In the cold drizzle of a dreary morning, Michel Mimouni looked on the charred ruins of the first synagogue so severely damaged in France since the Nazi occupation and struggled sadly to understand. "It's always against the Jews that such things happen," said Mimouni, 62, president of the Jewish congregation of 30 families in this gritty working-class suburb southwest of Paris. "I try to figure out why, but I can't."

A militant sheep farmer was sentenced to three months in prison for vandalizing a McDonald's restaurant in a protest that made him a hero in France in the battle against globalization. Jose Bove and his lawyers appealed the verdict, and Bove vowed that prison would not stop him from continuing his battle against multinational corporations and the World Trade Organization, which he claims pose a threat to small farmers, good food and a way of life.

A prosecutor recommended that a sheep farmer who has waged a high-profile battle against globalization receive a 10-month jail sentence, with nine months suspended, for vandalizing a McDonald's restaurant in the southern French town of Millau. Jose Bove was on trial in Millau with nine other defendants who attacked the restaurant last August during a wave of protests targeting the fast-food chain as a symbol of U.S. trade "hegemony" and economic globalization.

A vandal defaced about 250 graves in two Jewish cemeteries near Haifa early Sunday, just days after the ghoulish desecration of Jewish tombs in southern France. Police questioned a 41-year-old Jewish man who had been seen loitering in the cemeteries in recent weeks, government television and radio reported. The black spray-painted graffiti appeared to be the work of a single person. Families of the dead who are buried at the Haifa cemeteries rushed to the scene to inspect the damage.
