The baby daughter of a French rabbi was burned after being exposed to solvent placed in her carriage.
The 14-month-old girl suffered burns on her back and thighs Monday in the city of Bron, near Lyon, Le Parisien daily reported Wednesday. The baby is not in danger, according to the report.
The solvent had been placed inside a carriage that the baby’s grandmother had parked in a communal space inside her apartment building overnight from Sunday to Monday. The grandmother rushed the baby to the hospital after noticing a severe irritation on the baby’s skin after taking her for a walk in the stroller and then bringing her inside.
Police are looking into a possible anti-Semitic motive, perhaps by a neighbor, a police source told Le Parisien.
“Possible”? Really? Who else could have done this? “Right-wing extremists”? Not likely. In 2015, French Jewish leader Roger Cukierman said: “All violence, and we must say this, all violent acts today are committed by young Muslims.”
Is France diverse enough yet?
