Scores of the attacks based on religious belonging in France
The annual report led by the Dilcra shows unquestionably that hate crimes against Muslims in France tripled in 2015, rising up from 133 to 429. That is the highest rate ever registered by the National Observatory against Islamophobia (established in 2011).
These assaults occurred mainly following the jihadists’ attacks in January 2015 against Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket. Tensions tend to rise despite calls by the governments not to assimilate Daech to the French Muslims.
On the other hand, assaults against Jewish individuals and sites remain at a high level with 806 attacks recorded, that is a -5% compared to 2014. It also has to be noted that attacks against Christian’s sites rose by 20%.
These numbers reveal undeniable tensions crawling inside French society and must be strongly fought both by the government and civil society. In this context, condemning all of these assaults is essential, but building an open and laic society is crucial too.
