(Jewish Group) French city official received a swastika birthday cake

The Simon Wiesenthal Center has called for the firing of a city councilman from the French city of Montpelier over a birthday cake decorated with a swastika.

Montpelier councillor Djamel Boumaaz, a former member of France’s far-right National Front party, received the cake with a black swastika on a white background surrounded by cherry filling for his 40th birthday and posted a photo of it on social media. The tweet has since been removed.

The Wiesenthal Center posted a screenshot of the tweet on its Twitter page and in a statement dated July 25 called on the European Coalition of Cities Against Racism “to condemn Boumaaz and to urge the Mayor of Montpellier to take measures to remove him from his municipal functions.” The center is affiliated with the coalition.

Boumaaz has been fined in the past for performing numerous “quenelles” – an inverted Hitler salute created by anti-Semitic French comedian Dieudonne – including in the Montpelier city hall. It is an action banned by law in France.
