FRANCE - Russian FSB Behind Antisemitic Graffiti

J. Froese

French prosecutors reported in November that 60 [Star of David graffiti] had been found in the capital and surrounding suburbs weeks into the war between Israel and Hamas, with the graffiti being interpreted as a threat to Jews.

France’s international security service DGSI believes the operation was run by the FSB’s fifth division that undertakes international operations, the source said, quoting from a secret internal note that was first revealed by the Le Monde newspaper. The FSB is the main successor agency to the Soviet Union’s KGB.

In the suburb of Saint-Ouen, the stars were accompanied by inscriptions such as “Palestine will overcome.”

Le Monde said the alleged FSB operation was part of a wider disinformation campaign that also targeted Poland, Spain, Germany, Romania and Austria.

Commentary

This is a really strange story involving France, Russia, Moldova, Ukraine, Israel, probably even the Middle Eastern and North African countries from which many immigrants in France originate. This graffiti could be considered agitprop (agitation propaganda) aimed to incense France’s significant Muslim immigrant population.

While we believe Gog and Magog of the Bible points to Russia, it is interesting that the final “Gog and Magog” will deceive the nations: “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea” (Revelation 20:7-8). -By J.
