“Je Suis Juif” (I Am a Jew) Hashtag Explodes After Paris Attacks

Je Suis Juif

In the aftermath of Thursday’s attacks on the Jewish community of Paris, the hashtag “Je Suis Juif” (I am a Jew) has gone viral.

Four people were murdered by terrorists who attacked a kosher Parisian supermarket called Hyper Cacher (kosher). The French police even ordered that the Paris Grand Synagogue be closed for Shabbat services due to the continued threat. This was the first time that the legendary synagogue was forced to close its doors since the Holocaust.

Of course many of the millions of postings were from Jews and Jewish organizations. Here are a few examples of postings made to this hashtag by non-Jews.

The Daily Mirror posted, “#JeSuisJuif is being used to show solidarity and unity with France’s Jewish community”

Huff Post UK: “#JeSuisJuif: Solidarity with Paris Jews amid second siege at kosher market #CharlieHebdo”

British Labor Politician Mark Ferguson: “We must stand by French Jews as we stood by French cartoonists and police #JeSuisJuif.”

Farouk A Peru: “I am a Muslim but #jesuisjuif as I stand with the oppressed in the face of being targeted for murder. I call upon Muslims to do the same.”

paul mcmenemy ‏@paulmoneymore: “10m10 minutes ago
Sympathy to the families of the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris. #CharileHebdo #JeSuisJuif.”

Angela Bocage (cartoonist): “There will be no shabbat services at the Paris Grand Shul. First time since Nazis occupied France. #jesuisjuif”
