Sell alcohol and pork or we will shut you down, French town tells halal supermarket
A halal supermarket in a Paris suburb has been told by local authorities it must start selling alcohol and pork or else it will be shut down.

Being North African in France: not only are you being racially discriminated on the job market which makes it very difficult for you to find a job, but you also can’t run your own business in peace either. 


So, one moment in the documentary Je ne suis pas Charlie, this Jewish French man is being interviewed near the Hyper Casher in which Jewish people were taken hostage and some of them were murdered by Amedy Coulibaly. And he mentioned the difference of mobilization during the Je suis Charlie gathering in January and the difference of treatment between the Jewish victims and the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and journalists (who were for most of them Non-Jewish and white). And that’s something that also hit me rather quickly after the January attacks. There was no mobilization either when Mohamed Merah attacked this Jewish school a few years ago and it’s obvious that many French people do not identify enough with French Jews to mobilize for them and merely constantly relegate them to a victim status and symbol that is just dehumanizing. French Jews are instrumentalized by white French people (the French establishment always deeming the Jewish French as the “model minority”), but that doesn’t mean that Jewish people in France are considered as a full part of, what some call, “the legitimate national body”.
