Paris. Beirut. Baghdad. Yola & Kano. These names of cities are again this week the names of massacres. The International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network condemns without question the horrible crimes perpetrated in the last days, the ones the mass media has made visible, as in France’s capital, and the ones it has refused to see in the capitals of Lebanon and Iraq as well as two cities in Nigeria, and as ever, in Palestine.
