French Protesters Chant "Jews Out of France" [VIDEO]

Amid reports that anti-Semitism is continuously on the rise in France - as is the number of those leaving the country to make aliyah - a chilling video taken on the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day captures a protest attended by some 17,000 Parisians, chanting disturbingly anti-Semitic statements.

"Jews, France is not yours!" "Jews out of France" and "The story of the gas chambers is bull***!" were all among what protesters yelled as they chanted in unison. At one point they simply yelled "Jew, Jew, Jew."

Many of the protesters also demonstrate the infamous quenelle symbol, which continues to make headlines since it was popularized by anti-Semitic comedian Dieudonne M'Bala M'Bala.

Both French-born athletes Tony Parker and Nicolas Anelka have been captured on photo making the gesture, though they respectively later addressed the issue, with Parker apologizing immediately.

The gesture, though Dieudonne has expressed is only 'anti-establishment' and not anti-Semitic, has since been adopted by radical Muslim terrorists, anti-Semites, and other extremist organizations. Many have been seen making the gesture in front of synagogues, and historical locations where Jewish people were murdered, including Auschwitz, and the school in Toulouse where a terrorist murdered a rabbi and three Jewish children.

Dieudonne himself has a long history with anti-Semitism, charged eight times by the French government for hateful and anti-Semitic behaviour, notably, at his comedy shows where he's attracted a large following.

The rally was part of a 'Day of Anger,' with French police estimating approximately 17,000 in attendance. 250 were arrested, and 19 police officers were injured. In addition to the anti-Semitic slurs, they can also be seen singing a song called 'Shoananas,' which was composed by Dieudonne, and mocks the Holocaust.
