‘Jews burn Algerian flag’ claim debunked

 If you can’t report the news, make it up. That seems to be the watchword of a disturbingly large sector of the media. In this case, expertly debunked by Elder of Ziyon, the Algerian paperEl Chorouk is projecting the impression of Algerian-born Jews as disloyal colonialists by inventing a story of flag-burning.

Algerian newspaper El Chorouk is covering the Muslim attacks on Jews in
France – but it is claiming that it is violence between the groups, not
the one-sided would-be pogroms we have seen.

According to the paper, French Jews have been burning the Algerian flag
in response to French Muslims burning the Israeli flag. According to the
article, French Jews and Muslims have lived together in peace, but
(Zionist) French TV coverage of Muslims burning Israeli flags, along
with them carrying Algerian flags, has caused all the problems of Jews
returning the favor.

“For the first time by the Jews of France protests are not against the
Palestinians and against Hamas, but against Algeria and its symbols,”
the article says.

The article helpfully adds that Algerian Jews – who lived in Algeria for
centuries – were colonialists who helped the French during the
revolution and who were therefore expelled.

We are told that Algerians are afraid of the Jews in their midst, and
that – get this – Jews in France are trying to gain the trust of French
Tunisians, Moroccans and Turks in an attempt to isolate the Algerians.

Looking through photos and video, I could not find a single instance of a Jew burning an Algerian flag.
