(JTA) — A campaign office of the front-runner in the French presidential election, Emmanuel Macron, was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.
The Normandy campaign office was vandalized on Friday night, the L’eveil Normand newspaper reported. Macron is not Jewish. He is, however, considered a supporter of Israel.
The attack came less than two days before the opening of the polls Sunday morning in the runoff election between Macron and Marine Le Pen, the candidate of the far-right National Front party.
Among the epithets written in red marker on the entrance to the campaign office were Israel=Mossad de Rothschild, referring to the wealthy Jewish family as well as Macron’s work as an investment banker at the French Banque Rotschild; ”Sioniste,” French for Zionist; and “the 20 most shocking extracts of the Talmud.”
It is not the first anti-Semitic attack on Macron during the campaign.
