10 Hours Of Fear And Loathing In Paris

 

 

 

 

 

” One month after the terrorist attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris, NRG’s correspondent, wearing a tzitzit and a kippa, took what proved to be an intimidating walk across the French capital. “What is he doing here Mommy? Doesn’t he know he will be killed?” one little boy asked, saying it all .

” Go f*** from the front and the back,” “Viva Palestine,” “Hey you, with the kippa, what are you doing here?” these were only a few of the remarks sent my way as I was walking through the streets of Paris wearing a tzitzit and a kippa.

  Welcome to Paris 2015, where soldiers are walking every street that houses a Jewish institution, and where keffiyeh-wearing men and veiled women speak Arabic on every street corner. Walking down one Parisian suburb, I was asked what I doing there. In modern-day Paris, you see, Jews are barred from entering certain areas.

  For 10 hours I quietly walked down the streets and suburbs of Paris, with photographer Dov Belhassen documenting the day using a GoPro camera hidden in his backpack. Given the tensions in Paris, which is still reeling from a wave of terrorist attacks (including the murder of Charlie Hebdo magazine journalists), I was assigned a bodyguard.

  Areas known as tourist attractions were relatively calm, but the further from them we walked, the more anxious I became over the hateful stares, the belligerent remarks, and the hostile body language.”

Japan Students Swap Uniforms For ‘Sexchange Day’

 

 

 

 

 

” Students at a Japanese high school switched uniforms with the opposite gender for “Sexchange Day,” an event designed by students.

  Fuji Hokuryo High School’s Tuesday event, named for the combination of the English words“sex” and “exchange,” saw 299 students, about 40 percent of the student body, show up for school in sweats and then dress in uniforms designed for the opposite sex for the school day.

” Sexchange Day” was designed by students at the Yamanashi prefecture school and was approved by officials. The students said the event was designed to get students thinking about gender and gender identity issues.

” This is a project for students to observe things differently” Vice Principal Hirofumi Miyashita told the Wall Street Journal’s Japan Real Time.

” Vice Principal Osamu Takano said the school took steps to ensure the student body would be prepared for the experiment.

” We think the students understood the aim behind the exchange. The students who proposed it explained to the rest of the student body the concept behind it at a meeting,” he told the Yomiuri Shimbun. “

Walk On By Britain: Two Little Girls Pretend To Be Lost In A Busy Shopping Centre. So How Many People Stop To Help? One.

 

 

” One little girl was clutching her favourite toy while her younger sister was sucking her thumb – and both looked utterly lost and forlorn.

  In a bygone era, a concerned adult might have stopped to ask them where their mother was. But in a damning indictment of modern Britain, hundreds of busy people simply walked on by.

  The girls stood for an hour on a Saturday morning in a busy shopping arcade looking for ‘help’, as part of a social experiment for television.

  Hidden cameras recorded Uma, seven, and Maya, five, who took it in turns to look lost.

  Astonishingly, over the whole hour only one person, a grandmother, took a moment to find out if there was a problem. All of the 616 other passers-by completely ignored the girls.

  Heartbreakingly for the mother of the sisters – who was watching from a hiding place nearby – passing couples even split apart to walk around either side of the ‘lost’ girls and people wheeling suitcases took evasive action to avoid Maya and Uma, not thinking to check if they needed help.”
