A young Israelite of fifteen would have said these words to native women whose sons, husbands, and brothers are mobilized: “The Jews are more resourceful than the French and the Arabs; instead of being killed for no reason, they stayed behind. the shelter and now come back safe and sound “. According to the report, this young girl did not appear to possess “the fullness of her mental faculties”. This type of incident makes the authorities fear an anti-Semitic movement.
