B’nai B’rith International condemns in the strongest possible terms the fire bombing of a Kosher supermarket in the Parisian suburb of Sarcelles. The deplorable act was committed on Sept. 19 when two men dressed in black threw what is reported to be Molotov cocktails into the busy market. At least one person was wounded. The attack took place one day after Rosh Hashanah and a week before Yom Kippur when the supermarket would undoubtedly be bustling.
This senseless act is intolerable. B’nai B’rith supports the French authorities in their efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice.
