    I don't know what to make of the veracity of this report. I just read in this morning edition of "Provence", a local newspaper here near Marseille, a statement for the event organizer asking Horowitz to take back his claim that he was beaten or beaten unconcious. He claims that Horowitz was indeed harassed by some youth one of whom punched him in the jaw, but that the kids, who were chased away (not apprehended), did NOT appear to be Arabic to the local people. My guess is that, if the teenagers were "inebriated", they are locals and the police will nab them. If they are not locals, there is a distinct possibility they were ISRAELIS. In any case, the French event organizers said Horowitz refused medical treatment at the hospital, offered by the police. Now we read in Haaretz that he was knocked unconscious by a "band of Arab youth"?
