A French Jewish Leader Sentenced for Hoax

This report was apparently initially published by the JTA. For some reason I could not find it there.

According to the story, Alex Moise, the head of French Friends of Israel's Likud Party had staged anti-Semitic hate phonecalls to himself about which he had complained to the French authorities. Later, in may 2004, Mr Moise admitted that his claims were fraudulent and was subsequently prosecuted for misleading the authorities.

If this story is true, then it is probably correct to say that while racism exists everywhere, anti-Semitism in France may be in short enough supply to force the likes of Mr Moise to artificially adjust the picture to their liking.
