work schedule.” The company has since withdrawn its announcement and said it was “the victim of a hack.”

I’m told some of the replies to that tweet are pretty horrific, but you have to read French. Though a fair few are taking up the cause of pointing out just how bigoted that want ad was.

Jew hatred in Europe is getting much harder to ignore. More at the link if you can read French or use Google translate.

Update 3rd Feb 2015: As expected this is getting a little more attention. It’s now been covered by the BBC.

An advert for a graphic design job in France has been withdrawn after it said the candidate should “if possible not be a Jew”.

Racial discrimination is illegal in France and anti-racism group SOS Racisme says it is taking legal action.

The ad was posted on Monday by Paris-based NSL Studio on jobs site Graphic-Jobs.com.

The BBC also report that an anti-racism organisation in France, SOS Racisme, is going to take legal action.
