Posters of David Kimelfeld tagged with antisemitic inscriptions

Lyon - Antisemitic tags were discovered on Tuesday on campaign posters by David Kimelfeld, the outgoing president of the Metropolis of Lyon and candidate for his re-election. The Rhône deputy, Thomas Rudigoz, is, according to Le Progrès, the first to have alerted to these inscriptions, denouncing "an ignominy".

In a photo he publishes on Twitter, we see the poster notably tagged with a Star of David. Another poster also bears the inscription "satanist". "These anti-Semitic degradations of the posters of David Kimelfeld are abject, they recall the dark hours of our history", writes the deputy.
David Kimelfeld for his part reacted in a sentence on social networks, citing the historian and resistant Lyonnais Marc Bloch. "I never claim my origin except in one case: in front of an anti-Semite".
Several candidates for metropolitan and municipal elections supported David Kimelfeld. "The tag of David Kimelfeld's posters is a disgrace," comments the LR candidate for the Metropolis, François-Noël Buffet, who says he "strongly condemns these unacceptable actions". Georges Képénékian, unlabelled candidate for mayor of Lyon said he was "shocked and indignant" and condemned "with the greatest firmness this despicable act that conveys hatred".
