Swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans were daubed on Jewish-owned stores in the Paris suburb of Garges-les-Gonesse last week. Police said that nine Jewish store owners filed complaints last Friday after they found their shop windows marked with anti-Semitic slogans. At the same time, a three-foot-high swastika and the slogan “France for Frenchmen only” were drawn on the walls of the small city’s underground parking garage.

Several non-Jewish local political personalities also had their walls daubed with hostile slogans and a workshop belonging to the city’s Socialist mayor was burned down as a result of criminal arson. There have been no arrests up till now and police say they have few clues in their investigation.

There will be no Daily News Bulletin dated November II, Veterans Day, a postal holiday.
