PARIS (JTA) — Unidentified individuals ransacked a kosher restaurant in Paris on Thursday night, destroying tables and windows and painting swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans on the walls.
The Union of Jewish Students of France, or UEJF, posted a video to Twitter showing the damage on Friday.

The phrases spray painted on the walls of Mac Queen hamburger restaurant on Manin St. of the 19th district of Paris included “Hitler was right,” “Jewish homos,” “Jews get out” and “Free Palestine.”
French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin quickly denounced the incident, and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo wrote on Twitter: “I condemn with the utmost firmness this hateful act of vandalism. The Jewish community has my full support. We will not tolerate this.”
