A person was injured on Wednesday in an explosion at a kosher supermarket in the northern Paris suburb of Sarcelles.
French police are investigating whether the blast was connected to the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo hours before the attack, or to the "Innocence of Muslims" film that has enraged the Muslim world over the past week.
The Sarcelles neighborhood is known as "Little Jerusalem" due to the large Jewish population in the area, most of them from northern Africa.
According to media reports, the supermarket was full of shoppers when at least one grenade was thrown through a window, causing property damage and injuring one person. French media reported that one or more grenades were thrown by two masked individuals.
"There is no reason to doubt the anti-Semitic nature of the act," said Richard Prasquier, president of the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions. Prasquier said the publication of the Muhammad cartoons was "irresponsible."
Israeli Information and Diaspora Minister Yuli Edelstein condemned the supermarket attack, as well as the slandering of religion.
"I utterly condemn all attempts to mock any religion, even if it is expressed in a satirical manner," Edelstein said. "However, the Muslim world will be judged by its restraint, and it won't accomplish anything if, as usual, it instinctively harasses the Jews and seeks to harm them."
