French Jew Admits
Staging Hate Calls
Hello, Anyone Home?
The head of French Friends of Israel's Likud Party admitted staging anti-Semitic phone calls to himself.
Alex Moise received a two-month suspended sentence and a $1,000 fine from a Paris court Thursday for giving a false statement and for wasting the court's time. Moise filed a complaint in January [2004] claiming he had received anti-Semitic phone calls and threats but later admitted that he himself had made the calls.
Describing Moise as a "friend and a serious worker for the community," Sammy Ghozlan, president of the Bureau For Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, told JTA he is "shocked that a community leader would do something like this in the current climate."
