French Boys Charged With R*pe Of 12-Year-Old Jewish Girl

The gang r*pe of a 12-year-old Jewish girl has prompted widespread indignation in France, with President Emmanuel Macron condemning the “scourge” of anti-Semitism on Wednesday after two 13-year-old boys were prosecuted.

Hundreds of people protested anti-Semitism in Paris and Lyon, amid recriminations between rival political groups campaigning for a national election later this month.

The child told police she was approached by three boys aged 12 to 13 in a park near her house in Courbevoie, a northern Paris suburb, on Saturday evening, according to police sources.

According to one police source, she was led into a shed where the suspects assaulted her and “forced” her to have s*x “while uttering death threats and anti-Semitic remarks”.

According to another police source, the youngster claimed she had been labeled a “dirty Jew”.

According to the source, one boy questioned her about “her Jewish religion” and Israel, citing the child’s statement to investigators.

One teenager filmed the r*pe, while another threatened to kill the girl if she alerted authorities about it, according to police sources.

Minors charged

A companion who was with her at the park recognized two of the attackers, and three boys were detained on Monday. On Tuesday, two 13-year-olds were charged with gang r*pe, anti-Semitic remarks and violence, and making death threats. They’ve been brought into custody.

The third youngster, aged 12, was charged with anti-Semitic comments, assault, and making death threats, but not with r*pe. He was able to return home.

According to a statement from the prosecution service, the accused youngsters “expressed regret towards the victim without discussing their implication in the facts” of the crime.

France boasts Europe’s largest Muslim community and the largest Jewish community outside of Israel and the United States. Since Hamas’ attack on Israel on October 7, which sparked the Gaza conflict, there has been an increase in anti-Semitic incidents.

“R*ped at 12 because she was Jewish,” read one banner at a demonstration in central Paris, where Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti and other well-known personalities participated.

Macron told a cabinet meeting of government ministers that the “scourge of anti-Semitism” was endangering French schools, according to a source close to the president.

According to the source, the president urged for “dialogue” regarding racism and anti-Semitism in schools to prevent “hate speech with serious consequences” from “infiltrating” classrooms.

Marine Le Pen, the far-right icon whose National Rally party is expected to make significant gains in the election, condemned the “extreme left” for “stigmatising Jewish people” since the Israel-Hamas conflict began.

Jean-Luc Melenchon, leader of the hard left France Unbowed (LFI) party, who has been accused of downplaying the gravity of anti-Jewish attacks, condemned “anti-Semitic racism”.

Elie Korchia, the chairman of France’s Jewish Central Consistory, condemned what he called “a sordid and unworthy s*xual crime,” while Haim Korsia, the country’s senior rabbi, said he was “horrified” and that “no one should be excused in the face of this unprecedented wave of anti-Semitism.”

Courbevoie’s centre-right mayor, Jacques Kossowski, condemned “an abject act” and demanded that the culprits face the full force of the law, whatever of age.

According to official records, anti-Semitic acts in France climbed threefold in the first months of 2024 compared to the same period the previous year.

Of the 1,676 anti-Semitic actions reported in 2023, 12.7 percent occurred in schools.
