Jewish boss fined for ‘no Arabs’ job advert in France

27th Jun 2013

The advert posted at a job centre in the eastern suburbs of Paris stipulated that Jean-Luc Benady would not employ North Africans and led to a prosecution for discrimination on the grounds of race and religion.

 

After being found guilty and fined at a court in the small town of Bobigny, an unrepentant Benady described the way he had framed the advert as a “precautionary measure.”

 

As a Jew, he argued, he was justified in regarding every member of France’s North African population as a potential threat because each of them “could have a father or a brother who doesn’t like Jews.”
